I’ve been meaning to do this guy for a while now, especially since I’ve published the other founding members of the Justice League but one thing stopped me – the male orc model. I was hoping to use Thrall’s updated model in WMV but since he’s listed as an NPC, I couldn’t change his armour so after playing around with a few of the poses, here’s what I came up with.
Martian Manhunter, also known as J’onn J’onzz and John Jones, is a superhero from the planet Mars and the last surviving member of his race. A martian holocaust killed his wife and daughter, nearly driving him mad, until he was brought to Earth in an accident caused by scientist Saul Erdel. His natural abilities include super-strength, super-speed, invulnerability, flight, shape-shifting, intangibility and telepathy.
The only knowledge I had about this character (and many others) was from watching Smallville so any episode which guest starred any of the Supers were always my favourites to watch. I always thought it was a shame Batman and Wonder Woman didn’t make it into the series though.
If anyone remembers my original attempt at this guy, it was an embarrassing attempt at an elongated orc. I had to use a number of layers just for his body and at the time, won the record for most layers used.
