I don't know that religion is really ignored in comic books. I'd say it turns up at least as much as it would in a regular series of novels or a TV series. Moreso, even.

Other characters whose religions I'm familiar with:

Fire is Catholic
Nuklon is Jewish
Prof. Stein (half of the Firestorm duo--or he used to be, anyway) is Jewish
[More are listed]
