Born on a planet far away from here, Tim was sent to Earth in a tiny rocket ship by his parents and raised by the Kent family. Today he is a superhero. By day, a mild-mannered English student/secretary and, by night, a sexually glamorous and muscle bound man in cape and tights named Melvis Patterson. (Well, the cape is named Miguel Cervantes. The tights are named Melvis Patterson). Here is my favorite AIM away message (authored by me, Tim West): You have, haven't you? You've been "waiting until you're married" with other men?! Oh God, I think I'm gonna be sick.
