EDITOR'S OPINION

Ah 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.)

John Kassir and Nolan North are both so very equally perfect. They're two totally different voices, but suit all of the Merc with a Mouth's qualities to an absolute tee.

I could picture Tom Kenny doing an infinitely better job under different circumstances (a more unique voice, and different project involving Deadpool). Steve didn't really have much to go on, but works just fine for a meh portrayal, whereas Will Freidle's obnoxiously grating voice, while somewhat enjoyable and fitting, is my least favorite.

@The Doctor Seth has only written 3 episodes of family guy. Seth is given writing credit as "Developed and Created by." The only episodes Seth has written is the first episode, the segment "Super Griffins" in Viewer Mail #1 and North by North Quahog, which are considered some of the funniest episodes by fans of the earlier seasons, Seth barely has any involvement with these recent seasons. It's the same with American Dad as he only wrote two episodes, Seth is primarily a producer more than he is writer. Also keep in mind Seth has written over 26 episodes of the first series of Dexters Lab and 13 episodes of Johnny Bravo, so Seth definitely does know how to write a funny script.

Take a look at Ryan Reynolds in the Deadpool movie test footage that was officially released by Blur Studios and director Tim Miller today. Reynolds is awesome in that! He's definitely #2 on my list. It's just going to be incredibly hard to top Nolan here.

Kassir's voice is iconic and fits the bill. Deadpool is supposed to talk like he's been gargling gasoline. That's why his speech bubbles are yellow.

But Nolan North just has the energy and the better comedic timing. If he horsed up the voice he does for Deadpool just a bit more, It'd probably be spot on. In fact the one line he says "Still have that unbreakable skull" sounds exactly how he should talk all the time.

I didn't mind Will, In fact as much as I hate the show he was on..... the episode he played Deadpool in, was probably the most entertaining episode of that entire show. I also love how one minute he speaks in a funny voice but on a dime can switch to his evil voice. I strangely get a kick out of that.

So basically the best Deadpool voice for me would be Nolan North doing a more horse voice like John but also switching back and forth from menacing to funny chaotically like Will.

So I'm going to have to go with Nolan North on this one. He's the closest voice to Deadpool I have in my head.

Kassir has the voice for it, but North has the energy. Overall, though, I'm going with North.

Steve Blum and Tom Kenny seem half-assed, honestly. And I just found Will Friedle annoying, even though some of the jokes he made were fairly decent.

You know when I think of Deadpool with Will's voice I don't laugh, but if you replace the voice with Nolan North and watch Ultimate Deadpool again, it just sounds funny. It goes to show that not anyone can voice a character, you need the right voice to get the reaction you want.

While it isn't official, Orion Acaba voiced Deadpool in this one vs. match: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Avx0vlVP6Zk

Obviously he isn't going to top Nolan, but I thought he was AWESOME!!!!!

As for who I like(That's a little obvious though), I'll number them for now:

1. Nolan North
2.John Kassir
3.Will Friedle
4.Tom Kenny
5.Steve Blum

If Orion was official, he'd be 2nd or 3rd for me.

1. Nolan North: Nolan is to Deadpool as Steve Blum is to Logan or Fred is to Hulk, he just IS the character. While his portrayal in Hulk vs is hilarious, it is actually his weakest performance as Deadpool. Nolan truly BECOMES Deadpool in the Deadpool game, he's funny, chaotic, full of energy but can transition for those small moments where Deadpool needs to be a little sinister.

2. Will Friedle/John Kassir: I thought Will was a pretty good choice for Deadpool, he had the right energy and delivery and he did make me laugh a couple times. I do think his voice should be lower, he would briefly go into a lower voice at times and it fit rather well. John on the other hand had the opposite problems, I thought his gravely voice was pretty distinct and fitting for the role but while John had good delivery on several lines (his special dialog with poeple are the best example) he didn't have the same energy that was needed for the role. Overall, I think both actors deserve more chances at Deadpool.

