"I am The Vision of the Avengers. I have saved this planet thirty-seven times. Each day you live. Each breath you take. Each beat of your heart. Each is due to my actions. Thirty-seven times over."

No Point Beating about the Bush Here are my Top 5 Favourite Vision Voices:

5. Dave Wittenberg
4. David Kaye
3. Roger Rose
2. Shawn MacDonald/John Paul Karliak
1. Peter Jessop

Future VA Suggestions:

Jay Goede would be Fantastic as Vision, using a Warmer, more Gentlemanly version of his MewTwo voice. I dare anyone to prove me wrong.

I also think Peter Serafinowicz would be a Solid Voice for Vision. A similar voice to his Darth Maul would be a nice middle ground between Paul Bettany's and Peter Jessop's Voices.

I also recommend Adam Howden, Oliver Wyman, Hugh Dancy and Michael Dobson.

Dave Wittenberg sounds more bored than machine-like, IMO.

Kaye sounds a tad too stuck-up for my tastes. Also not surprised he got to voice him. :/

I still think Peter Jessop & Roger Rose work best.

Knew it was only a matter of time Kaye would voice Vision. And as expected, he did a pretty good job

David Kaye works as Vision, though given how much AA takes from the MCU, it's not much of a surprise.

Really digging David Kaye's voice for Vision.

I personally prefer Dave Wittenberg. His voice is pretty cool and his delivery is fittingly monotone.

Peter Jessop in next. I really enjoy his delivery and voice, but not as much as Wittenberg's.

David Kaye is surprisingly good. I couldn't tell it was him at all, and he delivers a pretty compelling performance.

Roger Rose is also pretty nice. He has the delivery down and his voice fits.

Ron Rubin also fits well. Not much else to say.

Shawn MacDonald and John Paul Karliak are decent, but they don't click with me.

Vision was actually in a recent episode of Avengers Assemble. I won't spoil it for anyone here, but I was pretty surprised when I found out who voiced him.

This is a tough one since I liked most of the voices.

I think I like Peter Jessop best, Jessop is a VA who just excels at robotic characters and Vision is not exception. He's a bit more factual but he still puts a lot into his delivery.

Shawn McDonald would be my second favourite, he has an excellent voice and is quite underrated, he should have another go at Vision.

Roger Rose, Dave Wittenburg and Ron Rubin are all the same IMO. They're good but there's something a bit off with their takes, I think Rose is too slow and Wittenburg and Rubin are a bit too light for my liking.

John Paul Karliak is the first ever J.A.R.V.I.S Vision voice and he's pretty good actually. He's quite enjoyable with his voice and delivery.

Peter Jessop is getting my vote but honestly this is a mostly solid VC and everyone here did the role of Vision well.

BONUS: I could see Ian James Corlett making a great Vision with some tweaking with his Sentinel voice. Steve Blum doing something similar to his Laughing Man would be great too. Maybe Kevin T. Collins doing a less flamboyant Griffith could work?

Sticking with Peter Jessop, though Dave Wittenberg and John Paul Karliak were alright.

JP is okay, he needed a little more to work with for me to get a full opinion on him.

Tie between Shawn Mcdonald and Ron Rubin. I really like the sound of Ron's voice for Vision, but the delivery makes him sound a tad bit too robotic. Shawn is good, but if he had the same filter, I think he'd be my clear cut favorite.

I like Peter Jessop as well, but his cold, robotic take only works for Vision before he becomes more human, emotionally speaking. I need to hear more of him to see if his take evolves, like Vision's personality.

Karliak is serviceable, but not much else. He sits at the bottom.

Paul Bettany was pretty much perfect, though I'm not sure he counts as a 'voice performance' because that was pretty much a full live performance

He is one of my favorites though. Dave Wittenberg and Peter Jessop are the best ones for me on this poll.

@ConfusedPhantom Vision wasn't CGI. It was all make-up and costumes, so Bettany sadly won't make it to this compare.

For me, I'm tied between Roger Rose and Peter Jessop. They both do a great job as Vision.

Not sure how I feel about Paul Bettley voicing him in Age of Ultron.

@HyperVoiceActing Bettany didn't voice Vision. It was all costumes and make-up.

@The Doctor - I know that now. I made that comment before I saw any real footage of him.

Peter Jessop is my favorite. Shawn MacDonald sounds pretty similar so he's good. Dave Wittenberg is nice. The others are good, also. Not really sure what else to say.

I'm surprised that Tom Kane hasn't had a crack at Vision yet. He's got, like, the perfect voice. That calm, monotone, robotic performance. Take his EMH Ultron, make it a bit lighter and BAM.

Peter is Number1 for me while Shawn is 2nd.

I like Roger's take so he is 3rd but sometimes I feel his voice for Vision puts me to sleep at moments.

Ron & Dave are both just decent.

They're all good, but I'm biased to Peter Jessop since he's the guy I hear as my user namesake's voice after all. Shawn and Roger are close seconds. Ron Rubin is a bit too...feminine sounding, and Dave Wittenberg, while decent, is just his Kakashi voice.

I thought Peter would be a good Vision long before he was cast. I guess I got my wish.

Ah if I hadn't posted this when I did this might have taken longer.. Also thanks to GothamRed for telling me I posted the wrong link. That can happen when you're tired. Peter Jessop for the win.

@pete well i posted the right link in existing voice compares before you fixed your link anyway, but that's for helping me find those newer four episodes online

Well to be honest you guys don't need to post links at all... I'm more than capable of finding videos myself (and so is the rest of the team) and most of the time I've actually already recorded the clips before you even post links. :)

Sorry it's not always uploaded asap but sometimes other things (site related and real life) take higher priority.
