Alright folks here is a rather large VC for this Icy Cool fellow whom is one of the original members of the X-Men. Though due to how large this VC is I shall keep this review fairly short. The guys whom have played Ice Man over the years are for the most part pretty good though I think I liked Darren Scott and James Arnold Taylor the most here (though like I said most of these guys did well with what each depictions were going with). However I think the weakest one is probably Tom Harvey though, I suppose its not really bad by its own merits but it is a rather odd choice of voice for the role. But still most of these guys did very well for this role here.

I prefer Jason as Iceman because he sounds calm and cool at the same time.

James is 2nd while Yuri is 3rd.

Daran is pretty good as is Denis.

Shawn was good in the live action movies but not so much voice acting.

Antony, Cal and Chris are all average.

Adam is just bland & forgettable.

Frank was ok but he sounds too much like his Fred.

Andrew is pretty whiney and annoying in my opinion.

Paul isn't Iceman at all.

For older Iceman, I like James Marsden and Dennis Akiyama.

For younger Iceman, JAT for me. Yuri's is good too, but sounds a little too young.

Rio and Cox are decent, really they need better material

Since some actors are doing younger Bobby, and others are doing the grown up and slightly more mature version, I'll say I like JAT the most for young Bobby, while Darren Scott and James Marsden are tied for my favorite older Iceman.

Its "cool" to hear Jason Marsden as a Marvel character.

I'm going with Yuri Lowenthal. He is easily the best in my opinion.

Why didn't Yuri reprise Iceman in X-men Destiny since he was already in the game?
said at 2:29 AM on Fri Oct 14 2011
Going with Yuri Lowenthal for Iceman, though Shawn Ashmore, Darren Scott, James Arnold Taylor, and Jason Marsden are good, too.

Gotta go James

@SalaComMander JAT is of course another one of the best VAs ever and one of my personal favorites, but there's not much to say about his performance since it was only a few lines.

Only in this voice compare. He has tons of clips between X-Men Legends II and Marvel Ultimate Alliance

yuri???!!!! over welker? no way!

@dorianstark Frank is (was?) indeed a voice acting legend, but unfortunately he was quite miscast here. More importantly, Wolverine and the X-Men arguably has the best voice acting out of all the Marvel animated series.

@pokemastanumba1 *Is. Plus, it was the 80s, and the quality of voice acting then hasn't exactly aged well.

All of them are pretty darn good but I think James captured the character's essence a bit more than the rest. IMO

A favorite Voice Compare
for 6 members.
Latest Reason:

"Youngest of the original X-Men."
