This final Silver Age faux Archive Edition features the origin and last emissions from the Diabolu Idol-Head (including one of the best, Iwangis-- Creature King.) The international crime organization Vulture is introduced, as is its faceless leader Mr. V, necessitating J'onn J'onzz's assumption of a new alter ego, playboy Marco Xavier. Most of Professor Arnold Hugo's appearances are here, including my personal favorite, "The Giants Who Slept 1,000,000 Years." Zook appears sporadically, but is out of place as the series' tone shifts. Miller's stories become more grim, action oriented, violent, and skewed toward older readers. Joe Certa's art is more contemporary and sophisticated. All in all though, these are some of the finest (and a few of the foulest) Manhunter from Mars stories by this thirteen year creative team.
