The OP is referring to a certain prophecy of a few hundred years ago about a list of popes, many of which have allegedly come true and the very last pope on that list is "Peter the Roman".
But because the OP fails to provide a context or back-story, the responses to the thread are of no use to the OPs premise whatsoever. I wish some more thought could be put into the OPs around here. Otherwise you`ll just have the usual responses from atheists ("none of this is real"), conspiracy-theorists ("the repitilians are among us!"), protestants ("the pope is not a christian!") and other assorted stuff that has nothing to do with the particular prophecy this thread was supposed to be about.
That said...no, I don't believe the prophecy is valid. If it were valid, then the current pope would have to be the last one.
If the anti-christ exists at all, he is also most likely not going to appear as the head of the Catholic Church because that Church is rather unpopular among most young folk these days. The anti-christ would appear as someone or something hugely popular. The Internet for example.

What if there is no anti Christ. Because there's no evidence for any of the supernatural occurrences that the bible claims happened. What if the rest of the heathen world doesn't worship the Christian anti deity because.... Wait for it... Why would they worship the anti diety of a religion they don't believe in.
Even better... Why would someone who did believe worship the side that you get tortured for all eternity? They wouldn't.
Satanism is a red herring.. There never have been groups of people that worshipped the devil. All the "satanic" organizations are just atheist anarchists who chose the name as an FU to the establishment. Which in western culture is Christianity.

Actually the facts that bible thumpers deny bold face are the heart of the prophecy. Many examples of ETs intervening in human affairs. 2 Particular, though possibly unorthodox. 1 Enoch being taken up by God and transformed into an angel of light, if read correctly it translates to Enki taking Enoch on his ship and activating his latent DNA to become the Seraphim known as Metatron. 2 is Moses and the burning bush(occult meaning:Lucifers Light) Moses goes up the mountain to receive knowledge from Yahweh to give to the people as the Laws of God. Practically any story of angels or other beings coming to the aid of mortals in the old testament is reference to either the Anunaki or the Sumerian Gods, which relatively speaking are one and the same. Fact remains, the agenda of intervention of ETs has been in the making by the world religions for centuries, the proof is in the religious art.
Is Pope Francis the last pope? The good black(jesuit) pope?
Is the antichrist ("peter the roman") an alien-human(half-grey) hybrid?
What if the mark is his alien "dna" or some neural interfacing technology that is implanted in the hand and the frontal lobe?
