Just look at Jonathan Nolan or Rick Springfield or many more.
    They'd at least have a Romanes accent. It doesn't wear off. You learn Romanes if you are raised with Romanipen, no matter where you were raised. And it sticks, because it's not abandoned. Tradition and language are held on to, even after hundreds of years. I think it's just difficult for them to get those accents down. There likely aren't a lot of voice actors, writers etc. that can give them that voice or perspective. So they just stick with what they know.

I figure he's still got a French accent, but turns it up to eleven when he's on the job, throwing in all the "Zut alors" etc.
    That so makes sense, because he's such a deliberate ham.

    I kinda love villains who seem to love their jobs (and aren't like cannibals or whatever...). Doom goes home to brood on his throne. Red Skull has some other abominable scheme to scheme. And Batroc is probably blowing whatever money he scored in Vegas...

    I think that since there is so much stigma and discrimination in the US when it comes to accents, they use General American in cartoons, films, and video games for a lot of characters that should have accents. Like Professor X should have a NY accent, but they give him a quasi-British accent because he's supposed to be wise. Stan Lee and Jack Kirby had NY accents, but you could hear Stan Lee tone it down sometimes. I think they heard the voices of the characters they created as people around them.

    I would imagine Sue Storm to have a Jaqueline Kennedy accent or perhaps a less nasal Lois Griffin accent.

And Romani who are even in America for a lot of years, even generations have accents. So I'd say they should have accents. I'm not sure what happens at Marvel. What their position on it. But it's a weird Americanization of the twins.
    The actors in the MCU films said they did a Balkan region type accent for Quicksilver/Scarlet Witch and I saw a number of fans and critics complain about them doing bad Russian accents

    Sokovia/Transia are both supposed to be located in South eastern Europe any sort of Balklan - Romanian/Serbian/Bulgarian/Bosnian ect type accent would sound about right.

    Scarlet witch had a similar regional accent in the avengers united they stand cartoon series.

    Mister Sinister has a Victorian London upper class accent.

    High Evolutionary is originally from Manchester so I like to think he has a Mancunian accent despite him having lived in various different places.

    I always imagine Storm to sound Kenyan

    Yeah, in Wanda's solo they confirmed it as Serbian. But also they'd have the Romanes influence. Probably more greatly than the Serbian one.

    The United they Stand accent was not great either...

    The only time in the comics I can think of Wanda's accent being mentioned was in Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes (2004) bu Joe Casey and Scott Kolins. As well as an X-men: First Class back-up strip where according to Jean Wanda had lost her accent but that was sort of a joke strip.

    The United We Stand accent was awful and her actress was Greek

    I feel like Doctor Doom should have an Eastern-European accent, but adaptations always portray him with a booming yet still distinctly American one.

    Writers tend to over do Chamber's accent. A lot the character's dialogue is all "cor blimey guv'nor, bloody sunshine" which sounds like a bad caricature and dated way of speaking for teenager/twenty something Londoner.

    Chamber's accent is probably Estuary English If they want to be more accurate to real life.

    being from the far side of the pond I find on the whole all comics (predominantly from the US) have a shocking time writing English accents. I have lived on and off in England for 35 of my 43 years and I can honestly say I have never heard anyone use the expression cor blimey, and only the rarest of cockneys saying guv'nor. I find the way they write English accents in comics seems far more Australian than English. It is often quite painful reading these accents. Old school Excalibur had some horrendous English terminology that hasn't been used in real life since what feels like the 1860s
