The Martian Manhunter is more of a cold warrior than the regular kind. I suppose that comes with stealth powers and being stranded within a culture not your own. If they hadn't wiped out Diana Prince's Pre-Crisis history, I imagine he'd have a lot of notes to compare with Wonder Woman on that front. J'Onn did soldier up on the cartoon front, waging a losing war to save his species on Justice League, and in the DC One Million future, he was meant to spend over a thousand years protecting planets from the Clanetary System and the Swarm. Those are pretty fantastic circumstances, though.
Luke of El Jacone's Comic Book Bunker and Being Carter Hall would like to take advantage of Veterans Day 2012 to launch #WarComicsMonth, a trending topic on Twitter and Google+ spotlighting stories about fighting forces. I've offered my own synopsis for the Sgt. Rock/Johnny Cloud/Haunted Tank teamp-up The Brave and the Bold #52 (February/March 1964) at DC Bloodlines, and hope you'll take this opportunity to expand your reading out of the spandex set.
