"Justice League: Only a Dream: Part II (#2.6)" (2003)
J'onn J'onzz: But once you find him, how are you going to stop him from, thinking?
Batman: I'll just have to improvise.

Superman: I started with no power at all. Then I kept getting more and more. What if it never stops?
J'onn J'onzz: You'll handle it. I know you.
Superman: Words. Just words.

Superman: You'll get hurt.
J'onn J'onzz: No. I'm stronger here than you.

J'onn J'onzz: I can take this from you, but you have to believe in me.

Dr. Destiny: You're good, but I'm better.
J'onn J'onzz: That's why I brought a friend.

J'onn J'onzz: You need to look inside yourself.


"Justice League: Secret Origins: Part III (#1.3)" (2001)
J'onn J'onzz: My family and loved ones are long gone... I am the last of my kind.
Superman: I know the feeling.

Wonder Woman: They're nothing but untamed savages.
J'onn J'onzz: Do not judge them too harshly. They act out of fear.

Green Lantern: What about Batman?
J'onn J'onzz: He acted heroically, to the very end.

Superman: You shouldn't have risked your lives for us.
J'onn J'onzz: Would you have done less for me?

Imperium: After all these years you have finally lost.
J'onn J'onzz: [telepathically] Have I?
Imperium: You're hiding something. A secret deep in the recesses of your mind. Is this another one of your Martian tricks?
J'onn J'onzz: [telepathically] Do I sense fear?

J'onn J'onzz: You live underground and shun the light. Why? Does it burn your pale putrid skin?


"Batman: The Brave and the Bold: Shadow of the Bat! (#3.3)" (2011)
Blue Beetle: The reason Bats called this emergency meeting. Gotta be an alien invasion. Uh... no offense, J'onn.
Martian Manhunter: None taken.

Aquaman: [Martian Manhunter is about to tell him what he thinks Batman's situation is when Aquaman holds up a hand and looks around] He's here.
Martian Manhunter: How do you know?
Aquaman: [looks at the aquarium of fish] They told me.

Martian Manhunter: I sense you're trying to resist this evil, Batman. Open your mind so I can help you.
Batman: [manages to control the vampire within him; weakly] Destroy me, J'onn.

Martian Manhunter: NO!... I can't lose you again.

Martian Manhunter: Get out of my... MIND!

Martian Manhunter: You said it before, human. I'm the most powerful one of them. I'm going to stop you, now.


Justice League: The New Frontier (2008) (V)
J'onn J'onzz: I though I could make a life for myself here among you humans. I didn't think I had a choice. But there is one now. There's too much hatred here, too much ignorance, too much mindless conformity. I'm leaving.
Batman: Have a nice trip. Some of us don't have that luxury.

King Faraday: Come on, level with me.
J'onn J'onzz: Very well. I have looked into your mind, and by extension, your heart. You honestly believe that there will be a better day when all this won't be necessary. To find that in you, Mr. Faraday, has filled my heart with hope... And I have no place else to go.

J'onn J'onzz: The last time I appeared without warning in this form someone died of fright. Perhaps I should take a friendlier appearance.
King Faraday: Suit yourself.
[J'onn takes a Terran form, but retains his Martian appearance]
J'onn J'onzz: Well?
King Faraday: It's okay. But real men wear pants.

[Batman attempts to rescue a young boy, who recoils at Batman]
J'onn J'onzz: [to Batman] Back off, you're scaring the boy!

Batman: Welcome home, Mr J'onzz.
J'onn J'onzz: Why didn't you backhand me as you did the others?
Batman: That's my secret.


"Justice League: Hereafter (#2.19)" (2003)
J'onn J'onzz: The Justice League is about more than physical power! It's about ideals, caring, helping.
Lobo: Buy me a ticket to Pukesville.

J'onn J'onzz: I must admit, I'm also having doubts about the League's future.
Flash: Never thought I'd hear that kind of talk from you, J'onn.
J'onn J'onzz: How many battles did we win, simply because he was there?
Flash: Yeah. I used to be able to goof around so much because I knew Superman had my back. Now all I've got is his example. And that's gonna have to be enough.

J'onn J'onzz: Though we gather here today bound together in sorrow and loss, we share a precious gift. We are all of us privileged to live a life that has been touched by Superman. The Man of Steel possessed many extraordinary gifts, and he shared them with us freely. None of these gifts were more remarkable than his ability to discern what needed to be done, and his unfailing courage in doing it, whatever the personal cost. Let us all strive to accept his gift and pass it along, as an ongoing tribute to Kal-El of Krypton, the immigrant from the stars who taught us all how to be heroes.

