Having been totally fixated on the early noughties Cartoon Network series Justice League as a child, I have a vital inquiry concerning the new film. Why in the world did they not welcome J’onn J’onzz, a.k.a. Martian Manhunter to join the party?!
Presently I know what you may be thinking. Who is Martian Manhunter? He’s simply the coolest, most underestimated hero of all time! Also I can demonstrate it. Indeed, even from the start J’onn is simply top-of-the-range hero material.
Furthermore that is before we even have any familiarity with his superpowers…
Epic Shapeshifting Ability
The Martian can shapeshift, and really shapeshifts more often than not to take on a more humanoid appearance so individuals will trust him more. Believe it or not, he in a real sense changes his structure just so individuals will be more agreeable around him. What a top person.
Additionally, when it’s all said and done, he isn’t hesitant to transform into an immense outsider snake-thing and bring down a few miscreants.
Awesome Mind-Reading Powers
J’onn can speak with individuals clairvoyantly, and he utilizes this to accomplish non-compromises with a portion of the League’s most risky enemies. Or then again, assuming that fizzles, he digs into their inner mind and harms them mentally. Both are fine.
He Wins The Prize For Saddest History
J’onn is the last one standing from his home planet. He watched Mars consume alongside the entirety of his loved ones. The awfulness of this can be communicated in one basic condition:
(Batman’s starting point + Superman’s) x a doggy being drop-kicked into some spiked metal = Martian Manhunter
Then, at that point, after all that he actually gets overlooked for the Justice League film. Staggering. Hasn’t he adequately experienced? See Batman, not every person responds to the demise of their family by transforming into Broody McBroodface.
He Remains In The Watchtower
While Superman and co. are on Earth being adored as divine beings and nonchalantly obliterating downtown areas, J’onn discreetly continues ahead with desk work and coordinated operations from the Watchtower (Justice League HQ). Since for J’onn it’s not necessary to focus on greatness, everything without a doubt revolves around aiding individuals.
His Incredible Social Awkwardness
As somebody who isn’t awesome at Public Display of Affection, I love the manner in which J’onn is the Justice League’s most abnormal hugger. However he actually figures out how to make it seem warm. He would generally rather avoid consideration even a tad, take a gander at how he reacts to a lot of individuals expressing gratitude toward him for returning a lost young lady free from any and all harm. Fwoop he’s outta there! No awards for the Martian please, he simply needs to help.
He Doesn’t Tell You What To Do
The perfect example of this is in the episode “Tabula Rasa,” in which the League has to deal with Professor Ivo’s Android (A.M.A.Z.O). The Android is capable of absorbing the powers of everyone in the league, and is manipulated by Lex Luthor into fighting them. Instead of charging headlong into battle like his bozo co-workers, J’onn allows the Android to absorb his mind-reading abilities, thereby giving it the chance to see Luthor’s treachery for itself.
