Comic Book Excerpts:
Heaven

BELOW: Brady exhibited a clearly defined belief in Heaven when he felt forced to kill his zombie-infected teammate.

Angeal hollered over the zombie girl's roars of pain. "She's calling more zombies!"

"We can still save her and get out!" Ace stated. Brady was on his knees, covering his ears from the sound. "Trust me" The words were lost to Brady.

We're all friends even though we just met, but this has to be done. Brady stood up, sword in hand. Sorry, Sam. I hope you watch us from heaven. The Strategist charged at Sam and impaled her through her stomach. We'll be fighting for you.

BELOW: The Wasp: "Thank Heavens": The Wasp is not portrayed as particularly religious, but she appears to have at least some religious sensibility. When she finds herself alive rather than tramples because of a fortuitous gap in the ground, she spontaneously thinks "Thank Heavens the ground here is so uneven!" The phrase "Thank Heavens" or "Thank Heaven" is often used by religiously observant people as an intentional way to avoid taking the Lord's name in vain (one of the Ten Commandments). Is this why the Wasp uses this phrase? Possibly. But this may be more of a linguistic expression borne of a religious background or upbringing rather than a conscious, intentional expression of gratitude to the Divine.
