So it seems Hitch has fallen behind, which means #5 will be a Martian Manhunter story written by Matt Kindt.

Will this shed some light on J'onn's past history with the League at last?

>This issue is now written by Matt Kindt and Rob Williams, with art by Philip Tan and Jason Paz and a cover by Meghan Hetrick. In a story that hints at upcoming events, J’onn J’onzz must face an alien serial killer.


What could upcoming events be?

That's a pretty cool villain design.

>What could upcoming events be?
Didn't Didio or somebody say there'd be some big stuff with Martian Manhunter in 2016? Maybe there'll be a big crossover or something
>>
>>77558667
That villain is Thoth from the Martian Manhunter backup to Johns' JLA. I wonder how that's supposed to square with the new origin in J'onn's solo series.
>>
>>77558563
Jesus motherfucking Christ Hitch, so much for this being your dream job and you can't even keep up with your deadlines.

But a Martian Manhunter story will do, I'm hoping for some interactions between him and his fellow leaguers especially Aquaman.

Correct. Supposedly 2016 will have a good amount of Martian stuff. Like M'gann appearing, etc.

Thank god.

Art kinda looks really iffy, but I want more Martian Manhunter stories. Also main JLA story is so damn boring that a change is nice.

Yeah she's mentioned in the Solicit for the feb issue of Martian Manhunter actually. So I expect we'll see her appear in that book in the coming months if she hasn't already in some weird way.

Then apparently all the Martiany stuff and characters will play a big role in some event according to Didio.

Wait why is Shazam already there?

When is this taking place?
>>
>>77560047
How racists actually feel about Cyborg in the Justice League in real life.

(although he's shit because he's Cyborg but still).
>>
>>77560094
Continuity error strikes again.
>>
>>77560094
Story > Continuity

Also it's clearly in "the present", since J'onn is working with the League, which he wasn't before Forever Evil
>>
>>77558563

DC seems to be trying to push J'onn and his mythos now, apparently he's gonna be one of the main players in a big alien event in 2016. Miss Martian is also getting reintroduced soon and will play a part in that.

Odd considering his book is kind of underpreforming.
>>
>>77558596
Christ, what an autist.
>>
Also, would have been that hard to have a fill in that was actually about the JLA? A nice little one off about off hours or something.
>>
>>77560222

I don't get what J'onn's status with the League is. Like the Martian Manhunter book makes him out to be part of it now and good friends with Superman in the first few issues but other books don't.

Is he like a part timer or something? Guy they call on when they need some more help?

>>77560268
M-maybe Jaime will come back and not be trash?
>>
>>77560161

Story trumps continuity though. Even if casual readers who read multiple books will still be left wondering "Wait. What happens when?"
>>
>Hitch has fallen behind

and water is wet
>>
>>77560372

O god Jaime. Yeah what the fuck DID happen to him. He just vanished once Threshold I think it was ended.
>>
>>77560268
Are any DC books except the Bat ones or ones Johns is writing, even doing good in sales? I hope they add him back to the JL though.
>>
>>77560332
He's on JLU now, which is sort of the Minor League, but has a better relationship with the "real" Justice League than JLI or JLA did.
>>
>>77560268

All I'll say for Miss Martian is that she's very lucky to get reintroduced in Martian Manhunter and NOT Teen Titans.
>>
>>77560598
He's not on JLU anymore.
>>
>>77560621
They replaced her with a qt Durlan girl in TT, she'd be redundant there anyway
>>
>>77558613

Isn't Death Valley in California, not Nevada?
>>
>>77560621
Is it when this book is very likely not gonna be around by the end of next year?
>>
>>77560634
Well then who the hell knows.
>>
>>77560660
Death Valley itself is in California, the national park surrounding it is in both states
>>
I guess te new design today isnt permanent then

Also
>poster yesterday posts rumor of Jon being BvS mind controlled villain
>2016 as an MM themed event
What if

>>77560676
>implying MM wont just get folded into JL after the event
>>
>>77560975
I was talking about Miss Martian here. She either goes into limbo or Teen Titans, surely.
>>
>>77560268
>Odd considering his book is kind of underpreforming.
That's probably why they want to push him a bit.

They can't just cancel every book that's underperforming because that would be cancelling at least 6 titles at issue 12 in one go.
If they have an event this summer or even just a crossover they could easily tie in MMH and raise the sales some to keep the book safe for another arc.

Though I will say a martian/alien/space event would be the best to do with raising sales is their goal. Superman, Starfire, MMH, GL, Omega Men, Supergirl if they would let her have one, etc could all benefit some.
>>
>>77563488

Why DOESN'T Supergirl have a book when she JUST got a TV series, that seems weird.
>>
>>77565482
Yeah, you'd think she'd get one of those short tie-in series like Flash and Arrow did.
>>
>>77560161
>caring
Dude I'm pretty sure there's therapy for autism.
>>
>>77566133
Hey, I'm just calling it how I see it. No autism here.
>>
>>77565720
Those tv tie ins probably didn't do all that well since they didn't get a relaunch
>>
>>77566173
>Cares about continuity when DC specifically said "Fuck continuity"
>Not autism
>>
>>77566205
Loose continuity doesn't mean no continuity. They still care about it. The Superman and Batman lines are a testament to that statement.
>>
>>77560222
the present of what? isn't depowered Superman and grungy Hal the current present.
>>
>>77566449
It says on the beginning that this on the past, my bet is that this is after the Amazon virus and before darkseid war, or even after darkseid war since that is also in the past
