The Superhero Book: Martian Manhunter Entry, Part 1

I just checked out "The Superhero Book" (2004, Visible Ink Press) from the library, and I was immediately impressed by the depth and candor of the book. I suppose I'm so used to the white-washed official history given by publishers for this type of book, that entries so knowledgable and free of agenda are tremendously refreshing. The Martian Manhunter's entry by Michael A. Martin is surprisingly long (spanning three pages,) and informative, so my scans will run for several days. It gives a solid impression of what you can expect from this 725 page tome.
