Franchise: Spider-Man

Michael Morbius is a tragic sympathetic antagonist/protagonist in the Spider-Man storyline whom made his comic book debut in The Amazing Spider-Man #101 in October of 1971. Michael Morbius was known as a brilliant young scientist whom turned himself into a vampire due to a experiment gone wrong (though the circumstances behind this scenario do differ on which story we are talking about) and he fights his vampire urges though he often loses.  Morbius has had a long history of fighting and working with various heroes such as Spider-Man himself over the years. Back in the 1970's while he was a tragic and sympathetic villain he was still a villain nevertheless but he started to have a more heroic role in the early 90's in which he has had quite a history as a hero and a villain ever since.

Today on the Spider Man VC section we take a look at this tragic night-walker known as MICHAEL MORBIUS! Let us begin...

Nick Jameson- First of all yes I am aware about how there are those a little sore at how FOX refused to allow the writers of the show to ever say the word "Blood" so they went with Plasma due to censorship issues but to be honest its not that big a deal to me. Anyways Nick's work as Morbius is very good as his voice and performance suited on how this Romanian young man went from smug pretty-boy scientist to a man tormented by his new urges on becoming a vampire. Basically its a fine example of Nick's work and of the voice work in the show.

Sean Donnellan- While Morbius had a small appearance here with a few lines Sean's voice and performance do suit the role fairly well. (In which Sean's voice for the role does occasionally remind me of Liam O'Brien as well.) But still Sean's overall work on the role does suit on how Morbius is known as a "Tragic Vampire" well and is a good example of the voice work in the game.

Overall both of these guys are good but I will go with Nick Jameson the most here.

Ben Diskin might be my favorite, he has this great growl in his voice that mixes well with the accent while still having a mad scientist sort of sound to him.

Sticking with Sean Donnellan, but Benjamin Diskin was good, too.

Ben Diskin is extremely awesome as Morbius. I love how hammy and intense he is. A good example of Diskin's range.

Nick Jameson also fits quite well. He is pretty earnest and compelling, which is great.

Tom Kenny is actually pretty entertaining, actually. It's a pretty good example of his range.

Sean Donnellan just doesn't sound as good as the others, unfortunately.

Nick Jameson's Michael Morbius is just awesome, his accent might sound a bit silly but he sounds really earnest and likeable in his delivery.

Sean Donnellan is decent but the clip sounds very inaudible, from what I can tell Sean sounds kinda generic.

Tom Kenny is decent too, though he could have been better if he channelled the performance he used for Nightstrike in RID.

In the end I'm going with Nick.

BONUS: Just for the lulz I'd love to see Tommy Wiseau as Michael Morbius either voice wise or in live-action.

@Autovolt Makes sense. Tommy Wiseau is already a vampire in real life.

@Nightmare Crusher He was going to be a vampire in the movie too, and with a flying car at that.

@Metabad I know. I can't even imagine how he would have tried to pull it off given the spectacular green screen effects in The Room. I need to get my hands on that original script somehow.

Honestly, I could talk about The Room and the insanity behind it all day. It's such a fascinating piece of film. I genuinely believe it deserves to be in The National Film Registry because there really is nothing like it.

@Nightmare Crusher Would've been amazing to see.

I guess if he ever does a sequel, that's the only way he'll be able to bring Johnny back.

Going with Nick Jameson.

I thought the Tom Kenny version had a yo-yo at first.

Tom is alright but a bit too typical vampire kind of voice

I like Nick but Sean is more of what the character should be like.

Can't decide. Morbius has yet to be treated really well in an adaptation.

Based on actually playing the game I like Sean Donnellan more than Nick Jameson.

Nick Jameson. Gotta love his delivery of "Feliiiicia".

Both are good, but I think I'm gonna go with Sean Donnellan for Morbius.

@GothamRed Well there isnt a good quality video of Sean's performance so that's mostly to blame.