3. Tom Kenny: I'm really sorry to say this but Tom sounds phoned in. He's energetic when NOT in a role, how does he sound so bored? That said Tom's voice did feel right for Deadpool so he does have the potential.

4. Steve Blum: I have to call miscast here. Yeah he didn't get a lot of lines but I cannot picture that voice for a long period of time for Wade Wilson. I don't even understand, he doesn't even sound like Ryan Renolds why Blum of all choices?

Nolan North: In everything he's done as the character, he's shown us that he IS Deadpool! He's insane, funny, and is always entertaining whenever he plays the role!

John Kassir: While it is sort of odd hearing that kind of gravelly voice coming out of Deadpool, it oddly enough works! His timing is also very well done!

Steve Blum: He sadly got a bit part where Deadpool was just... a guy and had not that much to work with.

Tom Kenny: Sadly bland and forgettable, it's weird since Tom can do hyperactive characters so I wonder why he didn't go that route with Deadpool.

Will Friedle: While actually having good acting for the role, Will's take unfortunately had SUCH AN ANNOYING VOICE!

@The Doctor I know that they were different in terms of acting, I was just talking about the voice itself. The voice is the same as Ron's, he's just using it differently. I guess I'm getting at the voice itself isn't inherently annoying, how he acted was.

1. Nolan North: He's spectacularly hilarious as Deadpool. He nails the role so perfectly and it's no wonder he's so good at it.
2. Will Friedle: It's an Underrated take on the character. Will was given this role because Deadpool had to be written to be appropriate. And he did nail the role well
3. Steve Blum: He needed more to work with, but It was good.
4. John Kassir: He sounded rather slow and sluggish, but the pitch and tone was perfect :)
5. Tom Kenny: Hate to say, but this was one of Kenny's worst. He sounded way to deep and boring to be deadpool.

Maybe it's just me but after watching some of his video game reviews I think Jon "Jontron" Jafari should take a shot at voicing Deadpool. Granted he probably wouldn't be on the same level as Nolan North, but he has the right amount of insanity, randomness, and humor to pass as Deadpool.
MilanTheVillain01

Nolan is the best as he is funny & sounds serious at the same time.

John is another good Deadpool actor.

Steven makes a good Deadpool but didn't have the jokey 2 him. I think he should get another chance 2 voice him again if Marvel lets him.

Saw that episode of Ultimate Spiderman & I thought Willie's voice was a pain in the ass. He was sooooooo annoying & it made me want 2 get a gun so I could shoot the tv but I sat through the whole thing anyway + where I come from, very very few people have guns so 4 weapons people carry knives (just like Deadpool, sort of as he has swords).

Tom was ok though not the best.

Both Nolan North and John Kassir do VERY well as this character, but Nolan edges out a little more. Steve Blum had potential but he didn't get enough of a role to work with. Tom Kenny's alright for the Deadpool he's playing, and Will Friedle is my least favorite here. He's not very funny, just annoying, and the voice is too young and high pitched.

To elaborate on my opinion, I've always loved Nolan, he has a lot of personality, and really knows how to entertain a crowd (myself included). His breaking of the fourth wall is always good for a laugh, and his jokes never get old. His performance alone is what (almost) redeemed U/MvC3 as an enjoyable fighter for me, and he really seems to have fun with the role too. In short, Nolan was very much a perfect casting choice for the role all around.

Will Friedle is...okay. He comes off as more obnoxious than funny, though considering the show he's in, I suppose it's appropriate at the very least. The same can be said for Tom Kenny more or less, but again, the material he had to work with didn't do Deadpool any justice. Maybe they could've done better, but I digress.

John is rather meh; his voice is too gravelly, and doesn't have the same amount of energy as the others. His was a rather forgettable performance overall.

