How Superheroes And Jesus Go Hand In Hand

When you look to Jesus, you look for guidance, for hope, and with a ton of gratitude.
But have you ever thought of Jesus as your own personal superhero?

jesus and superheroes - the ultimate connection

A superhero is a "benevolent fictional character with superhuman powers, such as Superman." However, Jesus is not a fictional character. He is the real thing. Here is some scripture that can be directly tied to your faith with every Christian's hero and your favorite superheroes from the movies and comics.

Mark 10:27
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man, this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”
If you know anything about superheroes, it's that most of them are superhuman. Whether they were bitten by a radioactive spider or from an entirely different planet, these human-like beings show that nothing is impossible, just like Jesus.

Philippians 2:5
In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus.
Did you ever wonder why Batman never actually killed the Joker? While some might argue that he didn't want to be a villain, we'd like to think that it's because he is following the Golden Rule. Treating others with kindness (and justice) like our hero Batman reflects that Jesus treats people that way, too, no matter their sins.

1 Corinthians 15:57
But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Superheroes usually defeat the bad guys in the end. Just like Lord Jesus Christ is victorious, our heroes always save the day!

Philemon 1:25
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.
When things get rough on Earth or elsewhere, people need a source of hope. A superhero will always be that ray of light. You always see people happy to see our beloved heroes - doesn't that remind you about how you feel about God?

John 6:29
Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.”
Superheroes are always sent somewhere on a mission. Jesus did the work of God, and heroes do the work of saving the world!

2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
If you follow comic books, you know sometimes there are reiterations of the same character. There were like five Green Lanterns, after all. A new creation has come in the form of your favorite hero!

John 15:18
If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first.
Sometimes heroes go through some personal problems. And when they cause a little damage trying to squash the villain, it might make people angry. The world hates them, just like this scripture says.
