There are also alot of great issues of the What If series. All depends on what you're into. I usually get the issues that pertain to the X-Men. Also there was a great 2 issues Marvel story a coulple of years ago called Ruins. It's amazing. Really messed up.
Those are two pretty good picks. My first though goes to "The Man Without Fear", Daredevil but I think his lack of sight would make it difficult for him. Magneto I think could wield a ring pretty well.
Religion is a waste of time IMO. Not worth arguing about it. Let folks worship Jesus, Mohammed, Satan, Felix the Cat, whatever they want. Or not worship anything like me. I don't care what happens to me after I'm dead. I know that I'm a good person. I don't steal, rape, and murder. I shouldn't have to talk to some (or chick) in the sky to prove I'm a good person in order to go t happy cloud land. Again, this is just me. Do what you want and don't push it on me, I won't push my beliefs on you in return.
