Real Name: Miles Peterson

Identity/Class: Human, transformed by his belief in God

Occupation: School Teacher

Affiliations: Coats (original sidekick); Cypher (sidekick); Bible Girl (ally)

Enemies: Luxor Spawndroth; The Fibbler, Gossip Queen, Shadow of Doubt, Primordius Drool, Wacky Protestor, Rapscallion P. Sinister (a.k.a. Mr. Sinister [no relation to the X-Men enemy of the same name]).

First Appearance: Bibleman "The Six Lies of the Fibbler"

Powers/Abilities: As well as superhuman strength, Bibleman is equipped with a powerful suit of armour (which he terms the Full Armor of God). He also appears to be armed with a weapon which resembles a light sabre, for when fighting becomes the only available option.

History: Miles Peterson had everything a man could want in life - money, status and success. In spite of this, he felt his life was empty. Then he discovered the Word of the Lord (specifically, but not limited to the following verse from Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ because He gives me strength."), and was transformed. Imbued with superhuman powers, he became Bibleman, dedicated to fighting evil in God's name.

Comments: Bible Man is written and played by Willie Aames, who also provided the voice for Hank the Ranger in the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon. He is produced by Pamplin Entertainment for his Ministry. Visit the official website.

David Anderson provided some additional information used above, and also notes "Bibleman's costume is based on the armor described in the book of Ephesians 6:14-17. It consists of the Shoes of Peace, Waistbelt of Truth, Shield of Faith, Breastplate of Righteousness, Helmet of Salvation, and the Sword of the Spirit (his light saber-like weapon). Willie Aames has recently retired from the role of Bibleman. The character's new secret identity is Josh Carpenter, played by Robert Schlipp. So far, no effort has been made by the series to explore his past." He also supplied information about Bibleman's numerous foes (below).

Thanks to Tom for informing me of the name of Bibleman's first adventure. Thanks to Kelvin Green for the information about Willie Aames voice work in the D&D cartoon.

Comments: Biblegirl is played by Traci Henao. Heather Hazelwood took over the role as of "Jesus our Saviour" Part 1 and 2. Thanks to Tom for informing me of this. He notes that "They don't address the personnel change except a tongue-in-cheek remark about how she's changed."

Luxor Spawndroth

Real Name: Luxor Spawndroth (and with a name like that, is it any wonder he turned to evil?)

Identity/Class: Demonic entity

Occupation: Satan's Minion

Affiliations: Ludicrous (his sidekick)

Enemies: Bibleman, Cypher, Bible Girl

Known Relatives: None

Aliases: The Prince of Pride; El Furioso, the Shadow of Doubt, the Master of Misery, Dr. Fear (all used before he gave up and started to use his real name)

Base of Operations: The sewers beneath Randall Town

First Appearance: as Shadow of Doubt Defeating the Shadow of Doubt; as Master of Misery The Incredible Force of Joy; as Doctor Fear The Fiendish Works of Dr. Fear; as El Furioso Conquering the Wrath of Rage; as Prince of Pride Shattering the Prince of Pride; as Luxor Spawndroth Bibleman "Breaking the Bonds of Disobedience"

Powers/Abilities: Spawndroth has used a number of evil devices during his career, including: a shoulder mounted ego enhancing ray (during the period when he called himself the Prince of Pride) which would make it's victims become egotistical fools; Gold Fury, a device which fired a ray which causes victims to experience uncontrollable bouts of rage; "disobedience germs" which affected the judgment of those afflicted, removing their morals.

As Shadow Doubt he used a red light saber-like weapon that he uses in all of his incarnations, doubt toxin that causes people to doubt their faith in God and lose their confidence, Acme Instant Minions, beakers that, when broken, create minions to either help perform dance numbers or battle meddling superheroes.

As Master of Misery he wielded an Anti-Joy Transmittifyer, a laser gun that fires a beam that cancels out the joy in people’s hearts. Hooked into Bibleman’s power grid, it would have been strong enough to effect a whole city.

