Each Sunday, Father Humberto Alvarez dons a special chasuble, or outer robe, decorated with images of superheroes, grabs a plastic gun full of holy water and celebrates a special mass for the children of Ojo de Agua parish in Saltillo, Mexico.
The Catholic priest's robe bears images of Superman, Batman and Spider-Man, superheroes who were chosen, Alvarez explains, because of their "struggle and effort to overcome fear and find peace and forgiveness." He began using a water gun to bless the congregation after a series of fatal shootings in Salitillo spooked the members of his parish last year. Alvarez's unconventional style of worship has attracted young and old Catholics to Ojo de Agua for the weekly children's mass. Afterwards, the priest puts away the water gun and comic book chasuble and officiates all of the other services without deviating from tradition.

They are ALL characters out of a comic or novel. I see no difference really who his has on the back of his frock.

But it is a bit disrespectful to those who follow the "other superhero", can`t he has a picture Jesus on his frock instead?
