Franchise: X-Men

Avalanche is a mutant and recurring antagonist of the X-Men who first appeared in Uncanny X-Men #141 (January 1981). Avalanche's real name is Dominikos Ioannis Petrakis and he was originally from Crete, Greece. A professional mercenary, he first appeared alongside Mystique and the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants in an assassination attempt on Senator Robert Kelly. Even though the attack failed, Avalanche and the Brotherhood continued on with other attacks of terrorism for mutantkind. When not with the Brotherhood, his own personal criminal career involved attempting to blackmail California for a large sum of cash or he'll trigger a huge earthquake, but was stopped by the Hulk. Later on, his friend and fellow Brotherhood member Pyro was infected with the Legacy Virus and he tried to find a cure for him, but ultimately failed. After M-Day, he was one of the few mutants to keep his powers and he decided to leave the life of crime and open a bar in San Francisco. Avalanche has the ability to to create seismic waves from his hands that affect inorganic material to shatter or crumble.

VC thoughts update

I honestly prefer Rod Coneybeare in here. I really like his performance a lot. He could be quite funny a lot of times and he really makes Avalanche a fun thug.

Christopher Gray works perfectly for Evolution Avalanche. He sounds pretty nice and earnest.

Peter Lurie works in his own way. He has a pretty energetic performance.

James Patrick Stuart has a nice accent, but he's kinda lacking, especially compared to the others.

None of them really do it for me. I'll go with Christopher.

I'll be honest, none of them ae really all that spectacular in the role. The more traditional Avalanche voices all sound pretty generic, though James sounds better than Peter & Rod.

Christopher Gray just doesn't sit right with me. Was never a huge fan of Avalanche being sympathetic. There's also some episodes where he gets too angsty & I can't relate to it. Not one of the stronger performances from X-Men Evolution.

@Shaun Ince Avalache's Romance with Kitty would have Worked Better with a Colossus/Kitty Pairing.

The only two that stand out are James Patrick Stuart and Christopher Gray.

JPS's take is more accurate to the character, but there is not much to go with it.

Christopher plays a younger version, yet gets to show more emotional range. A great example of Evolution's voice work.

I like the Lance Alvers version of avalanche best. But for a version closer to the comic I'll give it to james.

All were good but considering Gray's was a teenage version it's a bit harder to compare

Christopher Gray had more range for the role. From his more menacing moments, to comical moments, to even sympathetic moments.
James Patrick Steward is alright but still sounds like a thug but he adds an accent.
Other two aren't bad but not very rememberable

@Music Meister

No offense, but considering Avalanche in the comics IS a thug, I'm not sure saying JPS's version sounds like one is a strike in this case.

@Anicomicgeek Maybe but it's not rememberable besides from an accent

@Music Meister

Considering Stuart's in the lead, many people, myself included, don't agree with you about that.

Anyone else find it funny that there are two Patrick Stewarts involved with X-Men franchise?
said at 4:48 AM on Mon Jul 23 2012
@Punisher I used to think James Patrick Stewart was Patrick Stewart's full name but yeah it's hilarious.

I'm gonna go with James Patrick Stuart, though Peter Lurie was good, too. Christopher Gray was also good, but the others were closer to the comics Avalanche.

@Anicomicgeek Since I always felt Avalanche in the comics was on the boring side, I considered Lance Alvers an improvement. But that's just me.
