5. Scott McNeil

Appeared in: X-Men: Evolution

X-Men: Evolution is one of the most underappreciated adaptations of Marvel's mighty Mutants. I remember seeing the trailers for it when it first came out and being particularly intrigued by Wolverine, who wore an orange version of his famous suit in the series.

He was voiced by veteran actor Scott McNeil, who tried something different with the role because we had a very different Wolverine. This Logan wasn't involved in the infamous love triangle with Jean Grey and Cyclops, and he often let cooler heads prevail a lot more than other versions of the character. He was something of a father figure in the X-Men, coming off as a playfully disapproving dad most of the time.

McNeil definitely captured that well as the character didn't have the same raspy growl to his voice that other iterations had. He played Logan smoother than that, having him come off as a calm but perpetually annoyed member of the team (although he could get angry when he wanted to). This version is a departure from the Wolverine most are used to; there are still recognizable elements there, but it's a bit different. In context, McNeil's voice performance captures that well, making him a much more likable version of the character. However, out of context, it doesn't sound as much like Wolverine as you might think.
