My Favorite Mid-90s Bad Ass Jesus Comic
Okay, people, I’ll give you one more, and it’s only because whenever I think of Avengers Unplugged #2, my mind always wanders also to the glory of Glory/Avengelyne II: The Godyssey #1.
To set up the issue, which was written by Robert Napton and drawn (at least the scenes I’m showing) by Ed Benes, Glory comes from the tradition of the Greek gods. Avengelyne is a hero based on the Christian God. The two heroes had teamed up before, but now they are stuck in the middle of a war between the Greek gods and the Christian God, based on the following, which shows what happens when the Greek gods stop by Jesus’ crucifixion to talk some trash.
It is not a pretty sight.
Be forewarned – bad ass Jesus drawn by Ed Benes follows if you continue reading!

I think the lesson here is something that was made very clear in The Big Lebowski.
