Popeman Comics Kick Satan’s Ass

BOGOTA, Colombia (Reuters) – Pope John Paul II is being
reborn in a Colombian comic book as a superhero battling evil with an
anti-Devil cape and special chastity pants.

The first episode of the "Incredible Popeman" is about to go on sale
in Colombia and shows the late Polish pontiff meeting comic book legends such
as Batman and Superman to learn how to use superpowers to battle Satan.

"The pope was a real-life superhero, of flesh and blood," said Colombian
artist Rodolfo Leon, a non-practicing Catholic who has been working on the comic
book for about a year.

Like any self-respecting superhero, the Incredible Popeman has a battery of special
equipment. Along with his yellow cape and green chastity pants, the muscular
super-pontiff wields a faith staff with a cross on top and carries holy water
and communion wine.

Sometimes an idea comes along that is just so perfect that you can’t
believe it isn’t all part of some vast, multi-leveled marketing scheme.
This is sure to be a collectors item, and with the current mania for
turning successful comics into feature motion pictures, can a Hollywood
blockbuster be far behind.

We will do our best to get our hands on a copy of this publication,
so that we can translate and review more of it for our readers. We
have contacts in Colombia, who are always looking for an excuse to send
stuff to the States…….
