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.

Even though he's using his Ant Man voice, I really like Wally's take.
said at 8:34 AM on Tue Sep 23 2014
Wally is pretty good. His voice is rather fitting I must admit. But I still don't think he's the best so my vote stays the same.
said at 4:47 PM on Sun Sep 21 2014
Wally's got my vote

Wally sounds good as Mr. Fantastic, yet he sounds just like his Hank Pym. He's a good choice for the character, yet reminds you of a different one. It's kinda weird.
said at 1:55 PM on Sun Sep 21 2014
@Polyester Funk He's better as Reed than Hank if you ask me IMO.

I have mix feelings about Gerald, Mike and Beau. On one hand, they sound smart and like a leader and make techno babel sound believable enough. However their voices are too "big chin hero" like, not too muh that I'm not talking Brian Bloom as Cap bad but they just don't do the nerdy side at all. Again not bad but a mix bag.

Cam, Ioan, David, Mathew, and Robert were also good but something in their performances just Not bad but I think their voices fit well enough but their acting sounds too stiff at times. I think each of them deserve a second chance a the role.

Hiro, James, and Robin are my favorites. I can understand why some might not like Hiro as he did have a line that could sound odd but he had more good than bad moments, he was nerdy and smart but sounded like he could lead without sounding too much like a typical hero plus he could be pretty funny when he needed to be. James was smart and I liked his optimistic version of Reed, he was also able to be funny and had a leader quality without losing the nerdy aspect though he didn't play the nerdy side as much as I would like. Robin had potential and I could see it turning out very well if he reprised.

I gotta say, I find Dee to be a complete miscast. His voice is too high and too recognizable which makes it more distracting. He plays Reed a bit TOO nerdy and likes any of the other qualities even sounding a bit stuff at times. Overall, just a miscast.

Wally is good, sometimes hard to not hear Ant man in his voice plus he didn't seem to be able to emote well.
I'd put him with Hiro, James and Robin but I think he could have been better.

Not a fan of Hiro's take, but I understand why he's in the lead. But man....I just don't like his Reed. At first, I thought it was the slight lisp, but no, it's actually his acting. It's awkward. I don't want to say stale, and I can't quite identify what it is, but its...awkward.

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.

@Ross123 And the rest?

@pete I stated that I liked every1 else's perfornances. No offence or anything but are you trying 2 tell me that that's not good enough?
said at 12:13 PM on Tue Jul 8 2014
@Ross123 Sorry didn't see that part. I was half asleep, was just curious.
said at 8:51 AM on Wed Jul 9 2014
@pete It's ok, sorry for being quite rude. At least I think what I said was rude.

Anyway, I think I was tired that day when I posted my thoughts on the voices. Cause sometimes mention all/most names but when I feel sleepy I'm simply not in the mood to comment on all of them. When I'm up for it, I might talk more on the VA's that I didn't mention.
said at 12:18 PM on Wed Jul 9 2014
@Ross123 I'm the same, some times I just post my favorites when I'm tired, and don't bother with the ones I don't care for and giving a full opinion. Didn't worry I've been bugging you about you opinions/posts a lot so lately so you got tired of it or something I don't mind.

@pete It's fine. I really don't mind people getting on to me about my opinions. As long as it's done in a reasonable manner, I'm down with it.

@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.

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

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.

@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 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.

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.

No offense, but he was weak. Cam Clarke should've reprise his role in Avengers.

@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.
