Since his introduction, Bullseye was primarily been known only by his codename: "Bullseye." He we was sometimes referred to as "Lester," and sometimes by some other names, including "Benjamin Poindexter." It was not clear which of these, if any, was his actual birth name. These may have been aliases.

The "Ares War Plan Transcript" text-based story (or dialogue, really) published in Siege #1 (Mar. 2010) explicitly identifies Bullseye's name as "Benjamin Poindexter." While this may not be "proof" that this is Bullseye's actual birth name, it is presented as an official document prepared by U.S. government authorities with the highest possible security access. We have decided to use this name - "Benjamin Poindexter" - in the "real name" field for Bullseye.
