Conversations on Mars: An Interview with Martian Manhunter's Rob Williams

As a frequent Justice Leaguer, J’onn J’onzz, the Martian Manhunter, is well known to fans of comics and animation. But until his ongoing series was announced last spring, it had been many years since he had anchored his own comic. Now on its fourth issue, Martian Manhunter has been a surreal sci-fi blast, featuring a high-stakes storyline by Rob Williams that finds J’onn straddling the line between hero and villain and powerful, often frightening art by Eddy Barrows, Eber Ferreira and Gabe Eltaeb.

Martian Manhunter

What are our best traits as humans? Our empathy? Our intelligence? Our respect for life and constantly striving to do right? It’s ironic, then, that within the DC Universe, very few people embody those very human traits quite as well as J’onn J’onzz, the Martian Manhunter.

A former police officer and family man on his home planet of Mars, J’onn’s life was shaped by great tragedy after witnessing horrific fires that engulfed and destroyed his people and planet—leaving him the lone survivor of his race. Grieving for his family and world, J’onn made Earth his new residence, quickly becoming one of the universe’s most powerful protectors and a key asset for the JLA.

Possessing a unique set of powers and abilities, Martian Manhunter rivals even Superman when it comes to his capabilities. Incredible strength, flight, shape-shifting, invisibility, telepathy, telekinesis, extensive wisdom, powerful optic blasts… Martian Manhunter is a force to be reckoned with. Yet for all of his power and wisdom, this near-immortal is still troubled by that which destroyed his world—fire. Though it continues to haunt him, he has learned to channel his fear and transform it into resilience, one of mankind’s greatest traits. Shaped by tragedy and driven by a desire to prevent his planet’s fate from happening to Earth, Martian Manhunter continues to prove that there’s much we can learn from this uniquely human hero.

The shape of things to come

It's been a long journey for the Martian Manhunter since his revival, including an entire lifetime of false happiness on a rejuvenated Mars. But now the veil is lifted from J'onn's eyes, and they're filled with tears of rage. It's time to settle things with D'kay, but when given the choice between a new Mars and Earth, J'onn has to ask himself... Where is my real home?
