NEWS: The New Pope Tweets About BATMAN! Is He a Fellow Nerd?

POPE FRANCIS I is wasting no time with handling his new responsibilities. He has taken to Twitter to post about none other than BATMAN himself! What was his opinion in the caped crusader?

So this is totally irrelevant news, but interesting (and funny) nonetheless!

Pope Francis I has been viewed as controversial by some but has generally been accepted as a pretty mainstream, if somewhat conservative choice. But has anyone been wondering what his opinions are on the dark knight? Check it out!

Well, he doesn't like his "new, darker" direction. Enjoy a couple of quotes from the article posted on the Vatican's official website...

Regarding his "new" tone, they say "In 2012, internationally famed writer Geoff Johns updated the superhero's origins in "Batman: Earth One." His Bruce Wayne was angrier and more vengeful than ever." Why can't Bruce just get over his parents' murder already? The Vatican also digs at our beloved Alfred, saying, "As for Alfred the butler, he had morphed from the polite, Jeeves-like figure fans loved into an ex-Marine more familiar with guns than place settings." Even though this is 2013, butlers should know their place!

Although I seriously doubt the Pope had anything to do with this, surely there is a better, more productive way for the Vatican to spend their time?

For the full (asinine) article, read the full story here!

...Or you can check out this funny video of the previous Pope trying to send his first tweet! Thumbs up please!

the vatican strikes me as an odd disneyland full of odd people

I thought about saying something sarcastic instead of that, but thought better of it. I was afraid people would confuse me for a Catholic.

I would figure he would be doing pope things, or helping alter boy's with something. What too soon?

He probably misses the days when Batman had a very special relationship with his young companion Robin.

batman should go after the pope,maybe then the catholic church would stop protecting those who touch little kids.

Wow really? There's a lot of bigotry going on here. I wonder how many of you lovely people claim for tolerance of other life choices and expect fair and equal treatment. And here you are....

That's some funny shit. I can just imagine the pope sat on his throne, his sceptre in one hand and Batman - Earth One in the other, audibly complaining about the changes made to Alfred. That's funny as [frick]. Do you think his newly formed ring is a little bit green?

He's obviously not as big a fanboy as Pope John-Paul II, though. He had a friggin' Pope mobile and his own church-sanctioned Marvel comic.

I was mainly making fun of their opinions on Batman! (If I am the one you are calling a bigot...)
PsyGuy - 3/23/2013, 7:27 AM

Also... not sure what you mean by "other life choices". Don't know of many other than religion! Toothpaste brand?

Just because Pope Francis is Catholic doesn't mean he's been involved in the sex abuse scandal. If you want to go after him for conservative teachings, fine, but just remember he's the pope of the Catholic Church, what do you expect? Anyway, it's kinda funny to see the pope and the Vatican taking an interest in pop culture.
