Green Martians are an alien species from the planet Mars. A martian holocaust apparently killed all Green Martians, leaving J'onn J'onzz as the last of his kind; however, it was later revealed that the Green Martians were not all wiped out.

Powers and Abilities



None added.

Average Strength level

They can lift at least 100 tons.


  • Martian Physiology
    • Vulnerability to Fire: Martians are much more vulnerable to fire than the average Earth human. At times this has been portrayed as physical, psychological, or a combination of the two. The effect of this is to strip any Martian of their powers as they involuntarily lose control of their body.
    • Pyrophobia


Habitat: Arid terrain
Gravity: Martians can function in most environments regardless of gravity (even zero gravity environments).
Atmosphere: Green Martians can thrive in most environments. Their shape-changing abilities enable them to alter their body chemistry to adapt to nearly any environmental extreme. Due to their weakness to fire however, Martians are uncomfortable in environments with extremely high surface temperatures.
Population: (Currently) five known


Level of Technology:

Their technology is probably more advanced than most standard technology from Earth.

Cultural Traits:


The natives of Mars were a polytheistic culture, worshiping a number of deities. The most famous of these was H'ronmeer, the God of Death and Fire (although some regions referred to him as the God of Life and Light). The telepathic plague of fire which killed nearly all Martians, known as "H'ronmeer's Plague", or "H'ronmeer's Curse", was named in his honor. Despite the name, the plague was actually cultivated by a mortal Martian, the mutant Ma'alefa'ak.[7]

While H'ronmeer was sometimes identified as the God of Life, the true Martian patron of Life was the Goddess C'eridyall.

Another deity was L'zoril, the Lord of Dreams. Due to the Martians' native telepathic abilities, L'zoril was a widely respected and often-feared God. On Earth, L'zoril is better known as Morpheus, or Dream of the Endless.

Above these Gods in the Martian pantheon was the Unnameable One - the Creator God. The Unnameable One is referred to as the God behind all Gods.[5]




  • In Pre-Crisis continuity, a group of Green Martians abandoned their homeworld to begin life anew on a planet that they named Mars II. The Martians from this world eventually attempted to conquer Earth, but were thwarted by the Martian Manhunter and his allies, the Justice League of America. This group of Martians, as well as Mars II are no longer considered part of canon continuity. [8]
