My new favorite superhero is Bibleman. I haven’t seen his DVD or played with the spinoff toys – at least, not yet. But it is still great.
His creators describe him simply as “a human transformed by the Word of God.” Here is what a human transformed by the Word of God looks like:
I am pretty sure the sword (aka the “Sword of Truth”) is a reference to Matthew 10:34:
“Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.”
Bibleman also has a mailing list, which I have just signed up for. You must do this as well. And you also must watch this teaser of the DVD series where a little league baseball player is poisoned with polonium-210 by a leprous KGB agent, whereby SIN enters him by osmosis! Can Bibleman and his faithful friends save him? Watch and find out! But please, try not to break your monitor and keyboard while headbanging to the rockin’ Bibleman theme song.
