Captain Cold

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Captain Cold with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Flash

(Note: We at BTVA are uncertain if the info of Michael Bell ever voicing Captain Cold in Superfriends was actually true or not.)

Captain Cold is one of the various foes of the Flash whom made his comic book debut in Showcase #8 in June of 1957. Captain Cold's real name is Leonard Snart who grew up with family issues and a strong knowledge of cryonics in which Captain Cold went into a life of crime with the ice gun he uses. While Captain Cold has worked with other Supervillain groups before he is most primarily known as a member of the Rogues (though whether if he is actually their leader or not does depend on the storyline).

EDITOR'S OPINION

Today on the Flash VC section we take a look at this rather icy foe of the Flash... CAPTAIN COLD! Since this is a fairly big VC I shall simply state that I liked Lex Lang and Steve Blum the most here for this role but the others were pretty good too.

I can't decide who's my number one, since both Steve Blum and Lex Lang are pretty solid in their own merits, with Lex being more practical and civil, while Steve of course of more suave and slick.

Corey Burton is decent as a Silver/Bronze age Captain Cold, more mad scientist-like and all.

Both Michael J. Gough and James Arnold Taylor are somewhere between the aforementioned lot.

Is it just me, or does Danny Jacob sound like Tom Kenny here.

Alan Tudyk has potential, but such is the lot with her performance being minor.

BONUS: If I were going for a Wentworth Miller sound-alike, I'd cast either Troy Baker or Matthew Mercer. Crispen Freeman and even Eric Bauza would also sophist.

Or as left to interpretation, I'd cast Robin Atkin Downes, Dwight Schultz or even Liam O'Brien. Especially RAD with his voice as Deathstroke from Beware the Batman, definitely a better fit for Captain Cold.

Gideon Emery sounds like a more, classic bronze age Captain Cold, sort'a like how Corey Burton would voice him.

Funny that Gideon mentions Bane because something in his voice reminds me of Dark Knight Rises Bane.
He's pretty good.

Dick Ryal - Strange. Almost sounds like a hero. A bit too generic.
Lex Lang - Really good, he was threatening and entertaining as well.
JAT - Alright with what they were going for.
Michael Gough - Good for that one line.
Steven Blum - I made a little fanboy squeal when I first heard him in an Andrea Romano production. He was good, like to see him in a more serious version.
Ryan Wickerham - Ok, nothing special.
Alan Tudyk - The accent was a nice touch, but in the end, forgettable.
KMR - Not bad, actually.

The more I think about it, the more I think Steve Blum was miscast as Captain Cold. Cold's a two-bit punk with an ice gun; Blum should stick with more bad@$$ characters.

I like James Arnold Taylor the most, he made CC seem very cool (shut up) and calculating. Seriously I thought that scene was most rememberable in the whole movie, I really didn't know if FLash was going to save those people.

Lang's pretty good, it did have a intelligent feel and I liked how the character was portrayed.

I like Steven Blum but his voice seems too gruff and deep for what I imagine for Captain Cold. His Heat Wave was much better.

Ryal was pretty good, I normally don't like golden edge voices but he did have a calm yet intelligent feel.

Wickerham isn't bad just generic.

I might like Grough if given more lines, sounds like it had potential.

There some stuff I forgot about about Taylor's performance, during the whole scene he had a very calm and collected feel and tone that really left a impression.

I do find it amusing that Lex Lang and Steven Blum did the voice of both Captain Cold and Heat Wave.XD

Anyway, yeah, gonna give this one to Steven Blum, though there was definitely more to compare Lang to him than the Heat Wave one. Micghael Gough and James Arnold Taylor were also good as Cold.
