This is beyond words really...

«El Incredible HomoPater» (The incredible pope-man) is trained by Superman and Batman to become the next superhero. The first edition of this comic strip is about to be published in Colombia. Among the gadgets he carries are holywater and a Bible...



In this (unbelievable) comic series, the pope dies, and is reborn with superpowers he has gained following his life as pope.

Rodolfo Leon Valencia who has created the comic, lets the Pope meet Superman and Batman. These two familliar superheros train the pope into using his powers against the evil of Satan.
Rodolfo Leon Valencia says he considers himself a catholic, and admired the Pope. His passing has made him sad.

So far, this comic will be sold in Colombia and the Pope's home country, Poland. But publishers in USA, Mexico and Canada have expressed interest.
Rodolfo Leon Valencia is worried some might see this as a negative use of the Pope, but he claims he only has good intentions.

This is not the first time the Pope has appeared in a comic book. In the eighties, Marvel comics published a comic book based on the Pope's life.

I just wonder what kind of person thinks "Right the Pope just passed away, how could I honour his memory? I know, I'll write a comic book where he fights against evil along wth Superman and Batman!!!"

I have a feeling Mr. Valencia is 12...  Smile

Thomas, I saw the interview they did to this guy in local network. He is about 30 and he was ready to publish his comic before the Pope became ill, he's been working in this project for quite long time; still I am not going to buy this thing at all.

Don't forget his "Parkinson's Power" - It means he can't be 'cracked' during torture cos he can't actually remember anything to tell the bad guys.

....or his special ability to bore people to death with his speeches on the virtues of abstinence!

Wow, I need to get better updated on deceases. I thought Alzheimers was the illness that caused you to loose your memory, not Parkinsons...  Confused

It is alzheimers that causes you to lose your memory, Parkinson's affects muscles mostly, AFAIK...

Looks like he's trying to lift and spread his ass cheeks on the comic book cover. Is that a normal thing for a catholic priest to do? (<--- rhetorical question).


Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

Shouldnt the title be "Homo-hater?"

Although with that satin red and green thing, he looks like an out of shape old queen on a Gay pride float.

Frankly, if I was a believing Catholic, I'd be appalled by that comic book cover !!

Yes it does but in the end it's all neurological.. however 'Alziemer's power' doesn't have the same ring to it.
