Jemm is a fictional alien that has appeared in various comic book series published by DC Comics. The character exists in DC's main shared universe, known as the DC Universe. Created by Greg Potter and Gene Colan originally as the green-skinned cousin of the Martian Manhunter (his original name was Jemm, Son of Mars), he first appeared in Jemm, Son of Saturn #1 (September 1984).

According to Greg Potter, co-creator of Jemm, the character was originally conceived as the cousin of the Martian Manhunter. (Jogarr, Jemm's cousin in the series, was originally the Manhunter.) This was at a time when the Manhunter had disappeared from the pages of DC Comics for a time. However, part-way through developing the series, Greg was told by DC editor Janice Race that she had learned Manhunter would reappear in the pages of DC's Justice League of America comic book. To avoid any continuity problems, Potter rewrote the series as Jemm, Son of Saturn, a character with no connection to the Martian Manhunter.

Jemm was reintroduced to the DC Universe by Grant Morrison in JLA #12, which emphasised his similarity to J'onzz. During his run on Martian Manhunter, John Ostrander used these similarities to explain that the Saturnians were a race created by and modelled on the Martians.

The three races of Ma'aleca'andra (Mars) are directly responsible for the H'ronmeerca'andran colonies on the moons of Saturn. Saturnians are descended from an underclass of worker clones created by ancient Martian explorers. The Green Martians cloned the original Red Saturnians from themselves, and the White Martians cloned the original White Saturnians. The Green Martians treated their clones as equals, while the White Martians treated theirs as slaves. The fate of the Yellow Martians is unknown.
