The direction behind Marc Thompson's Maxie just confuses me. He's actually playing a version of the character who is less evil than Maxie's video game counterpart yet he gives a performance which oozes so much arrogance it makes Maxie seem transparently evil. The resemblance to Don Adams also makes him a little hard to take seriously at the same time. A stronger grasp on that incarnation of the character and a toned down voice would have made this performance much better.
Lex Lang's time in the role was short, however he fits the cold scientist angle to a T and it is a far more focused performance. It counterbalances with Archie's loud and rowdy personality as well. The two are supposed to be polar opposites and that really shines through when you compare Lex's Maxie to Jamieson Price's Archie.
I definitely have to go with Lex Lang on this one.
