Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Grim Reaper with sound clips and images.
Grim Reaper is a Marvel Comics supervillain who first appeared in The Avengers #52 May (1968). Eric Williams was considered the black sheep of the Williams family and grew up to be a gambler and professional criminal, eventually becoming a member of the Maggia. When his younger brother Simon (as Wonder Man) supposedly died at the hands of the Avengers, Eric swore revenge on them. With contacts from the Maggia, he hires the Tinkerer for his plot and he builds on his right arm a scythe which can cut through almost anything and can fire energy blasts and electricity shocks. The scythe also contained a device created by Ultron that could put any person into a coma. Eric then takes the pseudonym Grim Reaper and nearly defeats the Avengers on his first outing, but was defeated by the Black Panther. He then forms the Lethal Legion with the likes of the Living Laser, Man-Ape, and the Swordsman and the group fought the Avengers, but they were defeated by the Vision. The Grim Reaper has remained a constant threat to the Avengers ever since.

EDITOR'S OPINIONFor the Marvel Universe Voice Compare we look at the Avengers supervillain and Wonder Man's brother, the Grim Reaper
Unknown Voice Actor - (If anyone knows who voices the Grim Reaper in United They Stand, please let us at Behind the Voice Actors know) The voice for Grim Reaper in the show was fine. It gives Grim Reaper a personality of mania and arrogance but becomes over the top at times.
Rick D. Wasserman - The Grim Reaper here is a just a hired goon and Wasserman was serviceable for the part. He plays Grim Reaper with a sense of smugness and villainous professionalism.
Lance Henriksen - The Grim Reaper in Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes was reimagined as a psychotic mercenary-for-hire for HYDRA and who better to voice a character like that than Lance Henriksen. Henriksen gives the Grim Reaper a creepy, sadistic voice with a not-so-subtle hint of bloodlust and its one of the best performances of the show.
All three were great as the Grim Reaper, but I'm leaning towards Lance Henriksen.
