How did you come up with your username and avatar? Was it a random decision? Did it take you hours to decide? Does it hold some significance?

Pooty: From birth I've been called Pooty. The reason: I'm the only child who made my mother "Poot" while giving birth. That's a shitty origin story ain't it? See what I did there?

AGD: They represent that things are not always what they seem. Sometimes you have to look beyond the surface to see what is really going on. also, im heterosexual. but if i meet a gay guy I always ask "Can I get on your back?"

Before the boards were revised I think I made this thread but can't find it. If you can find it post it please.

Fanboyism was the main motivator for the username. Recently saw this Iron Fist: Living Weapon #2 cover while scrolling through Marvel's May solicitations. Couldn't let it go to waste.

TheTrueBarryAllen (TTBA for short) is my tumblr username that I use to run my Flash/DC Comics Blog (811 followers & counting) and I wanted people to be able to find me easily on here too.

As for my Avatar, I love Mirror Master more than anyone else on the Vine ( or so I like to think ) and I couldn't resist this oh so seductive image of him.

My username? I wasn't too bothered and wanted to use my real name. I didn't want to add some numbers at the end of it so I just put numbers into it.

My Avatar? Simple. It looks awesome and Nova is one of my favourite characters.

I was going to go with "smittyjoker" because my nickname is smitty and my favorite comic book character is the Joker, but the username was taken, so I just went with "jokerpoker". As for my avatar, Deathstroke is one of my favorite DC characters, and I try to change my avatar now and again so it's not always the Joker.

marvel_boy2241 Well, first off I'm a boy. then I love marvel but more so than DC. Mix it all together and whadaya got? 22410004521139 was my library card number. So, I shortened it. Hence, 2241.

Now, face-palming is something that I do often when reading ridiculous posts. It seemed appropriate to have a widely known Marvel character doing it because after all, I am The Marvel Boy.

Rouflex? Well back when i was 8 i presented a futurist invention (On paper) for my School Project and than a other 8years later i created a character named Rouflex while i was extremely bored (based on that project), over the years i changed his origins and powers for my appreciation :P. At first, the idea would have killed a human in instants >.>. The name is a mix of two french words. Its represent all that but its also represent the Fictional Universe i made years ago.

As for my avatar, i'm trying to have a permanent/long-running avatar pic but i never found anything that would stay so i think a flag representing my Country would be a great idea. Its not that i like the flag, i personally think the meaning of it is not good enought for our country but its means i want the independance of Québec (Vive le Québec libre).

My current avatar is Levi. I chose it because I recently watched Attack on Titan... and I thought Levi was awesome.

I'm a big fan of the Star Wars: X-wing novel series. My favorite books in the series are the ones by Aaron Allston, most of which prominently feature Wraith Squadron.

I put the X at the beginning in reference to both the X-wing and the X-Men - one of my favorite X-Men books, Rick Remender's Uncanny X-Force, had it's final issue released mere days before I joined Comic Vine.

I use Wedge Antilles as my main avatar because he's been a favorite character of mine ever since I played Rogue Squadron on the N64. The only reason I've kept it for so long is because I can't pick a replacement I like.
