Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Terrax with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Fantastic Four

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.

Today 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.

Considering playing big guys is his big forte, Fred works very well as Terrax.

Kevin Grevioux has a very epic deep voice and I like how powerful he sounds in the role. It really fits Terrax perfectly.

James C. Mathis III also works really well. He has a very good amount of power and menace in the role.

Ron Feinberg does sound pretty threatening and foreboding. However, I was expecting a deeper voice from him. Still, he delivers the goods nicely.

Tony Jay sounds quite different here. It's a nice change of pace, but the lack of material kinda hurts him.

Fred Tatasciore is fitting, but his laugh sounds kinda odd.

Ted Biaselli sounds like an awkward version of Frank Welker's Darkseid. He just sounds kinda forced.

Kevin Grevioux is definitely my favourite voice here as he gives the most power and sound to the role of Terrax. I do agree he does sound a bit stilted but he fits the design best IMO.

James C. Mathis III has a fantastic regal sounding voice but I feel he sounds maybe a bit too light.

Ron Feinberg is surprisingly a good fit, lighter than I would prefer but he has an excellent performance.

Tony Jay I'll give him credit for using a different kind of voice he never used before however it's far too light for the character and besides he worked so much better as Galactus than as one of his heralds.

Ted Biaselli is basically a Dr. Claw kind of voice....it really sounds generic especially for this kind of character.

My vote goes to Kevin Grevioux.

BONUS: Even though he was miscast as Thanos, Issac C. Singleton Jr. would be so much more fitting as Terrax. I could also see Noah Nelson, Paul St. Peter, Dave Pettitt and Jim Cummings could also work really well as Terrax too.

Going with James. She sounds appropriately evil and comes off as more natural.

Kevin has a great voice, but it sounds kind of stilted IMO.

The other three don't really make the mark either.

Embarrassing typo to make.

Putting my vote on James. He's the only one that sounds like an actual person rather than a scarecrow.

Kevin sounds the most intimidating so I'm going with him. Ron is pretty good. The voice is not that deep, but the performance is good.

I think James sounded too elegant for Terrax. I know he was a king, but he was a tyrant/warlord so I think he should sound more brutish. I'd like to hear James voice Martian Manhunter at some point.

Kevin has such an awesome voice! James doesn't quite have to power the voice should have, but then again, it's not like he's voicing Darkseid or something.

Yeah I'm going with Kevin. He bought something to the character that I felt was missing. The rest of these guys leave something to be desired.

I like Kevin the most here cause he has the deepest and the best performance.

Nnoe of them are how I imagine Terrax sounding, which is pretty deep, but I'm gonna give it to Ron Feinberg as he came the closest.

@Anicomicgeek Upon listening to Kevin Grevioux'd version of Terrax, I've only got this to this: That's more like it!=D Changing my vote to him.
