Breaking News: Pope Returns as Superhero Complete w/ Chastity Pants


According to, "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 entire article is here) "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. In the comic book, the pope dies and is reborn with superpowers beyond the infallibility Catholic doctrine gave him on Earth."

I don't really think that there's much I can add to this other than it makes perfect sense.

Oh, there is one other related Pope question.... How long can the Pope's body just hang out on a table in 80 degree Roman weather without some very unfortuante consequences? I mean, the Church has said that he was not embalmed (embalming would severely muck-up any process of sainthood), so that means he's just sitting there. I'm no coroner, but I know gases build up, fluids drain, and some other very unpleasant things happen to dead bodies. I'm no Catholic, but someone needs to keep an eye on this, or things could get messy. Here's an article that discusses some of these issues in case you're as concerned as I am (truthfully, the people in line without rain slickers should be the most concerned).Posted by Hello
