Voice Compare » Marvel Universe » Taskmaster
Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Taskmaster with sound clips and images.
Taskmaster is a known Marvel Comics Super Villain (though he sometimes alters between that and anti-hero in recent comics) in which his comic book debut is in Avengers #195 May 1980. Taskmaster's real name is Anthiony Masters and one thing that is truly consistent about Taskmaster is that he has highly photographic reflexes in which he can imitate the fighting moves of his opponents just by observing them (he also has perfect vocal mimicry skills and have impersonated heroes before). Taskmaster was originally known as a foe of the Avengers but he has joined various organizations over the years in which he has had a ally/enemy relationship of those such as S.H.I.E.L.D and Deadpool. Taskmaster has trained Marvel Super-Villains and occasionally even Superheroes such as the 1st Spider Woman A.K.A Jessica Drew.
EDITOR'S OPINIONToday we take a little look at the "Combat Chameleon" himself... TASKMASTER! Lets begin shall we?
Steve Blum- Okay I understand the fact that Taskmaster is from Brooklyn, New York however Steve's attempt at the accent was okay at best. I mean don't get me wrong Steve's attempt at the accent was okay but I have heard a lot better. Anyways Steve was portraying Taskmaster as an opportunistic thug in which he does an okay job with it. So in other words its not a bad performance but its not exactly one of Steve's better ones.
Clancy Brown- Now Clancy's voice for the role felt perfectly natural right from the start as his deep and somewhat gruff voice for the role was VERY suitable if I do say so myself. Clancy's performance had a very sinister tone as he plays the role of Taskmaster as a malicious yet manipulative mercenary rather well. So in other words its another fine example of Clancy doing a villainous role well and a fine example of the voice work in the show.
Overall I am clearly going with Clancy Brown on this one.
