Voice Compare » Marvel Universe » Warlord Krang
Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Warlord Krang with sound clips and images.
Warlord Krang is one of Namor the Sub Mariner's foes though he has made his comic book debut in the 1st Fantastic Four Annual back in 1963. Krang was once a loyal and respected general in the Atlantean Army however he desired to be Atlantis' ruler (and actually was the ruler when Namor went missing but that was only temporary.) However Krang had betrayed Namor and is now one of his most sworn enemies in which there were a couple of reasons why he did so such as on how he is in love with Lady Dorma whom wants nothing to do with him as she loves Namor, Krang has accused Namor of betraying Atlantis for calling off the attack against the Surface World to save Susan "Invisible Girl" Storm. Krang has all the powers than Atlanteans normally have such as a strong and agile body, but he is also a skilled strategist and fencer as well.
EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on the Marvel Universe VC section we have a little something for one of Namor's foes whom was once one of his loyal soldiers... WARLORD KRANG! We shall begin with the 60's Marvel Super Heroes series in which the late Paul Kligman was the first to voice Krang here. While Paul's Krang voice was a bit nasally I do like on how Paul was able to get that to work as well Paul's performance for the role was a nice mix of smooth & calculating to rather angry and vengeful so in other words its one of the better performances from Paul Kligman and in the show.
About a few decades later Warlord Krang appeared for a episode in the 90s Fantastic Four series in which he was voiced by Neil Ross. While it did seem a little strange at first on how Neil's voice for the role does seem like his Dr. Quest voice (or a smoother version of his Shipwreck voice) but Neil's voice for Krang did grow on me pretty quickly. Neil's performance does suit Krang's persona rather well as someone whom did seem loyal to Namor... at first until it was revealed that he had some ulterior motives. So in other words Neil's work as Krang is a pretty good example of his work and of the voice work in the show.
Warlord Krang made his Video Game Debut in Marvel Ultimate Alliance in which he was one of Attuma's minions and was voiced by Fred Tatasciore. Unlike his TV show counterparts, Fred's voice for the role was not nasally at all as it sounds a bit lower and rougher (in fact it kind of sounds like a higher version of his Megatron voice from Transformers War for Cybertron game). Fred's voice and performance for the role had a bit more regal tone to it which I do like as it also suits Krang's arrogant and treacherous nature rather well. While Krang may have been a bit role in that game Fred does do a impressive job with Krang nevertheless and does provide a good example of the voice work in that game. Overall I am not sure who to go for as all 3 of these guys did well in their own way.
