Jesus Is DC Comics New Superhero - But Christians Will Probably Not Be Amused

DC Comics is releasing a new comic story with Jesus as the new superhero. But readers will be suprised with the story line since it is nothing like the one known to many christians. Second Coming is the title of the new series and features Jesus coming back to earth with the mission the rectify the gospel. The series is written by Mark Russel and illustrated by Richard Pace, it will probably have six issues and will come out in March 2019. 

As previously shortly mentioned this series is far from the biblical story of Jesus. Instead, it portraits the crucifiction of Jesus as a disapointment to God, and He sends Jesus back to earth to learn from "Sun-Man" how to be a real saviour.

"An all-powerful superhero, named Sun-Man, has to share a two bedroom apartment with Jesus Christ. The conceit is that God was so upset with Jesus's performance the first time he came to Earth, since he was arrested so soon and crucified shortly after, that he has kept him locked-up since then,"

While announcing the series' debut last year, illustrator Richard Pace said Sun-Man "is like the varsity quarterback son God never had."

The series shows how Jesus had no idea what was going on earth when he left, and in His return he is supposedly shocked about how christians have misinterpreted the gospel, Russel explains.

" [Second Coming] is about Jesus coming down and being appalled by what he sees has been done in his name by Christianity"

" [Second Coming] is about Jesus coming down and being appalled by what he sees has been done in his name by Christianity in the last two thousand years. He goes by a megachurch and they have a billboard of this Tom Brady-looking Jesus Christ throwing a football and he doesn't even recognize himself which is a metaphor for him not recognizing what's been done with the religion that bears his name," he said the Bleeding Cool interview. 

Russel believes that Christianity's has it all backwards. "The Christian religion doesn't really base itself on what he taught, particularly in the modern Evangelical megachurches. They have him more as a mascot on t-shirts to prove they're on the winning team," he said.
