Today on the Marvel Universe VC section we take a look at "Imperius Rex" himself... NAMOR THE SUB MARINER! Since this is a rather large VC I shall simply say that while most of these guys are very good I am going with Michael Adamthwaite and Joe J Thomas the most on this VC (though James Warwick was pretty close though).

Anyone think Travis Willingham would make a good Namor?

@GothamRed He'd be good but I'd rather Fred Tatasciore

Michael Adamthwaite is EXACTLY how I imagine the character to sound like. Raoul Trujilo comes second place. Joe J Thomas has a great voice, but is utterly lacking in Namor's trademark arrogance. Peter Renaday, on the other hand, might be a bit TOO arrogant sounding even when the character's lines aren't meant to be so. The above four voices before Raoul were just plain campy.

Adamthwaite's voice is really arrogant and smug, just like Namor.

So he gets my vote

Honestly I always heard Christopher Sabat as Namor doing his Vegeta. But of those who did voice Namor, I like;
1. Michael Adamthwaite
2. Peter Renaday
3. Raoul Trujillo

@Spider-Fox Sabat's voice for Vegeta in DBZ Kai would be PERFECT for Namor!

Michael and Peter are great. Joe's was a little too light for me.

Does this goes to his own Voice Compare Group.

Given how he's been affliated with various teams in the Marvel Universe, I think this one's fine where it is.

@Mr.Fennoy93 I...I have no idea what you're asking/saying, ha ha.

@TylerMirage He was asking if he got his own VC section.

What was updated, I don't see or hear a difference in the clips

@Music Meister yeah I know

I'm gonna go with Michael Adamthwaite for Namor, though Peter Renaday was also good as Namor.

I'm kinda sad, I didn't even notice the two different voices in the same game the first time around
said at 12:52 AM on Fri May 11 2012
@GothamRed Because they were on different versions of the game. Joe did him the Xbox, Xbox 360, PC, PS2, and PSP versions of the game well did him in the PS2 and PSP versions.

@pete Peter did him in the PS2 and PSP versions. Sad I forgot someone with my own name.

I'm going with John Vernon. The best of the older voices with William Woodson at 2nd and the Unknown VA at 3rd. I also think he is the most accurate sounding out of all these guys. You can't say that about any/every voice from old Marvel cartoons.

My list is

8. Unknown VA(he was too soft with his lines plus he broke them up unless that's a bad clip. Quote "Neptune's Trident I've never... seen a horror... like this... before

7. Joe J Thomas(sounds too soft)

6. James Warwick(something sounds a tad bit off to me)

5. Raoul Trujillio(good but soft)

4. Peter Renaday(firm and deep but a bit off as well)

3. Michael Adamthwaite(great effort but none of the modern vices satisfy me)

2. William Woodson(sounds like a proud royal prince perfect voice)

1. John Vernon(In addition to what I already said he sounds the most like a royal prince or king and gives him a fir commanding voice as well perfect for someone like Namor)

I conclude John Vernon and William Woodson as the best of the bunch here as the other voices don't quite fit for me.

@pete Neptune's Trident I've never... seen a horror... like this... before"
He said this line when he was near toxic poison, that's why he said it like that
said at 11:15 PM on Sun Nov 25 2012
@Music Meister Oh well it sounds bit like old school Batman and Robin.
said at 3:21 PM on Mon Nov 17 2014
@pete Woodson is my favorite, being followed closely by Vernon.

Why Woodson???

Only he can deliver lines like this with a straight face:



Woodson = Best Namor Ever

Vernon = Close Enough
