Martian Manhunter How Was He Killed?

By that I mean given his prodigious regeneration abilities (he once regenerated from nothing more than his hand) how was it that he was even able to be killed in the first place?

To quote Dr. Hibbert: 
 
"Fire.  And lots of it." 
 
Libra and gang cooked him at the beginning of Final Crisis.

@MrMiracle77: I know fire is his weakness and all but, wouldn't he be able to regenerate after the attack?

@DarkKnight96000:
it's kinda Confusing... try reading a copy of "Final Crisis Companion"... that's where i found out... it also explains who Libra is and his Origin..

It's his weakness. When he's around fire his powers don't work all that well anymore

That only worked because he transferred his soul into the fragment and separated it from his main body. If the fragment was caught in the explosion, it would have died with the rest of him.

@AtPhantom: What fragment did he transfer his soul into?

Effigy and Dr Light actually pumped his body full of fire iirc.  THEN Libra burned and staked him. 
 
Plus Libra's aura probably allowed him to weaken J'onn.
