The Martian Manhunter rescues the human who last had contact to his last informer. However, introducing her to other Martians may be more than she can handle. Meanwhile, the shadowy government agency is still trying to stop the Martian Manhunter from finding the truth about the captives from his planet. Can the Martians, now affected by special anti-Martian weaponry survive another attack?

The 1990s mini-series Martian Manhunter American secrets did conspiracy theories with alternative Martians villains pulling the strings much better than this current series has been doing and in far fewer issues. The story is going nowhere and all the reader is doing is following a boring detective investigation. The Martian Manhunter used to be a good detective but the material here does not highlight that.

The artwork is weak and instead of making people care about the Martian Manhunter, it’s turning him into a character no one can recognise. The new look is less than appealing and lacks the iconic effect. At the very least, giving him his normal forehead would have been fine. His old creepy Martian form was also much better than this humanoid version. The team working on this series is throwing every thing that made the character cool and replacing it with stuff that weakens the character. But if one goes by the logic of this series, if the Martian ever returns to his old looks, he will be betraying his roots. Odd choice.

4/10
