Jennifer Hale's still the best Black Cat. I'm still amazed at how well she differentiates her Felicia and Black Cat voices.

Tricia Helfer delivers another solid performance from Spectacular, Ali Hillis is quite good too and so is Holly Fields who gets the playful side down well.

Katee Sackhoff is good but doesn't get that much to do, Audrey Wasilewski's a bit old for the role but still manages to do quite well, Grey DeLisle's reusing her Catwoman voice, Tara Strong performance is typical Tara Strong performance and Mel Gorsha sounds so bland.

VC thoughts update

I honestly like Jennifer Hale the most here. I really like how she differentiates her Felicia and Black Cat voices and she does deliver quite a rather strong performance. I really feel she makes both Felicia and Black Cat likeable.

Ali Hillis also sounds pretty good. I love how seductive and playful she sounds.

Morgan Lofting also delivers a good performance. It fits how the Black Cat was designed in that cartoon and she does sound quite sexy and playful.

Tricia Helfer also does a good job, but honestly, even if I'm not big on the SSM designs, I can't help but feel that her voice just doesn't fit that design. I feel she would be more fitting for the solo 1981 Spidey toon's design. But still, she's good and one of the few performances from that show that I honestly liked.

Tara Strong does fit the SHS version pretty well. She does sound quite playful and cute in the role.

I also enjoyed Audrey Wasilewski, Katee Sackhoff and Grey DeLisle (though like Tricia, that voice just doesn't mesh with that design).

Holly Fields and Mel Gorsha don't leave an impression on me.

Mel has a nice playfulness in her voice but sadly some poor direction.

Grey just reusing her Catwoman voice just reminds me that Black Cat is a less interesting Catwoman.

Here are My Top Five Favourite Black Cat voices:

5. Katee Sackhoff
4. Ali Hillis
3. Jennifer Hale ( Video Game Performances> Animated Series Performance)
2. Holly Fields
1. Tricia Helfer

Future VA Suggestions:

I'd Really like to hear Dorothy Fahn voice Black Cat. I imagine a similar voice to her Fujiko Mine would be a solid fit.

I also believe Christina Ricci would be a great fit for Felicia Hardy, using a more Sultry version of her Terra voice.

I also recommend Mara Wilson, Leah Clark, Kerry Williams and Natalie Dormer.

Not really sure what the appeal is with Tricia in this role. In my opinion she sounds too old. It would fit Catwoman from the Batman series just fine. Black Cat, not so much.

I think Tricia Helfer's my favourite, I just love her very sultry sounding voice and she has this fun playfulness and chemistry with Josh Keaton's Spider-Man. Definitely a major standout in Spectacular Spider-Man.

Holly Fields is also really good and gets down her fun playful attitude down nicely, definitely a stand out in the Spider-Man 2 game.

Ali Hillis is very good though I felt her performance in TASM 1 video game was a bit forced, she improved a lot in the sequel game and is of course a natural fit for the role.

I find their is something off about Jennifer Hale's portrayals in the 90's Spider-Man cartoon but I do think she's a solid fit for the role and improved a lot in later reprisals.

Katee Sackhoff is decent as well but I think she's a little bit more one note.

Audrey Wasilewski is a bit too mature but still decent enough.

Morgan Lofting sounds way too mature and old for Black Cat. The delivery of "prrize" is not that great to be honest.

Tara Strong is just her usual self, it doesn't add to or fit the character at all.

Overall I like most of the voices but in the end I'm going with Tricia Helfer.

BONUS: I'd love to see Carrie Kerranen as Black Cat, I could also see Tara Platt, Megan Hollingshead, Kari Wahlgren, Whitney Rodgers, Lisa Ann Beley, Heather Doersken, Carol-Anne Day or Luci Christian being great as Black Cat.

I think I shall talk about my personal top 3 VAs for Black Cat.

Jennifer Hale - Hale is definitely my personal fave. It's more to do with her performance in the PS1 game, where she has a much stronger performance than in the 90s cartoon.

Ali Hillis - I had always thought she would be a great choice for Black Cat. And playing the ASM games, I'm very glad she got to voice her.

Tricia Heifer - I personally think she is a great choice for Cat. She's also one of my favorite VAs from SSM. My only gripe is that she sounds kinda one-note compared to Hale and Hillis However, I definitely think she has the "professional burglar" down very well. And she plays the "charmer" as well as the other two. So yeah, I still think Tricia did very well.

I think it's clear that Jennifer Hale WOULD be the best under better, more modern, less campy direction. But out of the choices, I'd say Tricia Helfer does the best job in practice.