J'onn J'onzz: Batman hasn't arrived. Have you spoken with him?
Wonder Woman: He's still not answering calls. He doesn't handle loss very well.
[at Superman's funeral, people start murmuring]
Hawkgirl: Is that him now? I can't see.
Lois Lane: I can.
[Luthor has appeared among the mourners]
Lois Lane: Luthor, how dare you show your face here!
Lex Luthor: Lois, I...
Lois Lane: [slaps him] Have you come to gloat? You've tried to get rid of him for years! Are you happy now? Isn't this what you've always wanted? I hate you! I HATE YOU!
[she starts beating him with her fists, then collapses into his arms, sobbing]
Lex Luthor: Believe it or not, I'm going to miss him too.


Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths (2010) (V)
Batman: All right, Flash. Beginning test run.
Flash: I don't know, Batman. This is pretty radical. You're absolutely sure it works?
Batman: Pretty sure.
Flash: Pretty sure? That isn't...
[Batman teleports Flash aboard new headquarters]
Flash: ...good enough.
Batman: Teleporter's online.
Flash: Are you crazy? Is he crazy? How could he use that thing on me if the wasn't sure?
J'onn J'onzz: He was joking.
Flash: Yeah, how can you tell?
Wonder Woman: You really think he would risk your life if he wasn't sure?
Flash: Well, maybe. I mean, I don't think he likes me very much.
J'onn J'onzz: I don't think he likes anyone very much.

Wonder Woman: [about Rose] Maybe there's another one like her back on our Earth.
J'onn J'onzz: With my luck, she'll be evil.

J'onn J'onzz: I apologize for reading your mind before. It is considered extremely impolite to do so without permission.
Rose Wilson: I didn't mind. It seemed, I don't know, natural.
J'onn J'onzz: We are attuned. Our minds are in sync to a degree that was rare even among my own people. I never imagined I'd meet a human so complimentary to myself.
Rose Wilson: I feel it, attuned.
[Rose leans in to kiss him]
J'onn J'onzz: What are you doing?
Rose Wilson: Trying to kiss you. On Earth, it's a way of sharing affection.
J'onn J'onzz: This is how we do it on Mars. Know me.

J'onn J'onzz: I've already lost one home. I made a promise to protect my new one.
Rose Wilson: Then this is how we say goodbye.
[they kiss]


"Justice League: Twilight (#2.1)" (2003)
J'onn J'onzz: You, me, Wonder Woman, Superman... all of us are orphans, exiles.
Hawkgirl: Maybe we should call ourselves the 'Just Us' League.

Darkseid: Appraently he's harder to kill than you realized. You know his pattern, Kal-El. Once he's finished siphoning the memory banks, and technology of my planet...
Superman: He'll annihilate it... Good!
Wonder Woman: Superman.
Hawkgirl: What?
J'onn J'onzz: You can't mean it!

J'onn J'onzz: You miss your homeworld very much.
[Hawkgirl looks at him in surprise]
J'onn J'onzz: It doesn't take a telepath to see what's troubling you.

Hawkgirl: Well, it's a long story.
J'onn J'onzz: Earth doesn't seem to be in peril at the moment.


"Justice League: Tabula Rasa: Part II (#2.4)" (2003)
J'onn J'onzz: [thinking] The hatred shouldn't have surprised me. But the selfishness, the sheer volume of it, the cheap attempts to disguise it.
[telepathically to a fox]
J'onn J'onzz: What do you know? A fresh rabbit every now and then and you're happy. At least you're honest. What am I fighting for? *Who* am I fighting for?

Wonder Woman: If that thing copies *your* powers, we'll never be able to take him down.
J'onn J'onzz: But I can't just...
Wonder Woman: You have to.

J'onn J'onzz: We're not your enemy.
Lex Luthor: [Amazo looks at him] You know what to do.
J'onn J'onzz: Yes. You know.

Lex Luthor: Nothing can stop you now. You have all their powers.
J'onn J'onzz: [having just given his to Amazo] Use them well.
Amazo: [Amazo briefly tries using the power he just gained, then suddenly turns to Lex Luthor] So you lied to me.
Lex Luthor: What?
Amazo: It was all a lie, wasn't it?
Lex Luthor: [backs away] I don't know what you're talking about!
Amazo: Then let me spell it out for you! I can read your mind, Lex!
Lex Luthor: If that's true, then you know what this is.
[Pulls out Amazo's kill switch]
Lex Luthor: And that I'm willing to use it!
[Amazo advances on him and he pushes the button on the kill switch, making Amazo's head explode, the heroes gasp as he goes limp for a moment, then his head regenerates]
Amazo: Now it's my turn.


"Justice League: Starcrossed: Part III (#2.26)" (2004)
J'onn J'onzz: [examining Thanagarian controls] I have no idea how to fly this vehicle.
The Flash: [pressing button] What's this do?
[a laser blasts open a window in Wayne Manor]
Batman: [through clenched teeth] That's-not-helping.

