The Religions of Comic Book Characters

The following is a link giving you all the world's comic book heroes with religious affiliations.  I've particularly copied it so that you can see the Eastern Orthodox comic book characters:

Oh great and powerful Elektra, pray for us  :angel: :P
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

It's not surprising that Lara Croft was left out, as her comic book appearances are rather sporadic (I'm aware of two adventures of her own and at least one crossover with Witchblade), but her background points strongly towards High Church Anglicanism. :)
