Marvelous Scripture

Can you imagine
if super heroes
all became Christians
and all the stories
in super hero
comics and graphic
novels were only
about how mankind
could only be saved
by the blood of Christ?

If all that happened
would people notice?
Would there be a fuss?
Would people complain?
Would folks say, “It’s strange . . .”

But in an equal
but opposite way
this really happened.

All super heroes
embraced a kind of
dark, fatalistic
nihilism that’s
downright religious
in intensity
and all the stories
in super hero
comics and graphic
novels are only
about how only
existential pain
and existential
struggle redeem us.

Did people notice?
Did anyone fuss?
Did people complain?
Did folks say, “It’s strange . . .”

Well. Isn’t that strange?
