Taken but not taken GT

So I wanted to change my gamertag to one of my favorite comic book characters, but when I tried to search for the gt so see if it was taken, it says it is not valid, however when i go to try and change my gt to it, it says that it is already taken. Is this because the gamertag was reported (like people do) and banned? or is it just something else?

Hi Riley Nightmare,

 

Please see the information below sourced from this thread HERE

 

I can't change my Gamertag (GT).
Most of the time if you are seeing a message saying the GT you want is unavailable, it’s true. One thing to remember is that spaces and capitalization don’t make your GT unique. For example, “Major Nelson”, “MajorNelson”, and “MaJoRnElSoN” are all the same GT.

 

GTs are also tied to services like Zune or Games for Windows LIVE. If a GT doesn't exist on Xbox, it might be in use on one of those services. If you try sending the GT you want a friend request and it says it’s not a valid GT that just means it isn’t used on Xbox LIVE, but it could be used for Zune or GFWL.

 

I heard old GTs are being re-added. When will "This GT" be available?
There is no schedule or estimated dates for when certain GTs will become available again. GTs are not an on-demand service. They will be available when they are available.

like Tgeekster said

capitalization of the same name can still block you from changing it, or other xbox services with the name but not particualrly has to be a gamertag can still get you block, so im sorry there seems to be no way to change it
