Vital Viper Approved is a meme involving stamps of approval from Vital Viper that are pasted over avatars or signatures to show that Vital Viper has "APPROVED" them. At one point, Vital Viper mocked the "APPROVED" avatars by making his say "VITAL VIPER UNAPPROVED".
Vital Viper began approving avatars when the Super Hero Lounge forum reopened January 2009. He created a thread called,"Get your Sigs and Avys VV Approved Here!!!", in this thread forum members could post and have either their avatar or signature approved by Vital Viper or one of his helpers as long as they met his lax approval guidelines.
