For too long has he been shrouded in mystery, his name spoken only in the darkest alleys of the internet. It's time to shed some light on MR MOTH, one of the Martian Manhunter's few thematic foes.
|I REALLY miss intro-exposition panels like this. Every one is worth ten "Batman cold opens".|
|Mr. Moth-- a name even less suited to invoking terror than "B'rett".|
Mr. Moth had better be danged impressive. Because, with that name and his penchant for glitter, I'm already picturing him as Killer Moth's sassy gay friend.
"Give yourself up, Moth!" a policewoman shouts.
"That is MISTER Moth to YOU, little lady cop!' he sasses back.
At least he starts out pretty well on the splash page: he defeats still-not-yet-able-to-fly J'onn Jonzz with a thematically tricked out CH-53 Sea Stallion, painted bright yellow...
|Yep. Nothing you can do, J'onn. Because you're nearly powerless, right?|
J'onn's GREATEST power?
Just leave a wool suit in your closet and wait.
Hmm. What's the thought process here?
"Law-abiding citizens are a well-dressed and cowardly lot, sporting their natural fibers. I shall strike fear into their hearts ... I will become ... MR. MOTH!"
J'onn's greatest power is probably polyester.
B'Rett Moth has a nice ring to it. I hope they'll be quite happy together. But, oh, will Jim P. Lawrence, the used-Sikorsky dealer, be able to make it to the wedding with his busy schedule!? And wherever shall they put the statue of Atlas with its godlike...armpit-abs, are they? Anatomy isn't my thing. And will they have enough money for the wedding of their dreams after the statue swings over on the hook and people are crushed by the globe?
And I wonder if Mr. Moth's first name is "Human," like the Martian Manhunter's other "major" villains.
Wait. The statue isn't glittery. Is Mr. Moth's diabolical plan to coat it in glitter? I'm not judging him for it if he is, mind you, just curious...
Wait, if he is attracted to shiny things, shouldn't he be Mister Magpie or something?
Can't J'onn get some god from seawater and lure him in?
God I love comics!
He's going to have to be impressive to compete with Killer Moth, who I believe to be Batman's most under-rated villain based on that earlier article of yours you linked.
"The statue isn't glittery. Is Mr. Moth's diabolical plan to coat it in glitter? "
WAIT FOR IT......!
Clearly I need to snag a copy of the Showcase book. Why I own the Jonah Hex version and not Martian Manhunter is beyond me...
The Martian Manhunter isn't the greatest obstacle to Mr. Moth's success.
It's Rowan County, Ky., official Kim Davis!
How will Mr. Moth foil her scheme to deprive him of a marriage license?
