Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Blackheart with sound clips and images.

Today on the Marvel Universe VC section we have Mephisto's son... BLACKHEART! Blackheart's VA debut was in the Capcom Arcade 2-D fighter Marvel Super Heroes (along with Marvel Super Heroes Vs. Street Fighter and Marvel Vs. Capcom 2) in which he was voiced by Jaimz Woolvett. While its quite obvious that Capcom did some heavy vocal effects on his Blackheart voice but I am not complaining as it certainly does fit. While Jaimz's Blackheart is not one of the best demonic voices I have heard but it is a pretty good example of this nevertheless, while Jaimz's performance here is above average at best it is kind of a shame that this is so far his only VA performance.

In Marvel Ultimate Alliance Blackheart was voiced by David Sobolov in which the guy is known for doing deep voices he would be a fairly natural choice for this role and he was. (Granted for some reason the BGM seems to be a bit louder than the recording for his voice but I would fault the game a bit more for that.) But still David has a suitably low demonic voice for the role of Blackheart and it worked well, granted David played the role a bit more somber than his Capcom counterpart but in this case it still genuinely works. While David's performance as Blackheart is not his best work but it is a good example of his work anyways and a nice example of the voice work in that game. Overall both did very well with this role but I suppose I will go with David Sobolov a bit more.)

it's hard to pick since both are kind of hard to understand, but from what I can make out, I'll vote for Sobolov.

Does anyone else think someone like Keith David or Steve Blum could do this?

Is just me or does Woolvetz's performance with all the effects make you think of Venom?

Jaimz Woolvetz has such a cool effect in his voice. Too bad I can't hear the VOICE and PERFORMANCE over it! Yeah, David Sobolov is better here.

David Sobolov's clip sucks, but I already pretty much know what his voice sounds like. Jaimz Woolvetz is generic and buried under way too many effects, IMO.

The clip used needs some work, but based on playing the game personally, I'm going to go with David Sobolov for Blackheart.

I can barely hear David Sobolov over the music, Jaimz Woolvett gets my vote until that gets fixed. Then I'll check back and see if I like it.

@Bombermanp He was, but had no spoken dialogue.

@NCZ Actually , Robin Atkin Downes did give him one line of dialogue in the final cutscene right before Blackheart assumed his gigantic demon form in a fairly spot-on Wes Bentley impression , might I add :
" Long time no see , Rider . Let`s take this outside " .

@Azrael99 Didn't know that; I've never played the game. I was just basing what I said off the description. We'll have to look into this. Thanks!

I gotta agree with everything that's been said. Sobolov takes this one hands down. (Though the sound clip needs a bit of work...)
