real to believers in God) and Jesus Christ (who is even real to some
atheists, only as an historical figure/humanitarian rather than as an

My problem with the site came in the religious category of two
characters. Green Arrow's religion was listed as "liberal communist"
(those whirring sounds you hear are Marx and Engels spinning in their
graves, to hear communism called a religion). J. Jonah Jameson's
religion was listed as "hating Spider-Man" (and, I suppose, Jameson
fills the role of the Pope in that religion).
