Justice League: Cry for Justice #4 (December, 2009)
In San Francisco’s Nob Hill, a Green Arrow villain climbed through a girl’s bedroom window with the intention of kidnapping her for ransom. Should she scream, God help her. “My god’s name is H’ronmeer. And I doubt he’ll help you at all, Brick.” How did the girl know Brick's name? “Duh, I read minds. You know what else? Another of my gods is called L’Zoril. Say hello to him!”
With a panty peek and a punch, Miss Martian served Brick to dreamland. While standing on top of her conquest, M’gann was met by the Golden Age Flash, Jay Garrick. There was a massive conspiracy centered around the super-villain Prometheus that teams of heroes were working to unravel. M'gann M'orzz was among those that would be needed, but Jay had many more to gather before the day was done. They were as disparate as Manhunter (Kate Spencer) and Mr. America, in sequences that were never actually paid off when the story veered into different directions through editorial interference. When a weary Jay returned home, he was met by the Shade, who promised no ill will as he sought to safeguard Opal City and America itself.
The fourth chapter of Cry For Justice, “The Fix” was by James Robinson and Mauro Cascioli.

I did like the Martian religious references here. However, I am not sure where J'Onn and M'gann stand in relation to each other in the New 52.
Frank, here is another Martian sighting for May -- Smalville 11 will star the Martian Manhunter -- http://www.newsarama.com/php/multimedia/album_view.php?gid=4852&page=9
It is actually the annual for Smallville, Season 11. J'Onn investigates a crime in Gotham City that has ties to his origin. Batman and Nightwing (not Dick Grayson, but Stephanie Brown) are in it.
As far as I know, New 52 Miss Martian has only had a minor cameo appearance anywhere, so her relationships with anyone are in question.
The special will appear in about an hour with the other solicitation copy for May...
