I have to ask, who is this guy and what's the source on him being Absorbing Man?

The name David Hope is in the credits for MUA2, but any attempt to find an actor by that name leads me to David Kaye(His real last name is Hope).

That's an interesting perspective. Maybe he was credited for one role by one name and another role by another.

The other case (Emerson Franklin) is actually quite similar from what I've looked up. If videos such as this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HdSn6prB9k and media such as this https://www.facebook.com/naacpimageaward/posts/236523629754652 are to be taken at face value than Emerson Franklin Brooks is Emerson Brooks' full name. Likewise, he could have been credited by one name for one role and differently for another.

Of course, with two distinct characters waiting in the wings just as distinctively played by DiMaggio and LaMarr (the former received backup from who else but "The Juggernaut, B***h") and otherwise MIA I suppose those before us couldn't help but prioritize the recognition of their absence before considering duplicate credits. Did anyone even know that much about either Kaye or Brooks back then?

Other than that, the alias assignment to the Man of Absorbing and the Man of Ape is just a 50/50 split.

@rosebr10 I would question the methodology of someone splitting the aliases between two particular roles when there are several other actors still left with no part assigned.

Also worth noting is the total absence of Robin Atkin Downes, the alleged voice of Cable.

Like I said, it was the two who stood out the most. People like Downes can only get lost in the fog (and that's only assuming that assumption is correct).

Anyway from having since looked at two credit sets I actually done goofed: DiMaggio was credited in at least the Xbox 360 Version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OINgNwGJx8#t=5m29s

Other exclusives from there include Emerson Brooks [Emerson Franklin existed by itself in the other version I found below], Keith Ferguson, Stan Lee, Jameelah McMillan and Brian Mulholland

The Wii (?) version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fTWP6PBcsI#t=5m12s, meanwhile, only has one exclusive name: Adam Bobrow, aka I Can't Believe It's Not Yuri.
