EDITOR'S OPINION

Quicksilver A.K.A Pietro Maximoff, whether you seen him as a good guy or a bad buy he is the 3rd X-Men for the Voice Compare.

First off we have Paul "Original Leon S. Kennedy" Haddad in the early 90's X-men series. His voice does work for the role and his acting is satisfactory enough but its not one of the best performances in the show.

Next off is Richard Cox as X-Men Evolution's Quicksilver, and this was probably one of Cox's best performances. Quicksilver in XME was very much a young punk and Cox was very fitting for the role but to be fair this version of Pietro did have his fair share of dramatic moments in which Cox was satisfactory on.

And for our most recent Quicksilver is Mark Hildreth in Wolverine and the X-Men and I must say I was quite pleasantly surprised. I admit I haven't had a lot of access to this show and Quicksilver but from what I have seen I did substantially enjoy it.

All the Quicksilvers are good but as for my pick its a tie between Richard Cox and Mark Hildreth with Paul Haddad at a close second.

(Note: Scott Menville voiced Quicksilver in Super Hero Squad Show as Len Carlson voiced Quicksilver in Marvel Super Heroes. The former felt a little strange as I know this is suppose to be a "younger" version of Quicksilver but while not as good as Richard Cox's work as a younger Pietro Scott's work on the role is a decent fit for the SHS version of Quicksilver however its rather average at best. As for Len Carlson I was pleasantly surprised on how his youthful voice and performance was rather fitting for the role and is probably one of the better performances in that show. So in other words I would rank Len with Richard and Mark while I did like Paul a bit more than Scott.)

Ok, reevaluating my list. Moving Mark Hildreth up to second place.

Richard Ian Cox is still my favorite though.

Richard Ian Cox- Definitely the best IMO. His fast-talking and youthful tone works best for Quicksilver.

Mark Hildreth- WatXM has its fair share of good casting moments. But this isn't one of those. To be fair, I think Mark would be better cast as Iceman, with something similar to his Heero Yuy voice.

It's very close between Richard Ian Cox, Mark Hildreth, and Sunhil Malhotra, but I think Sunhil has the edge. The slight accent is a nice touch that suits the character, and while he's a fast talker, there isn't too much emphasis on it.

Mark sounds pretty generic to me. Gotta love Richard's fast-talking. Really fits the character.

Paul and Mark for me. At first I didn't like Sunil but he's growing on me.

@VctrBnsn Who do you picture playing him as an Avenger? I went with Paul as that's the closest that has come so far. Though Richard did that too.

@pete Listening to Mark's take as Cyclops, I'm sure he can play a heroic version of Pietro.

1. Richard Ian Cox- He does really well with Quicksilver's silver tongue and makes him a smartass yet can go menacing but fits for his few 'heroic' moments. The fact he talks fast is really nicely done.

2. Scott Menville/Len Carson- Both of these actors are good but lack something.Both are good for the 'hero' Quicksilver but I have a hard time earing them as the Brotherhood member version. I wish they added the fast talking in some way.

3. Sunil does good with Quicksilver talking fast but my problem is that he sounds generic, nothing rememerable about his voice or his performance (aside from said fast talking)

4. Mark Hildreth- I don't see the love for him as Quicksilver. He sounds like he's alomst the same age as Magento which is...odd. He has the silver tongue but besides that it doesn't feel right for Quicksilver.

5. Paul Haddad- Sounds forced yet generic. Nothing mroe to say.

6. Robert Tinkler- Robert would have been a good choice for Quicksilver but what is with the goofy accent? It soudns werid to hear from Quicksilver. He didn't get enough dialog to show himself mroe but he didn't show any of the chracteristics of QS.

@TheVengeanceKnight I confused WatXM's Magneto with Evolution's version, looking back the age comment is really random. Still, I felt he was generic.

I prefer the hero version of him but none of them do it justice. Len was playing a typical which was ok for a show of that time and Paul sounds like Thor or some other Asgardian. For the villain version Sunhil then Mark, and Richard though he does grow into the hero version by the time the series ends as does the entire Brotherhood. Robert I don't know which version he is.

Sticking with Mark Hildreth, but I do have to get give props to Robert Tinkler for doing an accent since Quicksilver does hail from Europe.

Mark Hildreth did best in my opinion. Not only was he the first Quicksilver I became familiar with, but he was just so suave and smooth, yet silver-tongued and sharp.

#1 Richard Ian Cox
It's very close to a three-way tie here, but with much more consideration, I think that first place has a winner. As usual, I completely agree with Pokejedservo. Despite being much more of a stereotypical carefree teenage male, Quicksilver had a very emotional side to him in Evolution and Richard did deliver on both. But the most important thing he had that the others didn't was with Quicksilver's fast-paced speech. Given the character's main special ability, it suits him very well. I would say that it's both one of the better voices in that show and also one of Richard's better performances overall.

#2 Scott Menville
Though my distaste of The Super Hero Squad Show usually keeps the character's portrayal in that series from standing out in a good way at all in their voice compares, Scott was a very fine choice for Quicksilver here! While it's certainly not distinctive from his Robin voice in the least nor does it retain that much of Quicksilver's virtues from the comics, Scott's voice brings out Quicksilver's personality and does at least stay true to most of the character's main qualities. I would say that it's one of the few voices from that show that would actually still work if The Super Hero Squad Show was part of the main canon or a more serious animated series. Most of all, I think that Scott's voice does actually fit Quicksilver as much as it does Robin.

#3 Mark Hildreth
The voice acting in Wolverine and the X-Men is arguably some of the best ever in a superhero cartoon series, and Mark's performance did help set the bar very high. Again, it definitely gives Quicksilver attitude and his emotional outbursts more life to them. Yes, he DOES sound at least a little too old (sometimes as old as Magneto), but it still fits Quicksilver's appearance in that show.

#4 Paul Haddad
Paul's voice was pretty good in and of itself, but there's more to say about the acting. His was very wooden in its performance and doesn't really give anything special to the character. Not bad, but could have been at least a little better.

Actually the idea of an Ocean/Vancouver VA working in California is not that strange. Ian James Cortlett has worked in California before (he even got to meet Frank Welker while doing some voice acting on Totally Spies). David Kaye still does work in California as well (such as Transformers Animated for example). And Saffron Henderson moved to California and was working there at 2005 (but went back to Canada at about later on 2006). One of the only permanent cases I know is Jason Gray Stanford however he pretty much retired from Voice acting ever since he started to play Lt. Randall Disher in Monk.

The unfortunate truth of the matter is that Canadian voice talent are for now not getting as much as they use to. So its only natural that some of them would try to get work in America, namely in California.

@Pokejedservo Or actually the truth is the have laid down roots longer than many of us realize. Like in Anime, anything as far back as the 80's. The majority of it was done by the Canadian dubbing groups or original animation as well. For example, Care Bears was dubbed using Canadian talent.

Are you completley sure that's Mark Hildreth? I mean, Mark Hildreth is a Ocean group actor and for him to be in a Room with a bunch of californians just does,nt seem normal.

I`m givin` It to Hildreth because His Pietro while not the sharpest tool in the shed has quite a few humorous moments and though more muscular than Pietro`s normally depicted has the arrogance and constant fighting for His Father`s Acceptance down pat.
