We were watching Super Hero Squad, a mini-Marvel Universe cartoon with some subtle humor for the older generation mixed in. (Sample: Thor rescues horse-man by turning him into another Thor. Dialog: “A Norse is a Norse.” “Of course, of course.” But I digress.)
Jack pointed to one of the female characters who was talking and said, “Her voice is very familiar.”
We agreed that it sounded vaguely familiar.
Jack proclaimed, “That’s Azula. From Avatar: The Last Airbender.”
Really? Well, he seemed sure of it. To IMDB we go, and… ummm… wow. Sure enough, Grey DeLisle is the voice of multiple female heroines in Super Hero Squad and the voice of Azula from Avatar. Way to go, Jack. Quite an ear you’ve got there. Either that, or we let you watch waaaay too many episodes of Avatar.
Mind you, Grey DeLisle does a million voices that we’ve all heard over the years, including others Jack would recognize — like Daphne in every modern episode of Scooby Doo, Wubbzy from Wow Wow Wubbzy, Asajj Ventress and Padme from the Clone Wars cartoons, and Betsy from Curious George. Not to mention the video games I would recognizer her from, such as the female bounty hunter voice for Star Wars: The Old Republic and now the female wizard in Diablo 3. But still — there are a lot of famous voiceover voices out there, and Jack picked her out within minutes.
