EDITOR'S OPINIONAh the wonderfully infamous Deadpool, he may have started his comic book life as a horribly blatant rip-off of Deathstroke/Slade from Teen Titans. But over the years he has developed a comically insane persona that has made him one of the most renowned fan favorite recent comic book characters. (In which his alignment is pretty much always Chaotic, its just that it varies between Good, Neutral and Evil.)
In X Men Legends 2 and the Marvel Ultimate Alliance series he is voiced by John "Crypt Keeper" Kassir. The good folks at Activision and Raven Software did certainly have their fun with Deadpool here and John Kassir's performance definitely shows that. Some have wondered if John's voice is a bit too high for Deadpool but personally I had no problem with it to be honest. In fact I would say that John's voice for Deadpool certainly did fit as his infamously chaotic persona.
In "Hulk Vs." he was voiced by VA Nolan North and I must say its quite an interesting change of pace in his handiwork lately. (I never deemed him a bad VA but the characterization in his roles can be a bit too brooding for my tastes.) Anyways Nolan's handiwork as Deadpool is alike John's (except that Nolan's voice is lower) but still it definitely works just as well.
And last but sadly kind of the least is Steve Blum as Deadpool (or shall I say Wade Wilson) in the X Men Origins Wolverine game. Now Blum is by all means a great VA but sadly he didn't get anywhere near as much material to work with as the other two. Seriously Wade didn't really have all that much to say in the game. But to be fair Activision was just going with a half-way decent stand-in for Ryan Reynolds, and Steve Blum did get the job done. (Though I do feel pretty confident that Blum would do well if he got to voice Deadpool with a bigger role.)
Overall none of them are bad but I am going with John Kassir and Nolan North the most.
(Update: Tom Kenny and Will Friedle voiced him in SHS Online and Ultimate Spiderman both did a fine job delivering amusing performances that do suit their respective more light-hearted productions rather well. I think they do the role just fine as well along with John and Nolan so in other words I still think that most of them did just fine with this role.)
