EDITOR'S OPINION

This is a tricky Voice Compare since the character is caucasian and black. I think every voice actor did a good job. My favorite Caucasian Nick Fury voices are by Jack Angel, Scott McDonald and Scottie Ray. My favorite Black Nick Fury voices are by Andre Ware and Samuel L. Jackson.

Jackson is great as Fury in live-action. But there's plenty of VAs who I'd pick before him on this poll.

Classic Fury

1.) Jim Byrnes
2.) Phillip Abbott
3.) Jack Angel

Ultimate Fury

1.) Chi McBride
2.) Andre Ware
3.) Alex Desert

I just noticed that Wolverine and the X-Men Fury is missing the wrong eye. Literally every other depiction of Fury has the patch over his left eye.

Oh yes, my favorite Fury is Scott MacDonald. Something about his attitude just feels right for Fury.

@pete Even though it's nothing to really be corrected.

Right or left eye doesn't matter - it's irrelevant to pretty much any measurable quality of his character. It has no bearing on his action, dialogue or decisions. It's like whether Hawkeye is right or left handed. It don't matta'. :)

My favourite white Nick Fury is Scott MacDonald due to his memorable commanding voice. If Marvel & Disney ever plan on using white Nick again, they must hire Scott.

My favourite black Nick Fury is hard to pick since I think they all fit (except Kevin). I guess i'll go with Samuel since he made the character memorable in the films.

I have grown on Chi in the past few years. It surprised me that he wasn't in Lego Marvel Super Heroes though.

Out of both versions I prefer black Nick Fury. Like I said, all his voices for that version fit (except Kevin, again) so I can listen to any1 of them without saying that they suck.

White Fury: The only voices I don't like for Fury in this category are Phillip Abbot, who sounds far too old, and Scottie Ray, who feels miscast and would have suited Wolverine much better. It goes back and forth between Scott MacDonald and David Kaye for my favorite, they really suit the gruff, experienced commander of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Black Fury: Everyone but KMR, Khary Payton, and Keith David all suit the character just fine. Keith just sounds too light for Nick, while KMR and Khary just sound too young and lack a commanding presence, although KMR could probably do a great job given much better voice direction and a better written version to work with. Dave Fennoy and Chi Mcbride are my favorites here, both are equally fitting for their respective takes on the character.

Overall, it's clear I'm not entirely sure who to vote for here. :P

I'm actually going with Dave Fennoy. On a side note; I wasn't crazy about Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury in voice or in live-action. Not that he was bad, he's Samuel L. Jackson; he was fairly charming, commanding, funny, and likable. The thing is he was just Samuel L. Jackson playing a typical Samuel L. Jackson character. His performance and characterization weren't specific enough to Nick Fury. He was too recognizable and I thought they should have gotten someone who wasn't as widely known. To me, it was just Samuel L. Jackson playing Samuel L. Jackson.

@PsychicVoiceSpy Well, as you may or may not know, the Ultimate version of Nick was modeled after Sam with his permission, So getting him to play the character was basically a dream come true for Marvel. But I do agree with you about it just Sam playing Sam.

Black/Ultimate/Earth number that I won't remember/Samuel Jackson with an eyepatch Fury
*Cause people complain when I say "black" Fury*

Dave Fennoy: Pretty good, he's got a calm and in charge personality while having a slight sense of humor. Dave has done better, he should have given him more of a personality but still good.

Andre Ware:...eh, he's got the personality fine but kinda generic.

Alex Desert: I like him a lot (I thought he was better in EMH) I liked his calm and in charge voice yet could still show off some humor and still sounded in command.

Dean Redman: Alright, he's got the "don't mess with me or SHIELD or I will f*** you up" which is good for Nick. He should have had more personality than just a commanding voice but he's still pretty good.

Kevin Michael Richardson: Sadly, the weakest. Way too high (odd saying that about KMR) and the personality is all wrong for Fury. Kevin could have been better (hopefully without his usual voice).

John Eric Bentley: He was better in Rise of Technovore, here he's an okay at best Samuel impression. In RoT he was a mix of an impression and his own take.

Samuel L Jackson: Better in the moives, here he's kinda wooden though that's from such a small role in the game.

Khary Payton: While I like it when Khary shows his range but I don't think he was a good call here. Not bad but too young for Nick and doesn't have the bite or power Nick should have. Maybe he could do better if he used more of his Black Manta voice but I dunno if he can do Fury.

Chi McBride: One of my favorites. While people hate and complain and whine about US (I get some of it but a lot of people just need to build a bridge) but Chi doesn't get any hate. Infact, I hear amny saying Chi is the standout voice in the show and I agree. Chi has that natural "calm but watch yourself'' voice and can go to secretive agent to large and in charge commander and even a mentor at times plus giving Fury a dry sense of humor that brings some life to the character. I would love to hear Chi play Fury more in other media.