1. Tricia Helfer/Katee Sackhoff
Can we just stop and marvel at the fact that the two best Black Cats are both from Battlestar Galactica? Maybe Marvel should hire Grace Park, Kandyse McClure or Lucy Lawless to be the next voice of Black Cat.

Anyway, both Helfer and Sackhoff nail the character's sexy playfulness while also doing stellar job with more serious moments. Plus, having great chemistry with Josh Keaton (my personal favorite Spider-Man of all-time) is nice bonus.

Giving my vote to Sackhoff, since she deserves to be higher on the poll and I doubt that Helfer is losing her no. 1 spot anytime soon.

2. Holly Fields
She also does good job with Cat's playful side, but since she doesn't have much else to work with besides that, she doesn't stand-out as much as Helfer & Sackhoff.

3. Ali Hillis
While I'm not personally fan of Cat's "hipster-look" in the game, I have to admit that Hillis did really good job with the role. My small problem with the performance is that she seems to be toning herself down too much even though Black Cat is supposed to be someone who enjoys every minute of her life. To be fair, that probably was more a script/direction problem (since TASM franchise was trying to be more "realistic" and "down to earth" take on Spider-Man mythos) than Hillis' herself. Still pretty good performance that deserves no. 3 place.

4. Morgan Lofting
Since voice acting from older shows is usually average at best and hilariously bad at worst, Morgan really suprised me. She captured Black Cat's personality perfectly. Unfortunately her voice sounds way too old for the part and it's really distracting.

5. Audrey Wasilewski
She also sounds too old for the part and since she is interacting with JAT's very youthful sounding Spidey, it gets REALLY distracting. And unlike Morgan, her performance as a whole doesn't stand-out much either so she is definetly the first bad Black Cat voice on this list.

6. Tara Strong
Typical Tara Strong voice. I honestly don't have much else to say. She does have the opposite problem than Morgan & Audrey by making her Black Cat sound too young, but since this is SHSS version of the character, I'm not sure if I can really hold that against her.

7. Jennifer Hale
Get your pitchforks and torches ready, because it is time for another controversial opinion.

I get what they were trying to do. I honestly do. They were clearly trying to make Black Cat talk and sound more like actual cat and, I admit, it isn't a bad idea. Unfortunately Hale makes it sound really forced. Honestly, everytime I listen her voice (without a context) I get this mental image of middle aged cougar making moves on some poor kid during a bar night. That is something I shouldn't be thinking when I hear Black Cat.

It really kills me to say that, since Hale is terrific voice actress and I'm 100% sure that she could knock this role out of the park with better direction.

After comparing Jennifer Hale and Tricia Helfer...I'm going with Jennifer, because after rewatching some episodes with Black Cat/Felicia Hardy in Spider-Man: TAS, she definitely has the personality and flirtatious/promiscuous attitude...especially during her scenes with Spider-Man! and she sounded young. She gets my vote!

Tricia Helfer is my second...well idk, she sounded older than Hale's version of Black Cat, but it's still good in my opinion. Too bad we never saw her civilian identity :(

1-: Holly Fields: The best VA from the Spider-Man 2 game, and that says a hell of a lot. She really captured the playful and seductive aspect of Cat, she's perfect for the character.
2-: Tricia Helfer: A little too old for the character, especially in Spectacular Spider-Man, but her delivery is great and she's very close to Holly Fields as my favorite.
3-: A good take on Black Cat, but it's a little too seductive and she slips into her Liara T'Soni voice occasionally.
4-:Jennifer Hale: One of the better Spider-Man: TAS voice, but she's a bit too pompous for the character.
5-: Audrey W: I would like to see a more high quality clip. Not bad from what I hear of it, but she's a little too raspy.
6-: Morgan Lofting: OK on its own merits, but she honestly sounds a bit evil.
7-: Katee Sackhoff: Way too throaty and trying to play up Cat's seductiveness too much.

For the Hell of it, I'm going to state my peace on all the candidates:

Lofting: Whatever it is, she sounds to old to me, and she plays up the cat thing too much.

Hale: She was good for the animated series, but she sounds too... proper to be an ideal black cat for me. If that's how you heard black cat in the comics more power to you.

Fields: I liked her role in the game, and she acted well in it, no major complaints.

Wasilewski: She's fine, but underwhelming, honestly we need to get a better clip added there for me to fully decide.

Heifer: I like her, her performance was fairly natural and not at all forced like other cats, she's not everyone's definition of sexy, but she works be me.

Sackhoff: She's good too, I wish her voice was a bit higher but that's a minor complaint.

