Voice Compare » X-Men » Blob




Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Blob with sound clips and images.
Blob is a mutant and a recurring antagonist of the X-Men who first appeared in X-Men #3 (January 1964). Blob's real name is Fred J. Dukes and his mutant physiology gives him an obese body with superhuman strength, superhuman endurance and a powerful skin that is difficult to penetrate. He can affect his personal gravity, making him immovable. Dukes was originally a part of a circus sideshow under the moniker 'The Blob' until he was contacted by Professor Xavier, who asks him to join the X-Men. He refuses and he, along with his other circus performers attack the X-Men. They were defeated and Xavier wipes their minds of the incident. Later, sometime after he regains his memories, Blob joins the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants after Magneto offers him membership and while they attack the X-Men, Magneto attacks the X-Men when the other Brotherhood members were in the way. Feeling betrayed by Magneto, Blob leaves the group and begins his own criminal career. After being incarcerated, Mystique frees him and he joins her own reformed Brotherhood of Evil Mutants with the likes of Pyro, Destiny, and Avalanche. Together Blob and the Brotherhood engaged in acts of terrorism for mutant kind, one of them including the assassination attempt of Senator Robert Kelly.

EDITOR'S OPINION

For this X-Men Voice Compare, we look at the recurring X-Men foe, The Blob. This is a huge VC, but I can honestly I can't really choose who did the best job here. They all did fine as their own version of the heavy-set, villainous Blob. Some of my picks are Michael Dobson, Stephen Stanton, and Gregg Berger.

With a name like The Blob you gotta have a voice that sounds massive and I think Stephen Stanton captures that best.

Stephen Stanton has an impressive vocal range between doing voices like Tarkin to Melman and now The Blob. He sounds heavy but at the same time makes him sound somewhat intelligent instead of a complete big fat idiot. Plus I've never heard him ever do a voice like this anywhere else so its really unique for Stanton. He also kinda sounds a bit like Brian Dobson's Thing and Clancy Brown at times.

Gregg Berger is a really close second, he sounds more fat than heavy but I think Gregg's gruff gravelly voice added a lot of personality to the character.

Michael Dobson was excellent as a teenage version of The Blob, he brings a lot of heart to the role and nails the hot tempered troubled youth well. I'm sure he could totally pull off a traditional older version of Blob, he'd just have to make it sound deeper.

Fred Tatasciore is rather typecast as Blob, being the usual go to voice for any big Marvel baddie. He sounds intelligent enough but compared to his Juggernaut and other roles he doesn't sound as unique.

Peter Lurie's voice for Blob sounds a bit put on sounding, it's not terrible but not that great, though I love that line "Ha Ha Very Funny Cupcake!" line lol Who came up with that?

Mark Klastorin sounds a bit inaudible in the clip but he's got a unique sound of voice.

Robert Cait sounds way too light and his delivery is just strange sounding and flat.

Alan Oppenheimer sounds ridiculous and makes him sound way too dumb.

Kyle Hebert and the UVA are way too generic.

My vote goes to Stephen Stanton with Gregg Berger as a close second.

BONUS: I could see Bill Fagerbakke, John DiMaggio, Lex Lang, Clancy Brown, David Kaye, David Boat, Peter New or Rob Mungle being great as The Blob.

Stephen is my pick for the best voice for the Blob.

Robert, Peter & Fred are good.

Michael does his own take and it works.

Gregg & Alan are average.

Kyle & The Unknown Voice Actor sound terrible.

Mark sounds way too stupid.

Going with Gregg Berger. I like how his version of Blob sounds quite intelligent. The accent was quite a nice touch too.

I`m goin` with Mark Klastorin and Gregg Berger because they actually sound kinda Texan and don`t exaggerate the Character`s stupidity as much as most of The Others here do !

@pete If you changed your vote to Alan Openheimer then why does he have no votes?

@coolgeek176 Because unfortunately, once you've made your vote in the actual poll, you can never really change it.
