J’onn J’onzz is the Martian Manhunter, a police enforcement officer from Mars who became a police detective and superhero after becoming marooned on land. He is a initiation extremity of the Justice League of America.


Centuries ago on the planet Ma’aleca’andra, the k Martians known as M’yrnn and Sha’sheen gave birth to twin sons. The behave of twins was uncommon among the martian culture, and as such, the foremost of the twins was named J’onn J’onzz, whose name means “ Light to the Light. ” J’onn ‘s brother, however, was born a mutant, bereaved of a Martian ‘s natural ability to communicate telepathically. He was named Ma’alefa’ak, whose name means “ Darkness in the Heart. ” As an pornographic, J’onn became a Manhunter ( patrol officeholder ) and married a martian woman named M’yri’ah. The two established a modest home plate for themselves beneath the windswept martian plains and gave birth to a daughter named K’hym. Years passed, and J’onn ‘s buddy Ma’alefa’ak grew to despise everything about martian polish. In an ambitious attempt to commit all-out genocide against his own people, he engineered a contagious virus known as H’ronmeer ‘s Curse. The virus reacted to telepathic energy and carried from one martian to the future whenever they elected to use their psionic powers. The plague responded to a Martian ‘s natural concern of fuel, causing them psychosomatic stress then intense, that their bodies and minds would literally burst into flare. J’onn desperately tried to keep his wife and daughter from using their mental gifts, but they were unable to do so, and thus ultimately contracted the virus. K’hym was the inaugural to experience the symptoms, and M’yri’ah followed soon after. J’onn was anguished as he watched his family burning to death before his very eye. The injury of the event shattered his mind, and about drove him brainsick .

Welcome to Earth

interim, on the planet Earth, a manque scientist named Dr. Saul Erdel developed a transmitter machine based upon ancient Martian technology. Seeking to make contact with extraterrestrial life, he aimed his device towards the vicinity of Mars and activated it. The vector beam streaked across both space and time, striking the martian Manhunter at a point in time respective centuries before Erdel would even be born. The beam brought J’onn back to Erdel ‘s natural prison term earned run average, where he collapsed on the ground outside of the doctor ‘s Colorado testing ground. Erdel brought the distraught Martian at heart and attempted to nurse him back to health. The anguish of J’onn ‘s genial department of state created a psychic attachment between the two, and Erdel became aware of the events that took place on Mars. In an effort to heal J’onn ‘s judgment, Erdel used the genial connect to fabricate a newly history for the Martian. He created a back-story inspired by the writings of celebrated science fiction novelists such as Ray Bradbury and Edgar Rice Burroughs. finally, J’onn ‘s sanity was restored, and he was prepared to function in this strange, new world. Erdel put the theme into his head that he should become a bang-up supporter, and thus J’onn adopted the desperate guise of the martian Manhunter. When J’onn shapeshifted into a human-like form, Erdel was shocked and suffered a heart attack that killed him. As he was dying, Erdel asked J’onn for forgiveness for making him a prisoner of Earth. [ 2 ] It was by and by revealed that Mars was dead when J’onn was taken, killed by a mental blight intentionally started by his brother Ma’alefa’ak. He took the identity of the Bronze Wraith, and fought crime with the Justice Experience. [ 3 ]

John Jones, Police Detective

J’onn was able to use his powers to fit into homo society. He adopted a human appearance and called himself “ John Jones. ” He became a police detective in the city of Middleton. [ 2 ] For a long prison term, he worked as a policeman while secretly using his foreigner powers to solve cases and help oneself people. Some time later, the universe of the martian Manhunter was by chance revealed. From this point on, J’onn stopped hiding his superhero feats from the world, but he kept his double-identity as John Jones secret. It was at this time that he began to publicly appear in his green-skinned android shape. [ 4 ] He subsequently acquired police matron Diane Meade as his partner, [ 5 ] and an pet Zook who helped him solve cases. [ 6 ] J’onn J’onzz was one of the founding members of the Justice League of America. [ 7 ] J’onn ‘s career as a police detective was ended by the Idol-Head of Diabolu. This evil statue expelled a deadly mottle. John Jones saved a child from the cloud, but in doing so he was engulfed by it. His fellow policemen believed he must have died. J’onn took this as an opportunity to abandon his double life. He allowed the patrol department ( even Diane Meade ) to believe he had died, and as the martian Manhunter he even attended his own funeral. [ 8 ]

martian Manhunter Without John Jones ; Justice League of America

After this, J’onn J’onzz and Zook began a bay to combat the Idol Head of Diabolu, which they ultimately managed to destroy. [ 9 ] J’onn then briefly assumed the alias “ Marco Xavier ” in order to infiltrate the international crime trust known as marauder. [ 10 ] J’onn served as a regular penis of the Justice League of America. When the master Justice League of America disbanded, J’onn became the drawing card of the new “ Justice League Detroit “. [ 11 ] He remained with that team until it, excessively, disbanded. [ 12 ]

Justice League International

J’onn was one of the founding members of the Justice League International. [ 13 ] J’onzz revealed that his familiar appearance is not his true martian form but a “ compromise ” between his true form and a human appearance – explain that his real class is private and that, tied on Mars, his “ public ” appearance was the familiar version. In addition to serving in the League under his own identity, he besides joined ( under duress ) as “ Bloodwynd. ”