Steve Blum was absolutely horrendous as this character. He's just using his normal voice, like he does with 99% of his characters (come on, whatever happened to originality). He doesn't even TRY to sound funny! Maybe his wasn't a bad voice, but it's a terrible Deadpool (if that's even Deadpool in the first place).

At this point this Steve Blum bashing has become really transparent, not to mention old and tiresome. Besides, he only has one vote and has only voiced Deadpool once, there's especially no reason to get all up-in-arms over Steve Blum on this comparison of all things.

I'm not at all personally angry with him, and I do have to admit, my criticisms do seem petty at times, but...a lot of VCs show how biased several fanbases are, and too many worship Steve Blum as some sort of VA god. Even if he's not in a VC, there's almost always going to be someone who randomly "dream casts" him in that role. Yes, I know that his voice is everywhere and that he broke the "record" of most voice-over roles in video games. That's great and all, but...can everyone else please just forget about it and move on? It's really old news, we don't need to give him any more compliments than we do to our significant others.

This all could have had a reasonable end until you made this statement. Why is it only annoying for this one actor? Is it because of the record? The only person I have seen bringing it up is, funnily enough, you. And can you back up the ludicrous exaggeration that, "Even if he's not in a VC, there's almost always going to be someone who randomly "dream casts" him in that role"? I know there's a place for hyperbole, but this is ridiculous. It's only bothering you because you let it bother you.

What really bothers me is biased voting/statements in favor of a certain VA/show, rather than the performance. Voice compares aren't about winning or losing, but simply representing common opinion. It's bias that sways the results of some polls, which isn't fair to the other VAs.

Steve Blum may not be the only VA who people are biased in favor of, but it's obvious that it's a much worse case with him compared to other VAs.

@pokemastanumba1 Hey guys, what's been going on--oh sweet merciful Lord.

Your reasons for disliking Steve Blum basically boil down to the fact that he's an accomplished voice actor and has fans. That is not rational and actually rather worrying. And all this basically stems from the fact that he got a record for most game voices. How is that deserving of your hate!? It's just quantitative fact! That'd be like if I hated The Beatles because they had more record sales than The Rolling Stones and lots of people think they're the best band ever. It's just... you can't hate something, or worse yet, someONE, just because they're popular!

Also, you're an admitted Nolan North fanboy, so the fact that you hate Blum for being popular and using the same voice over and over again is nothing short of hypocritical considering that Nolan North also has lots of fans and is equally infamous for being recognizable and using the Nathan Drake voice for multiple characters. And I can reasonably infer that all this stems from the fact that Blum got the record before Nolan North did. Well OBVIOUSLY that's going to happen. Blum got a head-start, he's been voicing in games before Nolan North has. Of course he would make the record. There is absolutely no reason to be so upset about the fact that Steve Blum got a world record and is a popular voice actor and to imply otherwise is nothing short of ridiculous.

And nice job thanking PVS for calling you cool and smart while ignoring the rest of his constructive feedback.

@pokemastanumba1 "Steve Blum may not be the only VA who people are biased in favor of, but it's obvious that it's a much worse case with him compared to other VAs." you say in a comparison where he's clearly losing.

On the other hand I do understand being irritated by biased votes towards certain shows or games, but here if anything people are more biased towards Nolan North's Deadpool. Not that I blame them at all, he did an awesome job as the character. But your arguments against Steve Blum don't hold much water, especially here of all places.

I've been trying to ignore such votes lately, I suggest you do the same with Steve Blum. Especially in comparisons where he's hardly relevant. Besides, NCZ had a point about you being an admitted Nolan North fanboy. Which I don't blame you at all for but I mean come on, nothing against you personally but this constant hypocritical Steve Blum bashing across all these different voice comparisons is getting incredibly ridiculous and frustrating.

Anyways I'm done, I just felt like I had to post my final thoughts here. Not continuing this anymore.

