Action 774 – Scorch burns the Martian Manhunter

act_774

Joe Kelly is joined by Eric Canete and Juan Vlasco as the Martian Manhunter falls prey to Scorch in Action 774 (Feb. 01).  Scorch was one of the villains introduced in Superman – Arkham, who was kept around after her reality went away.  Because.

Superman gets called by the Martian Manhunter, who is in Washington DC.  He freezes J’onn, which prevents Scorch’s fire from having any effect, and so the demon just leaves, about a third of the way into the story. For the rest, Superman and Martian Manhunter experience New Year’s Eve together, as the Martian tries to understand this holiday

. act_774_002 For me, the nejoyable parts of the story were not the stuff with J’onn, but the scenes back at the Kent house, as Lois hosts Jimmy, and her parents for New Years, and Sam Lane gets to rant ridiculously.
