PANEL OF THE BRIGHTEST DAY #21: Martian Manhunter Believes In The Power Of Hugs

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say for my buck Martian Manhunter has been the best 'revamp' of Brightest Day. Don't get me wrong, Firestorm, Hawkman and Aquaman all have been set up pretty well too, but the backbone of the Justice League has never been in a better spot to stand on his own than now.

While other heroes like The Atom do get the odd look in, with so many great moments, shape-changes and splash pages of old J'onn J'onzz, it would be a pretty criminal act to gift my spoiler-free teaser panel from Brightest Day #21 to anyone else.

Plus check out that killer cover by Gary Frank!

Hawkman, Hawkgirl and Aquaman have already fallen before the white ring. Will M&M be next? - here's where you find out folks!


  1. *sighs* I love the Martian. I need to get a stuffed on for my bed. He can sit next to Chthulu. And I totally, completely and utterly agree with you Dan.

  2. Thanks Random! Another think I like at the moment in MM changing shape into non-human forms. It's just something that seemed bizarre ages ago that he only really took the guise of other humans.

    Here's a dude who knows other species from other planets and all he will do is turn into Joe Blogg's to sneak past security? What was next - a table?

    Now he really is showing just how cool he is with a creative team ready to play that up to it's fullest.
