Voice Compare » Fantastic Four » Terrax
Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Terrax with sound clips and images.
Terrax is an antagonist from the Fantastic Four franchsie whom made his Comic Book Debut in Fantastic Four #211 in October of 1979. Terrax was once Tyors the ruler of the city-state Landlak of the planetoid known as Birj until he became one of the heralds of the known planet eater Galactus. Alike certain other heralds such as the Silver Surfer he too uses the Power Cosmic (though if he is loyal to Galactus or not depends on the continuity and even if he is rebellious his motives are usually not as noble as the Silver Surfer's). He is normally known for taking on the Fantastic Four with his Cosmic Powers and his huge blade weapon and its often due to Galactus in some way or another.

EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on the Fantastic Four VC section we take a look at another one of Glactus' Heralds... TERRAX! Let us begin...
Tony Jay- While it is a little strange to hear the late great Tony Jay doing a somewhat higher pitched voice for the role but to be fair it is somewhat justified (so it would sound different to his work as Galactus) but still its only a decent example of his work.
Ron Feinberg- While I suppose Ron's voice is a little light for the role but I do feel that Ron's performance was pretty good as it does give off a rather eloquently evil feel which does work for the role pretty well. Though yes Ron does have one strong advantage on how so far he is the only one whom actually gets more than a few seconds worth of lines as his work on the role of Terrax was pretty good.
Ted Biaselli- I understand what Ted was trying to do for the role by giving him a deep and gruff voice and it would've worked too that if his voice for the role actually did sound deep which it did not and it sounds a bit awkward that way. So basically I would consider this to be a case of a well-intentioned miscast.
Kevin Grevioux- While the idea of Kevin voicing Terrax sounds great as he can do a suitably deep voice for the role well enough. However I do think that while his voice is good but his performance is not quite menacing enough but thats probably because Kevin didn;t have a lot of material here. But I do believe that Kevin has a lot of potential for the role here.
James C. Mathis III- James' voice is a bit lighter compared to Kevin's but it does work with the role pretty well nevertheless. Though I do notice on how James seems to be playing the role as more of a "Loyal Servant" rather than a "Evil Minion" and has a nice regal feeling to it. So in other words its a pretty good example of James' work and the voice work in the show.
Overall I am clearly going with Ron and James the most with Kevin at a very close second with Tony and Ted at third.
