Flashback Friday: The Shapeshifting Introduction of Miss Martian
Sep 10, 2021
Miss Martian, aka M’gann M’orzz (who also goes by Megan Morse), is a White Martian who travels to Earth and becomes a superhero. She has similar abilities to Martian Manhunter, including shapeshifting, telepathy, telekinesis, and superstrength. The character is still relatively new to DC continuity, having made her first appearance in Teen Titans #37 (August 2006).
Created by Geoff Johns and Tony S. Daniel, Miss Martian was a member of the Teen Titans during Infinite Crisis and One Year Later. M’gann traveled by rocket from Mars to the Vega system in an effort to escape the civil war between the White and Green Martians. When she came to Earth, M’gann pretended to be a Green Martian-like Martian Manhunter.
She joined the Teen Titans, but after they treated her insensitively, she left the team and traveled to Australia. The Titans suspected that Miss Martian was a traitor, only to learn that Bombshell, her accuser, was the real traitor. Once Miss Martian helped the team defeat Bombshell, she was asked to rejoin the Titans.
