As we reported earlier, DC Comics is set to release an outrageous and blasphemous new series featuring Jesus Christ as the sidekick for an “all powerful” superhero, Sun-Man.
In an interview with Bleeding Cool, writer Mark Russel informed fans last August that a new series would be released in 2019 depicting Jesus Christ as a superhero. The series presents God as being so upset with Jesus’s performance the first time he came to earth, given that he was arrested so soon and crucified shortly after, that he kept him locked-up since then. A few thousand years later, God sees a superhero on Earth and tells Jesus: “that’s what I wanted for you!” He sends Jesus down to observe this superhero. Both learn from each other while discovering the limitations of each other’s approach to the world and its problems.
