I'd like to discuss what religious beliefs are favorite costumed hero's belong to. But beyond that, what do we know of superhero's beliefs?
Do you think we'll be seeing the topic of religion explored in the Marvel Universe anytime soon? JQ [Joe Quesada, editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics]: I don't know if dearth is the right word to use, especially when traditionally there was no expression of religious beliefs by comic characters in the past. has Peter Parker in the attic of his Aunt May's home, where he is going through some of his old things.

IIRC [If I recall correctly], here's the Catholic Clix you can play: Daredevil Huntress Nightcrawler Possible Catholics (or lasped Catholics): Kingpin Gambit Hawkeye Catwoman (her sister was a nun) Plastic Man Due to strong guilt and responsibilites the following could be Catholic (or Jewish): Spider-Man Blue Beetle spanishyoda 05/26/2003, A good argument for Spidey being Catholic in comics are: A: May Parker's maiden name is Reiley, and given her age and region of the country that she grew up in it could be assumed that she is Catholic. I've been to Lutheran funeral that look a lot like Catholic, as do Orthodox. Given that Uncle Ben's of Irish descent (based on his last name) it would stand to reason that he's Catholic.
They're at the one, the only, The Ball, which is basically a humongous cluster of Jewish singles partying 'til Christmas morning.The Goddess was a manifestation of the "benevolent" side of Adam Warlock, and she planned to use these heroes in her crusade to rid the galaxy of evil and usher in a new golden age of peace. PETER PARKER (thinking): Funny how most of my conversations with God end like that. I would argue that Spiderman and Batman definitely have no strong religious beliefs at this time. freakazoid_x 08/22/2003, I always believed that Spidey was Jewish.After these 33 characters had been kidnapped by the Goddess, the remaining superheroes gathered to try to figure out what was going on.

Peter being a very science oriented individual tends to dismiss the religious angle many times though he has been known to pray in some way but it's typically prayed with a "if you're real" or "we don't get along well, God" or some such comment.

Peter speaks as if talking directly to Gwen, recounting events from the time they had together. B: I believe in the ASM issue where Peter proposes to Mary Jane, Aunt May donated his old microscope to a Catholic Church for a fund raiser. I wouldn't use the "Our Father" as a sign of being Catholic. The same is true with the ideas of confession and alter boys. There's a very large presence of Irish Catholics in New York.For us to sit around a table and say, "hey, we need a dozen new Hispanic characters," seems forced and not the way we go about our creative business. C: In the many what if tales where Peter Parker dies, (Most notably "What if Kraven had killed Spider-man" and "What if Spider-man became Venom"), Spider-man is shown as having a Catholic, or Catholic-looking funeral. Peter's probably 'too cool' to go to church, but I'd say he'd follow in his uncle's footsteps if he does go to church.Nevertheless, it has always been apparent that Peter Parker (Spider-Man) is from a Protestant Christian background. , PM Machina This is a discussion I've had several times with my friends, and usually I step out of it when it turns offensive. ) Thing to remember though that until recently, like the past decade, religion and talks of such were verboten in most main stream comic books.
