We last left Det. John Jones at the unveiling of the statue of Atlas Phosphoratus Mundigerens.
|"I sure hope this attracts Mr. Moth! Otherwise I may actually have to go martian-manhunting him."|
Like his fellow lazy-ass crimefighter, Green Armchair, J'onn hates to manhunt and prefers his prey delivered. Unlike his Star City counterpart, who is an idle millionaire, however, J'onn is an actual police detective who spends all day wandering around, making his indolence nearly incomprehensible.
Fortunately, making his own wishes come true is one of J'onn's lesser-used powers, so, sure enough, soon Mr. Moth casts his terrifying shadow upon the assembled flock of Apexians.
Besides, Mr. Moth knows J'onn's weakness-- concern for the conveniently pre-assembled and easily endangered flocks of Apexians-- and acts accordingly. The ominous Mothcopter is equipped with gunnage and tracer bullets, the kind of ammo you can use to start fires! OH NO! Fire is J'onn's weakness!!!
|"I read how you come from the green skins and done fought the white skins and did a powerful lot for the orange skins. But I got one question, Mr. Martian Manhunter; how come you never helped us purple skins...?"|
Hm. Okay. Or, I guess, you can use them to topple that sign onto the flocked Apexians, paralyzed purple with fear!
|If JJ can't use his Martian powers while he is invisible...how does he turn visible again?|
Also, can J'onn create an ice cream cone with his mind that's so large that even he can't lick it?
Hm. Okay. Or, since the purple crowd has magically disappeared like a Tudor barn, the sign could fall upon a loaded bus. One that just happened to have stalled right under it. Just after you fired on the sign. You're a lucky guy, Mr. Moth.
|Oh, sure. A busload of WHITE people. Purple lives matter, J'onn.|
"How WILL I ever be able to catch him?!" I dunno, 'Manhunter'; maybe you should hire a detective.
Oh. OR you could just wait for yet another opportunity for Mr. Moth to steal a valuable, newly unveiled installation with a skyhook...
|How rich are comic book cities like Apex? Rich enough to have gold solar system models for the sake of pure ostentation.|
