The Collector (sometimes known as Taneleer Tivan) is one of the Elders of the Universe, a group of powerful beings as old as time itself. Not much is known about his origins, only that he is virtually immortal and surprisingly powerful. At the helm of a large spaceship, The Collector travels the cosmos seeking and gathering the rarest, most valuable or otherwise intriquing objects of millions of inhabited worlds.

For The Collector's appearance in the 2015 Guardians of the Galaxy series, Tom Kenny took over the role. Despite the series taking place in continuity with Ultimate Spider-Man/Avengers Assemble/Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H., The Collector underwent a visual and audible change. Visually, the series took cues from Benicio del Toro's performance in the live-action Guardians of the Galaxy film. Tom also puts on...some sort of accent. French-ish, Spanish-ish - a blend of some non-descript European dialects. Despite the difference to the performance, I do like Tom. I don't think we've ever heard him do a role like this before.
I'm honestly not sure who to vote for here, as they're both unique portrayls. It's a tie.