Dr. Fear employed a panic button, a remote control-like device that fires a beam that causes anyone wearing a special receiver button to feel overwhelming fear and sweat so much they leave salt on the ground where they’ve been.

History: Luxor is Bibleman's greatest foe. Alongside his idiot sidekick, Ludicrous, he returns again and again to challenge the hero, and always fails.

Comments: Luxor Spawndroth is played by Brian Lemmons. Thanks to Tom for informing me of this. Thanks to Josh Fielding for correcting me to where he first appeared.

Clifford Earl informs me "the villians in Bibleman are demons, evil spirits. That is why Bibleman defeats them by uttering Bible verses, and it is also why they do not die, but rather keep coming back in episode after episode ("reincarnating", I should say, into different demons; going from a demon of fear to a demon of pride to a demon of rebellion) until they are punished (cast into hell) for their persistent failure and replaced by stronger evil spirits. There are actually episodes where the demons are shown receiving orders and warnings from other higher demons: in one episode "demon bosses" were dark shadowy figures with red eyes, in another episode the "demon bosses" were dressed and face - painted like heavy metal rockers and were shown surrounded by flames. The show does not present this overtly, as it might offend the beliefs of more "mainstream" Christians; as such they would watch the show and believe that the villains are little different from the villains in any other superhero series. However, more radical Christians whose beliefs deal more directly with demons can easily figure out what is being implied. There was one exception however: in the episode "Silencing the Gossip Queen" when Bibleman referred to one of the villains as a demon."

Other enemies of Bibleman, about whom I don't know enough to justify giving them a full profile:

Dr. Decepto

First Appearance: Big, Big Book

Powers/Abilities: None known.

Comments: This character only appears in a brief flashback, so his powers and weapons, or even his schtick, are unknown. The name would imply that he deceives people.

Madame Glitz

First Appearance: Back to School

Powers/Abilities: None known.

Comments: Madame Glitz represents, I think, being charmed by worldly beauty instead of spiritual beauty.


First Appearance: Six Lies of the Fibbler

Powers/Abilities: Red light-saber like weapon, had the power to make people tell fibs, and through unknown means was invisible and inaudible to everyone except Bibleman.

Gossip Queen

First Appearance: Silencing the Gossip Queen

Powers/Abilities: Could shoot “beams of bitterness” from her fingertips, was assisted by two demons called Loose Lips and Blabbermouth

Comments: Gossip Queen was played by Maylo Upton, Willie Aames’ wife. She also provided the voice of UNICE and LUCI, the heroes’ and villains’ computers, until Willie retired from the series.

Wacky Protestor

First Appearance: (as Primordious Drool) Jesus Our Savior; (as Wacky Protestor) A Light in the Darkness, Divided We Fall, A Fight For Faith

Powers/Abilities: (as Primordious Drool) Had no weapons, but had the power to shoot energy balls and lightning bolts from his hands; (as Wacky Protestor) all episodes Blue light saber-like weapon, and in Divided We Fall at least he had the power to shoot energy balls like Drool. (Light) Spasmodic, Meteotronic, Wacksonic Cloud of Darkness, a chemical whose fumes induce a desire for isolation. (Divided) INSECT, Infiltrating Network Satellite Emulation Communication Transmitter, a robotic bug that can manipulate broadcasts so that the people in them say whatever Wacky Protestor wants them to, allowing him to make the Bibleteamers seem to be making fun of each other behind their backs, and eventually to control the dialogue of a popular cartoon character to warp the behavior of the children watching. (Fight) Neuroiconoclasticskeptisiser, a ray that suppresses its victims’ belief in God, and which also contains ART, Artistic Reconstructive Transport, a portal to a cartoon-like artificial dimension where he plans to trap all of the city’s Sunday schoolers

Comments: The demonic Drool referred to himself as an “intergalactic desperado of destruction”. I have no idea what folly he’s supposed to represent. Wacky Protestor is Primordious Drool reincarnated. Both are played by Jef Scott.

CLARIFICATIONS: Cypher should not be confused with
