Gratuitous randomness: The many faces of The Pope

When you consider the elaborate costume, the mystical powers and the "popemobile," it's pretty clear that the pope is a superhero. Or possibly a supervillain. Whatever the case, like a superhero/villain, the pope also has a rich inner life that gets lost in the glitz and glam of his popular exploits -- and that's why today (and because it's Wednesday, the day that we bring you the best of our weird internets world in a random compendium of images loosely related to whatever topic we happen to come up with) we bring you 11 images of the many faces of the Pope: happy, sad, contemplative, coquettish, benevolent. Also, a lot of them are evil.
