Noir Martian Manhunter

Just felt like drawing a comic book character tonight!

I have always really liked the John Jones incarnation of the Martian Manhunter character from DC comics. He's so much cooler as a ghostly noir detective. I think he should just stick to the fedora and trench coat. So much better than a blue speedo with red suspenders and a cape.

Yeah. I really like that concept of him as a detective. It seems like it works.

Blue speedo + red suspenders = super gay lumberjack

And I have nothing against you wearing your Sunday best about town.

Thanks! If nothing else, I think it would make a cool mini-series.

No problem- ugh, indeed! OR, at least, a great Elseworlds title :nod:

I don't know, that blue speedo kicked ass. I like him on the Justice League because he's the weird kid that hangs out with Aquaman. I suppose they're both telepathic, that might explain their friendship as well. But still, it's funny to me that the Atlantean and the Martian have to eat at their own table in the Cafeteria of Justice.

haha. That describes why you like Martian Manhunter? Because he is friends with Aquaman? You really are a unique dude.

Well, I like when he's used on the Justice League so that their particular team dynamic of 'misfits' may shine. I'm a Marvel kid.

Thank you much! I definitely wanted to get that claustrophobic noir atmosphere to it!

I really dig the whole noir look, I don't know much of the character to be honest besides his backround but this look would be really cool to fit into a 40's Area 51 setting with the whole Men In Black ideas

Oh man! I hadn't thought of it that way. That'd be awesome too!
