Well folks this is probably one of the larger X-Men VCs in a while and this time its for Magneto's daughter... THE SCARLET WITCH! Since this is a rather large VC I shall make this fairly short and to be honest I am not entirely sure who to pick here to be honest. While some of these ladies have voiced the role more often than others all of these ladies have done well with the role whether its the ones with an accent or without they have all done well.

I'll give my vote to Susan Roman. Such a sweet, soothing voice. Kelly, Jennifer, Laura and Kate are also great.

"All We'll ever need is each other. Absolutely, that's true, my dear brother. But if you'd stop being so cynical for one second and take this chance with me...We might finally find ourselves a place where we belong. With the Avengers."

The Scarlet Witch is probably one of My Favourite Marvel Characters, with a Compelling Backstory and the Source of Some Great Character Dynamics. I'm Definitely to see what happens to her Character in the Future Avengers Films.

Here are My Top 5 Favourite Scarlet Witch voices:

5. Vita Linder/ Stavroula Logothettis
4. Susan Roman
3. Kelly Sheridan
2. Kate Higgins/Laura Bailey
1. Jennifer Hale

Future VA Suggestions:

Ash Sroka would be Phenomenal as The Scarlet Witch. If she added a more Regal and Elegant Tone to her Tali'Zorah voice, she would be Perfect in this Role.

Meaghan Jette Martin would also be solid as Wanda, provided she used a more Mature and Womanly version of her Namine voice.

I also Recommend Bonnie Wright, Jessica Boone, Allegra Clark and Keira Khightley

VC thoughts update

Susan Roman sounds exactly like I imagine Scarlet Witch to sound like. She has a really sweet voice, a neat slight accent and her delivery is solid.

Kate Higgins is also pretty good. She also has a slight accent, a soothing voice and some excellent delivery. Plus, I liked her chemistry with Liam O'Brien's Nightcrawler.

The Marvel Super Heroes cartoon performances could range from surprisingly good to extremely corny yet charming or totally unfitting. Vita Linder's Scarlet Witch falls under the surprisingly good category. I feel her take does hold up quite nicely.

Jennifer Darling has a pretty nice accent and I really love her voice and seductiveness.

Kelly Sheridan does fit the Evolution version perfectly. Scarlet Witch as a Goth chick does work surprisingly well, actually.

I also enjoyed Jennifer Hale, Tara Strong and Laura Bailey in the role.

Katherine Moffat and Stavroula Logothettis have some exaggerated accents and some pretty wonky deliveries.

U know what as much flask as we (me included) give flak on how avengers assemble tries to tie in everything MCU. I am surprised they hadnt adapted Scarlet With. yes it would be based on Elizabeth Olsen`s version but it would have been interesting to see none the less

I'm pretty sure they try not to use Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver unless they absolutely have to since there's a rights dispute for the films between them and Fox. Since they're mutants but also connected to the Avengers. That's why Quicksilver's in both the MCU and the X-Men CU.

Kate did a great job with that version's personality and making her sound unique to an extent. I give her first place.

Kelly did an amazing job with the Evolution version of SW. I'll give her second.

I've gotta say that I really like Kelly Sheridan the most in the role. I find the X-Men Evolution's Gothic approach to the design a really neat and novel idea. Scarlet Witch was one of the few times Kelly got to voice a villain (an anti-villain) but still an antagonist nonetheless. One of the more tragic characters in the show, one who has some of the most unstable abilities and a really depressing backstory. I found her characterization rather compelling as was Kelly's performance. It was cool that in AOU they had been inspired by the Evolution version that is awesome in my books. I'd love for Kelly to reprise and get to do the accent some day.

Laura Bailey would be my second favourite, I think she might be the closest sounding to the classic traditional incarnation and for the most part she's pretty good. She sometimes sounds like Karen Strassman at times.

Susan Roman kinda sounds like an older version of Kelly's Scarlet Witch which is cool.

Peg Dixon/Vita Linder actually has a nice sound to her voice and fits the character nicely.

Jennifer Hale sounds a bit too posh sounding but I still really dig her voice for the character.

Kate Higgins is a bit too light sounding but I think her performance is quite good too.

