Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Captain Boomerang with sound clips and images.
Captain Boomerang is one of the members of The Flash's Rogues Gallery whom made his Comic Book Debut in Flash #117 back in December of 1960. Captain Boomerang is one of the various foes of the Flash whom doesn't have any super-powers but uses a lot of different Boomerangs to commit crimes. Captain Boomerang's real name is George "Digger" Harkness whom is the son of an American Soldier and an Australian Woman whom lived a life of poverty making Boomerangs in which he used as weapons, he was originally going to be the Mascot for a Toy Company but was ridiculed by his audience which is why he went into a life of crime. Captain Boomerang has worked with other villainous groups but he is primarily known as a member of "The Rogues" in The Flash's Central City and in some more recent comic stories has a son by the name of Owen Mercer whom has also taken up the mantle of Captain Boomerang.

EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on The Flash's VC section we take another look at his Rogues Gallery and this time we have a little something for this Boomerang-slinging Wonder from Down Under... CAPTAIN BOOMERANG! Now lets begin shall we mate?
Donal Gibson- Donal's voice for the role felt very smooth and natural and while Captain Boomerang was given a bit more of a comical depiction (like the other villains in the episode "Flash and Substance") I did like on how Donal's performance did have a good sense of smoothness for the role here.
John DiMaggio- John's attempt at the accent for the role is decent and his performance is not bad even if it does come off as kind of generic. So its not one of John's better performances in that show but its not one of his worst either.
J Shannon Weaver- I was pleasantly surprised here as Shannon's voice and attempt at the accent for the role is actually not too bad. Granted Captain Boomerang barely says anything in the game but still J Shannon's work as Captain Boomerang is probably one of his better performances in that game.
James Patrick Stuart- While James' voice is alright as his attempt at the accent is decent. But his performance is kind of generic and bland but then again the Ol' Cap was just a minor role in this movie. But still James' work on the role is decent enough nevertheless.
Greg Ellis- Greg's voice for the role was very good as the accent feels spot on and his fairly gruff voice suits the role pretty well. Greg's performance was also rather solid as it was rather entertaining as it does feel comedic but doesn't make him seem pathetic eitherso in other words its another fine example of Greg's work.
Overall I liked all 5 of them but I am going with Donal Gibson & Greg Ellis the most here.
