Which Superman voice actor do you prefer? Personally, I like Newbern. But that may be because I watched more Justice League than I did STAS.

I too like both Tim Daly and George Newbern. I grew up with the latter, but I still appreciate the skill of the former. I think that they both are different in that they bring different elements to their voice acting that is essential to Superman's character. Tim Daly portrays more of a calm, Midwestern sensibility that is essential to the role of Clark Kent and Superman. He sound like the Kansan farm boy, which Superman after all is. Newbern, however, is able to portray a more assertive, sense of morality and ethics that comes across in his voice, which is also essential to the Superman persona. And although Daly did come first (1996-2000), Newbern did voice him for longer (2001-2006). For me, they are both amazing at portraying Superman and are interchangeable as the voice of the Man of Steel. It just depends on what kind of Superman you want to portray. In my opinion, if you want a Superman that conveys a human element with limitations and at the same time able to project strength, morality, and protective instincts, you go with Daly. But for a more action-oriented, assertive Superman, who looks for justice in the face of any obstacle, you go with Newbern.

Both are really good, but I prefer Daly. Just like I prefer John Glovers Riddler to Wally Wingert, but Wally is growing on me.
