The Religious Affiliation of Comic Book Characters

"If people can't stand cartoons about religion, they've got a problem." —Frank Miller, author of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns; Daredevil; Sin City; etc." (28 February 2006)

This was a fun find. Some seem fairly obvious (Thor, Superman), but there are twists and turns and real evidence. It's very interesting.

Although that page says there is no alphabetical listing, there's this:
