On Mars, J'onn J'onzz was regarded as the greatest warrior of the Green Martians. He started a family with his wife M'yri'ah after the birth of their daughter, K'hym, the Martian race was nearly obliterated by J'onn's twin Ma'alefa'ak. Through a mishap, J'onn J'onzz was teleported to Earth and was forced to adapt to humanity. He became a police detective named John Jones and helped found the Justice League as Martian Manhunter.
After the arrest of the Royal Flush Gang, Martian Manhunter returned to his John Jones guise and was taken to an impromptu birthday dinner by his friends and co-workers. Jones, however, was distracted by an attractive woman who bought him a soda. The woman turned out to be Ma'alefa'ak and his drink was laced with Magnesium. As a result, Manhunter was lit on fire and left to burn to death. Traditionally methods such as a Carbon Dioxide fire extinguisher and water did nothing to put out the fire. Eventually, Wonder Woman arrived with a cure revealed by Batman, Aluminum Oxide, and injected him. Martian Manhunter had little time to recover as he was the only one with shape shifting powers and safely removed a Kryptonite bullet from Superman. In Manhunter's rematch with Ma'alefa'ak, their battle stumbled near Vandal Savage's rocket launch pad. Martian Manhunter slipped away during lift off but his brother did not.
