(AP) One of the Vatican's main Twitter accounts and the website of its communications office were running stories about Batman, raising concerns it might have been hacked.


A Vatican communications adviser Greg Burke, however, said the sites had not been hacked and that the story is a legitimate Catholic News Service story. "Admittedly some people might have been thrown off by the headline," he said.


The website of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications on Thursday was running a story with the headline "Holy Switcheroo: Batman has grown bitter, more vengeful with the years."


The office's Twitter handle (at)pccs_va sent a tweet with that headline and a link to the story.


Earlier this week, the Twitter account of a senior Vatican official was also hacked.