J'onn J'onzz: We're running out of time. I'll take the information from him.
The Flash: I thought you said you couldn't read their minds.
J'onn J'onzz: I'll just have to try...
[eyes start glowing yellow]
J'onn J'onzz: *Harder*.
[places his hands on Kragger's head]

[Batman plans to de-orbit the Watchtower and drop it onto the Thanagarian's forcefield generator. He, J'onn, and Flash load the unconscious Thanagarians into the escape pods]
J'onn J'onzz: Is that the last of them?
The Flash: Yeah. The tower's completely pest-free.
Batman: Good.
[He steps back and presses "launch," shutting the door between them]
The Flash: Hey!
[the escape pod launches, leaving Batman behind]
J'onn J'onzz: What are you doing?
Batman: I can't risk having the Watchtower burn up on re-entry. I'll have to guide it in manually. Gentlemen... it's been an honor.


"Supergirl: The Last Children of Krypton (#2.2)" (2016)
Alex Danvers: You promised Kara that you'd be nicer when her cousin was around.
J'onn J'onzz: I said I would try.
Winn Schott: "Do or do not. There is no try."
J'onn J'onzz: Exactly how bad do you want this job, Mr. Schott?

Alex Danvers: Team Krypton was just having too much #toomuchfun. I mean, I've always love being Supergirl. But today...
J'onn J'onzz: Next time it would be nice if you followed protocol and alerted us that an alien combative was no longer an active a threat. Your cousin may not work for the DEO, but you still do.
Alex Danvers: Sorry. We were... we were just having...
J'onn J'onzz: #toomuchfun. Yeah, we know.

Superman: You told me that only the DEO had access to kryptonite. So how would you like to explain what just happened out there A kryptonite powered cyborg almost killed Kara. Almost killed me. Start talking, J'onn.
J'onn J'onzz: A shipment went missing four months ago. We've done all we can to find it.
Winn Schott: Four months ago?
Superman: "Went missing"?
Alex Danvers: Stolen.We thought it was an inside job but everyone in the transport came up clean.
Superman: So you have a mole.
J'onn J'onzz: We don't know that.
Superman: If you'd gotten rid of it when I told you to...
J'onn J'onzz: We would have been helpless when Astra and Non launched Myriad. Or have you forgotten that there was a force not even the Man of Steel couldn't defeat.
Winn Schott: Superman and Martian Manhunter are gonna fight. This is terrible. This is awesome.
Superman: We have given our lives protecting the people of Earth. If you cared about Kara at all...
J'onn J'onzz: Watch what you say.
Superman: Or what?


"Supergirl: Welcome to Earth (#2.3)" (2016)
Supergirl: It's amazing, an executive order allowing aliens on Earth to come out of the shadows and live as full citizens. She's making history.
J'onn J'onzz: Not in my book, I think she's making a big mistake.
Supergirl: Now, how can you of all people say that?
J'onn J'onzz: Because it's been my hard experience that humans and aliens don't mix.
Supergirl: What about you and me?
J'onn J'onzz: What about us? We can look like them, we blend in, a lot of aliens can't. And people in this world don't have much tolerance for others who look different. I say that as an alien and as someone who's worn the face of a black man for 15 years.

Supergirl: I'm meeting the President?
Alex Danvers: Unless you're too nervous to do so.
Supergirl: Nervous? No. Me. I'm not... No, I'm not nervous. No, it's... Nervous? Yeah, yes, yeah, I'm really nervous. I'm nervous! It's the President.
J'onn J'onzz: You'll be representing this entire organization. I expect you'll be professional.
Supergirl: Yes.
J'onn J'onzz: And for the record, she's the one who's lucky to meet you.
Supergirl: Thanks. Should I get a blow out?
J'onn J'onzz: Oh, dear God.

Winn Schott: I've never heard of Daxam.
J'onn J'onzz: It's a sister world to Krypton. Both capable of sustaining life, both orbiting the same sun.
Alex Danvers: You've never mentioned it before.
Supergirl: Hundreds of years ago, Krypton and Daxam fought a bloody war to a stalemate. Thousands of lives were lost on both sides because of a pointless war Daxam started.
Winn Schott: What were they fighting about?
Supergirl: Krypton was a democracy. A world of explorers, philsophers, scientists, and Daxam, was a monarchy. With kings and queens who ruled a population of hoodlums. We had a saying on Krypton for Daxamites, "May tex kolar Daxam."
Alex Danvers: And that means...
Supergirl: Nothing I can repeat in English.


"Justice League: Secret Origins: Part II (#1.2)" (2001)
J'onn J'onzz: The invaders are noctural. They want to blot out the sun so they can live in perpetual darkness.
The Flash: [to Batman] Friends of yours?

J'onn J'onzz: There are no openings.
Wonder Woman: Then we'll make our own.
Batman: [J'onn prepares to chase her but Batman holds him back] Wait. Let's see what she can do.
Wonder Woman: [binds the alien and knocks it against the wall so it's destroyed and a hole is created] There's your opening.
Batman: Not bad.

