As for 'atheist', writers have always avoided ascribing religion to him like the plague lest it diminish his universality; if it's ever brought up, it's usually stated that he's big on Rao, the Kryptonians' god.
In fact, if one had to assign a religion to Superman, wouldn't he be jewish?
Why would he be Jewish? Because his creators were? Where's the logic in that?
My point being, in reaction to those who automatically assume that Supes and other major heroes are apparently Christian/Protestant and in accordance with American values, that that does not necessarily have to be the case. It is an opinion, not a canonical fact. To them I say please prove that Supes, in his original raised in an orphanage form (because apparently altering aspects of canonical characters is heresy), is not jewish.
