Pope Francis gets superhero treatment
"Super Pope" -- That's the name being given to Pope Francis since he made headlines several times this past year.
First, Francis landed the cover of Time Magazine as its "Person of the Year."
Now, the pope is the first of his kind to make the front of Rolling Stone magazine as well.
His simple messages of helping the poor and his crackdown on Vatican corruption are proving him to be one of the most popular popes of our time.
This is probably why a graffiti cartoon of a white-caped crusader appeared on a wall just off St. Peter's Square.
In typical super hero fashion, Francis' right fist is thrust in the air, while his left clutches his black satchel with the word "valores" -- values in Spanish -- written on it.
The artist is identified as Maupal, and his work is even approved by the Vatican communications office, who tweeted a photo of it Tuesday.
