Superman is Methodist, and Rogue is a good little Baptist girl
Here's something I came across while randomly skimming the web: Religious Affiliation of Comic Book Characters (there's also this nifty visual grouping of them by creed). This is an exhaustive look at just about every major character in comic books and what their faith is. I've known for years that Nightcrawler is a devout Catholic (he almost became a priest). But did you know that Superman is a Methodist, that Batman may be a lapsed Episcopalian, that The Thing is Jewish, or that Rogue is a Southern Baptist? Well worth checking out if you're a comics fan or have a theological bent.
