The Bible:Superhero Bestseller?

This week “The Avengers,” the first superhero blockbuster movie of the summer, opens in theaters. So, it’s a great time to not only refresh your knowledge of comic book history, but also look at some of the superheroes of the Bible. You might take a literal approach like this one or think about the biblical characters (or other titans of faith) that show true courage, endurance, and boldness. Who made your list? Why? Share these articles with young adults and have a conversation about who they’d choose for their own lists of superheroes of faith:

  • What superheroes do you compare to characters in the Bible? (a la this blog post)
  • Who are your superheroes of faith? Why?
  • What characteristics do you admire about them? How might you emulate those in your own life?
