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.

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.

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.

Michael Dobson, Stephen Stanton and Fred Tatascoire. Fred and Stanton have the voice but no personality while Michael's got the right personality but a bit light (though I could see Michael going deeper to fit). THeir all good but could have been better.

Gregg is above the other for me just because he sounds more natural but is a little light.

The other ones though are rather lacking. Alan has awkward pacing, Kyle and Unknown are just forgettable and Robert's acting leaves a lot to be admired.

Maurice LaMarche would probably the closest to what I imagine using one of his deeper voices plus adding the "B Word Fat" kind of voice to it.

I forgot to mention Mark and Peter.

Mark is laughable, he voices comes off as silly than anything else.

Peter sounds drunk at times and like a dumb brute other times, doesn't really fit.

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

1: Alan Oppenheimer ( who all so did the voice of "Skeletor" in He-man and the Master's of the Universe. ) among many cartoon voices.

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 !

Changing my vote to Alan Openheimer.
said at 9:15 PM on Thu Jan 10 2013
@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.
said at 9:39 PM on Thu Jan 10 2013
@coolgeek176 Because I changed it again to
Mark Klastorin.
