2010 "Finish The Picture" by Lissbirds

Lissbirds says You Asked For It... so here it is! I don't think things have gone so wrong for J'Onn lately, with the Conehead gone and a co-starring role in the event series of the year. I wouldn't even have minded if Liss had "retconned" the new pants/chestpiece onto her Martian Manhunter. Maybe the Alien Atlas is really look for help in saving Wonder Woman from a truly dire fate?

Further, Lissbirds took a strong interest in expanding our comments discussion of Martian Manhunter: Blank Canvas for Symbols, Too? What started as a simple art post got pretty in depth at her blog, so check it out!

Thanks for the feature! Y'know, I didn't realize until I read your post that things really are looking "up" for the Martian Manhunter lately. I'm just so habitually pessimistic. 'Course all this new-found noteriety for our hero could backfire sometime down the line, so don't say I didn't warn ya.

I'd be interested to further the conversation about the symbol (or lack thereof). I really wasn't expecting the whole "Mars represents evil thing" when I was reading up on its symbol and I think writers really could run with that.

J'Onn is doing well these days. However, I know that DC is capable of messing up perfectly good characters. Let's hope that this will not happen.
