Is Superman Jewish, Methodist, or a Christ figure? Newsweek is examining the matter.
A discussion on this has popped up on the Christian Fandom mail list. And I came across the subject over at GetReligion.
So, I offer this nifty assemblage of charts and lists and links on comic book religion found at Adherents.com.
They list Wolverine as "former atheist, has practiced Buddhism, believes in God." Ben "The Thing" Grimm is Jewish. You already know about Nightcrawler and Catholicism. But..Rogue is Southern Baptist?
When you're done with the superhero list, peruse the list of supporting (non-superhero) characters and the list of villains. Lex Luthor is, apparently, a Nietzschian atheist, and Pyro is a lapsed Catholic.
Personally, I'd love to see the whole batch of X-Men get born-again and baptized in a mega-issue, artwork by John Cassiday and story by Chris Well.
Late Afternoon Addendum:
Chris "Nifty" Well--yeah, the fella I mentioned earlier--answers Mike Duran's questions over at DeCompose. The InSites interview of the talented author of FORGIVING SOLOMON LONG and DELIVER US FROM EVELYN is here.
