The All-Martian Council

Click To Expand

The All-Martian Council was a governing body on the planet Mars, although the extent of their influence is unknown. Their scientists once commissioned a super-weapon to defend Mars, which was stolen and dismantled by the arch-criminal Vulkor. From whom the Martians needed such a defense was not stated. The Council saw to Vulkor's initial imprisonment, from which he eventually escaped. The Council showed indications of hubristic arrogance with regard to their handling of Vulkor, and were unwilling to send space police to apprehend him on Earth due to a lack of "official relations." Their super-weapon was eventually destroyed by the exiled Martian hero J'onn J'onzz, who referred to the Council simply as "leaders".

The All-Martian Council had a posh meeting chamber, and were protected by their own guardsmen. The Council consisted of at least four members, three of whom were clearly green-skinned (and therefore presumably Desert Dwellers.) An unidentified chairman/spokesman had black hair and bulging eyes.
