Is Batman an Episcopalian? fills you in on the religious preference of your favorite comic book hero.

The emphasis of this page is on fictional characters who originated as comic book characters. Of course real-life people such as Pope John Paul II, St. Francis of Assisi, and Mother Teresa have been depicted in comic books (Marvel published one-shot comics about these prominent Catholics), but such people are not listed here. This page focuses on fictional comic book characters who are adherents of real-world (not purely fictional) religions.
