Sirola is my favorite. He reminds me a lot of Joseph Culp's Doom. But almost everyone does a great job nonetheless.

My Top 5:
1) Sirola
2) Lang
3) Tatasciore
4) LaMarche
5) Stephenson

I also liked Vernon, Ross, Revill, Dobson and Adler.

Clive Revill nails all the aspects of Doom's character in every way: Regal, arrogant, mystical, and powerful, not to mention wise. Out of all the other VA's on the list, Maurice LaMarche is the person who comes close to topping Revill.

Ralph James, Paul Dobson, and to an extent Lorne Kennedy are enjoyable, yet far too modulated under thick vocal effects to call fully suitable performances.

Shepard Menken, Chris Britton, and especially Fred Tatasciore all had potential, but they all go a little too over the top to take serious. Doom is a hammy villain, yes, but one with finesse and subtlety as well.

The three VA's from the 94 animated series (John Vernon, Neil Ross, and Simon Templeman) have their own merits and are suitable fits, but I'd have to say Neil Ross' performance is the worst, due to somewhat stilted delivery. John and Simon are equally good, but a tad bit too light.

Now we get to Lex Lang. It's an intimidating voice, sure, but I find it to be too young sounding. Not a bad casting, and it would work just fine for Ultimate Doom of the Ultimate Marvel Universe, but not for the older, experienced version.

Tom Kane and Charlie Adler both fall victim to the voices they're putting on. Whereas Tom only focuses on the accent and sounds far too light, Charlie is far too raspy and overplayed. I think Tom would fare better, if he took the role in a completely different direction.

The rest are terrible. Whether it be bland and lifeless sounding (Julian ,Gideon, John Stephenson, and the UVA), or the pitch being completely wrong (Joseph Sirola), none hold any power or presence to their performances whatsoever.

 4 Shout Outs! [?]
1. Clive Revill - Perfect, just... perfect. He nails every single aspect of Doom. He sounds threatening, intelligent, arrogant, royal, powerful and just right amount of hammy.

2. Paul Dobson - He sounded little bit too deep and robotic for my taste, but he did really good job with Doom's character.

3. Lex Lang - He really captured menacing side of the Doom, but his voice was maybe litle bit too evil. Doom might be evil tyrant, but he also has his honorable side.

4. Fred Tatasciore - Really good voice and performance. I would love to hear Fred reprise the role in something more serious where he would get more juicier material to work with.

5. Simon Templeman/John Vernon - Both of them have really fitting voices for Doom, but their performances suffer from bad writing and voice directing.

6. Ralph James - Pretty good for 80s cartoon. Not big fan of the effect and I do wish that he was little bit deeper.

7. Chris Britton - Voice is pretty good, but he is waaaaaaayyyyyyy too hammy. Sure, Doom is very hammy villain, but Chris' permonce is so hammy that I can't take him as serious as a threat.

8. Neil Ross - Voice is fine, but performance is rather bland.

9. Maurice LaMarche/Tom Kane - Both are amazing voice actors, but they were miscast here badly. LaMarche doesn't sound menacing at all and every time he speaks I hear Calculon. Kane's voice is too soft and he overdid the accent.

10. Charlie Adler - I admit that his is just my personal bias talking, since I really dislike TSHSS and the way Doom was written in it. Objectively speaking Charlie does pretty good over-the-top and comedic villain role, but it just doesn't do it for me. Even with Fred's lego game performance there was some sense to menace to his voice. I also don't think that Doom should sound raspy.

11. Gideon Emery - Is kinda hard to be mad at the actor since the movie-Doom was horrible from the day one, but fact still stands that his voice is too soft and seriously lacks any menace or authority factor.

12. Julian McMahon - Every single problem I had with Emery is thousand times worse with McMahon. People who complain that Mandarin in Iron Man 3 is the worst movie version of comic book villain, clearly haven't watched Tim Story's F4 movies.

