ROME, Jan. 29 (UPI) -- A mural painted on a Rome wall near Vatican City depicts Pope Francis as a briefcase-toting super hero soaring through the sky.

The mural, signed by the artist known only as Valores, depicts the pontiff flying in a Superman-esque flying pose with his white cape billowing behind him and a brown briefcase in his hand, the ANSA news agency reported Wednesday.

The mural became a quick hit at the Vatican, with communications staffers giving it a mention on the Vatican's official Twitter account.
