Although initially I created him as a throwaway contestant in a silly online "art fight" the concept really grew on me. Especially the idea of some mega-powerful being just being a total goofball, similar to Deadpool.
I entered him in two contests - the first was 2 Dollar Fighter, and the second was Angel Crushers Fighting League.
