Starting in issue #2 of Justice League of America, Manhunter will have his own, solo back-up story from writers Matt Kindt and Geoff Johns featuring art by Scott Clark. J'onn J'onzz has always been one incredibly intriguing character, with strength on par with Superman or a tier-or-two below, that raw power is combined with telepathy and shape-shifting abilities. Personally, I've always thought that J'onn would take Supes no contest if push came to shove. Said Kint on his take on the character, ""I can't tell you how excited I am to be working on this. I grew up with the JLA and Manhunter was one of the few characters I felt had so much more un-mined potential than most of the other characters. His powers and abilities really lend themselves to the kind of stories I love to tell. And working with Geoff? That's like the cherry on top. But more than just being fun from the fan/reader part of me, we're really working to make the back-ups be an essential part of the reading experience. We're treating the back-up like the harmony to the main melody of the issue....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."
