From the land of silly-but-fun role-playing ideas

The PCs are the Vatican Five, defenders of the Roman Catholic Faith and the Divine Authority of Papal Perfection. They don’t have superpowers. They are like Batman: skin-tight costumes, big capes, and lots of gadgets. Wherever Catholicism is under attack, they suddenly appear and KICK SOME SERIOUS ASS. (Yes, this is not unlike a certain Monty Python sketch.)
Nooooooooobody expects the Vatican Five! POW! WHAM! SOCKO!
But seriously . . . . If you don’t have five players, add a couple of NPC sidekicks. Design a few silly anti-Catholic villains. Give each PC a Divine Intervention or two. The Pope is their Commissioner Gordon. Make the plots very simple and violent. Quote liberally from the Bible during fist fights with evil henchmen.
Amen.
