The The Origin of the Justice League - Minus One! wiki last edited by mph_88 on 04/12/13 02:36PM View full history

Green Arrow thought he had learned the Justice League's origin back in issue #9 (Feb. 1962), when he was told of 7 meteors transporting aliens to Earth. Now, he found inconsistencies in the story. Writer Steve Englehart and artist Dick Dillin revealed the truth as told by former JLA member Martian Manhunter. Back in1959, a White Martian invasion of Earth prompted Martian Manhunter to covertly guide the Flash into bringing together more than 30 heroes. The heroes rescued Martian Manhunter from the White Martians and averted the threat, ultimately introducing him as a member of their new team when they debuted 6months after their initial gathering; this was to avoid the xenophobia illustrated by the populace when the White Martians first appeared.
