Religiosity of Superheroes
With no thought or research, here are some of my guesses for what religious affiliation some superheroes and their "friends" have.

Superman: Presbyterian -- small town, northeast, mild mannered
Lois Lane: Unchurched -- not sure why I think so.

Spiderman: Catholic -- big city, clean cut, Irish?
Mary Jane: Unchurched -- grew up in a really rough home.

Batman: Episcopal -- gothic
Robin: Unchurched -- always saying Holy this and Holy that.

Why do cleancut superheroes have to find a little bit wild of a girl?

Do you have any thoughts?
