The Martian Manhunter is a Martian who took on Earth as his adopted home and became a super hero then later a member of the Justice League. He was eager to assimilate some of Earth's culture and is currently trying to develop a sense of humor. Superman and Wonder Woman enlisted Martian Manhunter's help against Calythos of the Brothers Djinn. As they hoped, Calythos stole Manhunter's powers, namely invisibility, and his weakness against fire. Calythos grabbed Manhunter and burned him but was unable to continue with using a volcano to decimate the planet. Calythos fell to the ground in fear and released Parasite. Manhunter read Calythos' mind and learned the other djinn were named Uthool, Nyorlath, Rath, and Abnegazar. He saw Superman was neutralizing the volcano with his frost breath and noted that was "one cool volcano." Batman admitted he was the one to ask if that joke was funny. Manhunter was on Mars during the attack of the Hudson Nuclear Power Plant on Earth.

Martian Manhunter was part of the Bravo Squad sent to the United Nations Building to back up Batman, Superman, and Stargirl against Gorilla Grodd. Mr. Mxyzptlk stole their minds and switched them around. Cyborg was in Martian Manhunter's body and Martian Manhunter was in Firestorm's. Naturally, he freaked out about the fiery nature of Firestorm's body and ran around in a panic. Martian Manhunter attended a meeting at the Watchtower but Wonder Woman called ahead to say she was late because of Bizarro. Manhunter had no clue who he was on account of being away when he first surfaced. Flash briefed him on Bizarro's origins as an imperfect Superman clone. Manhunter inquired if that meant Bizarro was evil. Flash found him to be harmless. They were interrupted by the arrival of Amazo, an android sent to destroy the Justice League. After it tossed Flash into Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter appeared behind Amazo. He shapeshifted into a monster and got Amazo in a bear hug. Amazo copied his powers then phased through him.

Amazo used mind control to immobilize Manhunter then connected with a roundhouse kick, sending him into the floor. The Justice League was saved by Bizarro in a misguided attempt to gain membership.
