Tropes associated with Phil Morris:

  • Badass Baritone: He has a pretty deep voice.
  • Black and Nerdy: According Bruce Timm to the commentary for Part 1 of the Justice League episode, "The Savage Time", he was already familiar with Vandal Savage and didn't need to be told anything about him before voicing the character. Similarly, on one of the commentaries for Justice League: The New Frontiernote , Timm mentioned running into Morris several times at the San Diego Comic Con and Morris wasn't there as an official part to help support anything—Morris was there to buy comics and other stuff.

  • Promoted Fanboy: As noted earlier, he's a fan of comics and was already familiar with Vandal Savage before voicing him.
