This is absolutely HIGHlarious!
Oregon man Douglas Allen Smith Jr. has legally changed his name to Captain Awesome!
Captain has said that his name change was influenced by a character on NBC's Chuck, whose name is Devon "Captain Awesome" Woodcomb.
Wow! Last week we found out that Chuck was the most pirated TV show, and now this! What a bizarrely influential TV show!
Here's what Captain Awesome had to say about the character that inspired him:
"I just thought it was really funny that Devon's father always called him Captain Awesome because 'a poor nickname builds good character."
He may have a superhero-like name, but Captain Awesome is actually an unemployed cabinet installer.
Hopefully now that he's got the name, he'll discover the superhero that he's always had inside of him, and he'll get rid of the crime on the dangerous streets of…Oregon.
OR if he's willing to relocate, perhaps he can get in touch with the Seattle Branch of the Rain City Superhero Movement and work with those guys.
Keep us updated, Captain Awesome! We've got high expectations for you!
If you were to give yourself a Superhero name, what would it be?
