Geoff Johns, Matt Kindt to Write Martian Manhunter Backup in JLA

Former Frankenstein and Mind MGMT writer Matt Kindt joins Geoff Johns on Martian Manhunter backup in Justice League of America.



Source: MTV Geek

Frank no know whether to feel happy or sad. Today, Frank learn that Matt Kindt, who wrote Frank last book at DC Comics, Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E., will begin writing Martian Manhunter backup in Justice League of America, starting with issue #2. On one hand, Frank happy for friend, as writing backup in JLA book is big deal. On other hand, Frank can't help but be little hurt, as Martian Manhunter kind of like Frankier version of Frank. Both Frank and Manhunter green, and both afraid of fire. Why Matt Kindt no bring Frank to JLA backup instead? Frank no good enough? Frank too fat? Matt no love Frank anymore?

On third hand (Frank no limited to two hands - is benefit of being monster cobbled together from spare body parts), Frank is no worried, since DC have big meetings this week and will probably fire everyone and reboot universe again by beginning of next year.

Head to MTV Geek to read interview with Kindt, though Frank copy best part of interview and paste below:

Geek: You basically just touched on this, but in terms of limitations; Is he still afraid of fire? Are we going to see the bad guys hide out in a candle shop and be impervious to him, or something like that?

Kindt: [Laughs] I don’t know if we’re going to get much more than that. If anything, the first few stories we’re just going to establish how scary he is. It’s almost like Dr. Manhattan, this guy is crazy scary: he can do anything. I want to establish that first, and then we can establish how he can be beaten.



Written or Contributed by Frankenstein, Former Agent of S.H.A.D.E.

I hope he's joking there. J'onn as a Dr. Manhattan clone would be crappy.

Matt Kindt doing things is always great. Too bad he's saddled with Geoff Johns (not that I would have started buying JLA just for backups).
The witness said Mr Brown then called out to Ms Hay's adult daughter: "Look at this, I'm tittie-f***ing your mother!".

The good thing about this is that hopefully we can all forget about J'onn's shitty tenure on Stormwatch which very few people want to remember.

I wish Manhunter was part of the main Justice League title. I think he would fit in better there.

Not sure but I don't think he was portrayed like that in Stormwatch, was he ? Hopefully Kindt was just making a comparison in terms of their power and how they are so 'alien' compared to the rest of their team.

Man, you guys are lucky enough to get a writer like Matt Kindt jobbing for DC to pay his bills (because you don't buy Mind MGMT), and it's just bitch bitch bitch.

The upside of this is that at least the god awful Captain Marvel backup will come to an end.
