Comic book Catholics

There has recently been some discussion of the use of Manga comic characters to promote vocations at the website Called Today.

Adherents.com gathers information about adherents of different religions. One section has the Religious Affiliation of Comic Book Characters. They found a catholic priest making a cameo appearance in Batman: Dark Night Returns

They also do a list of famous Catholics. Some of these are a bit obvious: I think I knew that GK Chesterton, Leonardo Da Vinci and Galileo were Catholics - but I didn't know about James Cagney, Nicholas Cage and Sean Connery.