13. Lorne Kennedy - Kinda hard to say anything about him, since his clip is just mostly battle grunts. I supposed he sound too much like robot.

14. Shepard Menken - His too high voice and robot effect kill all the menca factor.

15. John Stephenson - He sound sound like old man, not a evil tyrant. Also, is it just me or does he sound like Leonard Nimoy?

16. Joseph Sirola - I take it back! Menken wasn't too high, this huy is!

17. UVA - Did they kidnap some random guy from the streets? This guy sound bored out of his mind!

Well, out of the given choices I (blasted) GAK! "FOOL THE ONLY ONE WORTHY TO NAME DOOM'S VOICE ACTORS IS DOOM HIMSELF!!!"

1. Clive Revill-THE PERFECT PORTAYAL OF DOOM! STRONG, ELOQUENT, POWERFUL, DEMANDING RESPECT. REVILL IS THE IDEAL DOOM!
2. Paul Dobson (MvC3 version)-ONLY BENEATH REVILL BECAUSE HE WASN'T GIVEN THE CHANCE TO PLAY ME WHEN I AM SUBTLE. DOOM WOULD EXPECT NOTHING LESS FROM THE ONE WHO PLAYED NARAKU.
3. Fred Tatasciore-THOUGH IT MEANS I SHARE A VOICE WITH THE GREEN BRUTE, THE BLUE APE AND THE ACCURSED BEN GRIMM, TATASCIORE GIVES ME A GRANDOSE AIR, POWER AND FORCE, WHILE RETAINING DIGNITY IN SOMETHING S PATHETIC AS A LEGO GAME (I actually love that game ACH!) SILENCE!!!
4. Lex Lang and Chris Britton-BOTH ARE VERY SOLID PORTAYALS OF DOOM AND GIVE ME GREAT REASPECT. BOTH ARE QUITE EVEN IN PERFORMANCE AND STRENGTH. DOOM'S CONDOLENCES FOR THE EXELLENT PORTAYALS.
5. Maurice LaMarche-THOUGH LESS GRAND THAN PREVIOUSE PORTAYALS OF MYSELF AND TAKING TIME TO ADJUST TO, LAMARCHE DOES STILL RETAIN MY POWER AND STRENGTH, IF HOW GRANDIOUS DOOM IS.

THOSE ARE THIS ONE'S CHOICES TO VOICE DOOM. NOW IF YOU EXCUSE DOOM, HE MUST MEET MEGATRON, THE BRAIN, NARAKU AND MAGNETO FOR OUR ANNUAL POKER GAME. THEN ON TO DESTROY THAT ACCURSED RRRRIIIIIICCCCHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRDDDDDSSSSS!!!!!!!!

How is Lex Lang tied at with Clive at the moment? I don't hate EMH, but Lex lacks everything Doom should be. He nails the threatening vibe, but he doesn't sound loud, booming, or in-your-face like Doom should be.
TylerMirage (Admin)
said at 10:31 PM on Sun Dec 15 2013
@LordofEvil96 I dunno, I mean, take a listen to all of the VAs here. How many of them really exhibit that "loud, booming, in-your-face"-voice like you describe? Paul, obviously. And Charlie is loud and obnoxious, but the others? Very few of them are how you personally picture Doom to sound.

For me, Doom doesn't have to be deep and loud and booming. Can he be? Sure. But Doom is a tyrant, a leader of an entire country, one who is politically immune and lives alone in his solemn castle. A more quiet, reserved, toned-down voice like Lang or LaMarche fits Doom too. Doom is rarely a character who is out of control. He is in no rush, he knows that he'll get WHAT he wants WHEN he wants it. Doom is content to sit on his throne because he knows he is in control. But if he has to get up and get his hands dirty, he will. Just my thoughts. :)

I don't have a perfect choice for him, but I do like Clive Revill, Simon Templeman, Lex Lang and Ralph James.

