EDITOR'S OPINIONWolverine has certainly been a standout character to be voiced over the various incarnations. One consistent trait amongst his portrayal is the distinct deep granular gruffness of his voice.
While all versions are represented in a badass tough guy kinda way, I think Cal Dodd's is more of a "I don't give a crap", which makes him my favorite. Also, his anger expressions are more humanized than just the typical animalistic rage. When he's ticked off at Gambit like in the Fox series, its his character just easily being annoyed, rather than him screaming like a Beast.
The X-Men Evolution and most recent Wovlerine and the X-Men have had huge influences from the X-Men live action movies. His bond with Rogue has humanized his animated counterpart in recent years, making him more restrained in his anger and much more caring. His rage is really only triggered when his Weapon X past or Sabretooth come into the picture.
While the voice acting from all has been top notch quality, I think Cal Dodd's represents the Wolverine character the best.