Keith David: This is who I imagine voicing (hell could probably play him in live action) this Nick Fury. Though he should have been a bit raspier or gruffer and sounds kinda wooden but I haven't played the game or seen any videos of it some maybe he does have some personality.

White/Class/Earth 121332/Whatever Fury

Philip Abbott: I like the accent (Boston right?), he has a good attitude with the performance and a good level of command in the voice. He could be better but a good just for Fury's first VA role.

Jack Angel: Eh, he's not great but not terrible. Basically he gets the job done but nothing really rememberable.

Mark Gibbon: Sadly, the worst. He's more generic than Jack and a little young sounding (not too young but should have been better). It might not be his fault, Nick got a small (and kinda pointless) cameo.

Jim Byrnes: Not bad, he's got a feel of someone in command, maybe should have had a gruffer or deeper voice but pretty good to say the least.

Scott MacDonald: Perfect! He's got a good gruff and tough voice that fits for someone in command of SHIELD and makes Nick sound like someone who has the balls to go up to Dr. Doom himself and say "Go f*** yourself". He's my favorite.

Marc Graue: Not bad, voice should have been a tad deeper and gruffer but he's got all the basics for Nick so he's alright.

David Kaye: I actually didn't like David. He was really inconstant, sometimes losing his gruffness and other times sounding like his Cap. When he does have the gruffness he's okay bringing the secretive side to Fury as well as his level of power.

Scottie Ray: WAY too gruff, he's almost demonic. However he does give a feeling of power in the voice so if he toned down the gruffness he probably could have been pretty good.

Coming from someone who lives in Massachusetts, I can tell you the accent that Philip Abbott is using is not Boston. It sounds more like the stereotypical New York Cop dialect. Sorry if it sounds like I'm being a know-it-all. It just bugs me how, because there's been so many failed attempts at Boston accents in movies, (Mel Gibson in Edge of Darkness) that most people don't know what a boston accent sounds like, or they confuse it for a New York accent. (It's really not that hard to do. The only actor I've heard nail it is Steve Blum in Arkham City)

@pete In mainstream Marvel, white Nick Fury retired, and was replaced by his son, Nick Fury Jr. He's half black and white, but looks black. And he also has an eye patch from an unrelated incident. That is how they wrote him into Earth 616. I guess it was only a matter of time.

And for Ultimate Fury, I say:

Chi McBride. Yep, he's pretty much perfect.

It was a tough choice for second but I think I'll go with Andre Ware. He was one of the first Ultimate Fury's and just nailed it.

Alex Désert takes third. He was just a great choice for Fury. Not only that, he started off good in Wolverine but then really rocked it in the Avengers.

Dean Redman was surprisingly awesome, sounding really authoritative yet still cool.

John Eric Bentley was good too, even though he didn't sound that much like Sam. I have heard that he improves in Rise of Technovore but I've yet to see it. When I do, he may possibly just go up a few spaces.

Khary Payton sounds maybe a little too young, but I can't hate Khary and in every other area he was pretty much excellent.

Dave Fennoy has a similar problem, as he sounds a little bit too deep. But I do like his performance a lot.

Now, it pains me to put him this low as he IS Nick Fury, but I think Samuel L. Jackson is just a little bored sounding in the part. Don't get me wrong, he isn't BAD, not at all, but it just feels kinda like a phoned-in video game voice over.

Kevin Michael Richardson, man. He was such a great pick for Fury (if a little obvious) but WOW did this voice disappoint. His normal speaking voice would have probably suited Fury much better. I can't even describe what's wrong with this voice, but it's just a mistake.

I find it amusing (don't you?) how my thoughts on Classic and Ultimate Nick Fury are kinda similar. All but one does a really good job, and the one performance which fails to step up to the plate each time came from really good voice actors who I know can do better.

Also I picked a "Mc" (or Mac) as my favourite. XD

For Classic Fury, I say:

Scott MacDonald. He has an edge of authority, aged feel, damn good acting and just all round badassery. The perfect Classic Fury.

Jim Byrnes is a close second for me. He sounds a tad lighter than Scott but it really works and he has most of the good points Scott already has.

David Kaye also sounded good, not as good as his predecessor but he still did really good.

Jack Angel is my preferred voice from the 90's. He just sounds more like Fury to me.

After him though, Phillip Abbott is still pretty good. But he lacks something that I feel makes him sound like Nick Fury. Good voice and performance and what not, but there's something missing and I can't quite put my finger on it.

Marc Grue did pretty good for what he had but was largely forgettable.

Mark Gibbon also did fine but is in the same boat as Marc.

Scottie Ray is WAY too raspy. His voice just sounds forced and not very good at all. I know he could do better.

