J'onn J'onzz is a male Pokey Husky born July 1, 2008
and last adopted September 7, 2018.
He is 10 years and 11 months old.
J’onn J’onzz (born between 1425 and 169912), commonly referred to as the “Martian Manhunter”, is the last Green Martian. Born and raised on the planet Mars, J’onn was thought to be the sole survivor of a “Martian Holocaust” instigated by the White Martians that also killed his entire family. J’onn fled to Earth and stayed hidden for centuries until he was discovered by D.E.O. Director Hank Henshaw. After Jeremiah Danvers seemingly sacrificed himself to save J’onn from being killed by Henshaw, the Martian began posing as Director to reform the D.E.O. for its intended purpose recruiting Jeremiah’s daughter Alex Danvers and later Kara Danvers/Supergirl. Eventually J’onn found himself forced to reveal his true identity and became a fugitive.
However, after having helped to save the world from Non and Indigo assisting Supergirl in defeat them, J’onn received a full presidential pardon by Olivia Marsdin and was reinstated as director of the D.E.O., continuing to use Hank’s appearance for convenience sake. Due to his identity being made public, as the “Last Green Martian” It was later discovered that J’onn is not the last Green Martian, as his father M’yrnn J’onzz also survived and was held prisoner for about 300 years. After the advent of the Worldkillers that led to the death of his father, J’onn left the D.E.O. before promoting Alex to the its new Director.
J’onn J’onzz was born sometime between 1425 and 164012 on the planet Mars, to high religious leader M’yrnn J’onzz.3 He hailed from a peaceful race of psychic shapeshifters known as Green Martians and lived a life of harmony with his family. He and his wife, M’yri’ah, were married for 77 years and at some point had two daughters together, K’hym and T’ania.
After he became a father, J’onn discovered his vocation for protecting others and joined the Martian police, becoming a manhunter.His idyllic life was cut short when the surface of their world was invaded by the White Martians, a subterranean race. They wiped out the Green Martians, including his wife and daughters, in the so-called “Martian Holocaust”. However, J’onn was somehow able to escape and wounded up on Earth. Believing all his people were killed, J’onn thought to be the last of his kind.
Arrival on Earth and discovery
After his arrival on Earth, J’onn spent centuries travelling the world and hiding from society, as his first attempts to make contact with humans created panic and hysteria;6 however at the end of 1800’s he met a Shaolin monk with whom he made a friend and from whom he learned meditation techniques. At some point (approximately 300 years after his arrival), J’onn had at least one encounter with Earth’s Kryptonian hero Superman, and whether or not this encounter ended up in a fight, it is still unknown, but it was enough for Superman to call J’onn “the most powerful being on Earth”.
In 2005, after being discovered on Earth, J’onn was tracked down in a remote location in Peru by the D.E.O. However, Jeremiah Danvers saved J’onn’s life when D.E.O. Director Hank Henshaw tried to kill him, with J’onn promising to watch over Alex Danvers and Kara Danvers thereafter. Disguising himself as Hank Henshaw, J’onn took over as the head of the D.E.O. reshaping it into a force of good.
Falling out with Superman
At some point afterward, J’onn met with Superman again, and the latter helped him and the D.E.O. uncover an alien asteroid, composed of an emerald-green Kryptonian xenomineral. J’onn nicknamed it “Kryptonite” and resolved to store it in the D.E.O. as a contingency, which enraged Superman, thus leading to the pair falling out.
J’onn had shapeshifted into Alura Zor-El in order to convince Kara to keep her powers a secret and to not use them. Bonding with her as well in the form of an FBI agent. Even trying to pretend to not understand her when speaking Kryptonese. After making sure she doesn’t use her powers, he leaves. Shapeshifting back into Hank Henshaw and driving off from Midvale.
The D.E.O. subdued Supergirl as she was mid-flight on her way to stop a fire. After she woke up at their base J’onn, as Hank Henshaw, introduced himself as the organization’s director. After being released from kryptonite cuffs, J’onn explained to Kara how her ship brought Fort Rozz to Earth when it escaped the Phantom Zone, and released thousands of the galaxy’s worst criminals. Afterwards, J’onn rejected her offer to capture them, telling her that if she wanted to help, she could go back to getting someone’s coffee.
Henshaw later sarcastically remarked on how Kara did in fact help, after she was defeated by Vartox and her wound opened up a possible way to ID his weapon, potentially giving the D.E.O. a way to defeat him. Later, Hank was convinced by Kara to let her intercept Vartox, after the satellites picked up on him heading towards National City, with him telling Kara, “Make sure you win.” He was later questioned by Alex Danvers whether she was solely recruited based on Kara, with J’onn telling her that although that was the reason she was recruited, her own actions were the reason she got to stay.
A week later, J’onn along with the rest of the D.E.O. tested the limits of Kara’s abilities, as he needed to know that she was in full control of her powers. The next day, J’onn questioned what Kara was doing at Plastino Chemicals during a D.E.O. investigation, though after the situation was explained to him by Alex, he told Kara not to touch anything. At the D.E.O. base, Kara told J’onn and Alex that the alien they were looking for was a Hellgrammite. J’onn was offered by Kara that the D.E.O. could track the Hellgrammite down, and Kara could defeat him, though J’onn came to the declined saying she could do so if she could prove to them that she could handle herself without being killed.
The following day, J’onn along with Alex and Agent Hartmann came to the conclusion that the Hellgrammite was eating the DDT he had been stealing, as the government had been destroying remaining stockpiles, and his food source was shrinking. Later, the DEO set a trap for the Hellgrammite with a truck driving with tanks of DDT in its back, and Alex and J’onn along with several other DEO agents followed behind it in another vehicle. Soon after Alex was abducted by the Hellgrammite, forcing J’onn to call Kara back the D.E.O. base. He was later berated by her for putting her through tests instead of trusting her, as the situation could have been prevented if she had been there. J’onn however reassured Kara that they had every satellite and a tactical drone searching for Alex.
J’onn was later alerted to Alex’s position after Kara discovered it through the use of her super hearing. Though he warned her to wait after she told him he that she was going to get Alex, he was ignored. J’onn later rescued both Alex and Kara from Astra, ordering the Kryptonian to halt. Though Astra grabbed J’onn by the neck, taunting that he had no weapon that could hurt her, he plunged a Kryptonite knife into her arm, prompting her to fly off. J’onn was later thanked by Alex for helping her setup the room in the D.E.O. base that Kara could talk with the AI that was found in her pod.
When Supergirl was attacked by an unmarked drone she took it to the D.E.O. headquarters, Hank revealed it’s not one of theirs. The drone was remarkably nimble, nearly evading Supergirl altogether before she managed to eye-beam it to an explosive demise. A drone with all the technologies of the company Lord Industries, a company founded by Maxwell Lord.13 General Sam Lane came to Hank and the D.E.O. to request help from Supergirl to test their new weapon the Red Tornado.In the aftermath of the battle, however, Supergirl had exhausted her solar energy through her heat vision and temporarily lost her abilities.
