In fairness, Nightcrawler and the Daredevil are pretty unabashedly Catholic. The Punisher too--even with a storyline that revealed that he had once been on track for the seminary.

For those who have the time and want to take the effort, this is an incredible devotion to both religiosity and comic geekdom...

Does the Hulk also crap in the woods?

...actually, I think he is.

And, of course, The Thing is Jewish.

Huh.  I knew Atom Smasher was Jewish:

Interesting. I would have guessed Constantine, but not Ghost Rider as being Catholic.

Bruce Wayne isn't Catholic. He's Episcopalian. Lapsed, of course. But DC Comics has gone to great lengths to establish the Wayne family as being Episcopalian.

Just because he has an ambiguous relationship with a young boy doesn't mean he's one of you.

The Confessor from Astro City is about the most Catholic superhero I can think of.

You might hope the Vatican would be more concerned with this week's scandals than comic books.

LOL!

I thought the Hulk was Jewish? The guy who played him in the TV series had a last name like Horowitz or something didn't he?

It is almost like they make this shiat up as they go. My vote for the most Clerical of Catholic Heroes? Freddy Kruger. Seems like he'd have a long carrier with this organization.

Why should a fictional character believe in a fictional character?

In the case of Superman, it doesn't matter if he's Christian or not. Being an alien from another world means that he never inherited Original Sin and therefore doesn't need to be saved.

Also the churches pushing people to see Man of Steel is weird given that the only explicitly Christian scene in the movie ends with boy Clark asking why "God made him like this" and Pa Kent goes "Actually, you're an alien with alien parents."

So yeah...

what about Thor?

Good point.

Don't forget the part where Jor-El says "he'll be a God to them."

So, basically, if he's a "God" to them, they're worshipping another god.  Isn't that a no-no?

Yes the Hulk is Catholic.

Remember when Andre ripped Hulk's shirt off? He had a cross underneath his shirt that cut is chest wide open.
 
2013-07-07 06:18:22 AM
Christians are the first ones to break the 1st and 2nd Commandments. Worshipping Jesus and having Graven images is a no no. Touching children? Pass Go, and still get to eHeaven™.

what the hell does "worship" mean anyway.  i mean seriously.....

Comicbookreligion.com considers the Hulk to be a lapsed Catholic.
 
2013-07-07 06:23:15 AM
I've always felt that as screwed up as comics were they do at least get the religious sensibilities of some characters right... When they bother to do them.

I doubt you've ever demanded human sacrifices to be made in your honor.

/but then again, maybe you have

SunsetLament: Comicbookreligion.com considers the Hulk to be a lapsed Catholic.


So that means Hulk has to go to confession.

"Hulk sorry. Hulk sin."

"And how long has it been since your last confession?"

"HULK NOT KNOW. HULK NOT HAVE TIME FOR THIS SHIAT."

Well from the time bruce died and thor had to get his soul back and put it in the hulk to stop hulk smashing all the gods in asgard, the place bruces soul went to was not the christian heaven so while Hulk may be catholic, bruce certainly isn`t.

Superman is Jewish. At least based upon the '70s movie he is.
