- "I hate Nintendo, but I hate Sony because they think Nintendo has no games!"
- ―Alvin-Earthworm's usual hypocritical statement.
Mark Haynes, or should I say Alvin-Earthworm, is a grumpy man who worries about a lot of other things and posts more internet memes than making flash animations. He is known for being the creator of the critically-acclaimed fan-based sprite animation series known as Super Mario Bros. Z, which thanks to his stupidity, ended up being dumped into the toilet pretty quickly by Nintendo.
He is a furry if you don't know, but I'm not gonna talking about that kind of thing so let's move on to the favorite part, shall we?
First of all, Alvin is know to being impulsive and sensitive. He is prone to insults strangers, mocks people's opinions, and generally being a pure egotistical dick on the internet without hesitation, even those who didn't do anything to him. He also tries to be satirical, like joking around with his own creations, which is true, as you can see on one of his Tweet on Twitter.
His opinion on things are also quite pathetic. While he does have some points, others are just petty jabs or memes.
For example, his criticizes Nintendo Switch Parental Controls for letting people who owned Switch (including himself) have children, hates Super Mario Sunshine just because of Pachinko and his opinions on Nintendo Labo is basically a video of the cardboard figure falling down non-stop, (because it's Twitter) which makes it clear that he certainly didn't care about creativity and innovations, and who could forget that he hates youngsters too?
Speaking of creativity, he is too lazy to create something original aside for his trashy anthro characters, which is why he made Super Mario Bros. Z in the first place. Just look at one of his old character of the same name, who is basically Earthworm Jim if he was born in the King of Fighters universe.
He also didn't want people to remake or continue Super Mario Bros. Z because he wanted what Super Mario Bros. Z would be before the revival and thought they would mess up his idea. It was old news and again, it was understandable since most fan remakes and continuations are terrible, but that was very egotistical, we must say.
Then things gets worse when Nintendo took down his Patreon page dedicated to Super Mario Bros. Z because he was literally earning money with stuff that he didn't made (though Nintendo also take down even those that didn't earn money.), he gets increasingly bitter against the company, even though it was his fault that he became an absolute train-wreck we all know for, and all said company does is to protect their copyright.
Alvin is quite over-dramatic due to having a terrible life. He spends most of his time causing drama on the internet. Being suffered from chronic depression, autism and suicidal thoughts, he has the tendency to make suicide jokes about himself. After the incident involving Nintendo, his depressions is getting worse, not even leaving his house for the past four months.
Aside for being a drama queen, he's also a master of one of the worst actions mankind had ever done, hypocrisies. He hates Nintendo and their rabid fans for shutting down his Pateron page and screwing with his YouTube channel, yet he still buys most of their games anyway and hates other companies like Sony for treating Nintendo like crap, making him a Nintendo fanboy.
He also dislikes Dragon Ball series even though he made Super Mario Bros. Z, which was heavily influenced by Dragon Ball Z, and he liked it when he was a loser fanboy. Maybe he is getting older, who knows? But given his behavior, it's likely that he does such thing a man like him always does.
Aside from being a dick, as stated above, I think we can agree that Super Mario Bros. Z is probably the best things about him, even if it didn't aged well. With well-written story, good comedy and rad-as-hell animation and action scenes, this animations is quite popular and inspires a lot of newcomers. Even big names like it too.
Also, his actual drawing is pretty good, though it's mostly a bunch of trashy furry stuff as you expect. It doesn't help that he draws furries more than making Super Mario Bros. Z.
Alvin is at the lowest point of his life, and the sad thing is, people used to look up to him. He made one show that is entertaining to the audience of every generations, and inspires people to become animators, but nope! He doesn't care about Super Mario Bros. Z anymore ever since Nintendo took down the series he proudly created. Now all he does is to stay in his basement for the rest of his life being a lazy fat-ass who spends most of his times playing video games, posting pointless things on Twitter and throwing insults at those at every chance he gets, even if it's unfair criticisms or outright ridiculous. If he wants to do something so pointless that makes people roll their eyes, then what's the point of making Super Mario Bros. Z in the first place? It's influential for sure, but what he does isn't worth doing it in his part.
One of Alvin's pests. A nobody who, amazingly, is worse than him. At first, he's not all that bad, just one of Alvin's friends. In reality, he is an obsessive stalker who use lies and deceptions to take advantage of him.
Too lazy to put anything here, but if there is one thing I could tell you, I think Alvin has a crush on Lonely Goomba.
