Captain Awesome, formerly known as Douglas Allen Smith Jr., poses for a photo with his identification card in Eugene, Ore. The former Mr. Smith says he changed his name to Captain Awesome last month because he was inspired by the nickname of a character on the NBC television show "Chuck" — Dr. Devon "Captain Awesome" Woodcomb. Awesome says that judge also allowed him to sign his name as a right arrow, a smiley face and a left arrow, shown on his I.D. card.
