You may be right. Isn't he celibate?

Maybe I'm just jealous, but I think he just wouldn't have a prayer!

Dealing with all radioactive radon in caves he's more than likely sterile so why bother with women? Explains the "young lad initiate" dressed in tights.

I am really concerned about the religiosity or lack thereof among superheroes and comic-book characters!

Take Superman, for example, I have never seen him enter a church or mosque! You have to agree he's not Jewish; after all, a rabbi could never circumcise him...

And Porky Pig certainly isn't Jewish or Moslem.

Mickey Mouse is not a church mouse!

And Hell Boy, well!

Take the green Hornet; all you know about him is he's an environmentalist.

And Daffy Duck? I think he's a Peking duck - probably Confucian!

Then there's Goofy!

Ahhhh,,,
The archetypical struggle between good (Popeye) and evil (Brutus). How very Zoroastrian! But, do we want a spinach-eating, pipe-smoking, grammatically-incorrect sailor as our children's role model? Tsk! Tsk, I say!

Popeye: "I yam what I yam!"

God: "I Am that I Am" ( Hebrew : אהיה אשר אהיה‎,)

VanIsle, Come to think of it, I had never made that connection before! Do you think...???

Besides that - Yams are very healthy!

Popeye had an addiction and has since gone through rehab. Olyve Oyl now has a colostomy bag from Crohns from anorexia sourced laxative abuse although she still suffers from the eotional guilt of cheating on Popeye with Wimpy while both were being treated at the eating disorder clinic, bearing child and having to give him away to a another comic writer where he grows up to obviously be Jughead Jones from Riverdale. Jughead too has an illegitimate son, James Jones ( yes that Jim Jones) with Big Ethyl which is unknowingly his sister which Popeye and Olyive also had to give up after Popeye's fatal battle with TB.


What a sad, sad ending to otherwise good performers.

Petros, you raise an important issue! Popeye's girl may well have been anorexic. As you know, olive oil is a laxative.

Are you suggesting that you know that Petros uses a lot of olive oil? I thought he worked with minerals suggesting the use of mineral oil instead. Does that bring us back to Superman and kryptonite???

Hold on here. Wasn't Popeye's arch-enemy a big guy called Bluto....

His real arch-enemy was his spinach addiction.

Forgive me, Juan, for I have sinned! You are correct. I was out of character (comic-book character, that is!)

I wonder if Aphrodite and Artemis and Apollo and all them were Greek Orthodox.
Is the Silver Surfer a Unitarian Universalist church member?
