Hannah Barbera Voice Compares

Voice Compare » Spider-Man » Dr. Farley Stillwell

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Dr. Farley Stillwell with sound clips and images.
Dr. Farley Stillwell is one of the various secondary characters in the Spider Man series whom made his Comic Book Debut in The Amazing Spider Man #20 back in 1965. Farley Stillwell is a genetics scientist whom was doing experiments about how to induce animal mutations into Humans in which J. Jonah Jameson was interested and deciding to fund his research. The reason why J.J.J funded Farley's research was to experiment on Mac Gargan and turn him into the Scorpion namely to infuse Scorpion DNA into him as Mac wears a Scorpion-themed suit. However lets just say Farley ends up strongly regretting his involvement in this project (though his fate does differ depending on which story he was in) though he has a brother by the name of Harlan Stillwell whom used this experiment to create the Human Fly.

Today on the Spider Man VC section we take a look at the man whom is mainly known as the creator of The Scorpion... DR. FARLEY STILLWELL! Now lets begin...

Tom Harvey- I was pleasantly surprised here as Tom's voice for the role was actually quite fitting as it does have a intellectual feel (that does have a sense of sophistication but doesn't feel too overdone in that regard). Its probably one of Tom Harvey's better performances in that show.

Michael Rye- Michael Rye is actually a bit more fortunate here as Dr. Farley gets a somewhat bigger role in this show. Michael's performance for the role did suit on how Stillwell went from a eager though somewhat arrogant scientist to paranoid & insane a little later on in the series. Michael's voice was also rather fitting for the role as it does have a suitably intellectual feel (and I am cool with how his voice for the role does sound somewhat European). Michael Rye's work as Farley Stillwell is probably one of his better performances and a good example of the voice work in the show.

Overall both of these guys did rather well with this role but in the end I am going with Michael Rye the most here but Tom Harvey was a close second.

1) Tom Harvey: Pretty solid. He really does well as a more concerned scientist, who even though he's proud about his creation, you can tell that he still is really afraid about what the consequences may be. I also like how cool and collected he sounds, even in the face of danger.

2) Michael Rye: Quite possibly one of my favorite performances in the 90's cartoon, Mike does a really good job in making Stillwell sound very intellectual yet arrogant, and I really love how he makes the transition from eager scientist to the paranoid nutcase full of regret for creating the Scorpion. Like Galactic_Cyrus said, Mike could have been a great Foswell. And I also think that if he increased the rasp a little bit more, and added a treacherous attitude, he could have been a pretty boss Starscream, too.

Tom Harvey did good, but I think Michael did better. Michael Rye would have also made a great Frederick Foswell. Better than James Arnold Taylor, anyway.

This is Tom's best role in the whole 60's series I must admit so that's why i'm going with him although Michael was pretty good too.
