Fantastic Four

Voice Compare » Fantastic Four » Mr. Fantastic

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Mr. Fantastic with sound clips and images.
Mr. Fantastic is the superhero identity of Reed Richards. He is the leader of the Fantastic Four, husband of Susan Storm / Invisible Woman, and brother-in-law of Johnny Storm / Human Torch.

Mr. Fantastic is one of the smartest beings on Earth and his super power is elasticity; which allows his body to stretch and form into almost any shape he wants (usually for offensive or defensive situations).

His superpower was gained from exposure to the cosmic rays in space. Like all other members of the Fantastic Four his identity is publicly known to the world.

Despite not liking Super Hero Squad, I have to go with James as the perfect Mr. Fantastic. I like every1 else except:

Cam as his voice was way to soft.
Mike as he sounded like an old man.
Gerald as his voice was a bit gruff.

My vote goes to James Masters

I'm going to be the odd one out and vote for Robert Clotworthy.

Yes! Hiro's Back in the Lead!

@LordofEvil96 Well, that didn't last long.

@VctrBnsn Only matter of time before the VO god that is Dee Bradley Baker takes the lead that is again. ;-D

@TheVengeanceKnight Perhaps you're right. Ugh. What is it with the EMH cast that everyone likes? I'm not saying that EMH is a bad show, but people have to have some variety. Which is why I voted for Hiro, it's not that he was bad. I just think the clip doesn't do him enough justice.

@LordofEvil96 Not always the EMH cast. Brian Dobson is still in the lead as Thing.

As much as I enjoyed World's Greatest Heroes, I will admit Hiro was one of the show's weakest voices.

I'm actually going with James Marsters

Hiro is my favourite for Mr. Fantastic, but that clip really doesn't do his performance any justice.

As much as I like Dee, his performance is another misfire from EMH IMO.
said at 4:28 PM on Sat Jun 8 2013
Dee's just using his normal voice but has just lowered it down is all, Hiro's voice is a little deep and his acting is slightly bland.
I'm actually giving this to Ioan Gruffudd, as I felt his acting was good and made Richards seem intelligent and caring.

Maybe it's just that clip, but Hiro Kanagawa sounds really bland and emotionless. I'm going with Dee Bradley Baker
said at 12:09 PM on Wed May 29 2013
@TheGreenSpeedster I have to say I never liked Hiro as Reed, he never sounded natural to me. He always sounded, bored. It's not just the clip, that's how he usually is.
said at 6:11 AM on Sat Jun 1 2013
@VctrBnsn How opinions can differ. i for one don't think Dee is as good as some people think. For my ears, he sounds a bit too high and partially nasal.
said at 2:46 PM on Sat Jun 1 2013
@GerPer92 Dee isn't my favorite either. He works, but he's not my fav. His voiced sounded more suited for Hank Pym. I like James Marsters for some reason, as well as David Naughton. They have a voice I always imagined the character would have.

I might be the odd man out, but I really like James Marsters. I would love to see him do a more serious version.
said at 4:08 PM on Sat Oct 5 2013
@VctrBnsn - I agree with you, he's one of the better Reeds IMO

dee bradley baker has significantly more personality than hiro kanagawa. hiro seems virtually emotionless IMO.
said at 7:48 AM on Tue Jan 29 2013
I loved his calm voice. Perfect contrast to the hyperactive Johnny^^
And he wasn't emotionless. He had many humorous lines too. The sample just isn't the best one.
said at 7:58 AM on Fri Nov 23 2012
Hiro IS Reed.
said at 11:23 PM on Sat Nov 17 2012
Well they all sound good (the only one who sounds a little off is the normally reliable Cam Clarke, who may have been better suited to the Human Torch), but I think Beau Weaver will probably always be my default voice for Mr. Fantastic.

It's hard for me to pick, but my personal favorites are Robert Clotworthy, Hiro Kanagawa, and Dee Bradley Baker.

Probably gonna go with Clotworthy, since he captures the fact that sometimes Reed is just too logical and rational for his own good.
said at 10:20 AM on Thu Aug 16 2012
While I didn't really care for it at first, Dee Bradley Baker's (and the rest of the FF EMH voices, for that matter) has grown on me to where I'm voting for him.

Dee doesn't really change my opinion, in fact I'd put him pretty low on the list. He just doesnt sound right to me, it might be on how high it is.

Gonna hand this one to Dee Bradley Baker, though Hiro Kanagawa, Robert Clotworthy, James Marsters, and David Naughton are good as Reed, too.
said at 11:35 PM on Fri Jun 8 2012
No offense, but he was weak. Cam Clarke should've reprise his role in Avengers.
said at 12:18 AM on Sat Jun 9 2012
@Mr.Fennoy93 I disagree on both counts. Reed's supposed to be a smart guy. Dee Bradley Baker made him sound like that. Not to mention, I never liked Cam Clarke's Reed, Something felt off, plus quite a bit of the voice acting in the 90s Spider-Man show doesn't hlod up well today, anyway, Cam Clark'es Reed being one of them.
said at 7:33 PM on Fri Jul 6 2012
@Mr.Fennoy93 Also, it's just your opinion.
