EDITOR'S OPINIONThroughout Spidey's animated history, he has retained a consistent personality that mixes a serious maturity with a quick whitted one liner sense of humor. All of the voice actors who have had the opportunity to play Spider-Man have certainly had the ability to pull out both those traits.
I myself actually grew up on the Fox Spider-Man series and watched all seasons over and over again after recording the show on my VCR. So my personal fave is Christopher Daniel Barnes. He showed so much range in the character. While nailing all the jokes (admittedly many were corny, but that's the writing), he also gave Peter Parker so much depth when it came his loved ones like his Uncle Ben and especially when Mary Jane was supposedly lost forever after being sucked into another dimension by the Green Goblin. And even more so when she came back as "Hydro-Girl" and she literally vaporized in from of Peter. Barnes put it all into Spidey.
While I only caught a few eps of Unlimited and the 3D MTV series, I really never got into them. An alternate mutant dimension and a series to keep the live action movies alive weren't very original or inspiring.
Rino Romano did a decent job in Unlimited though his voice sounded the most kiddish and often too much enthusiasm was thrown in making it sound over-acted.
While I'm a huge Neil Patrick Harris fan, I think his performance in the MTV one was okay, if not a little subdued at times. I didn't feel that he put 100% into the character.
Now Josh Keaton, he's definitely stepped up to the plate in Spectacular. Like Barnes, his voice acting comes out naturally, not forced or over the top. He's my second favorite, getting really close to Barnes :)
