Super voice disguisers?

Oliver queen sometimes used a voice scrambler in Arrow, and Christian Bale went all raspy and scratchy voiced in batman, but traditionally, how have comic book heroes disguised their voice in comics and comic cartoons?

    I think we're supposed to assume that they don't sound exactly the same.  Some heroes the letterer will explicitly give a coloring or lettering or bubble shade to indicate that a voice is different or something, but that's the exception not the rule.  

    Nonetheless, I think we're supposed to assume that Clark Kent's voice sounds nerdier than Supermans, Bruce Wayne sounds more upper class than Batman, and so on.  But it's not typically dwelled upon because it's not an auditory medium.

    Most often, it is implied in the comics that superheroes use their normal voices, though it is hard to tell as the dialogue bubbles don't always reflect the changes in the voices.

    Batman and his allies use deeper and tougher voices for intimidation.
