J'onn J'onnz, the Black King?
The Martian Manhunter played a role during the Fall of the Wall saga in the Checkmate series in which we saw the conspiracy unfold that forced Amanda Waller to resign her position as the White Queen of Checkmate. Now I'm not going to get into details about that too much but in a nut shell it involved MM impersonating the Black King for a while and later MM probing Deadshot's mind and extracting some information that allowed the other royals ( Black King, Black Queen and White King) to black mail Waller.
The Fall of the Wall saga was my first look at the "cone head" version of MM. That was kinda at a time where my interest in comics was on the low end so I had no idea what the Hell that look was all about. I didn't like it, and if some body (Frank) out there wants to tell me what that look was all about (Frank) I'd love for them to leave a comment (Frank) to that end. Fairly recently I discovered that great show Young Justice and I thought it was interesting how MM was sporting that new costume on the show but not the cone head thank God. I think this version of MM's costume is pretty cool. Maybe I even think I like it a bit more then the original. So what say you people? Cone head or no cone head?
