The best of #comicbookbible

Something magical happened on twitter yesterday. A bloke named itsThat_0ne_guy started a twitter hashtag called #comicbookbible that was, essentially, taking a bible quotation then replacing a bible character's name with a comic book character's name, though it did evolve to not be just comic book characters, and to in some cases plant the comic characters into bible stories. It didn't become a Trending Topic or anything, none in my twitter circle are big enough to make it so, but for for a few glorious hours, it was very, very good. You can search the tag yourself, but it deletes older ones from the tag search after a week or so. This will preserve some of the best. I'll link to twitter accounts and all tweets involved, and group by user name. I'll only post my own if they were retweeted by multiple users, to avoid ego tripping. I highly suggest you ReTweet and Favourite any of these tweets you enjoy, to keep the hashtag going and such. Let's go!
