To keep this on topic (sorta), why are most heroes not as religious as they could be? ...the only really religious person that's sane that I recall in DCU is Huntress, and I guess Wonder Woman... Anyone else...?

Black Lightning is a Christian, I believe...

Then there's Maya, a Hindu, and wasn't Thunderlord a Buddhist?

Dr. Light III (Kimiyo Hoshi) seems to know a lot about various religions, but I don't know if she is depicted as having any specific faith herself.
