Maybe you knew that Green Lantern had a religion and that he was Jewish and Catholic or that Giant-Man is an atheist. I did not; in fact I didn’t even know that comic book characters had religions.
Thanks to an interesting website, www.comicbookreligion.com, I now know the religions of hundreds of super heroes and villains. I find it interesting as it provides a whole new level of character and complexity to individuals known more for strength and existential anxiety than belief. Wouldn’t it be interesting to see a super hero movie in which the character's specific religious beliefs played a role?
The index lists hundreds of characters and religions so I went through and just chose a few. I encourage you to visit the website and see the full extent of religions represented.
Anglican - Captain Britain
Baptist – Ghost Rider
Catholic – Black Cat
Jewish – Doctor Fate (he’s a doctor…)
Muslim – The 99
Norse – Thor (talk about believing in yourself)
