  1. Catholic Talk Show, An awesome show. Very interesting.

  2. Aaron Levin says:

    In the same vaine, Look up when Jesus emerges from the crowd of dissenters and helps Ghost Rider ward off Satan.

    Also it came to mind that in the X-Men movie with Night Crawler he is holding a Rosary and reciting Psalm 23.

    Cool stuff! Thanks guys.

    Ok, so I’m a Ghost Rider fan…. probably the only one.
    In the movie Spirit of Vengeance, Johnny Blaze receives Communion from a priest (Idris Elba) and his curse is removed.

    How could you possibly forget Hellboy????? He is the son of the devil who is rescued and raised by a Catholic scientist. He wears a rosary on his arm or belt as a constant reminder of who he now is. It’s his adopted father’s saving him and converting him that makes him the hero he grows into. Definitely my favorite Catholic superhero!

      Marvel & Dc. Hellboy is published by Dark horse

    The punisher is my most favorite Netflix series ever. I didn’t know he is Catholic! I am ordering the punisher comcis now (:

    Great episode! Very timely, too. Just this week I stumbled across a page of religious comics from the golden age and there are quite a lot of Catholic ones. Do a Google search for Comic Book Plus Religious and it should take you there.

  8. Michele says:

    This is amazing! I had no idea and it actually was a good conversation starter with some co workers and myself. Now I’m going to watch the daredevil series on Netflix.

  9. Kristopher says:

    Very cool, great episode. It’s fascinating to see the faith in so many places I hadn’t before. I’d love to see a Marvel series on the Saints now that would be worth collecting haha.

    During 1995 to 2000 DC published Preacher. During the 80’s we had Evangeline, the comic book about a spy nun. In the 90’s we had Avengeline, a fallen angel. So, maybe we can keep going with another comic book show.

    You forgot DC’s Blue Devil

    I (57) blessed a young man’s home (21) with my Mom (84). He was obvious a collector of some vintage superhero art on his walls which mom thought should be all taken down and burned and were anti Catholic at best – Satanic at worst. She was actually quite rude, no matter how I tried to keep her focused on the BLESSING we had come to give this young man. Is there any thing wrong with his collection? Spider-Man/Superman the Hulk…
