Voice Compare » DC Universe » General Wade Eiling

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of General Wade Eiling with sound clips and images.
General Wade Eiling is a DC Comics antagonist whom eventually becomes a Super-Villain whose comic book debut was in Captain Atom #1 in March of 1987. General Wade is a military strategist whom was involved in the atomic experiments that have created Captain Atom and Major Force whom was originally a normal human whom would use his position to manipulate others into doing his work. However Wadel is also known for turning himself into an enormous and super strong monster to crush down any super hero in his path (though the methods why he managed to get such a form differ on which story we are taking about). When Wade is in his monstrous new form he is generally known as the General and while he is simply known as a foe of the Justice League he is initially known as a primary foe of Captain Atom.

EDITOR'S OPINION

Today on the DC universe VC section we take a look at this not-so good General... WADE EILING! Lets begin shall we?

JK Simmons- JK's voice for the role suits on how Wade is an old general in the US Military rather well as his performance does suit Wade's manipulative nature. Granted in this show Wade is a fairly unsubtle jab at paranoid right wing people in the military whom wants to get rid of anything he thinks is a threat and JK plays this part off rather well if I do say so myself.

Jeff Bennett- Jeff's Southern accented voice for the role does actually kind of work for the role in its own way. While Wade Eiling is generally known as a Villain (even when he is a normal human being) but to be honest I actually think its kind of interesting that Jeff is playing Wade as a good guy. Granted unlike JLU Wade has so far only had a few lines in one episode in Young Justice but Jeff's work on the role does make him an interestingly different take on the role.

Overall I liked them both as they both play the role well in their own way.

I prefer J.K. Simmons. Jeff is alright, but that voice is a little eh to me. Not sure how to really describe it.

BTW, Clancy Brown will be playing Eiling on the Flash series on the CW.

JK takes it, but y'know who'd make a perfect Eiling?

I find it hilarious that even though Greg Weisman co-created General "Eeling", YJ's "Eeling" in that episode was less comics-accurate than JLU's.

But then again, considering Greg's affinity for the character, he could always bring him in for a future episode and serve a more comics-accurate version of the General.

@TheVengeanceKnight How was he less accurate?

@D.A.V.E. Wasn't he more of a villain in the comics? In YJ, he seemed to be on the side of the heroes. Granted, that was just a simulation and the tie-in comic portrays him as much more of a prick, but still.

@TheVengeanceKnight Desperate times do unite desperate people. :P

And yeah, the tie-in does have him much closer to how he's in the comics. Too bad we won't see more that sub-plot since the tie-in's getting cancelled.

I'm going with J.K. Simmons here since I feel he was the best and could work as a more traditional version of Eiling. I like Jeff Bennett and I know Greg Weisman helped with Eiling when he was introduced--but I don't picture Eiling sounding like Azmuth from the Ben 10 sequel series with a Southern accent.

As much as I liked JK Simmons in Portal 2, he just sounds really indistinct here. Bennett's voice for the character is much easier to pick out in a crowd, so I'm going with him.

Bennett's clip is hilarious. My vote goes to Simmons, though.

J.K. Simmons did a good job. But Bennett is closer to the actual character in the comics. So, I'm voting for him..

Well, "Young Justice" is run by the guy who co-created Eiling, and would know best what to do with him.
