Shouldn’t It Be Obvious That All Superheroes Are Fictional?

Here’s an entertaining thought experiment: If I told you there was a man with supernatural powers, who people looked to in times of need, who was thought of as a savior, who was immortalized in books and films, and who had scores of enemies, would you say this person was real or fictional?

Superman is fictional. Catwoman is fictional. The X-Men are fictional.

But when the superhero is Jesus, suddenly everyone thinks he’s real.

That’s the premise of a documentary called Batman & Jesus. It’ll be out next year, but the trailer is up right now:
