Self-styled 'comedy terrorist' Aaron Barschak told the Jewish News this week that “Jesus always beats Superman” after escaping a conviction for harassment.

Barschak was arrested in November 2006 after brandishing a pornographic magazine at Michael Jackson outside the Hempel Hotel in Craven Hill, Paddington, and allegedly shouting “Are you here for the Children in Need week, Michael?”

He refused an £80 fine and was taken to court after fan Danny Oliver, dressed in a Superman jacket, complained to patrolling police that there were children in the crowd who found the images distasteful.
