The Religious Affiliation of Comic Book Character
Angelica Jones
Firestar
of the New Warriors, Avengers

Firestar is the codename of Angelica Jones, a mutant with heat- and flame-based powers, including the power to fly.

Angelica Jones was raised in a Catholic family and was apparently a fairly conscientious Catholic, although overt references to her religious affiliation were rare. Firestar has not appeared regularly in Marvel comics in recent years, and it is unclear whether she is still regarded as a practicing Catholic.

I know a lot of characters are Jewish, so I was wondering who is officially Catholic?

Angelica Jones - Firestar - was Catholic at one point but not sure she's still practicing.

...Probably the best comic you could find to figure out who believes in a god or a god, or have deep faith in God or a god would be:

Infinity Crusade
The Goddess uses the heroes' faith and belief in gods and such to recruit heroes.

Here are a list of Avengers who are "believers" so are recruited by the Goddess:
Living Lightning
Black Knight
Hercules
Sersi
Invisible Woman
Spider-Man
Quicksilver
Wonder Man
Captain America
Thor
Crystal
Moondragon
USAgent
Scarlet Witch
Moon Knight

The so-called "non-believers" that the Goddess didn't choose:
Vision
Mr. Fantastic
Thing
She-Hulk
Rage
Hulk
Iron Man
Spider-Woman II
Firestar
Darkhawk
Beast (although Beast claims to believe in a god, but Vision counters with "Obviously because your belief in a supreme being is not as deeply felt nor well known as the others.")
Quasar (which was stated in his own book)