1. Nolan North - He cracks me up in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3
2. Steve Blum - I hear TOM from Toonami
3. Will Friedle - He has a bit too much energy, but he does a good job
4. John Kassir - It's hard to judge the voice because of the quality of the clip
5. Tom Kenny - What is this? I hear Yancy Fry Jr. not Deadpool

1. Nolan North- This is one of the most well cast choices for a comic book character I've ever seen. Nolan was introduced very well in Hulk Vs. Wolverine, but where Nolan really shines is the Deadpool game, where they use him perfectly, he's funny, breaks the 4th wall and makes it believable, and the banter he has with cable and all the other characters is just hilarious. 10/10

2. John Kassir- John was the first voice and he does do a pretty good job. He still has that sense of humor, but not on the same level of North, and his voice sounds really bizarre since I'm so used to Nolan in the games. But it is still a great performance, and one of Kassirs best. 8.5/10

3. Will Friedle- Yes it is basically his Ron Stoppable just a little more energetic, but he does a pretty good job, and he was pretty well written in his first appearance in USM especially considering they make fun of him or show a deadpool poster in the background in the show. 7.5/10

4. Tom Kenny- Tom is a very good fit, which makes me sad that he didn't appear in the TV show, but they utilize him well here. Tom has that wise guy kind of voice which works well for DP and he does get a few good lines every so often, and I wouldn't mind seeing him do it again in the future. 7.5

5. Steve Blum- Steve does a decent job here, but he is given NOTHING to work with so I can't fully judge the performance, but it sounds decent but it isn't the same Deadpool, its the crappy Reynolds Deadpool so it hardly is in the same vein as the other Deadpools. ?/10

@skeletonking1234 now that I rewatched the episode with Deadpool, I think friedle is tied with Nolan now. Frieldie has an amazing amount of energy in the role and I can definitely tell Frielde was having the time of his life when he was recording this character. This sound clip isn't even in the episode of the show and doesn't even come close to showing frielde justice. If you want the full extent of Friedles performance watch the episode.

John Kassir: Kassir is great as Deadool, as he sounds very crazy, comical and homicidal. The only problem is that he sounds like there's something wrong with his throat. Still a great performance. 9.5/10

Nolan North: North is the perfect Deadpool. He gets the cocky and smart-a** tone in Hulk Vs. and gets the insanity down very well in the Deadpool video game, Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 and Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions. 10/10

Steve Blum: Blum is my favorite voice actor, but his performance as Deadpool wasn't one of his best. He just uses his normal voice, which I don't think works for Deadpool. Granted, he doesn't have much to work with, but is the weakest out of these VA's. 5.5/10

Tom Kenny: Kenny works for the light-hearted tone of Super Hero Squad, but I could see him doing a more comic accurate Deadpool. Not bad. 7/10

Will Freidle: Freidle just sounds plain annoying, and is way too high pitched. I guess the annoying part makes sense for Deadpool, but it's supposed to be funny, like the way Nolan North or John Kassir. I blame the bad voice direction, and Ultimate Spider-Man is a terrible show, so Freidle doesn't have much to work with. 5.5/10

Nolan North is clearly my favorite Deadpool, with John Kassir as a close second, and Tom Kenny at a decent third.

I like Nolan North the best. A very funny and psychotic performance. When I heard that Will Friedle was going to play Deadpool I was a little excited, but it's a little high-pitched and obnoxious.

Wellllll.... Will didn't do a BAD job xD I just suppose the only issue I had with it (other than his voice being... higher pitched than I'm used to. Hey, I'm a Nolan Deadpool elitist, what can I say) is that 1) I can't listen to him without automatically hearing Ron Stoppable and 2) Doesn't Spidey already sort of... break the fourth wall about his own show? I mean, I know that's the point, but why bring fourth-wall-aware Deadpool into the mix if Spider-Man already breaks the fourth wall?

Maybe I'm missing something. Bottom line, still going for Nolan here.

