EDITOR'S OPINIONFor the next villain from Teen Titans here is the Brain whom is pretty much a disembodied brain in a robotic device.
In the Teen Titans animated series he was voiced by actor Glenn Shadix (whom also voiced Brain's Lover the Gorilla Monsieur Mallah) in which his voice is basically "Steven Hawking only sinister". While you can tell that the voice modification effects that were used to make Glenn's voice robotic were probably applied pretty thickly it is still very suiting for the Brain's persona.
In Batman Brave and the Bold he was one of the many one-shot villains in the series whom is voiced by VA Dee Bradley Baker. While Dee is by all means a fine actor his work as the Brain here did give me some mixed feelings. While I did like the fact that Brain's voice in this show did have a French accent (as IIRC the Brain was actually a French man before he came well the Brain) but my only problem is that the voice was a bit too high IMO. Though still while Dee's Brain voice did give me mixed feelings his overall performance was just fine though.
Overall I like them both but I am going with Glenn a bit more here.
(Note: Corey voiced Brain in Young Justice while Leif voiced Brain in DC Universe Online. Leif's work is pretty good as a smooth and calculating mastermind with a decent attempt at a French accent. Corey's work on the role is excellent as he sounds the most menacing as an evil robotic manipulator. None of these guys are bad per say but I will clearly go with Corey Burton here.)
