DC Animated Movie Universe Wiki

J'onn J'onzz, also known as the Martian Manhunter and John Jones, was a superhero from the planet Mars and the last surviving member of his race. He is currently a member of the Justice League.


Early Life[]

J'onn is the last surviving member of the Martians of Mars, after all his entire race was wiped out by their bitter enemies the White Martians. He eventually traveled to Earth where he integrated into their society and took on the identity of John Jones and became a police detective. J'onn eventually joined the League some time between Justice League vs. Teen Titans and Justice League Dark and He was not involved in Trigon's invasion attempt, possibly because he was in Mars.

Justice League Dark[]

Martian Manhunter was present along with other League members during Superman and Wonder Woman's briefing about arising magical threats all over the world.

The Death of Superman[]

J'onn can be once again seen in the Hall of Justice where the Justice League regrouped to discuss the destruction of the Excalibur space shuttle and the budget constraints for the upcoming year. He then leaves with the other Leaguers except Superman to congratulate the Flash on his planned wedding with Iris West.

The Justice League arrived to stop Doomsday's rampage after it started decimating police units in a town close to Metropolis. J'onn and Aquaman attacked the beast together but Arthur was taken down very easily. J'onn managed to telepathically delve into Doomsday's mind while in phasing state and revealed to Batman that he was a living weapon with zero empathy designed specifically to annihilate large civilizations. He had to ultimately leave his phasing state in an attempt to stop Doomsday from attacking an Injured Batman and this gave the beast the chance to seize and throw him into a gas station. An explosion in the gas station ignited a large fire and sent J'onn to psychic terror due to his weakness to fire, thus defeating him.

J'onn and the remaining League members (except Batman) could be seen mourning the loss of Superman during his funeral.
