Never Mess with Doctor Doom

Never mess with Doctor Doom,unless you want your homeworld to be destroyed

In the other hand I love that Zombie Doom has not been consumed by the cannibalism,thus remaining the sinister sovereign that he is

Does anyone else read this Doom with James Earl Jones' voice?

hm, I've always imagined Doom speaking in a higher pitched (but still very evil) voice than good old Jones
interesting voice choice though

As opposed to who? I always hear/read Doom with James Earl's voice, with an Eastern European accent and rusty metallic echo.

Alan Rickman. Circa Die Hard.

James Earl Jones, why not? Since everything else about Vader was copied from Doom.

Alan Rickman is good. I also think of Tony Jay and Keith David as worthy of Doom.

Doom, like Alan Oppenheimer's Skeletor, needs that edge of nasal screech when he's screaming his hated arch-enemy's name. Jones and David's booming bass voices are much better suited to Darkseid.

I could also see David Warner. "Understand this as you die, ever pathetic, ever fools!"

Warner as Evil from Time Bandits would be an awesome Doom.

I first caught on to Doom from "Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends," so I always tend to associate -that- voice with the character. Specifically from the episode "The Fantastic Mr. Frump." I couldn't tell you the voice actor's name, but I remember the filter they added to it gave it this mechanical echo which I always thought was really cool.

Paul Frees, in full Ghost Host mode.

I tend to imagine doom speaking like Kevin Michael Richardson, actually. I guess it's the "armored figure" thing.

I can't say just what ACTOR would be perfect for Doom's voice, but I have a fair idea of what he should sound like - deep, slightly grating, with a slight mechanical echo to his tones, the height of arrogance, of course, but with a certain charismatic edge, and a hint of a European accent. Actually, you know who could pull it off? Ian McKellen. Take the voice he did for the Toad in 'Flushed Away', make it a teensy bit higher-pitched, add a bit of a Germanic grate in place of the English accent, and run it through a computer to make it sound like it's echoing from inside Doom's armor. It'd be perfect.

Or a German Brian Blessed. :)

Imagine that, won't you? ^^

I can't, actually, because I don't think I've ever seen anything with him in it. I understand that he's supposed to be a huge ham, but I don't know what he looks or sounds like.

He originally was meant to be playing Odin in the upcoming film of Thor, but they cast Antony Hopkins instead.

If anyone voices Doom, it should be Clancy Brown.

Been a while since I've seen anything with him in it. I know he can sound very raspy, but if I'm remembering his voice correctly, he's just too American-sounding to play Doom. I mean, of course he could put on an accent, but that sort of thing is tricky.

I tend to always read Doom with Simon Templeman's voice.

Doom is in a class of evil by Doom's self!

So swears Doom!

(No, but seriously, no Jones for me)
