DC Comic Features a Jesus Christ Who is Out of Touch and Bungling

One of the leading comic book publishers in the world---DC Comics---is set to release a new "comic" book featuring an out-of-touch, former savior, bungling Jesus Christ as the lead character.

It pains me to write this---in fact I would prefer not to do so, but Christian parents and grandparents, you've got to be informed.

In the new comic, written by veteran writer Mark Russell, Jesus Christ will be portrayed as an out of touch former savior who is cast out of his prison in heaven and back down to earth because God the Father felt that Christ messed up his first visit with mankind, by getting killed.

The so-called comic book is set to be released in March. It's titled, "Second Coming."

Russell, the writer, says it features Jesus living in an apartment with a superhero named Sun-Man and describes the superhero as "the varsity quarterback son God never had."

Russell told the pop culture web site, "Bleeding Cool,"
"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' performance the first time he came to Earth since he was arrested so soon and crucified shortly after, that he has had him locked-up since then."

Russell says,
"God then sees this superhero on Earth a few thousand years later and says 'that's what I wanted for you!' He sends Jesus down to learn from this superhero, and they end up learning from each other. They learn the limitations of each other's approach to the world and its problems."

The writer also explains that this Jesus has been kept in a heavenly prison since his crucifixion because God is mad at him. "God was so upset with the fact that he got crucified the last time", he says, "that he wouldn't even let him look through the celestial keyhole at Earth to keep up."

In the pictured storyline, Jesus goes by a megachurch and they have a billboard of this Tom Brady-looking Jesus Christ throwing a football and he doesn't recognize himself.

Russell says, "This is a metaphor for him not recognizing what's been done with religion that bears his name."

And he says, "Megachurches are easy to make fun of."

Why is he and DC Comics doing this?


Only God knows for sure, but it is a mockery in its most crass, blasphemous form.

Russell says, "We need to rethink the ways to get the human race to play nice with itself because the ways we've been coming up with thus far, bribery, revenge, haven't solved anything."

He says, "We've been nailing criminals to crosses, in one way or another, for two thousand years and we still get more criminals."

This new project is certainly seen as a way to make money or the publisher wouldn't publish it, but it also most likely reflects the personal emptiness of the writer Mark Russell, and the publisher DC Comics.

Apparently, he is searching for a real way to "fix" the problems and has decided that Jesus Christ and His gospel is not the answer.

And now he is indoctrinating children across the world with his own brand of humanism and skepticism.

Mockery is a very serious offense against God and is most always committed by those who have no fear of Him or deny His existence.


There are various kinds of people who mock God.

The fool, Psalm 74:22; the wicked, Psalm 1:1; the enemy, Psalm 74:10; the hater of knowledge, Proverbs 1:22; 13:1; the proud, Psalm 119:51, Isaiah 37:17; and the unteachable, Proverbs 15:12.

A mocker goes beyond mere lack of judgment to making a conscious decision for evil.

Those who mock God will mock the people of God.

The Prophet Jeremiah "became the laughing stock of all my people," and was mocked "in song all day long (Lamentations 3:14)."

Mockery of God's prophets was commonplace (2 Chronicles 36:16).

Nehemiah (2:19) was mocked by his enemies, Elisha (2 Kings 2:23) was mocked by the youths of Bethel, and our Lord Jesus Christ was mocked by Herod and his soldiers (Luke 23:11), by the Roman soldiers (Mark 15:20 and Luke 23:36), by a thief on a cross (Luke 23:39), and by the Jewish leaders who passed by the cross (Matthew 27:41).

God warns that mockery of what is holy will be punished.

Zephaniah predicted the downfall of Moab and Ammon, saying:
"This is what they will get in return for their pride, for insulting and mocking the people of the Lord Almighty (Zephaniah 2:10). 
Isaiah 28:22 warns that mockery will cause the chains of Judah's sin to become stronger and that destruction will follow. 
And Proverbs 3:34 says that God will mock the mocker, but give favor to the humble and oppressed.

