EDITOR'S OPINIONIt's time for a VC for another one of Spider Man's Rogues Gallery namely Tombstone. Sure when it comes to screen-time in adaptations he is no Venom or Green Goblin and the like but he does often give a menacing presence when he does appear.
In the FOX Kids 90's Spider-Man Animated series while his backstory is fairly different he gets his more traditional role of an enforcer for hire. Voice actor Dorian Harewood voiced Tombstone and I must say he was a genuinely good fit, Dorian was able to do a low gruff voice and his performance certainly fitted Tombstone's vicious manipulative persona.
Tombstone hasn't been voiced by anyone for a while until recently in The Spectacular Spider-Man when he has a villainous but a bit more Lex Luthor-esque role. However Tombstone actually had 2 VAs in this show namely Keith David and Kevin Michael Richardson and to be honest yeah this is kind of like the Despero Voice Compare all over again. However unlike Despero they voiced Tombstone in the same show, Keith David voiced him in his first appearance in "Survival of the Fittest" while Kevin Michael Richardson for the rest of the series. And yeah Keith David was indeed just fine for the role for a low deep smooth though sinister tone though Kevin Michael Richardson is also a fine alternative as well. (And yes this is quite possibly the first time we find out how Kevin Michael Richardson can make a good stand-in for Keith David.)
Overall all 3 of them are great, Keith David was of course a grand fit though Kevin Michael Richardson and Dorian Harewood are very good as well.
(Update: Nolan North voiced Tombstone in Marvel Heroes in which sadly he had very little material to go with but at least his voice was decent enough for the role. So in other words Nolan may be the weakest one here so far but his voice does have potential so he could've been better if he had a lot more material here.)
