JLA CLASSIFIED ships twice in September! Part 2 of "The Ghosts of Mars!" The Martian Manhunter struggles with the memories of his long dead family…but when the memories fight back, the Manhunter's position among the Justice League of America is shaken!
J'onn J'onzz is on Mars, meditating on the fate of the Red Planet and holding a conversation with his brother, Ma'alefa'ak. Though Malefic is dead, during their youth, J'onn and Ma'alefa'ak shared in the Martian rite of G'amal'khul, the exchange of self between loved ones. Centuries later, this aspect of self left behind in J'onn's psyche still persists. They discuss J'onn's relationship with the JLA and the people of Earth, arguing over his assimilation (or lack thereof) into their culture. As the conversation progresses, it is revealed that Malefic has hidden the similar aspects of J'onn's wife and daughter.
In flashback we see J'onn and the Justice League battling Starro, and offering relationship advice to Green Arrow, as well as a summary of Malefic's origins.
