M is for Martian Manhunter


Martian Manhunter is from weelittlestitches’ superhero alphabet sampler.

He’s one of the seven original members of the Justice League.

Martian Manhunter is a member of the Green Martian race with a wide variety of abilities, such as superhuman strength, durability, flight, regeneration, shape-shifting, intangibility, invisibility, telepathy, telekinesis, extrasensory input, and optic blasts.


Thumbs up!

I was first introduced to Martian Manhunter on the animated series Justice League and Justice League Unlimited. His shape-shifting abilities were always interesting to me Рadopting human or monstrous form, even altering the chemical composition of his body.

He was much more conservative compared to the rest of the League members – soft-spoken and gentle coupled with his love for cookies, Oreos specifically. He’s a powerful member of the League, and his abilities are similar to Superman’s powers.


I can fly… I can fly… I can fly…

He’s very serious and no nonsense in several of his incarnations, but Martian Manhunter is extremely campy in Batman: The Brave and the Bold. Can I just say that Batman: The Brave and the Bold and its never-ending campy feel is just so amazing – it so should have run at least a season more!


Say WHAT?!?

Martain Manhunter also appears in The Batman animated series and the Young Justice TV series. He appears in several direct-to-video DC original animated films, including Justice League: The New Frontier, Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths, and Justice League: Doom.

Recently, the character has appeared on CBS’s Supergirl under the guise of Hank Henshaw.


M is for Mary Marvel


Mary Marvel is from fangirl stitches’ girl power superhero comic book alphabet.

I knew of Mary Marvel, specifically her outfit, before I stitched her because I know a little about Shazam. Mary Marvel is a part of the Marvel family or rather the Shazam family.

She is the alter ego of teenager Mary Batson, twin sister of Shazam/Captain Marvel’s alter ego, Billy Batson. Like her brother, she’s been granted the power of the wizard Shazam and has to simply speak the wizard’s name to transform into the superpowered Mary Marvel.

Mary Marvel (as Mary Batson) appears in the Batman: The Brave and the Bold episode “The Power of Shazam!” She returns in “The Malicious Mr. Mind” with the ability to transform into Mary Marvel.
