J’onn J’onzz, The Martian Manhunter, has officially returned to the DC Rebirth universe.
The return of J’onn J’onzz comes in Issue #5 of the colossal event, Dark Nights: Metal, as the alien reveals himself to two of his former heroic allies. And while he’s only been glimpsed a handful of times since the Rebirth continuity changed DC’s history, his friends never forgot about his role in the hero community. In fact, Martian Manhunter may have some explaining to do when the action dies down, having stayed out of the METAL apocalypse until all hope seemed lost.
It’s unclear if Martian Manhunter will be playing a major role in METAL or not – and the same goes for DC’s larger plan going forward. But whatever the case, J’onn J’onzz is finally back in the current state of DC’s Rebirth continuity. And that alone is cause for celebration.
Dark Nights: Metal #5 is available in local comic book shops and online services now.
