Wonder Woman Wonder Woman


Comparison of the voice actors who have been the voice of Hades with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Wonder Woman

Hades is DC Comic's take on the Greek Mythology God Hades but his comic book debut (well for DC Comics) was in Wonder Woman #1 in February of 1987. Hades' depiction in DC Comics is not all that different from how he was in Greek Mythology as the Olympian God that is the ruler of the Underworld though he has a rather tense relationship with the Themysciran Amazons such as Wonder Woman to put it mildly. While Hades is normally depicted as a Villain he has had his share of troubles with other villains such as Darkseid and his nephew Ares. Hades was originally depicted as an antagonist but not evil namely as a very harsh but just ruler of the dead however over in recent years he is generally depicted as someone much more flat out evil.

Today on the Wonder Woman VC section we take a look at DC Comics' depiction of the Greek God himself... HADES! Lets begin shall we?

John Rhys Davies- I admit I am a bit surprised that John's voice for the role is a bit higher than what he normally sounds like (one would think it would be the other way around) but oddly enough I am not bothered by it. John's performance did have a smooth and sinister tone which worked for the role rather well and is another good example of his voice work.

Bob Joles- I was pleasantly surprised here as Bob did a very good impression of John's voice here I mean sure it wasn't a perfect vocal mimicry but it was a very good example nevertheless. Bob's performance had a rather sinister and manipulative feel to it which worked for the role quite well and is a fine example of Bob's work.

Oliver Platt- This movie went with a different depiction of Hades as Manipulative and Sinister but also fairly camp in which Oliver's performance suited that rather well. Oliver's performance had a good mix of arrogance and contempt which does suit the role very well and is a good example of the voice work in the movie.

Overall I am not quite sure who to go with here as all of these guys did very well in their own way.
