The Birth of a New Superhero

Speculation is running wild.

After years of playing second fiddle to Mary’s appearance in a pancake, a grilled cheese sandwich, an overpass water stain, etc. et cetera &c, Pope John Paul II has apparently had enough.

He’s burst into flames.

For the unbeliever, here’s proof:



Granted, it looks more like him if you squint your eyes and put on Rosary-colored glasses. Ignore the chuckles from the Protestant gallery asking if the reason the Pope is appearing in flames is so he can warn Catholics of their eternal destination. What we have here is the ultimate proof that JPII has not died, but merely changed professions.

Batman beware. The pontiff is now Pyropope.

Yes, I made that part up. Unfortunately, I didn't make up the part about how the flames supposedly look like John Paul II.

  1. I think they need to hire a better pyro-technician for his next apparition.

    If it was Mary, (Queen of Heaven, you know), this would lend a whole new meaning to "Hey check out that flaming queen!"

    Sorry, couldn't resist.

  3. Quite eerie, but I've no reason to believe it is him.

  4. To judge by the Catholic sex scandal, there are quite a few flaming queens illuminating the dark corners of the priesthood (which is not to level an accusation against JP-2).

    This is ridiculous. That would only be an apparition of JP2 if what they were burning were some good 'ole Tyndale Bibles...

    The truth is, he's been called back to life (it's a little known Hollywood secret) to play the Human Torch in the upcoming Fantastic Four sequel. "Flame on!"

    The enemy in this one is the evil Pope Galactus.
