Possible Opponents[]


J'onn Jonzz is an extraterrestrial humanoid from the planet Mars at a time of racial war between his Green Martian brothers and the White Martians. Though J'onn joined the cause to protect his family, the "The Martian Holocaust" greatly decimated both the races to the point of extinction as he inadvertently teleported to Earth by Dr. Saul Erdel. The shock of J'onn's sudden appearance causes Erdel to die from a heart attack, forcing the Martian to assume Dr. Erdel's identity and understand about 1950s human society through television while biding his time for his people to save him. But J'onn would have decades to wait and eventually accepting that Mars is now devoid of intelligent life, creating an identity as Middletown detective John Jones in the present day and becoming one of the founding members of the Justice League