The martian Manhunter is the most acknowledge hero in the Southern Hemisphere, and he maintains a number of unlike secret identities, many of them outside the United States. however, following two incidents ( in which John Jones separates from the Martian Manhunter ), he decides to focus on his original human identity and retire the others. later, the martian Manhunter attempts to conquer his fear of fire and makes a deal with a flame-wielding villainess named Scorch, who wants J’onzz ‘ telepathic aid in dealing with her own mental issues. 20,000 years ahead, an highly dangerous race of beings called “ the Burning ” caused boastfully fires to help themselves reproduce asexually. In order to prevent the Burning from destroying much of the population, the Guardians of the Universe split the species into the green Martians and the White Martians, changed their generative behavior, and instilled in them a fear of displace. When the Martian Manhunter confronts his concern of fire, he reverts into one of the ancient creatures and changes his name to Fernus. His familial memory identifies threats such as Vandal Savage, who killed one of the Burning on ancient earth. This same genetic memory besides makes Fernus hate the Green Lantern, due to his association with the Oans.

Fernus increases the military capability of the powers he inherits from J’onn : For example, he can phase other beings quite than merely himself, and he has access to pyrokinesis. He can breathe fire of such saturation that it harms Scorch, who had previously been thought immune to damage from arouse. Fernus ‘ frightful military capability besides allows him to dominate the Justice League in battle flush without his martian telepathic powers. He can besides heal himself from about total end within seconds. The Justice League finally defeats Fernus by re-enlisting Plastic Man, who is immune to Fernus ‘ psychic powers and has superior shape-changing abilities. It is implied that Batman recruited Plastic Man to the Justice League as a balance in subject the Martian Manhunter always got out of see. After destroying Fernus, J’onn grieves for Scorch, who had fallen into a coma, and with whom he had fallen in love. J’onn late tells Superman that his antipathy to fire has changed : he is immediately invulnerable to flames unless they are “ flames of rage ” or of some other “ psychic significance. “ [ citation needed ]

He joins the assemble heroes in the department of defense of Metropolis from the combine might of the universe ‘s super-villains and in the battle against Superboy-Prime. In the follow months, J’onn masqueraded as U.S. Secretary of State Kakalios in an attempt to bring down Checkmate. He was successful in eliminating it as a U.S. government-controlled agency. however, it soon reorganized under the United Nations. One of the most dramatic changes in J’onn ‘s life occurred a short time later. While operating under the guise of William Dyer, he discovered that several Green Martians had crash-landed on worldly concern and were being held by high-level members of the Defense Department. One of the Martians, Roh’kar, broke free of his confinement and made contact with the martian Manhunter. The union was bittersweet, however, as a brainwashed assassin ended Roh’kar ‘s life with a weapon designed to target Martians.

He established a safe family for them and pledged to do everything in his power to keep them safe from government examination .

Former Powers
  • Divine Empowerment: J’onn was temporary gifted with half of the power of the Spectre by Strega, he gave the power back to his owner when he understood that no living being was meant to be that powerful.[36]
    • Necromancy: J’onn was able to bring back to life the bodies of the whole Martian race, but was unable to give them back their souls, making them mindless drones.



  • Vulnerability to Fire: The Martian Manhunter has a psychosomatic fear of fire. The Guardians of the Universe have built in a fear of fire when they first confronted the Burned (Martians). Exposure to fire, causes him to lose his powers, and in the case of extreme fire, to lose his control over his biomorphic form. The Manhunter is more vulnerable in this form and can take damage in this vulnerable state.
  • Chocoholism: It has also been suggested that something within J’onn’s physiology makes him addicted to the chemicals used in the Earth snack, Chocos. Withdrawal symptoms include violent bursts of rage and loss of intellect. However, these claims have never been accurately substantiated, and may even be false.[55]


  • Kuru pendant: The Martian Manhunter owns one of two Kuru pendants. The pendant acts as a repository of ancient Martian lore and knowledge. The second pendant belonged to the late Martian, Roh’kar. J’onn is also known to carry a bag of Chocos with him for snacking. During the Justice League International years, J’onn is shown to be obsessed with Chocos, partially due to Captain Marvel’s influence.

early Aliases

This section contains a list of alternate identities that the Martian Manhunter has used during his time on Earth (incomplete) .

  • Hino Rei, his female alter ego in Japan, is an obvious pun with Rei Hino, Sailor Mars.
  • In his earliest appearances from 1955 to 1959, the Martian Manhunter was drawn completely hairless, with a beetle-brow forehead and shaded eyes. But throughout most of the Silver Age, he was drawn less as an alien and more as a human with green skin, with standard human eyes and dark eyebrows. This humanized look lasted for several years, until the late 1970s when he returned to his original beetle-brow appearance.
  • In some of his earliest adventures, the Martian Manhunter possessed the ability to see into the near future.[34] However, there have been scant examples of this, and it is no longer a power that he possesses in modern continuity. By his own account, the Martian Manhunter cannot perceive the future.
  • In Pre-Crisis, when a group of evil Martians led by General Blanx destroyed the surface of Mars, forcing all the good Martians to flee in a rocket, J’onn accompanied them into space, leaving the Justice League.[70] This pre-Crisis story does not depict the inhabitants of Mars in a manner consistent with how they would be portrayed post-Crisis.
