On last night's episode of The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert spied a spider crawling on the face of Pope Benedict XVI and posed a hypothetical scenario that would make Stan Lee proud: "... Given all the toxic waste and loose nuclear radiation all over Eastern Europe, if that spider bit the pope we might soon have ... Spider-Pope!"
"He could shoot holy water from his wrists," Colbert continued. "Trap atheists in his web, and every time someone used birth control his popey-sense would tingle!"
