Of course, since cloning [[ClonesArePeopleToo doesn't make]] [[YouFailBiologyForever the same person again]] one might end up with someone who uses their powers [[DarkMessiah For Evil]] or giving a [[AntiAntiChrist "screw this."]]

Someone has gotten ahold of a DNA strand of Jesus or his [[CrystalDragonJesus equivalent]] and has decided, hey, let's make another! Maybe they actually want to speed along the SecondComing a little, or maybe they want to throw in a little [[ForScience Mad Science]] with Religion.

* During Marvel's ''ComicBook/CivilWar'' crossover, [[ComicBook/IronMan Tony Stark]], [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Reed Richards]], and [[ComicBook/MightyAvengers Hank Pym]] use a single hair to create a clone of [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]].

He was basically a cyborg killing machine ''loosely'' under their control - one of the first things he did was kill Bill Foster. Hercules considered him an insult to the real deal, and when Thor got back he outright [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomped]] Tony for the move.

* The Creator/RobertRankin novel ''The Brentford Chainstore Massacre'' had Jesus cloned from DNA found on the Turin shroud. He actually plans to clone multiple Jesuses so that every religion can have one (no, it MakesExactlyAsMuchSenseInContext), but only does two to start with [[spoiler: who turn out to be a good Jesus and a bad Jesus]].

** She has, by ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid'', gotten used to it, accepting it as a term of respect and affection. For their part, the Saint Church [[SaintlyChurch has lived up to their name]], treating her as her own person rather than a copy of their Jesus analogue and letting her live her life as she and her parents see fit. Though she's still highly respected for being the last descendant of the Sankt Kaiser. The manga also gives more information about Olivie, making it clear that while both she and Vivio are KungFuWizard heroines, they each have their own personality.

* Accidentally invoked in the movie ''Film/TheFifthElement''-the Embodiment Of Love was sent to Earth to protect us from a Big Ball Of Darkness. Ended up getting vaporized, but the forensics who found the wreckage were able create a clone from the few remaining cells with all of the original's memories intact, and her capacity for [[{{Badass}} badassery]] and {{fanservice}}. There's a HandWave for this: Leeloo's DNA is shown to have multiple helices, and one of the scientists describes it as having 200,000 "memo groups" (a made-up term) compared to the 40 in human DNA. The implication is that her DNA contains memory and acquired traits as well as basic growth instructions.

* The practical difficulty with cloning Jesus of Nazareth - even if the technology was advanced enough to do this - would lie in getting a tissue sample allowing DNA to be retrieved. However, TheBible informs us that following the Resurrection, Jesus was bodily taken into Heaven and did not leave behind a body. Discounting any blood traces left behind on whips, thorns, nails, et c, which at the time would have carried no significance whatever to the Romans and which might have been cleaned or recycled for the next crucifixion (thus removing or contaminating the traces at the very least), this poses a problem. However, imaginative thinkers have pointed out that Jesus would have left ''one'' small part of his physical body on earth. As a Jewish boy, on the eighth day after birth, he would, of course, have been circumcised. On this basis, at least three churches in Europe claim to be the sole ''Eglise de la Saint Prepuce'' - the Church of the Holy Foreskin. This suggests either Jesus was not as other men (or He healed himself three times..), or else there were some genius-level pardoners peddling holy relics in mediaeval times. But if one of those three churches turns out to have the real deal... cloning may be a possibility.
