The Incredible Popeman!

Apr 06, 2005 in Humor

Pope John Paul II has come back to life — as a comic book superhero!

The Incredible Popeman (El Increible Homopater) was created by Colombian comic book artist Rodolfo Leon, and the first issue is about to go on sale in Columbia and Poland. Along with the spiffy outfit featured to the left (with “anti-devil cape and chastity pants”), the Incredible Popeman’s toolbelt comes equipped with holy water, communion wine and a Bible.

In this page from the comic, apparently the first person the Pope meets in heaven is not St. Peter, but Superman.

According to the Reuters article, the artist also plans “to produce Incredible Popeman action dolls.” I’d like to make a few suggestions:

  • The Incredible Popeman Action Figure, with Crowd Waving Action! (For use with the Popemobile, below)
  • Another Incredible Popeman Action Figure that shoots real Holy Water! (Holy water not included)
  • The Incredible Popemobile, with turbo boost action!
  • The Vatican Action Playset
