    I have a hard time seeing batman as a worshipper. I doubt he's practiced since the death of his parents.

    Cool, they got Wolfsbane's religion right. Everyone seems to be under the misconception that she's Catholic.

    Why no mention of Moon Knight? If Wonder Woman and her worship of Greek gods makes the list, his preisthood of the Egyptian God of Vengeance should as well. And since when is Ultimate Thor a priest? Many people SAW him as a religious leader, but he himself only claimed to be a god. So if he makes the list because of that, then so should 616 Thor.

    I concur, Jonah's religion is great.

    Some of them don't surprise me at all (Daredevil as Catholic, Ben Grimm as Jewish), but Lex Luthor is a "Nietzschian atheist"? I've never even heard the TERM "Nietzschian atheist" til now.

    I hadn't, either, but thinking about it it does describe Lex pretty well. He's very survival of the fittest, and can you see Lex beleiving that anyone is above him?

    That's pretty slick. I wonder where they got all that info? Did it say on the site and I just missed it?
