EDITOR'S OPINION

Today on the Spider Man VC section we shall revisit the Robertson family, a while back there was a VC for Joe "Robbie" Robertson so today we have a VC for Robbie's son... RANDY ROBERTSON! Now unlike Randy's father we shall begin this with the 94 Spiderman series in which Randy appeared for a couple of episodes voiced by Alfonso Ribeiro. Now in the 94 Spider Man series Randy was depicted as how he traditionally was in the comics namely a hot-tempered young punk with angst issues. Alfonso's voice and performance did work with Randy well as Alfonso delivered a suitably emotional performance as it suited Randy on how he can go from a cocky punk to a teen whom is not a bad kid at heart but had some issues to work out. While Randy Robertson was only in a couple of episodes Alfonso did make a fairly memorable performance for Randy and is a good example of the voice work in the show.

In Spectacular Spider Man, while Phil LaMarr voice Robbie Robertson he also voiced Randy Robertson as well. Unlike his 90's counterpart Randy is a lot more mellow as he is one of the jocks who hangs out with Flash Thompson (though is easily the nicest of the jocks, heck he has actually occasionally helped the likes of Peter Parker.) While the idea of Phil LaMarr doing a slightly more mellow version of John Stewart/Green Lantern voice for Randy Robertson might seem a little strange but to be fair Spectacular Spiderman does make it work as while Randy is a bit more mellow he is also a bit bigger as well. But still Phil's performance certainly worked with what the series was going for in Randy's characterization here. However the only problem I have is that while Randy is a recurring character in the series when he is in a episode he seems to normally have only a line or few but I suppose I can't really fault Phil LaMarr here. Overall I liked them both as they both did well for the role in their own way.

Alfonso fits the character from the comic better, but Phil LaMarr was way more likable.

Phil is the man while Alfonso makes Randy sound younger than what he's supposed 2 be.
