They all work in the role.

Frank Welker is a highlight of the 70's Fantastic Four cartoon. Sure, it sounds like his Mr. Mxyzptlk voice, but it actually fits him.

Terry Klassen sounds obnoxious, sure, but it works for the little kid version he was portraying. Plus, I like his naivety. It's a good performance from him.

Tom Kenny works really well. One of the highlights from Avengers Assemble.

Jess Harnell is perfect in this role. I really love his fast-talking delivery and also love his impression of William Shatner. One of the best performances from the 90's Fantastic Four cartoon.

4. Frank Welker

Lee Tockar and Peter Kelamis would work as the Impossible Man.

Jess Harnell without a doubt is the perfect Impossible Man, he shows off so much versatility in his performance doing great impressions of Shatner and his fast talking and comedic delivery is just great.

Tom Kenny is really good too though he kinda sounds a bit too camp for the role.

Terry Klassen sounds really obnoxious, he acts like a little kid which works really well though it can get tiresome.

Frank Welker is probably my least favourite, probably because It's basically the same voice he used for Mr. Mxyzptlk in The Super Friends series. I find it too distracting especially with how similar these two characters can be.

Yup going with Jess Harnell on this one.

BONUS: I could see Rob Paulsen, Eric Bauza, Bumper Robinson, James Carter Cathcart or Greg Ayres working really well as Impossible Man.

I'm tied with Terry and Tom, but for different reasons.

Terry does sound annoying but I'm pretty sure that was intentional. Plus I like his naivety. Tom however has some great energy to him.

Tom Kenny gets my vote,his wacky voice and high energiezed talking is just how i imagined the original comic book version to sound like

Terry Klassen is also very good,but maybe a bit young sounding,but iot works for the small annoying creature take he was intending

Jess and Frank are decent too,but their tapes are a bit dated,atoulgh Jess voiced Impossibleman more recently in SHSS i thought his voice there didnt really match that well.

Overall in this rare situacion,i say all 4 did well,but i still think Toms the best

I always thought Tom Kenny should voice Impossible Man (though I always heard him using his SpongeBob voice actually oh well...) Tom gets my vote.

I think Candi Milo (a la her Cheese voice) would make a pretty good Impossible Man.

This is a really tough one. I think all four VAs did great in the role! Jess and Tom are going for the more "standup comic"-portrayal, while Frank and Terry have a more naive tone to their voice. Terry's is by far the most irritating (in the best possible way), with Tom in a close second.

I wish I could vote for all of them, but I think Terry's gonna' steal the vote.

I'll go with Terry Klassen. He made IM sound like an annoying, irritating ####, which suits him IMO.

Impossible Man sounded A LITTLE like Wakko at the beginning, but I am going with Jess.

Jess Harnell is the best. Also his version reminds of Genie from the Disney version of Aladdin. Imagine if those ever met lol.

I think Jesse Harnell is the best just because he brings more to the character. He's funny and clearly has more energy for the role.
Terry did a younger version and was more an annoying little brother. I'm not saying thats bad though just saying it's different.
Frank's was..well he wasn't my favorite but wasn't really that bad.
Like I said, Jess hands down.
