Sometimes, comic book writers talk about a certain character's religious beliefs, or make a religious figure a plot device (Superman for Tomorrow (priest), Daredevil: Born Again (his mom)). For example, right now I'm reading the first arc of the second volume of Daredevil created by Smith, Quesada, and Palmiotti. I love Daredevil, but this first arc (probably because its focus is on the antichrist) keeps referencing Matt's Catholic heritage, and it seriously bothers me. Daredevil's one of my favorite characters, but because I am atheist, Smith's emphasis on Daredevil facing his religious beliefs turns me away.
I love Thor and Asgard and Orion and the New Gods and Wonder Woman's Greek Gods, but talking about Christianity in Daredevil, or Islam in Green Lantern (Simon Baz), affects my reading negatively.
What do you guys think?
