Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Songbird with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Marvel Universe

Songbird was originally a Super-Villainess in Marvel Comics but is now current a Super-Heroine whom made her comic book debut in Marvel Two-in-One #54 in August of 1979. While Songbird was originally the evil Screaming Mimi but she ended up becoming a hero when she got romantically involved with Abner Jenkins (whom was originally known as one of Spiderman's foes The Beetle). Whether she is Songbird or Screaming Mimi she has the power of Sound Manipulation (but as Songbird she can also make "Solid Sound" constructs.) Nowadays Songbird is known as the leader of the New Thunderbolts whom is a Superhero team however depending on the story not everyone is willing to trust her due to people remember her more villainous past.

Today on the Marvel Universe VC we take a look at this lady whom use to be known as Screaming Mimi... SONGBIRD! We will actually begin with Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 in which Susan Spano is voicing Songbird. Susan's voice for the role was actually rather lovely and is a pretty good fit for the role here. Susan is playing the role of Songbird as someone whom is trying to get the job done even though people doubt her due to her past and does it fairly well. While Susan's work as Songbird is not one of the best performances in that game it is a good example of the voice work in that game nevertheless.

In The Super Hero Squad Show, Songbird appeared for one episode in a brief cameo voiced by Julie Morrison. Julie's voice for the role was pretty good as well as her delivery was pretty solid, unfortunately like I said before Songbird's appearance in the show was a brief cameo so this is all what Songbird said in the show. However despite the small amount of screentime Julie's work was rather suiting for the role in general and does make one wish that Songbird had a bit more lines so in other words Julie's work on Songbird is a pretty good example of the show's voice work. Overall while Susan Spano has the advantage of a LOT more lines but Julie's work on the role was pretty good as well.

I really liked Susan Spano's performance in Ultimate Alliance 2, so my vote goes to her.

Susan Spano takes the cake. She just really fits the character. I had no clue who Songbird was until this game so to me she is the definitive and best voice for her.

There's something about Hale that really doesn't work for me here. Maybe it's the delivery or maybe it's the accent, but there's something every time I listen to it that really doesn't sound right.

I'm gonna change my vote to Jennifer Hale.

I'm glad my wish for Jennifer Hale to play Songbird came true, but I'm disappointed. On one hand, the accent is a cool idea because it fits Melissa's background. On the other hand, it sounds too much like her Rogue voice and I think it could have been toned down.

I don't think any of them are perfect, but Susan is still my favorite.

VC thoughts update

Jennifer Hale is my favorite. I love the accent, and she sounds pretty energetic and spunky.

Susan Spano is also great. The delivery is a little bit odd at times, but she's still pretty solid.

Julie Morrison is good, but she doesn't have a lot to work with.

Susan Spano really did my favorite Marvel Comics heroine justice here. She sounds like an experienced, collected former super villain who has paid her dues and is on her way to redemption, although she also has a rough edge to her voice. Julie Morrison is OK, but I do think she could do better with more lines, as Screaming Mimi or the early Thunderbolt version.

I know I'm biased as she's my favorite voice actress... but Jennifer Hale for Songbird, anyone?

Is anyone suprise that Spano is winning? Is there any VC where SHS-version of character is consider to be the best?

I think this is a bad example, I think Julie Morrison would be pretty good in give more lines (and let's face it, a serious take on the character). She sounded pretty good

@Vincent The only one I can think of is the Egghead compare.
