First Appearance: House of Mystery #159 (June, 1966)

Nar was considered the most brilliant and evil scientist on the dwarf planet Pluto. Becoming aware that a million Mercurian heavy gold pieces were to be transported aboard a Jovian cargo ship, Nar enlisted the aid of the bandit Devil Men to steal the shipment. A single blast from the solar-gun on Nar's ship opened up the cargo hold, and the Devil Men ventured into outer space in suits to procure the ill-gotten gain. Nar hid the treasure on Earth, and one Plutonian year later, called the Devil Men back together to collect and divvy the loot. Unfortunately, the Devil Men decided to cut Nar out, and he was gunned down by their leader L'lex. It is unclear whether Nar was killed, but he had set a trap for the Devil Men that appeared to definitely seal their fates.

Powers & Weapons:
Nar appeared to have access to a good deal of powerful technology, with the mind to use it.

Quote: "It is safe now for me to return and collect the treasure!"

I'm new to Martian Manhunter,
What do you consider his logo the red straps that make an X or the little belt buckle thing. Also is it ever said what they represent?

I like the belt buckle pie slices, which is currently his chest emblem. The problem with the straps is that Hawkman is better known for them, and so many other DC characters have them (Adam Strange coming most readily to mind.) They're pretty generic, and anything "X" in comics recalls Marvel's mutants. No idea what they represent, although most likely, it was simple scribbles to dress up a minimal costume. Still, I dig 'em.
