I like the images chosen, the way the border doesn't hold the whole image, and the effect over the background.
What bugs me is how the blast doesn't finish. it gets cut off. I think you should resize it or something. That would make it look better.
Also, try to make the thingy under the subtext extend under all the subtext. one or two letters were not illuminated. And do something with the text in the av. don't just drop it in there

The border effect is great, but something gray-ish that vaguely resembles part of a hand is cut off on the left side. It looks a little awkward; maybe you could either include all of the mysterious gray object or just cut it out entirely.
Although I like text effects, and the shadow on the main text is well-done, I don't think it fits very well with a pixelated font. It's just my sense of aesthetics, so feel free to disregard this, but it feels kind of misplaced, giving something that is by design evocative of old 2D graphics a 3D effect.
It's good that you chose two different images for the signature and avatar, it makes it look far more interesting. However, the avatar is a little plain; perhaps you could play with varying effects and add a little more details next time?
