Voice Compare » Fantastic Four » Crystal

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Crystal with sound clips and images.
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.

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.

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!

I'm going with Kim Mai Guest.

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