The "Many faces of The Poet" Avatar Project

Hello all! I've been here 2 years and for all of those two years I have had the same Av (avatar btw): the Hush Riddler!

however, I got persuaded (I'm really easy to persuade actually...thanks anyway Primmaster!) to change my Av. I am attached to the Riddler pic so I'm keeping that (plus it would mean I have to create a new Christmas pic and I don't feel like that!), so I am going to do a two week fun project with my avatar as the focus. I like other characters OTHER than Riddler (GASP!), so I will showcase some of the characters I like!

Day 1: Sherlock Holmes 1/17/2012

    • Status: Elementary!
    • Explanation of choice: Sherlock Holmes has always been a favorite of mine. I started reading Sir Arthur Conan Doyle when I was in 2nd or 3rd Grade (when most kids were still reading 100 pg chapter books or Junior fiction if you are a librarian). Do you know how many strange english words there are in SH for a young reader? a lot! But, I persist and I love Sherlock Holmes! If you look at my page I list my location as Rache, which is the word written in blood in SH's first story (Study in Scarlet). I just love Sherlock Holmes which is why he is my favorite detective!

Day 2: Spock 1/18/2012

  • Status: Fascinating!
  • Explanation of choice: I love Spock! I am a big Star Trek fan. I just love green blooded guy! he is just really enertaining! I also love Leonard Nimoy, so this is also a tribute to him!

Day 3: Tigger! 1/19/2012

  • Status: T-I-double"guh"-errrrr, that spells Tigger!
  • Explanation of choice: this might be a surprise to some, but not to me. Now, the story of why I chose this goes back to when I was in pre-school. A kid asked me what my favorite superhero was (most likely he was expecting "Superman" or "Batman" or someone), but that was not my answer. Now, I was obsessed with Winnie the Pooh, so my answer was, "Tigger!" My companion said that this bouncy character was not a superhero, but I disagreed. I still disagree. I love Tigger and I am proud to show off this love by using him as my third profile picture on this project!

Day 4: John Steed 1/20/2012

  • Status: Mrs. Peel, we're needed!
  • Explanation of choice: I just read the first issue of Steed and Mrs. Peel (check out my review!) and my love of the 60s tv show The Avengers returned. I love the humor and the cleverness of the stories and the jokes. I also love Patrick Macnee, so this profile pic is wonderful to show who I am and what I like!

Day 5: Darkwing Duck 1/21/2012

  • Status: Lets Get Dangerous!
  • Explanation of choice: Darkwing Duck is a favorite of mine. I loved the show (it was very funny) and when I got into comics my first ongoing series was Darkwing Duck, so I have a huge respect to Darkwing Duck!

Day 6: The Flash 1/22/2012

  • Status: The Fastest Man Alive!
  • Explanation of choice: I've started reading the Flash and I am really enjoying myself, so...I guess Flash would be perfect for this project...

Day 7: Bullwinkle 1/23/2012

  • Status: If you can't believe what you read in a comic book, what can you believe? -- Bullwinkle J. Moose (from Rocky and Bullwinkle)
  • Explanation of choice: I am not a child of the 50s or 60s, but I have a deep love of the Show "The Adventure of Rock & Bullwinkle & Friends". This was done by the same guy (Jay Ward) who create George of the Jungle. I love June Foray who voice Rocky the flying squirrel on that show (in addition to her roles as Granny from Sylvester and Tweety, cindy loo who from How the Grinch Stole Christmas (animated) and so many famous others). As a tribute to that show, I created a Blog called "The Ponsonby Britt Report" (named after the show's literally fictional executive producer) where I review books and movies. So, that is why I chose Bullwinkle to be my av (I would have done Boris Badenov, but couldn't find a good picture...)

Day 8: Nightwing 1/24/2012

Status: oh, boy! a carny!

Explanation of choice: I have like Dick Grayson for a while now, but after starting to read the new 52 Nightwing series I really do like Master Grayson. He is just really a lot of fun!

Day 9: Alfred Hitchcock 1/25/2012

  • Status: Oh, look over there! its a Macguffin!
  • Explanation of choice: I love Afred Hitchcock. He is a wonderful Director who created some of my favorite movies of all time! so he totally diserves to be part of this project!

