Holy Comics

Up in the sky. It's a bird. It's a plane. No, silly mortal. It's Captain Miracle:

By speaking the name of God, young Billy Batista is transformed into Captain Miracle! With super powers granted by the Almighty, Captain Miracle fights the forces of evil:

Gaia Rites
a Pagan lesbian who values the earth more than men
Prof. Atheos
a Humanist whose inventions defy God's providence
Sodom al-Mohammed
an Islamic terrorist slaughtering American soldiers
The Anti-Miracle
the Captain's devil-powered counterpart
a mysterious being who appears to be unstoppable!

This is either the work of a sincere and truly frightening fundamentalist or the most brilliant parody I've seen in quite a while. I love that I can't tell which.

Holy Comics - "The leader in cruci-fiction"? Parody. Gotta be.

For some more ironically, unintentionally funny christian nuttiness, check out an authentic Christian superhero, Bibleman.com.

Truly horrible.

What's worse is that I let my son get one. D'oh!

Yep, I think you're right. I'm a little disappointed. I was hoping to order a copy.

I've encountered Bibleman before. I got the upper hand on that occasion. Sadly, the poor fellow is easily smitten with a fist-sized chunk of kryptonite.
