J'onn J'onzz is one of the biggest anomalies of the DC Universe. He is just as strong as Superman, has many of his powers and ever a few more awesome ones like shape-shifting and telepathy. Heck, he's even the sole survivor of a dead planet! Yet, he's still regulated to second-tier status. He's not even in the Justice League anymore. Now they have Cyborg instead.
But the love he doesn't get in comics, he finally gets in the world of Funko.
This pre-Flashpoint Martian Manhunter Funko Pop is simply a perfect representation of the comic character. First of all, the green skin and powerful red eyes are amazing. It literally feels like he could burn a hole through my head at any given moment.
Then, the blue cape connected to the red chest straps and blue pants. I mean, it's not the most fashion forward superhero outfit, but it's spot on!
As you can see, and I can confirm it's not just mine, the blue from the pants leaked a little bit over onto the blue from the shoes. Other than that, which I didn't even notice for nearly a year, I find no flaws with this one.
And if you don't own one by now, GOOD LUCK! Unless this comes out of the vault, this will remain one of the hardest to find regular release Funko Pops out there! I was lucky enough to by this and the rest of this set for the regular price, literally one week before the price began to climb.
There is only one variant of this Pop, which is a Gemini Collectibles exclusive Metallic version (currently valued at $360.00). Which is a shame, because if there is any Pop that deserves an "invisible" variant like Predator and Bing Bong have, it's Martian Manhunter.
Pros: Perfect costume recreation. Green skin that makes Hulk jealous. Red eyes that set a fire in your soul.
Cons: A little paint bleeding between the pants and the boots on some. No invisible variant.
Estimated Value: $155.00
