AKA: Gimp, Idiotic Gimp, Fun-Guy, Fungus Among Us, Eclipse, Fat Louie, Gilbert Sai from Merced, the Barechested Scotsman, the "Paul" Vault, the Ice Machine, Bearded Boy, the Hairy 'FIG, Mr. Castle.
Background (Name): When the Flash was recieving inspiration concerning the MAD FIGS acronym he ran into a temporary
thinking block. The letters MAD FS had already formed themselves, but Paul wasn't yet included [and on top of that "MAD FS"
doesn't make sense, anyways]. Paul really didn't have a nickname that had crystalized. As a somewhat cruel act, the Flash
felt inspired to make the stretch and formally name him The Gimp [the Gimp had unique connotations at this time (see
Neutral Figures of the MAD FIGS)]. Thus the group became MAD FGS.
Historical Note: MAD FGS was the original unanimously approved title [except Paul's approval]. He immediately voiced his dissonance and renamed himself the Incredible Guy [MAD FIGS]. For a short period of time he was taunted for making this change with the name the Incredible Gimp. What is funny about this story is that ever since he decided to alter his first name, he has without question formed and crystalized almost as many MAD FIGS nicknames as all the other MAD FIGS combined.
