EDITOR'S OPINIONGrowing up in the 80s it would be easy for me to vote for the originals on a lot of these voice compares but in all honesty I truly try to give everyone a fair chance and listen for what I think the character should sound like. Almost like if you were reading a comic book or some other book that the character appeared in what would they sound like in your head. That being said this is definitely a case where I think the original is the best. I realize Michael Bell was basically just using his regular voice but his voice has become iconic and it works more for Duke than it has on any other character he has used it for. Now I must admit that Blum and Abbey did a great job with the character and I have nothing bad to say about them. Payne on the other hand was just outright terrible with this role.
So, here you have it: 1. Michael Bell 2. Gregory Abbey 3. Steve Blum 4. Andrew Paull 5. Roger Craig Smith 6. John Payne
