10 Former Justice League Members Who Need Another Call-Up

1. Martian Manhunter

DC Comics

Martian Manhunter is one of the seven original members of the Justice League, and was the hero who saw that history lost as part of the New 52 reboot to make way for the hero, Cyborg.

While it was important to bring Cyborg up as a hero that has a much more modern sensibility and adds an important layer of visible representation to the team, it was a shame to see J'onn J'onzz lose his place on the team.

Martian Manhunter's own abilities rival Superman's, making him genuinely on the same league as the hero, but add to that abilities like shapeshifting, telepathy and the ability to control his mass, Martian Manhunter is a mighty addition to bring back to the Justice League.

Plus, lately the Manhunter from Mars has been getting some good screen time on The CW's Supergirl, so the character could do with the same love in the comics now too.

Not seen since the end of his last solo series at DC, it's time for J'onn J'onzz to make a triumphant return to DC and to the Justice League now.
