More recently, Comicbook/IronMan has been given rectangular, red outlined bubbles to indicate that his voice is coming through speakers in the armor.

But Speech Bubbles aren't ''only'' generic circles or places to put words; instead, they're {{metafiction}}al constructs that can be [[PaintingTheMedium painted,]] shaped, and written different ways! Superimposed, they can indicate an [[SpeechBubblesInterruption interruption]]; different characters can be given different shapes or colors of Speech Bubbles, making keeping track of which character is speaking easier, as well as how they're feeling. Some villains and monsters like to use black speech balloons and strange colored text.

->''So Deadpool speaks with a yellow outline around his speech balloons? What exactly is that supposed to '''sound''' like? I can just imagine a movie studio trying to cast someone for the role of Deadpool: ''"Must be able to speak English clearly with yellow outline around dialogue. '''Red outline voices need not apply!'''"
