Maybe it's nitpicking but I miss the old Martian Manhunter outfit, the blue trunks and swashbuckler boots; it was reminiscent of the old John Carter, Warlord of Mars look.

unless you read the books, then you know the Warlord of Mars look was naked. Unless you were a high ranking warlord, then you wore a breast plate.

I read the books about 30 years ago so forgive me if I don't recall that particularly salacious detail. But if you look at a lot of the cover art produced on the reprints Carter and Co. are often seen in trunks, breast plate/harness and boots.

yeah, for some reason book publishers don't want to put naked guys wielding swords and ray guns shooting at other naked men with swords and ray guns, while protecting naked women, who also have ray guns.

and when they do, the books typically aren't in the science fiction section.

Though I have seen some John Carter cosplay from the 60s and 70s that got it right. Fan meetups being smaller affairs with more relaxed rules at the time.

This was surprisingly good.

Agreed. I'm a bit biased, as J'onn is my favorite DC character, but I tie this for second best of the Looney Tunes crossovers with the Jonah Hex/Yosemite Sam one.

I kinda want Marvin to be a recurring character now.

Not!Porky Pig's bar from Batman/Elmer Fudd showed up in the most recent Batman annual, so in theory the stuff from the Looney Tunes crossovers could appear again.

To be honest, I think he is enough of an expy that they can use him without worry they need permission first xD

Nice callback to the power J'Onn used to defeat Despero way back in the old Pre-Crisis/Detroit-era League days.

In the seventh scan it looks like J'onn is doing the Kamehameha...

Also I love that he is, indeed, M'arvinn.

I wonder what am I supposed to make of those apostrophes. They're often used for glottal stops, but [dʒʔɔnː] sounds awkward as hell, so in my headcanon it's always been aspiration-like, as in old-fashioned Chinese romanizations. But that doesn't work for [m], and [mʔa] also sounds terrible...

How the fuck are the DC/Looney Tunes crossovers so good?

Also, what the hell is J'onn doing in the regular comics?

He's been MIA since Rebirth, which was remarked upon in a recent Justice League.

But he's due to show up in Metal and the new Justice League event to follow.

It's really hard to read any serious dialogue in Marvin the Martian's voice.
