Batman: Mitefall (1995)
A probable delusion in the mind of an insane Gotham junkie named Bob Overdog, but possibly an other-dimensional imp version of the Martian Manhunter, appeared in this parody tie-in to the "Knightfall" crossover by Alan Grant and Kevin O'Neill. After the Bat-Mite is broken, the world's heroes banded together in a fruitless battle against Bane-Mite. The mite Martian Manhunter lost his front teeth and had knots beaten all over his cranium by Bane-Mite. The Martian was one of many left chained up, as all other mite heroes failed to stop the evil-doer. Finally, the goodness in Bob's soul erupted, felling Bane-Mite before Bob fatally overdosed and/or was murdered by a gang. The Mites erected a statue in Bob Overdog's honor, for whom the Mitian Mitehunter-Mite mourned and beamed with pride.
Not a shining moment for anyone involved...
