84,272 people have signed an online petition protesting against DC's decision to include Jesus as a character in a 'blasphemous' new comic. The comic, called the 'Second Coming', is written by Mark Russell who recently described the set-up in an interview: "The concept is that God was so upset with Jesus’s performance the first time he came to Earth, since he was arrested so soon and crucified shortly after, that he has kept him locked-up since then. "God then sees this superhero on Earth a few thousand years later and says 'that’s what I wanted for you!' He sends Jesus down to learn from this superhero and they end up learning from each other. They learn the limitations of each other’s approach to the world and its problems."
