Martian Manhunter Vol 2 issue 24 - J'onn goes beserk

And does a very passable impression of the Hulk?



J'onn is recounting to Kyle the (imaginary) time Booster and Beetle hid all of his chocos stash. The rest of the team know what's going on but when J'onn asks them they wuss out of clueing him in (I recognise Guy but who are the females?)

J'onn's sh*t-eating grin is pure gold! It soon disappears though when he discovers there aren't any available packs of chocos within a one mile radius because Beetle and Booster have bought them all...

So much love!

And speaking of Kyle and J'onn, a request! Can anyone please tell me what arc/title/issue this scan is from?

[personal profile] kingrockwell has already kindly suggested Doug Mahnke and Joe Kelly are involved - going on this and the sketchy results of a google search, I think it may be JLA:Obsidian Age? Or am I totally off base? Help! Is Obsidian Age worth getting anyway?

suggested tags - title: martian manhunter, char:martian manhunter/j'onn j'onnz, char:green lantern/kyle rayner, char:green lantern/guy gardner, char:booster gold/michael jon carter, char:blue beetle/ted kord, creator:john ostrander, creator:doug mahnke

While I'm not the world's biggest fan of JLI, this issue features some of my favorite moments with them - especially the bit where J'onn's cookie addiction takes on a corporeal form and begins possessing various team members and causing THEM to crave things. My favorite? Max Lord, who, while under the influence, spouts off one of my favorite lines of all time: "I want Superman to respect me, and Batman to do what I say, and Wonder Woman to... I want Wonder Woman to... Oh, how I want Wonder Woman to!"

I love Tora's baby seals moment.

It's also kinda interesting in that her explanation of it makes perfect sense - if you live up in the frosty, seal-infested northlands with little else around for a food source, you are inevitably going to be eating large amounts of sealflesh as part of your regular diet. Doesn't make it any less funny, of course, but few of these funny lines actually make sense when they're deconstructed.