I've read people suggest Corey Burton, David Kaye and Michael McConnohie for Doom, and I think they'd be great choices.

While not "perfect" Fred was pretty damn good! He could have just used his normal voice but the slight accent is nice (even if it's not great, sometimes he slips in and out).
He has the power for the voice and even though Dr. Doom's not SUPPOSE to make me laugh but Fred had some good delivery on some jokes. The line "Really with the banging? Really?" makes me chuckle.
Fred could so work for a more serious Doom

I have not had an ideal Doom QUITE yet, but Lex Lang is so far my favorite. Him and Simon Templeman are tied, at least. I don't really like Maurice LaMarche's Doom. Doesn't sound deep nor powerful enough for me.

However, there are three VAs in particular that I want to play Doctor Doom--

1) Steve Blum (after hearing his Count Vertigo, I thought to myself, "now THIS is a Doctor Doom I could get behind!")

2) John Noble (I hate to typecast such magnificent talent (as much as I do say he would make a better Ultron in The Avengers 2 than James Spader...) but that kind of power in his Brainiac and Unicron voices would be perfect.)

3) David Kaye (Apocalypse from X-Men: Evolution... that voice he did was GODLY. And it is a voice like THAT which would work great for Doom: deep, arrogant, powerful and almost godly. Also, perhaps add elements of his Megatron performance as well.)

Only reason I do not list Clancy Brown or Corey Burton here (I would love them to do Doom as well) is because I'd prefer for Clancy to play The Thing and Corey to voice Magneto.

1. Clive Revill - He has a fine accent and the perfect blend of deepness, malovelance, intelligence, and sophistication needed for the ultimate supervillain.
2. Simon Templeman - VERY much close to Revill in perfection. He has a calculating, scheming quality to his voice and his performance just oozes arrogance.
3. Lex Lang - Is similar to Templeman in how calculating and arrogant he sounds, but also sounds a bit...younger. But still a very strong performance.
4. Tom Kane - Ignoring how high pitched the clip is, I think the voice and acting is great here, and he's a worthy stand-in for Templeman. The problem is the accent. Was he going for Bela Lugosi or Ricardo Montalban here?
5. Maurice LeMarche - Not as memorable as the four I've mentioned, but very powerful and intidimating. The echo in his voice really helps here.
6. Ralph James - A precursor to LeMarche. Also has a powerful voice and great echo, and his performance actually holds up well.
7. Chris Britton - Very well acted and menacing, but a bit too similar to his Mr Sinister.
8. Paul Dobson - Good, but would be better if his voice wasn't filtered to be so unnaturally deep.
9. Neil Ross - He was okay.
10. Charlie Adler - As a comedic Doom, he works.

All the rest flat out suck. Joseph Sirola is completely ill fitting, Shepard Menkan is laughably hammy, I don't know what John Vernon was thinking but his voice sounds too light and overdone, Julian McMahon sucked in the movie and he sucked in the game, John Stephenson sounds like a grumpy old man, Lorne Kennedy sounds robotic, and the UVA is unknown for a reason.

@Galactic_Cyrus I now add Fred Tatasciore to the list of good Dooms and Gideon Emery to the list of bad Dooms. To be fair to the latter, he could have been better were he not imitating Julian McMahon.