My overall opinion of Will. Love how Deadpool interrupts Spidey's opening monologue and steals the show. Also like that will got to show off his range and love when he does characters like this. It was like Eric Matthews was completely off his rocker. All we needed was the Fury call(parody of the Feeny call). I hope we more of him in the show and in the Loebiverse. It's what USM needs.

Drake's acting was great as well especially when he disapproves of Deadpool's methods. If anyone comes here to hate on the episode I'm gonna unalive you.

It's happened folks we have a TIE between Nolan North and John Kassir. Nolan captures the insanity abnd craziness of Deadpool, but in the comics Deadpool's voice is described with a gravelly voice, but if I had to choose it would be Kassir. Nolan North though in the new Deadpool game could change me around though... (By the way Tom Kenny seems like another amazing choice, but it the SHS game so it didn't have a great delivery sadly.)

Fun fact: Deadpool was originally voiced by one of the Ocean Group guys for Hulk vs. Wolverine, but the guys at Marvel decided to replace him since they didn't feel he was right. They went to Nolan North (who was already recording for WatXM) and asked him to improvise stuff for Deadpool.

@TheVengeanceKnight Don't get me wrong, Baker's great. But here's the thing: he's more of a niche case. I mean, when it comes with comedic roles or animal noises, he does great. But when he gets serious roles (which happens more often than you'd think), he seems out of place. When I hear him as Ra's al Ghul or Desaad or even Tarrlok, I'm like, "Why is Dee Bradley Baker in this role?" Blum, however, is surprisingly versatile. We all know him as the badass voice guy, but he has been able to do comedic roles very well, like Jamie in Megas XLR, Leeron from Gurren Lagann, and his roles on Harvey Birdman.

Deadpool's speech and thought balloons and captions are usually colored yellow, to represent his distinctive voice. Cable of Earth-5701 has described his voice as having a "gravelly, Demi Moore" quality before "killing" him. Blind Al has also stated that Deadpool's voice sounds like a distinct mixture of "gasoline and gravel."

With this in mind, John Kassir performed the role perfectly, and Nolan missed the mark by quite a bit.

I'm giving this one to Nolan North as I thought he really suited the character. I'm sorry, but I agree with one comment I once read about John Kassir's Deadpool: that he sounds like an evil Daffy Duck. Granted, Deadpool is wacky and out of his mind, but I don't picture him sounding like Daffy Duck.

Tom Kenny was okay, but Nolan North is much better, so I'm gonna stick with him.

I love Nolan North and he gives Deady an energy not easily mimiced, but Kassir just sounds like he has little yellow boxes. I prefer Kassir to Nolan only by a fraction of a hair.

Though my personal Deadpool VA is Scott McNeil.

Kassir rocks! I LOVED his Deadpool in the Marvel Ultimate Alliance games.

Now don't get me wrong, I'm a huge Nolan North fan as well, but this is the one role where I just don't think he fit the character very well. I've seen Hulk Vs. and played through all the games in which his voice is featured and he just doesn't sound right to me. He kinda' captured the insanity of Deadpool, but IMHO it wasn't enough.

@SparklyShake12

Addendum: After going back and listening to Nolan's work, it's actually really good, I like it a lot however, I still say Kassir because he nailed the insanity aspect of Deadpool's personality perfectly. I will however give the upper hand to North in the humor deparment. Some of those lines in MvC3/UMvC3 and Shattered Dimensions are classic.

All right, I did it, I finally changed my vote to Nolan. He really does nail all aspects of Deadpool and after replaying MUA 2 a few weeks ago, it'd be a crime not to give my vote to North.

