Hulk Hulk


Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Miek with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Hulk

Miek is a secondary protagonist in the Hulk franchise (to be more precise the "Planet Hulk" stories) whom made his Comic Book debut in Incredible Hulk Vol. 3 #92 in April of 2006. Miek is a insectoid that is native to planet of Sakaar but during his youth his father and most of his hive were slaughtered by Local Imperials so he had to go underground. Fortunately Miek was rescued by Hulk when they were outcast slaves to the Red King but was freed when Hulk defeated Red King. Miek was originally depicted as a rather meek insectoid creature whom befriended Hulk when Hulk was willing to protect but he does get considerably braver over the course of his story.

Today on the Hulk VC section we take a look at this insectoid from Sakaar... MIEK! Lets begin...

Sam Vincent- A natural choice for the role as his rather high-pitched voice would suit an insectoid creature such as Miek rather well as his performance was also very suiting for Miek's persona as well. So in another words Sam was very well cast for the role and its a fine example of his voice work.

Dave Wittenburg- An interesting change of pace for Dave here (and mind you I am aware that he can do higher voices) but still Dave's voice for the role was very good. Dave's performance was good as well as he did give it a good effort to play Miek as a lovable coward as much as possible (especially considering on how unlike other stories Miek's was always a coward in this show). But still Dave's work on the role is a good example of his work and one of the better performances of a "One-Shot" character in the show.

Benjamin Diskin- Ben's voice for the role is rather good (and he seems to be trying to channel Andy Serkis' work as Gollum/Smeagol even more so than Dave). While Ben seems to be playing Miek a bit calmer than his predeccesors his performance does still fit Miek's "Lovable Coward" persona rather well. 

Overall all of these guys are good but I will go with Sam Vincent just a bit more here.

Daves raspy Stitch like voice is a good fit for the character. I like how he plays him more over confident and goofy which is moderately entertaining. It's nothing amazing but he's good for what he had.

Sam portrays the cowardly side of the character really well, yet was able to balance a little bit of comedy in there at the same time. This is a much more serious take on the character compared to the SHSS portrayal and Sam does a great job.

Ben is kind of in between playing goofy and serious, and sound somewhat similar to Dave though plays it much smoother in comparison. Ben is also pretty good, he sounds like he's having a lot of fun with this.

I'd say for a future VA, Richard Horvitz or Steve Blum could work pretty well

I prefer Ben of the three.
I can't help but hear Sam's voice (and sometimes his Edd voice) come out when he speaks and that could get distraction and while Dave was good his voice his a bit played up too much.
Ben is a good balance between the two

My personal castings would be Tom Kenny or Yuri Lowenthal (grant it his voice would be a bit more normal compared to the others)

They are all quite good and they all sound pretty similar, which is how I image an insectoid guy would sound. I'm going with Sam Vincent, though. His voice is a little different from the other two and he got the best personality.

They're all pretty similar, and all work for the character.

Samuel is the best man here as he captures Miek's so perfectly that my vote goes to him.

Benjamin & Dave are on par with each other. Both of them do pretty much the same voice as the other and it works well.

Samuel Vincent.

Dave just sounds like Gollum.

I maya be quite alone, but I like Dave better.
I'd love to hear him voice a more serious version of Miek.

Ben Diskin was good, though I'm sticking with Sam Vincent.

To be honest, I like both. Sam's was good for the original and I do like Dave's, since it sounds quite similar to Waspinator from Beast Wars.
