Thanks for the compliments, everyone. He is a cutie. I fell in love with him the moment I saw him on the shelter's site. One of these days, when he's less interested in the camera, I'll try to get some of him in action. Whenever he sees me pull out the camera, he drops what he's doing and stares at me, wondering what I'm doing.
As for the name, I'll give you the source. I'm a comic book junkie. He's named after a member of the Newsboy Legion, a group of "kid gang" characters created by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon, who also created Captain America and a busload of other comic characters.
