    Always picked his holiness as a D.C. type anyhow. Except maybe the part where Superman comes back to life. Well the whole idea of a super man. And violence in comic books. Oh, and the whole idea of lower-class kids learning to read.

      Superman was a Methodist. I think Marvel may have more Catholic superheroes overall—Nightcrawler even went into the priesthood.

    News flash: Batman became more bitter and vengeful 40 years ago.

    That explains the internal memo from the new Pope:
    MORE TWEETS ABOUT BATMAN.

     I agree with the pope on something!

  5. Um, Batman is vengeance.  How many times do they need to see the alley and graveyard scenes before the Vatican gets this?

    Well, at least he didn’t become a child molester.  Perhaps before criticizing fictional characters, the Vatican should get a handle on its own actual villains. I see an opportunity for DC to add to Batman’s cadre of foes.

    In fairness, the Pope might have been reading the most recent story arc, in which case Batman did suffer a fairly significant loss.