#1 Nolan North
If there's one role besides Nathan Drake (obviously) that he's widely recognized for, it's Deadpool. Having a great sense of humor and being a major stretch of his talents, Deadpool is certainly one of the major highlights of North's career. Despite the movie being named after two more popular Marvel characters, I daresay that North as Deadpool was definitely the star performance of Hulk Vs. Of course, there's also the well-received MvC3 in which he really cemented his place in the Marvel Universe. Great stuff! XD

#2 John Kassir
He's the most fitting voice-wise, being as comedic as North but not quite as light-sounding. Unfortunately, the sloppy acting, poorly-written script, and bland lines of dialogue really hurt his overall performance. While he's still very competent at "hamming it up" like his other roles, the way he stumbled over some of his lines felt really awkward at some points. More importantly, he just didn't get the proper material to work with in MUA. I really would like to hear him reciting some of Deadpool's lines in Hulk Vs or MvC3, as the more well-developed dialogue could have really worked for him. Of course, none of that was his fault, and he's actually almost tied with North, but there's just so much improvement MUA could have made.

#3 Steve Blum
Haven't heard enough to comment or make a fair judgement, but he seemed to have at least a bit of potential. Still, he's one of the greatest American voice-over actors, and I do wonder how he would have handled a larger role as Deadpool. I'm sure that he could also do pretty well at least.

Tom Kenny is okay; he nails Deadpool's fish-out-of-the-water personality, captures his sense of humor (which obviously isn't stretching Tom Kenny's talents much, but whatever), and is just entertaining to listen to. On the other hand, I can't help but picture his Deadpool being SpongeBob with a multiple-personality disorder. :-/

Nolan still blows everyone else outta the water, but Tom Kenny knocks off John and Steve for second place.

Will Friedle is a lot better than I thought he'd be, though he's still not quite an ideal replacement; he does come off as a bit more obnoxious than funny, his voice was a bit grating to listen to. And for some reason, I can't seem to get Ron Stoppable out of my head when I play his clip. XD

Overall, they all did pretty well with what they had to work with, but my picks would have to be:

#1 Nolan North
#2 Will Friedle
#3 Tom Kenny
#4 John Kassir
#5 Steve Blum

Deadpool goes to Nolan North. I say that because although the dialogue in MUA/MUA2 was funny, John's voice acting is way too slow for Deadpool. Not his fault, it's the writing, but his voice contributes to that. Nolan North sounds like the really quick-witted man Deadpool is. And Steve Blum was fine, but he wasn't voicing Deadpool, he was voicing poser-Wade from the X-Men Origins movie.

I think John Kassir is more comedic than the other ones, though Nolan North was very good at breaking the fourth wall in Marvel vs. Capcom. Steve Blum is...well, I can't really judge it since he says so little but it seems...bland, which is a shame since Steve Blum is such a good VA. Though I'll chalk it up as being bland scriptwriting rather than bland acting.

Hate to burst a few bubbles, but I have to put it on Kassir. He has this kind of zaniness that Nolan North just didn't capture. That and he breaks the fourth wall in the second Ultimate Alliance games.

SJB's my favorite voice actor, but he isn't what I look for in Deadpool. It was so hard to choose between North and Kassir - both are just so hilarious and have excellent delivery. North barely edged out for my vote, though.

Might I recommend the SM:SD & MvC3 variations of North's take? There was a difference in his voice among the 3 times he voiced Deadpool.

No, lets get this over with, North's Deadpool was impressive in Hulk vs. for the first time, just like Eric Loomis for Iron Man 2 video game, but afterwards in Sp:Shattered Dimensions he doesnt sound that impressive any more.

why North isn't bad, John Kassir is deadpool, not only because he was the first voice, but because he shows the insane, fun, and badass spirit that deadpool encompasses.

Nolan North is the best Deadpool by far imo. He makes it sound like everything Deadpool does and says he's having fun. John is also very good, but Nolan takes the cake. Steve Blum should have used his crazier voice (although I know he's wade wilson but the movie screwed it up anyways) Whenever Steve Blum plays a role that someone else that was good has played, he should stay out of it (although his wolverine is probably the best besides Cal Dodd), he's great for a role like Spike Spiegel or Mugen, but not someone like Deadpool.
