Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Metallo with sound clips and images.
Metallo is a recurring antagonist of Superman. The best known version of Metallo is John Corben, who first appeared in Action Comics #252 (May 1959). John Corben was a journalist and criminal who while fleeing from the scene of a murder he committed, ended up in an accident which maimed his body beyond repair. A scientist found his body and moved Corben's brain onto a powerful robot body powered by kryptonite. The metallic body gives Corben superhuman strength, durability, speed and reflexes. He can also release the kryptonite energy that powers him into a beam and reconfigure his body into any shape he can think of.
EDITOR'S OPINIONAll of the actors did a great job as Metallo. They all portrayed Metallo as a smug and brutish character just fine. The standouts of Metallo for me were Malcolm McDowell who gives Metallo a more tragic and unhinged edge, Lex Lang, who makes Metallo sound much more threatening than the average supervillain, and Paul Blackthorne, who has Metallo sound affable as well as sinister.