Jesus Christ will survive this assault by DC Comics. He's been through this kind of thing before.

Our concern should be, and is, focused on our children. These kinds of things can be very destructive to the spiritual development of kids if they are sitting in their room reading this kind of mockery.

Don't allow this publication into your home or into the mind of your children.

Here's the result of being vigilant and informed:

Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; [mockers]
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law, he meditates day and night.
He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper (Psalm 1:1-3).

Be Vigilant. Be Informed. Be Pro-Active. Be Prayerful. Be Blessed.

  1. FAF DC Comics Demean Jesus

    TRUTH…

    * DC Comics and Mark Russell are intelligent enough to know that this publication will cause a great deal of hurt and pain to Christians, but that Christians will not respond violently, and that it would endear them to the Western News Media and the hate-filled hearts and minds of the Leftist Secularist in the West and Muslims world-wide.

    * DC Comics and Mark Russell are intelligent enough to know that if they had published a similar portrayal of Mohammed that they would be subject to violent, perhaps life threatening repercussions, and the Western News media would condemn them in no uncertain terms.

    So what can we Christians do in response to this ugly promotion by DC Comics?

    1. We can point out to all our friends and neighbors (including non-Christians) how hurtful this is and how sad it is that a publication for consumption by children could justify promoting this kind of hateful and malicious tripe for consumption by innocents.

    2. We can make a clear and firm "permanent" commitment to guard our children from exposure to any D.C. Comics publications from the past or future, understanding that while we can forgive we also can also make it a point not to support D.C. Comics or trust their works ever again, and to encourage our friends and family do so the same.

    3. We can all write a note to D.C. Comics stating how sad it is to see any publication for either Children or Adults publish such an obviously hurtful and harmful story maligning kind peaceful Christians and their children for their faith in Jesus Christ. Further that we will not be contributing to their economic health and ability to poison children’s minds with their hate ever again, and will be encouraging our friends and family to do the same.
    Finally, that we will pray for them to find release from the hate they have embraced.

    4. Or…we could feel bad and do nothing, expecting God to fix it because “He’s in charge” so we’re off the hook of responsibility to stand against evil and face the repercussions..

    Truth is a lonely warrior,

    1. I think that D.C. comics wants to reach children to discourage them from believing in Jesus and also to start them criticizing Christianity, God, the Bible and the church. A hate movement. But this certainly is not going to draw sympathy from the news medias or those on the left. If you said wrong things about any nonChristian religion, the human rights commission would be after you. But because Christ is the TRUTH, the world hates Him. It won't be that long before they kneel before Him.

  2. I find myself so discouraged and even depressed with the ongoing onslaught against decency, common sense, Christians and truth, that I wonder just where to turn next. Nothing surprises me anymore, not even this new DC comic. Gary Randall's blog is truely a continual reminder of how important it is to remain constantly aware and vigilant. I just finished a course offered by Hillsdale College on WWII taught by Victor Davis Hansen, and the numerous incredible parallels between the ideologies of the fascists and nazis of Germany and Italy with today’s aetheists and avowed socialists is astounding. It never ceases to amaze me how the human race bungles along repeating the same mistakes, and never changing. Thanks and praise be to Gary and Faith and Freedom.us, and I hope we all pray not only for our country, but for our "news" media, and for our brainwashed poor youth, especially those lost youngsters struggling through the blitz called "college". It’s so sad..........

  3. So hard for the children of today to be in this world but not of it. Very difficult for parents in these dark days. But, WE are the Body of Christ.

  4. Pure blasphemy. May God deal with these mockers as He has so many times in the past. In the meantime let us strive to keep this trash out of family, friends, and our minds. Protests haven't been particularly effective in the past but wouldn't it be wonderful if DC comics went BANKRUPT over this blasphemy? A auto manufacturer in the 80ies nearly went bankrupt for their slogan, sell your soul for their product.