John Vernom-to light and a bit hammy,and does a poor job with the accent
Simon Templeman-probably the best out of the 4 dooms from 1994,he sounds more calculating and mildly menacing,but still has a tad of 90s hamines to it,still a decent performance
Neil Ross-he does sound deep,but still a little bit forced and hammy,and tries a little to much with the accent,overall and okay performance
Tom Kane-definantlly the worst of the 4,he sound to hight,goes overboard with the accent and is all around just campy,even for 90s standars hes to campy
Julian McMahon-complet bull****,do I even need to say how bland he sounds or how he has no emocions in his voices,while Kane at least tried and faied,McMahon didn’t even try.
Clive Revill-kind of sounds to pompous,and also a bit hammy
Paul Dobson-definantlly one of the better performences,but maybe a bit to deep,im pretty sure this clip isn’t his best moment in the show
Lorne Kennedy-I cant make out anything he says,no can I make out his voice,could yo aploud a recording where his,you know actually speaks.
Chris Britton-definantlly one of the better,he sound deep and menacing enough,but a bit to gravelly
Lex Lang-out of all of them he sounds the most like what I imagined doom to sound like,calculating and menacing,my only problem is that his voice isn’t deep enoung and he sound a bit to young,still probably the best dr.doom on this compare,and a another example of EMH uncanny ability to be spot on with their casting choices.
Maurice LaMarche-Ultimate spiderman,among many other sins,is notorious for its miscasting,and doom is no exception, I really had high hopes for LaMarche,but he disappointed me,he sound to light,to soft and times to stuck up and snobbish,and over all his voice lacks any menace,and just one more miscasting example on this list
Overall im going with Lex Lang,with Britton and Dobson tied as second,the others are just disappointing
Can you please aploud Fred Tatasciores Dr.Doom from the the recent avengers game,I want to hear his take on the character.
As for Charlie Adlers cartoony doom,I liked he did a very funny and energized performance that suited that version,but of course he couldn’t possibly voice the real deal.

I personally like both his MvC3 voice and this one about equally. I guess I like his FFWGH clip a little better though, since he gets to savor his dialogue a little more. Anyway, yeah, I totally feel he deserves to lead the poll.

If there's one thing I've learned from the comments on this compare it's that the choices for actors to voice Doom are endless! We could cast Clancy Brown, Tim Curry, Richard McGonagle, Corey Burton, Scottie Ray, or even John Noble as Doom. And the funny part about all those choices is all those actors would rock as Doom.

@LordofEvil96 I think that given the right voice director and material, Tim could probably do a serious Doom. But the most likely case would be a Doom in a more light-hearted, comedic fashion, akin to Charlie in The Super Hero Squad Show. I'd be happy with either scenario. :D

I've decided to make my new icon the glorious visage of DOOM! To celebrate I am going to give my thoughts on all of these actors from the top down.

1.Joseph Sirola: First off, that picture of Doom looks very, VERY derpy. As for Joseph's performance, bleh. His voice is too light and he just has a weird way of speaking, it's hard to describe.

2.Ralph James: Pretty good. A little light for my tastes, but a decent performance overall. It kind of surprises me since I've found the acting from that Spider-Man show to not be very good.

3.Shepard Menken: Not that good. He likes any real power in his voice and seems to only have one tone of voice.

4.John Vernon: Again, not that good. His voice is too light and I swear he has a lisp or something.

5.Simon Templeman: Much better. He sounds very menacing and even a bit deranged at times. One of my favorites.

6.Tom Kane: Far too cheesy for my taste. His accent sounds ridiculous. Tom's Magneto is much better.

7.Julian McMahon: Movie Doom, bleh. He sounds far too flat. I can't tell what his emotion he was supposed to be expressing in that clip.

8.Clive Revill: He certainly has plenty of power and attitude behind his voice. What holds him back for me is that in the Gold Edition of Ultimate Alliance you can play as Doom and his battle quotes are not very good. He sounds much older and his delivery is off.

9.Paul Dobson:(FF:WGH) Pretty good, but not that good. I've been complaining about several of these voices being to light and Paul took it to the opposite extreme.

10.Charlie Adler: He works for Doom in Superhero Squad. I'm just not a fan of that characterization.

11.John Stephenson: His voice is pretty generic and doesn't have any kind of power to it.

12.Neil Ross: Pretty good. He did a good job on the accent, but he could be a bit inconsistent.

13.Lorne Kennedy: Not really special in any way. he wasn't very good, but certainly wasn't bad.