Hillis: Okay really, I don't get why so many people in the comments say she's the best voice here. I mean she's okay, but her performance is so FORCED. There is no natural vibe to the performance at all. Her acting is fine but she's trying way too hard. IMO.

So overall I'd go with either Fields or Heifer on this one with Sackhoff as a very close second.

1. Ali Hills- A good seductive voice, it sounds strong yet could seduce someone into doing something. A good example of voice work in the game.

2. Jennifer Hale- It's strong and seductive but at times the seductive side sounds forced but not distractingly forced. It's not the best of Hale's performances but it's a pretty example.

3. Audrey Wasilewski- it's a little more cute then sexy but does fit for a more playfully seductive which is nice to hear.

4. Holly Fields- well her role in the game was to seduce Spiderman and she does well. Granted she doesn't have the strength in her voice to show someone who could hold her own but is pretty good.

5. Katee Sackhoff- she played Cat a little differently but it's alright. Admittedly I couldn't get through the game to hear a lot of her performance but she did give off a slight seductive side.

6. Tricia Helfer- pretty generic, I don't see all the hype for her performance.

7. Morgan Lofting- Shes trying too hard plus her trying to do the 'purr' sounds really awkward.

@Anicomicgeek Sticking with Sackhoff, but Ali Hillis was also good.

Gonna change my vote back to Tricia Helfer. She was indeed better as Black Cat.

Hale is horrible! Black Cat should sounds sexy and playful, not like old hag

I think Tricia Helfer brought out the best of Black Cat. Hopefully the Ultimate version will get an equally awesome voice.

Once again, another hyped up biased decision because of Spectacular's STORYLINE, rather than the voices.

Jennifer Hale for me, always. Tricia Helfer's voice doesn't spells danger. It spells 'jailbait playtime.'

@OminousFlare i'm with you on this one. Hale brought out the Catwoman characteristics that Black Cat is known for. to be honest, I think due to the age of most of the characters in Spectacular, it didn't allow much range in terms of character because they simply hadn't matured yet.
plus the tone in Spectacular always felt much more kid-oriented that TAS.

Considering all the suggestive innuendo Black Cat mentions in Spectacular, I'd disagree.

@OminousFlare And nostalgia doesn't play a factor in YOUR biases?
Also I take it you didn't hear Tricia's voice in Opening Night when she was pissed at Spidey for changing her fathers mind? That didn't sound like "jailbait", Tricia Helfer has more range than most would give her credit for.

Personally I thought Hale's voice for BC sounded too arrogant and I found myself offput by it.

@Nygma All spectacular fans overate the VA'S for it some of them were great, some average and some sucked. Hale's is without a question the best and is the one most would hear in the comics.

@Nygma I'm with you on this. Hale was great as Felicia but her Black Cat was really unlikable and forced when it cane to sexyness. Tricia Helfer and Holly Fields had better voices byfar.

@Nygma An argument based on ONE occurrence where Helfer's voice had variety for ONCE. Great comeback.

Erm, arrogant? I think it would be more appropriate to say that the voice has a femme fatale ego to it, which is just the way the Black Cat's supposed to be. The Black Cat in the comics is a classy lady bent on stealing the hearts of men. She's mysterious, intriguing, while Helfer's portrayal made her out to be an adventurous, over-trying wild cat. Wild is good, but too conspicuous and daring to be compared to the comic version of the cat, which Hale's naughty voice befits more in TAS.

@D.A.V.E.: Unfortunately, we're referring to the voice here, not the script. If we're talking about script, CDB would've totally lost to Josh Keaton, but I digress.

Spectacular really did have good work voice and casting, unlike some of TAS's casting. Granted Hale was one of the better ones, but there's a

@pete Unlike TAS, which had quite a few poor casting choices that sucked, most of the Sepctauclar cast was pretty good.

Can't believe I left part of that unfinished. Anyway, I meant to say, "Granted Hale was one of the better ones, but there's a a lot of casting that was bad." And BTW, how does Helfer spell "jailbait playtime"? Becuase, honeslt, I don't hear it.

@OminousFlare @pete The SSM fans are entitled to their opinions, and you're entitled to yours. So I suggest you stop whining and get over it.

@coolgeek176 Sucked is an overstatement so I'll stop saying that but I'll out in this way.

Favorites(character wise). Spidey, Flash, Vulture, Electro, Sandman, Rhino, Green Goblin, Tombstone, Hammerhead

Least Favorites. The females all sounded too sweet(Sally aside) and that was a bit annoying. In Marshall's case she doesn't sound like a lot of fun like MJ was at that point and the voice bores me.

Any left out I'm neutral towards but I'm also going to add that Helfer was the only female voice I liked.
