EDITOR'S OPINION

Alright folks in this Mighty Thor VC this one is for Thor's original love interest, the mortal nurse... JANE FOSTER! Jane like other Thor characters made her VA debut in the Marvel Super Heroes series from the 1960's in which she was voiced by Peg Dixon (whom pretty much voiced every other female character in that show). While Peg doesn't have the best vocal range (for starters even by this site its not too hard to tell that Jane and Pepper Potts have the same VA on that show) but to be fair Peg's Jane Foster voice does sound somewhat different. However Peg's performance for the role is not bad though as it does get the job done in being somewhat suitable for Jane Foster.

A little over 4 decades later Jane actually gets a Voice Acted appearance in the 2010 Avengers series where she is voiced by Kari Wahlgren and I must say she was a rather natural choice for the role. Kari had a nice moderate toned voice which was suitable for the role and Kari's performance genuinely fitted Jane's kind but strong-mannered nature quite well. While Jane Foster may have only appeared in a few episodes of the 2010 Avengers series this performance is a fine example of Kari's work and a good example of the voice work in the 2010 Avengers series. Overall while Peg Dixon wasn't bad in the role I am going with Kari Wahlgren this time around.

Elizabeth Maxwell gets to stretch out from FUNi dubs and does an admirable job as Jane Foster, she's quite entertaining in the role.

Kari Wahlgren's more down to Earth portrayal of the character also moreorless does the job.

Cool to see Erica Lindbeck in a Western produced cartoon and she does well but does sound a bit young.

Peg Dixon is incredibly generic.

Overall my vote's going to Kari.

Elizabeth Maxwell is my favorite here. Yeah, I may not be big on scientist Jane Foster, but Elizabeth makes it fun.

Kari Wahlgren is pretty good for the standard version. She has a very nice friendly sound to her voice and a very warm attitude.

Vita Linder is pretty good, but not as good as some of her other roles unfortunately.

Erica Lindbeck is also good, but focused too much on the scientist side.

Erica has a more scientist vibe in her voice than Elizabeth Maxwell but I am still against Jane Foster being a scientist.

@EPA Deane No. My vote is staying with Kari Wahlgren. I still think Kari's take is much stronger in comparison to all the others.

It's A Tough Call between Kari Wahlgren and Elizabeth Maxwell, but I'm leaning towards Wahlgren's Jane Foster performance since it feels more Down To Earth and Personable.

From What I've heard of Erica Lindbeck's Version she sounds Fine, though perhaps a little too Young? She has Potential to Improve in the part

Vita Linder would have been better off just reusing her Pepper Potts Voice.

Future VA Recommendation:

To Go along with the Suggestion of Dan Green as Thor, a more Mature version of Amy Birnbaum's Tea Gardener voice would be a Great fit for Jane Foster.

You know, when EMH got it right, they got it right. And Kari Wahlgren is a shining example of that. It goes beyond being just a generic nurse, there is a real personality here.

I think it's awesome that Elizabeth Maxell is working in LA now. However, I still found Kari the best of the 3, though the others put on appreciable performances as well.

While I'm still against Jane Foster being a scientist instead of a nurse, Elizabeth had a rather enjoyable voice and performance.

I still prefer Kari Wahlgren, she was gentle yet feisty and was just overall enjoyable. She contrasted Rick's Thor nicely.

I wish Natalie Portman was on here, but since she's not, Kari Wahlgren it is. Peg is overused and generic.
