Voice Compare » G.I. Joe » Zartan
Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Zartan with sound clips and images.
Zartan is the infamous mercenary from the G.I. Joe series that is usually hired by Cobra to carry out some type of hit. He is also the leader of a group of renegades called the Dreadnoks. Besides being a ruthless hitman Zartan is also a master of disguise. He could not only change his color to blend into his background but he had excellent vocal impersonation ability. He usually stayed in dark areas as the sun would weaken his power. He also had a long running rivalry with Destro.
EDITOR'S OPINIONThis is unusual for me to say since I usually like the Resolute voices and Steve Blum but for this one he is easily my least favorite of the voices. He just comes across like an every day hitman and loses the dark mysterious sounding part that makes the character so cool. Zartan is easily one of my all-time favorite Joe characters and I need my Zartan voice to capture that essence.
The original actor, Zack Hoffman has one of the best bad guy laughs of all-time in my opinion and that almost makes me go with him as my favorite.
However, even though I usually don't like the Sigma Six voices, in this compare I have to give my vote to Marc Thompson. I can't believe I am not going with the original here but I just love what Thompson did with the voice.
