Crimefighting ‘Super’ Pope Francis graffiti : who is the mysterious artist?

(source) It wasn’t enough that Pope Francis was named Time magazine’s “Person of the Year” or that he fronted this week’s Rolling Stone magazine. Now there’s SuperPope graffiti sprouting up around the Vatican.
The white caped crusader appeared Tuesday on a wall just off Borgo Pio, a tiny cobble-stoned street near St. Peter’s Square. In typical superhero fashion, Francis’ right fist is thrust in the air, leading him in flight, while his left clutches his black satchel. “Valores,” or values in Spanish, is written across it.
