shalom, mr. grimm!
I haven't read comic books a lot lately--well, I just don't buy new ones; I do read some of the hundreds I have already accumulated--but the just-permalinked Meryl Yourish referred me to an article indicating that Ben Grimm (The Thing of Fantastic Four fame), is Jewish. The article she quotes cites the wonderful moment where the fact is revealed:
This month, [Fantastic Four editor Tom] Brevoort published a story that takes Ben back to his old stomping grounds and, for the first time, reveals his religious roots. "You're really Jewish?" asks the villain of the piece. "There a problem with that?" replies the Thing. "No," says the bad guy, looking into that craggy, orange puss. "It's just... you don't look Jewish."
