Then Jesus might add, hopefully, “I also rose from the dead.” Superman would probably roll his eyes and then look over at Spiderman and say, “Yeah, I’ve done that in so many episodes I can’t even count ‘em.” As Jesus looked down at his shoes, Superman would exhale slowly and say, “Hey Spidey, let’s go get a beer.” The two of them would stand up and start to go. Then Superman would turn and look back. “Oh, wanna come with us, Jesus? ”
