Once again, we return to the field of comparison to look at two important, but widely maligned members of their respective universes.  Each is a founding member of the greatest super-team of their world, each is a powerhouse equal to the strongest members of their team and each… is green.  Indeed, The Martian Manhunter and The Hulk have another thing in common, as they have been retconned away from their founding status, one by having Captain America considered an honorary founder in their place, the other by literally being replaced by Cyborg.  They also disappeared for many years from the JLA and/or Avengers, leading to today’s not-that-easy-bein’ query…

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