14:Unknown: Whoever this is he's by far the worst Doom. He sounds kind of like Peter Lorre and the way he enunciated some words was really weird.

15.Chris Britton: His voice is very menacing and his acting was strong. My only complaint is with his accent, it sounds more German than anything and he keeps slipping out of it.

16.Lex Lang: Lex's Doom is very different. He sounds colder and more calculating. Overall he did a very good job, although I don't carefor the effects they used.

17.Maurice LaMarche: I honestly don't like Maurice's Mr. Freeze that much(He was still good though), but he did a great job with Doom. He sounds very laid back, but you can still tell he's still very powerful.

So, who's my favorite? That would be someone who i s both on this list and yet not on it. Paul Dobson in Marvel vs Capcom 3, holy crap he was fantastic. He was loud, arrogant, and powerful. It was exactly like how I have always pictured Doom as sounding like. I even thought the effects on his voice were perfect. I don't think it's even possible for anyone to top him. And there you have it, my opinion on all of Doom's voice listed here. I just wish we had a good sample of Fred Tatasciore from that Avengers game, I bet he was great.

1: Clive Revill (this is how I've always pictured Doom; a deep menacing, arrogant filled voice with an accent. Revill was probably my favorite voice in Marvel: Ultimate Alliance. He was absolutely brilliant).

2: Lex Lang (Lang got everything down that Revill had... Minus the accent. So that's why he's second. But he was great none the less. Loved that whole episode in general! He pleasently surprised me).

3: Mariuce LaMarche (Another great performance of LaMarche's already amazing work. He greatly showed the menace of Doom, but the only downside is that his voice reminds me of Mr. Freeze from Arkham City. Bit distracting).

4: Simon Templeman (Loved Simon's acting in this episode especially. He really got the overly dramatic side of Doom. Only problem, was his voice was too high, lacking the deep menace).

The problem I have with Lex is that he sounds too calm and doesn't always speak of himself in the third person.
Clive is louder, but also lacks the 3rd person aspect.
Paul Dobson embodies everything that Doom resembles in the comics (or should): He always shouts, always refers to himself as Doom and has an accent. Plus, his voice couldn't be more majestic. I really hope he gets to voice Doom more often.

My opinion in no order is...

I like Chris Britton the most, his deep voice mixed with the effects is really menacing and the accent just makes it even better. His performance fits the royal tone Doom should have and sounds powerful

Lex Lang isn't bad, sounds a tad bit young though and I wish he tried an accent.

I like Maurice but he seems wooden and stiff, not one of his better roles. It's not the worst but I've hear better.

Clive Revill is my second favorite, he sounds regal but the deep powerful voice that sounds commanding, when he says 'Fools' he sounds really menacing. If I had to nitpick I'd but thicker effects but it's still good.

Charlie is the highest voice but he does well, grant it the show made Doom anything but a threat and the writing made Charlie go over the top too much but when he's talking slowly and calmly he sounds really good.

Ralph James is good as well, could have been deeper though but still sounds comanding and powerful but still regal.

Tome Kane needed effects on his voice and iut would have been better, I like he did an accent.

All three of the 1994 FF Dooms were good with sounding elegent but powerful and sinister. I do think Simon was the better of the three due to sounding more threatening but I like all of them

The rest are okay, pretty much generic villaisn their acceptable but nothing special.

However Julian is the weakest, he sounds wooden and bored and with no effects or accent he comes off generic

I'm gonna go with the majority and say Clive Revill's the best, though Paul Dobson and Chris Britton are also pretty good.

@TheVengeanceKnight Lex Lang doesn't do much for me; he's not as menacing as someone like Paul Dobson.

@TheVengeanceKnight Maurice LaMarche is pretty decent as Doom. Definitely makes up for Lex Lang's lackluster performance.

@TheVengeanceKnight I have since changed my vote to Paul Dobson. Regardless of his villain decay in WGH, the deep voice was really menacing and suited him, and I hope he gets to play Doom again in a future animated series.