Other than him though, everyone was a pretty good Classic Nick Fury.

For classic Nick Fury, I'm going with Scott MacDonald, though Marc Graue, Mark Gibbon, Jim Byrnes, and David Kaye were good, too

For Ultimate Nick Fury, yeah, giving this one to Samuel L. Jackson without a doubt, especially since starting with the Ultimates, Ultimate Nick Fury was based on the guy. That said, Dave Fennoy, Alex Desert, Chi McBride, Khary Payton, Dean Redman, and Andre Ware are good, too.

I hope after The Avengers comes they use white fury a bit more.

@pete No offense, but if anything, they're probably use Ultimate Fury more after the Avengers movie. In fact, the classic Marvel universe recently introduced a version of Ultimate Fury.

@pete In the mini-series "Battle Scars", they introduced a character based on Ultimate Fury who turns out to be the original Fury's biological son. His real name even turns out to be "Nick Fury, Jr."

Man, they actually ALL do a really great job. Jim Byrnes is my vote for the caucasian Fury and Andre Ware for the Africa-American version. :)

Here is my list:

Black:
1. Samuel L. Jackson (I always think to myself "He really is Nick!")
2. Dean Redman
3. Andre Ware (sounds pretty authorative)
4. Khary Payton
5. Alex Desert (He sounds sorta too jazzy for the part, but still a decent choice)
6. Dave Fennoy
7. John Eric Bentley
8. Kevin M. Richardson (sounds too shaky for the role)

White:
1. Mark Gibbon
2. Scott McDonald
3. David Kaye
4. Marc Graue
5. Scottie Ray
6. Jack Angel
7. Jim Byrnes
8. Philip Abbott

Really should just split the two version of him into two different comparisons. As it stands, it's not really fair.

@KaiserNeko I don't know much about Nick Fury, but if race is the only difference, I don't have a problem with it being one. He's still the same character whether he's black or white.

@NCZ They are similar, but NOT the same, I can assure you that.

@NCZ OG Nick Fury is less cool and controlled than Ultimate. Their personalities are different enough, as well as their backgrounds, to make them different characters.

Furthermore, if I think about Ultimate Nick Fury, I can only imagine an African American actor playing him. For -obvious- reasons. So I'm stuck voting on ONE VERSION of the character, even though there is, quite frankly, two different versions with differing personalities and ethnicities!

For the standard Nick Fury I choose Scott McDonald, he plays a convincing military like leader.

For the Ultimate one I'd go with Andre Ware.

For classic fury my vote goes to Scott MacDonald, he did him perfectly! I'll give second place to Marc Graue & Jim Byrnes with Scottie Ray & David Kaye in third. As for ultimate fury my vote goes to, (who else!), Samuel L Jackson! Second place goes to Andre Ware & Dave Fennoy with Dean Redman & Alex Desert in third. not much to say on Kevin, but John Eric Bentley was good! However, in a game where he was supposed to fill in for Sam Jackson, he sounded way too different! I'd like to see him in another project as Fury, where he could probably be better appreciated! :)

Well no offense, but I have to disagree! I'm not trying to be rude, its just I dont like how the ultimate nicks been outshining the classic nick! Ive always been a bigger fan of the classic nick and he just doesnt get enough publicity anymore, one little animated appearance wouldnt hurt. I'll stop now before it starts to sound like im ranting, but I will say that the ultimate nick is a whole lot more bad @$$!!! :)

Since Ultimate Fury is based on Samuel L. Jackson, the only suitable voice is Sam himself. However, Alex Desert is very good for the role.

I like how Ultimate Fury is pretty much taking over. 616 Fury is slowly being phased out of existence. I like it. I've always like Ultimate Fury better.

Jim Byrnes and David Kaye are the best white Nick Fury voices. For black Nick Fury, Samuel L. Jackson wins hands-down.

@arkhaminmate1024

ignore smarttamarr94's rudeness...

I talked it over with the other admins and we're going to keep it as it is for now.

After all we have some other VC in similar situations.

e.g. Terry McGinnis of Batman Beyond in the Batman VC (most would assume is Bruce Wayne).

Also some Transformers VC too.

Uhh may I make a suggestion? Why not create a separate VC for Ultimate Nick Fury and 616 Fury?

It's possible the source I screen-capped the pic from might have been a mirror video. Either that or TPTB made a mistake.

Still missing Khary Payton from X-Men Legends 2: Rise of Apocalypse. If anyone can send me or direct me to a clip I'll add him asap.

Also I'm not 100% sure John Eric Bentley's clip is him since info for the Iron Man 2 game said he did additional dialogue. However since it sounded difference than Samuel L. Jackson's voice I used it.

If I'm wrong feel free to correct me and give me a legit clip.
