The Martian Meteorite was a fairly blatant swipe of Red Kryptonite, though it thankfully made only one appearance. A Martian meteorite caused the Manhunter to switch bodies with a VULTURE hatchet man in House of Mystery #172 (2/68). According to J'onn J'onzz, "It must be a Martian meteorite-- and it would have the effect of fouling up my transformation powers! What's more- I'll remain fouled up, as long as it keeps burning!" The meteorite and flames emitting from it were a strange green shade. Once the meteorite was cooled through Martian Manhunter's pet/sidekick Zook's ability to turn its body temperature to 10,000 degrees below zero, the Martian meteorite ceased to be an issue.
