We wonder about their strengths, weaknesses, and passions. We wonder how they'd work together (bring on The Avengers!) and who would win a fight. What we don't often wonder is how religion plays into the whole affair. It's natural that this aspect of the superhero world doesn't get much mainstream play. A whole movie could be centered just on how god can exist in a world of unstoppable heroes and galaxies full of life forms.

BoingBoing just shared the above image, which sees Spider-Man, Superman, the Hulk, and even Wolverine partaking in prayer. The image is a cropped, and higher-res version of "Superhero Sholat," which has our favorite heroes barefoot and bending their heads for an Indonesian Muslim prayer ritual. Of course, this is nothing more than an artistic intermingling of comic icons and religion, but it's far from the only connection.
