If a personality quiz asked Thor to list his religion, he would fill in the blank with the words "Teutonic Pagan." Superman and Supergirl would write "Methodist." The Fantastic Four's Benjamin "The Thing" Grimm is Jewish. The Hulk is Roman Catholic.
Adherents.com takes superheroes' religious beliefs seriously and documents its conclusions in great length.
The site's only major drawback is the difficulty in searching for the superhero you want, but comics fans will find it well worth the effort. With superheroes set to swarm movie screens this summer (Thor, Green Lantern, Captain America and others), the site is a particular bonus for comics fans.
