DC Comics ha annunciato il ritorno di Martin Manhunter. Il titolo uscirà a dicembre negli Stati Uniti, sarà scritto da Steve Orlando (JLA, Wonder Woman) mentre ai disegni ci sarà Riley Rossmo (Image). Composta da un totale di 12 numeri, la serie viene descritta come una rivisitazione delle origini del personaggio. Un viaggio che porterà il protagonista a indossare nuovamente i finti panni del detective John Jones, impegnato a risolvere un caso di omicidio legato al suo passato su Marte.
Di seguito le prime dichiarazioni dello sceneggiatore rilasciate ad Hollywood Reporter:
In the past, J’onn has been too perfect, he argued. One of the reasons people have not connected to him is that he was a perfect upright cop on Mars, and yes, his family died but it was no fault of his own, and then he came to Earth and he was perfect. Our favorite characters, that’s not them, you know? Spider-Man let the burglar go. Bruce Wayne was too afraid to save his family. This book gives J’onn that moment, and that’s the keystone as to why this book will be, is, the Martian Manhunter story, because we finally know the why. Why he strives to be so good on Earth, why he has this journey, because he’s never really had one before. All of our favorite characters overcome their faults, and we hope he’s going to do it here, but he has to have them first.
