Man bitten by radioactive Badger, gains powers of awesomeness!

My story is much like any other I suppose...

One day while walking by my local Top Secret testing facility, the string broke on my yo-yo and it rolled under the fence and into an area full of cages. I checked to make sure nobody was looking and snuck through a hole in the fence to retrieve my beloved yo-yo.

I searched and searched to no avail and then... I spotted it lying just inside a large cage with a sign saying "Bernard" and a funny symbol that I didn't recognise but it did have a cool skull on it. Thinking that Bernard wouldn't mind if I just took my yo-yo back I reached in. Before I could react my hand was savaged by what I can only describe as a blue and red Badger of doom. I managed to grab my yo-yo and ran, wrapping my hand in my jacket. I didn't stop running until I reached home.

The next morning I awoke to find that my hand was completely healed except for a cool new blue and red skull shaped scar. I didn't think too much of it and concentrated on restringing my yo-yo. Once I had it restringed I tentatively gave it a test yo. It worked perfectly so I decided to practice a trick I had been working on. To my suprise I did the trick perfectly first time. I tried another trick and another and before long I was knocking out tricks that had never dreamed I would be able to do.

I sat and wondered how I could use my new superpower to fight evil and stand up for justice. I sat late into the night designing a costume to wear. I gave my yo-yo a cool custom paint job. I was ready...

Oh wait, you want to hear about how I started my etsy store. I'm sorry. Well back in 2008...
