Captain Awesome and his awesome signature — awesome!

After a long legal battle, Douglas Allen Smith, Jr., an out-of-work carpenter, has won the right to change his name to Captain Awesome, in homage to a character on NBC's Chuck. Mr Awesome has the world's most awesome signature, too.

His original petition was delayed because the first judge he faced "questioned his seriousness." But Mr. Awesome would not be deterred. Mr. Awesome hit the books at the University of Oregon Law School library to study up on name change precedents, and when Mr. Awesome came to court a second time, the Judge was named Douglas Mitchell. Douglas helped a fellow Douglas out. I know. I'm tearing up, too.