Well, they're all better than McMahon, but the best for me are Templeman and Adler.

I love Templeman because he doesn't bother with a goofy Eastern European accent and just concentrates on being an excellent villainous ham with that awesome voice.

Adler is one of the highlights of Super Hero Squad's regular cast, making Doom wonderfully silly but juuuuuust threatening enough.

I'm gonig with everyone else and saying that Clive Revill is the best of the bunch as he did have the right amount of menace Doom should have. Simon Templeman was pretty good, too. Julian McMahon was miscast in both the game and the actual movies.

@Anicomicgeek Now that it's been updated, I'm gonna give it to Lex Lang since he had a cool voice for Doom. That said, Clive Revill and Simon Templeman are still good, as is Paul Dobson, though I prefer his work in MvC3 over his work in WGH.

I don't care for him on the show, but I'm going with Dobson for his work in Marvel vs Capcom 3.

Unknown Guy - Sounds a bit generic; this could be the voice for just about any other villain.
Joseph Sirola - Um... no?
John Stephenson - Not bad as far as performance goes, but, like the Unknown VA, it's just a generic villain voice.
Ralph James & Shepard Menken - A step in the right direction.
John Vernon - Nothing special, but still better than Joseph.
Simon Templeman - He's okay, I guess.
Neil Ross - Definitely an improvement over the last few VAs. He sounds more villainous, with his deeper voice and thicker accent.
Tom Kane - Better than the VAs for the 90's FF cartoon (except for Neil Ross), but not as good as the ones from the other Spider-Man cartoons. Overall, he's pretty meh.
Lorne Kennedy - Kind of a generic robotic voice, but it could be a lot worse, considering the other VAs from the early Marvel vs. Capcom games.
Julian McMahon - I'll give him the benefit of the doubt; I remember him sounding better as Doom in the actual movie.
Paul Dobson - This guy's probably my favorite Doom VA... moreso in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, but it's pretty good in FF too.
Clive Revill - I like him. He's good at sounding menacing, which is what a lot of these VAs fail to accomplish.
Charlie Adler - He does a more comical/hammy version of Doctor Doom... as well as smaller, so I suppose his higher pitched voice makes sense. Keeping this in mind, he excelled at being both menacing and comical when he needed to be. Overall, another one of my favorite VAs for Doom and one of the best performances on the show, IMO.

Simon Templeman, then Clive Revill, then Tom Kane, then Ralph James, and then Paul Dobson in that order. All the rest either don't quite fit or flat out suck.

@camille_shs No offense but...Julian McMahon sucked. The guy's supposed to be European and he doesn't sound the part at all. It doesn't help that the Doom he was playing was a coorperate executive rather than an evil overlord of his own country.

You know, before watching F4 movie(2005) i didnt take any interest in Doc Doom, but after Marvel Ultimate Aliance and reading his biography i started adoring this character. Marvel Animation should make a realy good dr. doom movie. Seriosly not a mad scientist/power hungry kind of Doom, but a sinister and calculative Doom, and show all his inteligence, science and magic powers not a evil laugh.
I'm thinking of Dr. Strange/Dr. Doom:Triumph and Torment-that baby deserves to be in animation.
Come on Marvel, put up your fists and start adapting comics-show DC you mean business.

Simon Templeman is the perfect voice for Doom.
He made him sound sinister/inteligent/voice fit for a king(as Doom should be).
Second favourite voice is Clive Revill(a classic villain voice).
The rest made him sound like a mad scientist.

Who is voicing Dr. Doom there?
Some sites say its David Kaye, but others Troy Baker(since he will have that role in avengers).

I'm surprised so many people like Julian McMahon's voice here when it's not even his Doctor Doom voice.

All McMahon's clip is just his Victor von Doom voice, Foxwolf couldn't find any "Doom clips".

IMO he was great in the films but this clip of his isn't a great example of his work.
