An exploration of the different incarnations of Batman and the Martian Manhunter
Article by Brandon the Hero Guy
There have been many interpretations of Bruce Wayne (Batman) meeting Jhonn Jonnz (Martian Manhunter), especially throughout DC’s animation and they’ve all had a different take on the characters. These two have been depicted as the main detectives in DC, especially with Manhunter since he was a cop on his home world of Mars.As a former member of the League, she is known to be an incredibly lethal fighter. Onyx is also a mentor of Cassandra Cain and was an ally of Batman in the comics. Onyx would be amazing to see in a Batfleck movie even as a cameo, and possibly being part of Justice League 2 for the Knightmare Timeline.
And one of the main things I noticed from the animations is that in each interpretation Bruce has a mistrust of Martian Manhunter. It’s completely understandable considering the things that he’s seen, but in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, which is the main interpretation of these characters, he isn’t surprised seeing a Martian considering the fact that he’s fought and teamed up with a Kryptonian, a Demi-God, Metahuman, a Cybernetic humanoid, a Speedster and an Atlantean, so at this point Bruce is all in and it’s amazing to see these two finally interact in the DCEU. We need the Snyderverse continue on especially after seeing the Martian Manhunter who is just as powerful as Superman himself and his feats are incredibly unparalleled so this exciting to see Jhonn finally debut in this epic CB feature you can tell the Snydercut took a lot of inspiration from DC’s animated shows and films which the original DCEU line up was doing basically borrowing aspects of DC Animation notably Justice League TAS and Unlimited along with JL War’s movie which shows that the original line up wasn’t rushing but actually using material from its animated predecessors.
