The Religious Affiliation of Comic Book Character
(also known as "Alchemist")
of the Legion of Super Heroes
From email sent by Dan'l Danehy-Oakes, 16 March 2006:
I notice that your Big List only mentions one member of the "Legion of Super-Heroes." Several others have pretty clear religious leanings of one sort or another...
Element Lad (Jan Arrah; a/k/a "Alchemist") is a "spiritual seeker." He practices the spirituality of his home planet (Trom) intensely, partly because he is its only survivor.
