The Religious Affiliation of Comic Book characters

Ever wondered what faith Superman was? or who Spiderman prayed to at night? Well wonder no more... Thanks to adherents(dot)com we now know. They have pulled together a comprehensive list of the religious affiliations of all the comic book heroes/ villians/ pals.

Personally, I'm not that big a comic fan... like to watch the movies, especially Batman Begins and I have been known to watch the Justice League of America cartoon with my eldest daughter. I do think it is cool to know that Batmam is a lapsed Catholic and Superman is a Methodist. My personal fav character is Nightcrawler aka Kurt Wagner (isn't he the lead singer of Lampchop???) who is, surprise, surprise, a devout Catholic.

What shocked me though was the vast number of heroes that have appeared in comic books... Check it out: Link
