MM: Kal do you ever feel like a stranger on this planet. I know you were raised here but dont you think some of the things humans do are unwise.

Supe: Well yes there are somethings that are difficult to put up with but its the way of the world and we cant change that.

MM: I suppose your right.

A month goes by and we see superman sitting in the watchtower.

Flash: Superman something is happening on earth.

Supes: what?

Flash: All the world leaders are putting down their arms and destroying their borders.

Supes: Really?

Flash: Ya today in the middle east jewish and muslim leaders got together to play a game of cricket.

Supes: There is only one explanation but it cant be.

Superman flies off to see the Martian Manhunter

Supes: I know what your doing and it has to stop.

MM: Why the world is at peace and happy.

Supes: if you wont stop manipulating their minds then i will stop you.

MM: be my guess

Poor Superman never had much of a chance. Martian the Manhunter has a few extra abilities that would keep superman from doing real damage, including telepathy, shape-shifting, projecting energy, x-ray vision, phasing, invisibility, flight, and super strength. Shapeshifting, telepathy, and super strength should solve this quick. Appear as Lois Lane. Confuse his mind. Beat him to a pulp. Too simple. A similar story happened before when Martian goes rogue. Martian the Manhunter sends Superman to the edge of the universe.

Superman has very powerful defenses against telepathy (mentioned in Superman vs the Authority).

IMO this would be a great fight and MM could take Superman to his limits (unless he's still vulnerable to fire) but by no means a sure victory.

Than again there is this idea...

Appear as Lois Lane...


That has... disturbing implications. :blink:

Well, to be honest, I don't know much about Martian Manhunter, but with what HeyTim is saying, it seems like he has the advantage, although if you see the recently released Superman vs. Goku Death Battle, Superman has a clear advantage over Goku, and I believe Goku could beat Manhunter. Gotta give this to Supes.

Post Crisis Superman doesn't have high strong defenses against telepathy like people may think. Martian Manhunter destroys him with his telepathy for the win.

Martian Manhunter would WTF destroy Goku in a battle. It would fair much worse than Superman vs Goku.

Maybe so, but Superman vs. the Authority is not pre-Crisis, so why is it wrong?

Maxwell Lord proves Superman doesn't have high defenses against telepathy. Hence why if Wonder Woman didn't kill Lord he would have never let go of Superman.

So we have evidence from one story that Superman has very limited telepathic resistance and another where it's world class. Why do we prefer one over the other?

Also, does the Martian have the power to "*insensitivity*" somebody? I know he's a powerful telepath but not all telepaths have this ability (it depends a lot on the author of any particular story.) Have we seen Manhunter destroy a foe this way, or are we assuming that, because there are other telepaths who can do this, he should be able to also?

It's the truth. All MM would have to do is go intangible, and then shut down Goku's mind. Stop jerking off to Goku, you are the broken record, man.

MM takes this. He has all of Superman's abilities and more. MM is under rated.

Eh, Supes vs. J'onn has happened at CBUB before--as well more than once in the comics, IIRC. In fact, I seem to remember a story where MM went rogue and Superman and most of the JLA'ers couldn't stop him. It took Plastic Man, who has better elasticity than J'onn (which also affords him immunity to telepathy somehow), to beat him. If MM's serious, he can almost definitely take down Kal.

Decent scenario, but it needed a bit more story and some spellcheck.

We have evidence from more then one story showing you Superman doesn't have high defenses against telepathy. Darkseid has controlled him, Maxwell Lord has controlled him, Despero nearly took control of him, and more. Yes Superman will be taken down easily by Martian Manhunter with telepathy.

Also are you seriously going to doubt Martian Manhunter's telepathy abilities? Have you not read him in comics showing how powerful and skilled he is with telepathy? Martian Manhunter is as powerful as Charles Xavier and has centuries of experience with telepathy.

A preponderance of evidence is good, though your examples are sloppy. Darksied used a sophisticated brainwashing program, not telepathy.

Also are you seriously going to doubt Martian Manhunter's telepathy abilities? Have you not read him in comics showing how powerful and skilled he is with telepathy? Martian Manhunter is as powerful as Charles Xavier and has centuries of experience with telepathy.


I never said anything that could legitimately be interpreted as saying that the Martian Manhunter is not a powerful telepath. I have also never insulted you or said anything that was meant to be taken personally and I'm getting pretty tired of your abusive and condescending replies.

He is more powerful than Xavier.
