The New DC: Martian Manhunter #1
Martian Manhunter #1 (DC Comics)
Rob Williams (w) Eddy Barrows (a)
Finally the Martian Manhunter gets his own title after a gap of several years and this time set in the new "converged" DC universe. J'onzz J'onzz is the last surviving Martian who has made the Earth his home. In prior incarnations was a central figure in the Justice League of America, now the Justice League, his place taken by Cyborg for diversity reasons.
But what if everything you knew about yourself was a lie?
And how are these hundreds of terrorist attacks across the globe connected to your heritage? Are you truly the last?
Are you really far from being a superhero and really a weapon of mass destruction?
This opening chapter raises all these questions and more. For long time DC fan boys the seeming appearance of the "White Martians" will come as no surprise. That much was obvious half way through the story.
And just who is Mr Biscuit who we see in the opening pages? What is his connection to our favourite Martian.
Worth reading. Rush down to your comic store and get a copy now. This series is going to be a good one!
