I'm sure most of you remember a few years back when Danish newspapers published a cartoon image of the prophet Muhammad, which caused an uproar in the Muslim world. In Islam, it is forbidden to display an image of Muhammad in any way. This way of thinking was a bit hard to understand for the Christians of the western world. Images of Jesus has appeared in various films and paintings, Some of the latter going back 1500 years. Jesus has appeared in some comic books, all of them Christian comics that retold his life and works.
Satan of course, has appeared in superhero comics since at least the 1950s. So if Satan has appeared in various superhero comics, how many has Jesus appeared in? There is only one that I know of, and it's seems to be an unlikely hero he was teamed up with.
The date for the above comic is Dec 1974. You can see Satan is trying to claim the soul of Johnny Blaze, the Ghost Rider. The Comic starts off with Ghost Rider fighting a one eyed demon named Inferno, who has hypnotized a crowd and is using them against the Ghost Rider. Towards the end of the comic, the Ghost Rider is defeated, and Satan shows up to claim his soul. Except there is one person in the crowd who steps in on Johnny's behalf.
I thought for a long time about whether to post this or not, but upon review, it's not offensive, and it's an interesting bit of comic book history. If anyone thinks I'm wrong, let me know.
