    Or do they each have a different voice that's not yours?

    Wow, this is a stopper.  Sure, they have voices, but my voice?  I think like a lot of people, my first reaction is to say:  "lemme see.  I never really paid much attention."
    My best guess at this point is - some for sure, but I can't say "all".

    They each have a different voice that is not mine. To make it seem more like a comic clip, or a movie. That way it's more enjoyable.

    I usually can relate to the protagonist or to the character in the story. I like Batman (one of many) and when I read Batman comics, I do see the world of the comic book from his perspective and with his voice.  At the same time I have read more dark comic books like the Joker (for example or Scalped) and then, the perspective changes and so does the voice ...
    I think it also depends on how well the artists can draw the reader into the story. I love the X-Men too and yes, they all have their own personality, character and voice.

    That's just my opinion. : )

    To me they all have there own voice, so when i read them out loud it drives me mad that I can't portray the voice in my head. Like "lburmaster" said its more enjoyable that way smile

    It depends... If I am really interested in the story... I can make the voice for each character. Making it more interesting to read.

    Absolutely not. That would spoil the joy of reading. Some characters I relate to may resonate in my mind as though their actions or words feel - feel - like me, but every character is his or her own persona. If a book doesn't "catch on" quickly, I put it aside; the characters aren't real. Some times a book is "good" but can't get into it so put it away. Even years later I may pick up same book and love it. But the people are always themselves; their voices, etc., theirs. To me the sign of a good writer.
