"I love them so much. Always have...I just took it for granted...for so long. They gave me home and family and friendship. They made me want to be a better man. And now they've given me the greatest gift of all... No matter how impossible the odds, they'll face it like heroes. Like...Titans... "

I'm thankful that Roy Harper is being written well in The DC Rebirth Titans book (especially after his awful treatment in Both 'Rise of Arsenal' and 'Red Hood And The Outlaws')

Roy is a character that (when handled well) is a truly compelling character....

Here are my Top 5 Favourite Voices for Him:

5. Scott Menville
4. Pat Harrington Jr./Ryan Ochoa
3. Jason Marsden
2. Mike Erwin
1. Crispin Freeman

Future VA Suggestions:

For the Red Arrow Version, Reuben Langdon would be great in the role, using a lighter version of His Dante voice.

For a Teenage Version, David Gallagher would be a solid fit (plus that would go nicely with my suggestion of Haley Joel Osment as Beast Boy).

I also recommend Scott Roberts, James Van Der Beek, David Stanbra and Brett Dalton.

I'd like Scott better if it wasn't a rehash of his Robin voice.

The voice of Itachi as Red Arrow in Young Justice? I approve of Crispin Freeman for that role...

Scott's just using a different pitch of his Robin voice.

Scott probably could have been good if given better writing but Crispin and Mike ar still my favorites with Jason being my second. The rest I thought were just okay at best

Isn't the TTG version technically a parody?
NCZ (Admin)
said at 12:18 AM on Sun May 12 2013
@TheVengeanceKnight Not by the definition this site uses, because it's an official appearance of the character, merely placed in a comedic context. It's only considered a parody if it's unlicensed and/or not done by the original company/creators (e.g. Family Guy or Robot Chicken).
said at 12:51 PM on Sun May 12 2013
@TheVengeanceKnight By that Logic Super Hero Squad and Batman The Brave And The Bold are parodies that shouldn't be included in the compares.

@pete batman TBATB was made by DC and SHSS was made by Marvel

@partymonster411 The point is that like GO those are silly versions and still count.

@pete Now you're just not making any sense.
said at 1:14 PM on Mon Aug 26 2013
@OswaldFan825 I'm comparing the tone of GO to the one of the other two shows. Lighter versions don't make them parodies at least IMO.

I kinda wish they god Mike back for the series, but for the joke they were trying to convey, Scott works. BTW, is Mike even voice acting anymore?
said at 11:37 PM on Sat May 11 2013
@VctrBnsn If it was a joke of the week maybe Mike will voice him when the other Titans East appear. If not they either aren't bothering with him, he's not bothering, or he's retired. Haven't heard him after TT and JLU so I'll safely assume that's the case. Kinda wondered since I was half expecting him back myself.

Scott did decent for the material he had. He did a pretty good job of capturing how he and Robin are alike and did try to differ from his Robin voice a bit. If he had done him in a true continuation of the series he'd be a decent replacement for Mike Irwin. H
said at 11:24 PM on Sat May 11 2013
@pete I'm sorry but I would have to disagree... Robin and Speedy sounded so similar... granted, Scott did his best but... I could tell he did the voice. It just screams Robin for me. Hopefully, I'll see the full episode on Tuesday to get a good idea of how the performance really is. But as for right now, it's ehh for me. You're right, he did his best but... it just kinda detracts for me...
said at 11:39 PM on Sat May 11 2013
@Lurker By decent I mean not the worst casting choice nor is it the best and it would an alright decision with me if they had Scott fill in for Mike at the last minute in a true continuation.

@pete Could an admin or mod remove the misdirected comment, the one below it, and this one when they see it?
said at 11:34 PM on Sat May 11 2013
@pete I was simply poking fun at the fact that he believes everybody on the planet automatically shares or will share his feelings on the matter.

Besides, the clip lacks context, so of course the humor of the scenario would be diluted. Though having actually watched the episode, I personally found it somewhat amusing rather than "laugh-out-loud" funny. Then again, I don't laugh all that easily in general.

@CatsTuxedo I guess that you were posting while I was and I meant to say that to him. Could you do me a favor and clear up this comment mess.

Mike Erwin worked more for a Speedy that worked as a sidekick to Green Arrow while Crispin Freeman works more for the Red Arrow.

@coolgeek176 After thinking about it i'm changing my vote to Crispin.

@coolgeek176 I don't like Scott.

LOL, now that Crispin Freeman's actually gotten to voice Speedy, I'll be able to do this compare fairly. :-P

If this was a Red Arrow VC, Crispin would easily get my vote. But it isn't, and I thought Mike Erwin was better as Speedy, so I'm sticking with him.
said at 5:23 AM on Mon Jun 4 2012
With recent events, I find it hilarious that Crispin Freeman is leading even though he technically has never voiced Speedy (yet). =P
said at 3:52 PM on Thu Aug 23 2012
@TheVengeanceKnight Speedy and Red Arrow are technically the same character, YJ just didn't use the former superhero identity for very long (it was only for the very first couple of episodes, I believe).
said at 6:42 PM on Thu Aug 23 2012
@pokemastanumba1 Even then, he's technically not the real Speedy; he's a Cadmus grown clone. ;-P

@TheVengeanceKnight "Cadmus grown clone" ???

@TheVengeanceKnight LOL, don't worry about it, I'll finish watching at least the first season of YJ pretty soon. :P

I really liked Crispin Freeman as Speedy, though Jason Marsden and Mike Erwin are good, too.

I know TTG is more comedy-based and decided to push the similarities between Robin and Speedy further, but them literally having the same voice is just ridiculous.

Mike Erwin is the best as Speedy the sidekick, and Crispin Freeman is the best as Speedy the independent agent/Red Arrow.

yah, it was a cool little scene with him and Green Arrow. A little hero sidekick bantering. But same voice from Teen Titans, so I didn't add him.

Even though he sounds very similar to Richie from Static Shock I like Jason Marsden the most.

btw I found a guy on youtube with every single episode of the 60s Aquaman show. Still trying to find Speedy but once i find him I'll send the clip your way.