Day 10: Scooby Doo 1/26/2012

  • Status: Rooby, rooby, roo!
  • Explanation of choice: I love Scooby Doo. Maybe its the humor or maybe it is the mystery element of the show, but I just love Scooby Doo.

Day 11: Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka 1/27/2012

  • Status: "We are the Music Makers. We are the dreamers of dreams!" -- Willy Wonka
  • Explanation of choice: Roald Dahl is a wonderful writer. I have enjoyed all of his books espeshelly Willy Wonka. While I realize the main focus of the movie was on charlie Bucket, I just love Willy Wonka. He is whimsical and fun--just like what I want to be like. Also I once played Willy Wonka in a musical version of the book, so I have a definite love for Wonka!

Day 12: Terry McGinnis 1/28/2012

  • Status: Here's to the future...
  • Explanation of choice: I really enjoyed the animated tv show Batman Beyond. I think it is a cleaver concept. I have been reading the new comics as they come out and I look forward to reading more of this universe. With all respect to Bruce and the other Batmen, I think I do like terry better...He's just an amusing character.

Day 13: "The Riddler" by Spacey 1/29/2012

  • Status:Today's av was made by the wonderful and talented CV user known as Spacey!
  • Explanation of choice: several months ago, I was sent a pm by the very kind user named Spacey. She directed me to a CV blog where she had posted three pictures she had made for three different users. One of those pictures was a watercolor of Riddler and that picture was for...me! I am really humbled by this gift even now. So I thought it would be appropriate to have this as my av!

Day 14: "The Parade of Popular Poets" by The Poet 1/30/2012

  • Status: Check out my poet av which hosts: Oscar Wilde, Robert Frost, Walt Whiteman, Shakespeare, Dr. Seuss, Poe, Emily Dickinson, and Maya Angelou!
  • Explanation of choice: I do like poets, so I thought I would set my av as one of my favorites, but as I couldn't decide I made a collage of poets.

Bonus

by Decoy Elite

I need one last av while I wait for the final vote of which av I will choose, so I'm going to go with Decoy Elite's Kirby Riddler!

Hope you find this project interesting and informative!

No, I will sew it into your profile.

Also I'm surprised you were convinced to change you AV. I thought you were some new guy with a similar name at first. XP

Well, I always do like to do new things (if they are pleasent and exceptable to me of course), so thought I would try out changing my pic...but not forever because I like the Riddler and I'll stay with that for a while...

yeah, I suspect most people are thinking the same thing as they are used to the Riddler as much as I am, but i do love to see all these shocked responses! I've got 2 people trying to get me to change back, one neutral part, and whatever you are :P

Maybe you'll use it as an ongoing a public list of past avatars come and gone and why you chose them. Not 100% sure what you have planned but it seems cool so far.

Posted by The Poet

@SpidermanWins: I'm not 100% sure myself, which is why I am really interested in what this will accomplish and such...

The classics always going to be the best choices, Detective. I have some options for you.

Or maybe something more artistic, this is a good example.

How about a avatar of the Antichrist? Frank Gorshin FTW!

Or maybe just your classic avatar with some slight modifications.

Life or death make your choice, Detective... By the way, What's the difference between an elephant and the flea?

I do like the second one on the top...of course I just like the Hush picture I normally have (as I do have a similar hat made and such...)

hmm...how about this answer: the elephant can't flee (get it flea? never mind...) but the flea can't elephant :P

I'm playing with several possible canidates...in fact, I am going to extend this for 14 days because I am thinking of so many...

@The Poet: Just thinking.....a dangerous pastime.   What if you kept this going.  Say you do 10.  A nice round number, then hand it off to someone else.  Then they do the same.  You could re-name the blog and so on. 
Posted by The Poet

@Liberty: that would be interesting... as 14 is my lucky number I'll stop there and then see what I can do.I'm not sure if I want to create a blog/forum titled "the Many faces of Comic Vine Avatar project" or if I want to edit this one and if I really want it to be a blog (and thus be bomb-barded by lots and lots of pms...)

We'll see. Once you get the switch itch it doesn't go away.
