2011 "Ladies of DC - Miss Martian" by Taylor Cordingley

"They're fun, they're sassy and they all seem to have a mean right hook. For years, DC Comics has consistently created amazing female superheroes. I'd like to pay tribute to these amazing women of the DC Universe with one of my patented pin-up series -- Ladies of DC! Thirty-second is the marvelous Miss Martian!

Real Name: M'gann M'orzz
Notable Aliases: Megan Morse
First Appearance: Teen Titans #37
Abilities: Flight, superhuman strength, invisibility, intangibility, shapeshifting, optic force blasts, telepathy.

Miss Martian is a newer character who has won her way into the hearts of many Teen Titans fans. Despite the fact that she's a White Martian (i.e. the fed after midnight version of Gizmo), M'gann is a soft-spoken individual whose characterization is fairly similar to the anime-ized Starfire from the Teen Titans cartoon. I've read a few Teen Titans stories with her in them and find her to be a much-needed bright spot on the team. Between a demon, whiny Amazon and a sarcastic sword-wielding Wilson spawn, M'gann really makes a difference as a light-hearted character. Miss Martian is also gaining a lot of attention thanks to her appearance in the new Young Justice cartoon. I haven't seen it but she does look gorgeous in it. Anyway Titans fans, this one is for you! Keep your eyes peeled for another Titan to appear before the end of this series (which is drawing close -- there's a Titan and the four most recognizable DC heroines left)."

Don't know if you watch Young Justice but there has been a nice side story about M'Gann's origins this season.

That culminated with a M'Gann vs J'Onn battle this last weekend. Miss Martian won ... but J'Onn was Starro'd.
