Crystal is a member of the Inhumans and she first appeared in Fantastic Four #45 (December 1965). Crystal's full name is Crystalia Amaquelin and she is the younger sister of Medusa and by relation, a member of the Attilan royal family. She would be romantically involved with the Human Torch, though their relationship would have many setbacks. She would become a temporary member of the Fantastic Four during the Invisible Woman's pregnancy and she would fight the likes of Doctor Doom and Mole Man. She would later marry the Avengers member Quicksilver and give birth to their daughter, Luna. After being exposed to the Terrigen Mists, Crystal gained the ability to control the elements of air, water, earth, and fire.

EDITOR'S OPINION

For today's Fantastic Four's Voice Compare, we look at another member of the Inhuman Royal Family and Medusa's sister, Crystal:

Nancy Wible - Nancy did fine as Crystal. She gives Crystal a more soft-spoken voice which works for the character and the show.

Kathy Ireland - Kathy was great as Crystal, as she plays her as a naive wander. It's a fine performance from her.

Kim Mai Guest - Kim was also great as Crystal, portraying her as more of a liason for the Inhumans and giving a more serious and businesslike tone for Crystal.

Mary Faber - She also did fine as Crystal. She does fine as the naive newcomer to the outer walls of Attilan. It was good.

In conclusion, all the actresses did great as Crystal, though I'm leaning towards Kathy and Kim more.

Sticking with Kim Mai Guest, though Vanessa Marshall was also good.

This compare is very interesting. Quite a bit of variety.

I'm going to say this. Both Nancy & Kathy don't sound right at all. Nancy sounds like a background character from Scooby Doo & Kathy is overacting.

I'm actually calling it a tie between Kim Mai Guest & Kelly Sherridan. They both work very well as Crystal.

Mary Faber is quite bland at times, but she's far from the worst. There is some potential here.

Vanessa Marshall is inconsistent. There are times where it switches from the young girl voice into her natural voice. But at least it's not a complete mismatch like her Mary Jane voice for example.

Kim Mai Guest sounds quite soft-spoken and youthful in the role. I love how she adds a little bit of seriousness into the role as well.

Kelly Sheridan hits the same notes as Kim. She sounds a little bit more mature, but still fit quite well.

Nancy Wible does have some innocence in her take, but unfortunately, the direction in that particular show was pretty awful. She could have been better.

Kathy Ireland kinda sounds a little bit too girly for Crystal. She isn't awful or anything, but she lacks the regalness needed for the character.

Mary Faber, like Kathy, lacks the regal sound, which is a shame. Once again, I think she has a lot of potential.

Vanessa Marshall is the opposite of Nancy, Kathy and Mary in that she has the regalness, but the innocence is gone.

Kelly Sheridan is a breath of fresh air as this character, because she doesn't sound like the typical nice girl. It's a nuanced performance that adds depth to the character, so I'm voting for her.

1. Kim Mai Guest
She captures the youth and certain innocence of the character, but also remembers that she is a part of royal family.

2. Kelly Sheridan
She is playing more mature and serious version of the character, but does good job with that. While her speech in the clip is little corny on paper, her delivery makes it feel beliable.

3. Mary Faber
Bland. Not much else to say really.

4. Nancy Wible/Kathy Ireland
Both are really overplaying the youthful innocence and they end up sounding more like caricatures than actual human beings.

@The Doctor
I couldn't do a better list myself. The only difference I'd do is put Nancy under Kathy just because Nancy sounds like she's reading straight from the script.

@Music Meister I forgot you had made that comment, and I stumbled across that image and was like "LOL, she has "Ugh, Mom, stop trying to act cool"-look.

Get a good chuckle whenever I look at that pic.

@Music Meister That's definitely worth a shoutout. And you're right. It does look like that.

I liked both Kathy Ireland & Mary Faber but I have to go with Mary. I felt she was more down to earth & her take on Medusa was fabulous & a lot better than Iona Morris!

Nancy sounds like a robot. Going with Kathy Ireland. I think hers is the most accurate.
