Jesus!

This week I ar been mostly being amused by Bibleman, the scripture-quoting christian superhero. Seemingly part-Jedi, part Power Ranger, bibleman and his sidekick Cypher help and save vulnerable youths by teaching them lessons culled from the bible.

I'm unsure from the trailer movies whether or not bibleman is actually intended to be a joke or not. If not, then the creators have certainly realised the value of a campy tongue-in-cheek approach. Witness:

Conquering the Wrath of Rage
and
Shattering the Prince of Pride

"You sure know your bible!"

"That's why they call me Bibleman."
