The Religion of Influential Comic Book Superheroes
Billkozy on 04/14/2008
|This quiz will focus on what are perhaps the 10 most influential super-heroes in comic book culture. Specifically the focus of the text here will revolve around the religion of these fictional characters. For the most part comic book publishers and writers don't employ religion very much in a character's backstory; it's a fairly taboo area, especially in mainstream superhero comics. In fact, some might argue, that comic books show an unrealistic lack of attention toward their characters' religions. But perhaps this is simply a tactic to not alienate fans. |
However, that being said, if one pores over the mounds of material that exist surrounding many of these characters, one can find clues and references here and there that add up to determining what some of these super-heroes' religious beliefs are. Some supporting evidence of these particular religious affiliations will be cited here for the likes of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Spider-man, Captain America, Captain Marvel, Plastic-Man, The Incredible Hulk, The Green Lantern, and The Silver Surfer.
The questions will either ask you to identify each character's religion, or will mention what their religion is and then just ask you a little something else more trivia-like about the character.