Tara Strong works for the SHSS version of Scarlet Witch, though maybe she could work for the traditional version?

Stavroula Logothettis is decent for the UTS series though the accent sounds a bit wonky to me.

Katherine Moffat sounds infinitely better than Jennifer Darling in just about every way IMO.

Voting for Kelly Sheridan.

BONUS: My ideal voice for Wanda has to be Veronica Taylor. In the Viz dub of Sailor Moon she voiced a character of the week who was a Russian figure skater, that voice, that accent, everything there in my mind clicks as Scarlet Witch to me, if she ever voiced her I would totally vote for her in a heartbeat.

Looking through thoroughly, I feel that Jennifer Hale is my new favourite for Scarlet Witch. Though Laura Bailey is a close 2nd.

Peg Dixon's Scarlet Witch is probably my favourite performance from the '66 cartoon. Could have sounded a little younger, but otherwise a great performance.

Of the 90s actresses, I think Susan Roman gave the strongest performance.

Tara works fine as the SHS version. Kelly was excellent in in Evolution too.

I know that Kate's performance is the most popular, but I think it's overrated. I just don't think the high voice works for the character. I think her Subaru Kujo voice would have suited better.

My problem with Higgins is that she sounds too high-pitched, whilst Laura pulls off a good believable take whilst sounding threatening too.
Kate you're awesome, but Laura takes it here!
said at 9:59 AM on Wed Dec 11 2013

That could be from wherever that got the clip from, seeing as, IIRC, she wasn't as high pitched on the show nor on the clip for Mark Hildreth for the Quicksilver VC.

@Anicomicgeek Oh, right thanks. I was going to point out that I hadn't watched the show so I guess I'm out of line here lol!
said at 2:13 PM on Thu Dec 12 2013

From what I remember, Kate's Scarlet Witch sounded closer in pitch to her Sakura, which isn't that high-pitched, IMO.
said at 5:16 PM on Thu Dec 12 2013
@TheVengeanceKnight It was deeper than that, at least by the end of the series. I never really watch her first episode that much so she could have been higher at the start for all I know.

Gonna change to Kate. Neither Magneto or Quicksilver have ever with an accent so why should Scarlet Witch. Jennifer and Laura do pretty good accents though.
said at 9:50 AM on Sat Dec 7 2013
@pete Though Laura needs more practice.
said at 9:50 AM on Sat Dec 7 2013
@pete Whether Magneto had one or not doesn't really affect Wanda or Pietro, he didn't raise them and they only found out he was their father and vice versa when the twins were in their twenties. Though the Pietro argument still works.

Laura was a great choice, she goes in and out of her accent but I'd blame the material more.
said at 6:25 PM on Mon Nov 25 2013
Susan Roman, Kelly Sheridan, Jennifer Hale, and Kate Higgins are the only ones I like here. Susan sounds too old, and Kelly delivers a great performance as a rebellious version of Wanda, but it isn't exactly the most fitting. I originally voted for Jennifer Hale, but she sounds too snobbish so I'm changing to Kate Higgins, who sounded a tad bit too young but really delivered a great performance and sounds the most like Wanda who could redeem herself and join the Avengers. Jennifer Hale is perfect for the Ultimate Marvel version of Scarlet Witch, though.
said at 9:44 AM on Sat Dec 7 2013
@chaosincarnate I think Kate's version is pretty young actually. Early 20's I think. Actually I think there were plans for her to reprise the role in EMH before it was cancellled. She was shown on a picture along with pictures other characters from Wolverine and the X-Men of people who could help with the Skrull Invasion.
said at 2:35 PM on Sat Dec 7 2013
@pete That awesome image was actually fake.

Who better to voice Scarlet than our very own 'Queen of the Redheads?'

(But in all seriousness I much prefer Hale as Scarlet than Grey)

This VC is almost ridiculous. I really don't think any of these performances are all that. I guess I'll go with Higgins, but really she's nothing special.

Come ON guys! Kate's Scarlett isn't anyting like it was supposed to be! I like her and all for sure but it feels like in all the X-men compares everyone is bias and just likes Wolverine an the X-men so thy vote for those voices

@ChloeKitten Hit the nail in the head right there. Same goes for Spectacular Spider-Man and some other grimdark grown-up shows I can't think of right now.

