The Kuru Pendant

"Every Martian of age had one-- received after completion of the Journey of Souls. A spiritual conduit of sorts-- it connected the past to the present. A massive memory core, downloading our ancestral memories into the consciousness of all who came next. The medallion was the last vestigial trace of a people whose history was once preserved orally-- but who had developed an ability for telepathy that became our greatest achievement-- and our ultimate curse when a plague annihilated our race, one thought at a time."

-J'Onn J'Onzz

First Appearance: DCU: Brave New World #1 (August, 2006)

I'd really like to see someone like Morrison or Johns take all the random Martian cosmologies and fit them together. On second that thought, perhaps this is a more appropriate forum; I do recall you had a piece on the holiday mentioned in JLA/Cyberforce. "Martian Mythos" maybe?

"Martian Detectionary" has been the keyword tag for that kind of stuff for several years now. I keep meaning to create a menu and permanent button, but who has time? Maybe after I get out of school.
