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.

FirstNationalBastard: ...actually, I think he is.

And, of course, The Thing is Jewish.

When I was seven days old my thing was made Jewish, too.

Son of Thunder: So, will this thread be an enjoyable nerdly discussion of subtle and overt indicators of super heroes' religious affiliations, and the handling of religious issues by comic writers, or will the Fark Atheist Brigade stink up the place too much with their hate-stench?

[reads thread]

Ah nuts.

The Thing's Jewishness actually started as a Hanukkah card drawing Jack Kirby did for the hell of it.

At some point in the 70s, Kirby did an illustration of The Thing wearing a Yarmulke and reading from the Torah

But, that was for his own personal use.

But, in 2002, writer Karl Kesel pulled the trigger and made The Thing openly Jewish, with the retcon explanation that he had always been Jewish, but didn't mention it because he didn't want assholes associating a monster like him with Jewish people.

And that's why The Thing's rocky schmekle is chipped.

Hulk not Catholic!!!

//I put way too much work into that animation.

Anyway...  I look at it like this...  The Hulk is a quick, short lived mutation.  He becomes a mutated thingy from something else (great big monster, from human).  And he generally doesn't have any forethought about anything he does.  So there is pretty much zero chance that he is religious at all, let alone Catholic.  So, if anyone actually put any more thought into trying to figure this out, than the couple of sentences I've given here, you really have wasted your time.

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.

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.
