Thanks to everyone who voted for my caption. I really appreciate it. Perhaps you might be interested as to how I came up with the caption. I am from West Virginia and there was a period of time where there were many claims of seeing some 'creature' kinda like a moth/man combo there. You can see details here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mothman Although I never personally witnessed 'Mothman', I knew of the story, and cape (wing like) on the figure Daniel drew reminded me of it. So immediately the 'man' part of the figure name stuck. As I have experienced many glitches in my professional life, it also was the first word to pop into my mind. Now I wonder if I can turn the GLITCHMAN into an enduring part of engineering lore.... Perhaps Daniel should consider a series featuring the character. Ummmm. I wonder what that would be like :) Maybe....but probably not. Worth a thought, though.

One suggestion, it is missing an icon/symbol for his outfit (ie superman has an "S", and batman has the bat icon). Glitchman should have a "G" or a lighting bolt, since glitches can happen at ligth speed... ;-)
