Voice Compare » Superman » Toyman
Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Toyman with sound clips and images.
Toyman is usually a primarily antagonist of Superman. The better known of Toyman is Winslow Schott, who first appeared in Action Comics #64 (September 1943). Winslow Schott was a toymaker who was fired from the toy company he worked for after Lex Luthor and LexCorp acquired said company. Angry and embittered, he started building dangerous weapons shaped like toys and went on a dangerous campaign to kill Luthor, which brought him into conflict with Superman and was stopped. The second Toyman first appeared in Action Comics #432 (February 1974). A man by the name of Jack Nimball took the name Toyman after Schott apparently retired. Nimball dressed in a yellow jester outfit and like Schott, used toy-based weaponry to commit crimes. His criminal career ended after Schott came out of retirement and murdered Nimball. A more heroic version of Toyman appeared in Superman #177 (February 2002). Hiro Okamura is a child prodigy and mechanical genius from Japan who helps Superman and Batman stop a Kryptonite meteor from destroying Earth.
EDITOR'S OPINIONWhile all the actors did a terrific job portraying Toyman as immature, childish villains, the best for me were Bud Cort and John DiMaggio. They made Toyman sound more creepy and disturbing. The exception is Calvin Tran, who plays the third Toyman. He plays him more as a young, naive genius.