@ChloeKitten No need to get angry about it and throw out accusations just because you disagree with the majority vote.
said at 7:24 AM on Tue Jan 22 2013

No, it doesn't--on either show. Both shows has pretty good voice acting, unless some of their predecessors. People like good acting; that's why the DCAU, Young JUstice, Spectacular, and WatXM are getting the votes: because they have it.
said at 7:28 AM on Tue Jan 22 2013

Probably because Wolveine and the X-Men has pretty good voice acting.

@coolgeek176 I'm sure she means what the character is like in the comics, but I wouldn't know anything about that; what might work in comics doesn't exactly work in cartoons.

@CatsTuxedo For the most part, it does, in my opinion.
said at 9:09 PM on Mon Feb 4 2013

And I'd hardly consider Superman TAS, JL/JLU, Spectacular Spider-Man, Avengers EMH and Green Lantern TAS "grimdark". Intelligent and mature, maybe, but not grimdark.
said at 4:48 PM on Mon Mar 25 2013
@coolgeek176 Guys I'm sorry. You know actually Kate's Scarlet Witch is really good. Probably one of my favourites from Wolverine and the Xmen. This was obviously not a good place to put my comment. :) my apologies
said at 4:51 PM on Mon Mar 25 2013
@coolgeek176 Sorry I don't know what I was thinking. Kate's is just fine. That was a weird comment. I think I was just upset that even when it's not the best voice ppl vote for Wolverine and the X-Men. In this case the doesn't apply, I actually really like Kate's version :)

They all do good work but I have to say draw between Kate Higgins (Scarlet Witch was definitely a highlight of the frustrating & often dispapointing W&TXM) and Jennifer Hale (here sounding a bit like Kari Wahlgren's Emma Frost).

Hmm... I like Susan Roman, Kelly Sheridan, Jennifer Hale, and Kate Higgins the best. The rest are quite below average and while I hate to admit it Tara Strong's was pretty bad and she's my NO#1 VA :O as for who I'm voting for well... I think I'll give it to Kate on this one but the other 3 I mentioned are pretty close.

#1 Jennifer Hale
Yes, picking the best one here is something to give a lot of consideration, as each and every single one of these ladies did do quite well, but like I said before, I think my personal favorite is Jennifer. She sounded very seductive yet still managed to maintain her image of a proper lady. Her smooth talking and serious attitude were also quite exceptional! And while it's not the very best VA work in that game or that Jennifer has ever done, it IS certainly one of them in both categories.

#2 Kate Higgins
Her voice wasn't too distinctive from those of either Sakura's or Wave's, but she managed to play the sorcerer's charms nicely and had brought a more soft side to her as well. Most importantly, she had very good chemistry with Tom Kane's Magneto as his very loyal yet tenacious daughter. I do think this was one of Kate's best performances and I do hope the series continues in the future.

#3 Susan Roman
She had many of the same qualities as both Jennifer and Kate, and she was also one of the standout performances in her show as well. The only problem is her age; she emotes properly but her acting isn't quite fluid, and she sounds a bit too old. However, her voice still fits.

#4 Kelly Sheridan
A good attempt at sounding seductive was made, but IMO she wasn't quite as versatile. But once again, her voice was one of the best ones in her show and I could definitely support her voicing the character much longer.

#5 Stavroula Logothettis
The acting is good, but she went overboard trying to sound sexy, playful, and alluring. While the Scarlet Witch can become flirtatious, it's hard to take her seriously when she's like that all the time.

#6 Peg Dixon/Katherine Moffat/Jennifer Darling
These three were okay I guess. Their voices were fine, but the thick accent and the mediocre acting both undermine the quality.

#7 Tara Strong
Tara is one of, if not THE best American voice actress. She definitely deserves her hard-earned Emmy award and Annie nominations! However, when it comes to her performance as the Scarlet Witch, it's unfortunately the opposite.

Don't get me wrong, her voice is fantastic, but it doesn't fit the Scarlet Witch at all; it sounds way too young and childish. While it was in The Super Hero Squad Show, and I can see what they were going for, it just wouldn't work in the same context as the others'.
