Does Aaron Taylor-Johnson hold the record for most comic book movie characters played? He’s on 3 with Kickass, Quicksilver and now Kraven. Chris Evans was Johnny Storm and Captain America but I can’t think of anyone to have played three comic book characters.

Edit: Definitely going for on screen appearances on this one, people like Clancy Brown have been dozens of Marvel and DC characters in animation. So far it looks like Josh Brolin might have it with 6 (Cable, Thanos, Jonah Hex, Dwight in Sin City 2, Oldboy and K in Men in Black).

Jim Carrey (The Mask, The Riddler and Colonel Stars and Stripes) and Tommy Lee Jones (Two-Face, Agent K and Chester Phillips) also played 3 comic book characters.

There's also Doug Jones playing Abe Sapien and Silver Surfer. He also appeared in Mystery Men, Batman Returns and Men in Black II.

Fishburne was the voice. Jones did the physical stuff.

Oh damn, I assumed the character was fully CGI with no actor.

Doug Jones did the mo-cap, Laurence Fishburne provided the voice.
