Unite the Seven: A Nerdy Podcast Event

We combine our might with seven other podcasts to dissect the iconic characters who form DC's Justice League.

Martian Manhunter! The glue that holds the Justice League together! But before that can ever happen, the last Martian known as J'onn J'onzz must come to terms with his own shameful history and the horrendous loss of his beloved M'yri'ah and daughter K'hym. Helping us confront such tremendous sorrow is Dr. Katherine Shear and The Center for Complicated Grief and their article, "H.E.A.L.I.N.G. Milestones: What To Expect from Grief."

You think you know J'onn, but you're wrong. Comic creators Steve Orlando and Riley Rossmo dig into the Martian Manhunter's backstory and reinvent his painful origin with an extra layer of tormented tragedy. Their epic twelve-issue maxi-series, Martian Manhunter: Identity does for J'onn what Tom King and Mitch Gerads did for Scott Free and Big Barda in their Mister Miracle series. You will never feel the same way about this particular JLA member again.

We interrupt our regularly scheduled program to partake in an epic podcast event - Unite the Seven. That's right, seven Justice League members, seven episodes. We got Martian Manhunter, but we encourage you to explore the other shows featuring unique spins on these iconic characters.

Issues covered in this episode: Martian Manhunter Volume 5, issues 1 - 12, published by DC Comics between February 2019 and April 2020. It’s written by Steve Orlando, illustrated by Riley Rossmo, colored by Ivan Plascencia, and lettered by Deron Bennett.
