Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Spawn with sound clips and images.
Spawn is the titular character of the Spawn series whose comic book debut was in Malibu Sun #13 in May of 1992. Spawn was originally Al Simmons a man who was a renowned Marine then he became a member of the CIA in which he became a covert ops assassin for the US Government. However during a mission Al Simmons was killed by one of his fellow mercenaries thanks to his treacherous director Jason Wynn however he was later revived by the monstrous creature known as Malebolgia and became Spawn. When Al became Spawn he originally had very little memory of his past life (but over the course of the story he regains more of his memory) in fact the reason why he became Spawn is that Al made a deal with Malebolgia on how he will become Spawn just so he can at least see his beloved wife Wanda Simmons one more time. Now Spawn is often fighting the forces of evil with his demonic axe and/or various firearms as Spawn is an incredibly powerful and immortal being who has had other abilities such as flight and teleportation.

EDITOR'S OPINION

Well folks for the first Spawn Voice Compare shall be for none other than the eponymous anti-hero himself... SPAWN! Let us begin...

Keith David- Keith was such a perfectly natural choice for the role as his deep voice for the role sounds so awesomely menacing whenever he takes on the forces of evil. However Keith's performance also suited Spawn's more sympathetic moments as a man who mourns the loss of his former life with his beloved wife. I also liked on how Keith's performance does suit on how Spawn is a hero even if he is very much an Anti-Hero. Keith David's work as Spawn is a fine example of his work and of the voice work in the show.

Maurice Dean Wint- Maurice's voice for the role was okay but a bit too light especially compared to the others. But to be fair Maurice's performance is decent as it does suit a brooding anti-hero like Spawn pretty well. However while Maurice's work on the role was not bad per say but he has done better and is only an okay example of the voice work in that game. (Though to be fair unlike the other VA's here the fact that Maurice gets the least amount of lines here does not help.)

Kevin Michael Richardson
- KMR's deep voice was also very suiting for the role as he also sounded very similar to Keith David as well. (In which this occurred a few years before he became known as a alternate choice for Keith David thanks to Despero and Tombstone.) But while KMR seems to be playing up the "Tormented Anti-Hero who longs for a certain loved one" aspect a bit more he does well with that while still sounding like a demonic force to be reckoned with and is a good example of KMR's work.

Overall Keith David's work is classic but KMR and Victor are a close second while Maurice is a decent third.

Ah yes, Spawn. A highly underrated super/anti-hero. I have to admit, Keith is easily the best out of them, he did a perfect job at making Spawn sound bad-ass and threatening, yet at the same time tormented and depressed.

Kevin is a good replacement, and I have to admit, of all the times he's emulated Keith, he did it the best with Spawn. He nails everything Keith nailed, he's just slightly deeper.

Maurice is, well, meh. He seems to be inconsistent. It's not bad, but he's weak when compared to Kevin and Keith.

Kieth David is iconic, that being said they probably couldn't have done better than Kevin Michael Richardson when it came to a replacement.

I find it funny that two of the options are Kevin Michael Richardson.

But seriously, they're all good but Keith David is the best of the bunch.

@TheGreenSpeedster

One of them was originally "Victor Stone" before I found evidence (*brag brag brag*) that Vic is a pseudonym for Kevin.

I'm going with Keith. Kevin Michael Richardson is good. I believe Victor Stone is KMR so he is still good.

Spawn, a pretty badass and underrated superhero:

Keith David - Keith fit very, very naturally into the role, being badass and all. His voice fits Spawn perfectly, and he's also able to convey a range of convincing emotions.

Kevin Michael Richardson - Like Keith David, he fits naturally into it and he's a fairly obvious choice.

Victor Stone - On the off chance this is an entirely seperate person to KMR, it's damn good. But if it is KMR, then he once again turns in a great performance.

Maurice Dean Wint - Good on it's own merits, but weak when compared to the others.

That's my review, in that order.

@Cheesyfeet106 Well he's not so much a super hero, as much as he is an anti hero.

Sorry, just felt I had to correct you on that one, other than that I pretty much agree with you.

Was there a role where Keith wasn't amazing at. Admittedly I didn't like the Spawn show but Keith's performance made me want to keep watching.

Keith David of course, Kevin and Victor are pretty good too.

I'm gonna go with Keith David, though Kevin Michael Richardson were also good. I'd say the same of Victor Stone, but like a few other people, unless otherwise stated, I'm of the opinion that it is KMR under another name.

Victor Stone... That's Cyborg's (Teen Titans) real name... I smell pseudo-name...

Keith is the best. No question, especially since he gets the best material to work with. Kevin's not bad either, though.

Oh and also, what's with the "yeah" sound by the end of Maurice's clip?
pete

@Metabad Think it's background noise from the person playing the game or someone who was in the room with him.

Truth be told, I like them all. Maurice Dean Wint did fall a little flat when compared to the others, but on his own he was pretty good, I still like him.

I guess my vote will go towards Keith David, having been the first voice. But with that said Victor Stone had a damn fine impression, and Kevin Michael Richardson seemed like he'd naturally fit.

For the longest time, I thought Victor Stone was a pseudonym for KMR.

@ninjinister I think it could be, actually.

@NCZ I said that on the Heihachi MIshima VC since Victor's voice sounds just like him there and and even here their takes are similar.

@ninjinister It certainly does sound plausible but keep in mind until recently everyone thought that Jason Palmer was an alias of Jeff Nimoy so we can't be too sure.

@pete on top of that, Victor Stone has no online information at all other than his involvement with Soulcalibur II
NCZ (Admin)

@Pokejedservo I think this one seems pretty in favour of it being KMR.

1. They've both voiced Spawn.
2. They both sound exactly the same as Spawn. Pretty impressive if they're not the same guy, since KMR's voice and the manner he delivers his lines in are very distinct.
3. Soulcalibur II was recorded in California and used some LA voice actors (Wendee Lee and Debra Rogers), so it's not unthinkable.
4. "Victor Stone" is Cyborg's real name in Teen Titans. In this interview, Kevin mentions that he's always wanted to play Cyborg, and even refers to him as "Vic Stone". Likely a fan of the character if he has that desire and knows his real name.

Finally (5), there's no info about Victor Stone online. I think it seems VERY likely that it's a KMR alias.

@ninjinister I thought Victor's Spawn sounded like KMR before I listened to KMR's voice clip. After I did, I thought this is definitely the same guy.