[Batman just misses getting out of the aliens' lab, sealed behind an opaque barrier Wonder Woman cannot breach. He surrenders the crystal, but the aliens ready their weapons to fire anyway. From the other side, the sound of weapons fire is heard, their impacts distorting the barrier, then stops]
Wonder Woman: No!
J'onn J'onzz: [grabs her shoulder] Wait. There's nothing more we can do for him.
Wonder Woman: You don't mean he's...
J'onn J'onzz: Gone.


"Justice League Unlimited: Destroyer (#3.13)" (2006)
[as the Justice Leaguers leave to pursue the remaining Legion members, J'onn talks into a cell phone]
J'onn J'onzz: I should be home in time for dinner. I love you, too.

[while fighting Parademons over the Great Wall of China, Wonder Woman sees a portly Chinese man run toward them]
Wonder Woman: Get away from here! It's not safe!
Chinese Man: It's all right, I want to help!
Wonder Woman: I appreciate your intent...
[Parademons attack the man. He punches them away with ease]
Wonder Woman: ...Hera!
[the man shape-shifts into a huge Chinese dragon, swatting away swarms of Parademons, then hovers before Diana and transforms into... ]
Wonder Woman: J'onn!
[hugs him]
J'onn J'onzz: Good to see you too, Diana. I've got a lot to tell you about.
Wonder Woman: We'll catch up later.
J'onn J'onzz: [grins] Wouldn't miss it. First thing's first...

Sroya Bashir: [Reporting] This has been the scene all over the world. In the wake of Darkseid's defeat, his attacking forces have withdrawn, persumably back to wherever it is they came from.
Superman: Thanks to Luthor, of all people.
J'onn J'onzz: In many ways, Lex Luthor represents the worst mankind has to offer.
Superman: But he died saving us all.
Batman: I doubt either of them died.
Superman: We saw it this time.
The Flash: You saw it last time too.
Green Lantern: What's the old saying? Believe half of what you see...
Shayera Hol: ...And none of what you hear. They'll be back.
J'onn J'onzz: And we'll be ready for them.


"Justice League: Twilight: Part II (#2.2)" (2003)
Batman: [in battle] Having fun?
J'onn J'onzz: Yes.

Batman: [studying Darkseid's computer] Cover me.
J'onn J'onzz: [uses the blaster from a damaged Braniac clone to destroy another] My pleasure.

J'onn J'onzz: [shielding] Get back!
Hawkgirl: [blazes out from behind him] No way!


"Justice League: The Savage Time: Part II (#1.25)" (2002)
J'onn J'onzz: You age gracefully.
Vandal Savage: You have no idea.

Vandal Savage: Who would have thought the Ubermensch would be green?
J'onn J'onzz: Ubermensch?
Vandal Savage: The superior man. Those destined to lead the world.
J'onn J'onzz: I thought that was your goal.
Vandal Savage: My only desire is peace, progress, unity...
J'onn J'onzz: With you in charge, of course.
Vandal Savage: Why not?

Vandal Savage: How many others did you bring with you? What are their powers?
J'onn J'onzz: I'll never betray them.
Vandal Savage: We'll see.
[Savage leaves the room, passing another Nazi officer]
Vandal Savage: He's yours, Josef. Perhaps your powers of persuasion will loosen his tongue.
Josef: [pulling on rubber gloves] Has anyone ever held anything back from me, Mein Fuhrer?


"Supergirl: Survivors (#2.4)" (2016)
J'onn J'onzz: Who runs the fights?
M'gann M'orzz: Why?
J'onn J'onzz: So I can stop them!
M'gann M'orzz: You don't know who you'd be going up against. She has powerful friends.
J'onn J'onzz: So do I. They're using you. Watching you fight like an animal.
M'gann M'orzz: No, I don't fight for them. I fight for myself. This is the reality that we live in. This is the world you've created.
J'onn J'onzz: So, what's in it for you? The money? The thrill of the kill?
M'gann M'orzz: I have never killed anyone in the ring. You don't understand.
J'onn J'onzz: Then make my understand! We're the last of our kind. There's no one else. It's our responsibility to preserve everything we've lost.
M'gann M'orzz: That's the difference between us. I don't want to remember. You want to still be there. You want to relive it, over and over. I don't. I wanna forget.
J'onn J'onzz: I will never forget my wife and daughters.
M'gann M'orzz: They're dead. We're alive.
J'onn J'onzz: God help you, M'gann. You're lost.
M'gann M'orzz: She calls herself Roulette. Her real name is Veronica Sinclair. Don't come back here.

Winn Schott: Did you know his heard is on the other side?
J'onn J'onzz: That's absolutely fascinating. You know, the DEO received reports this morning of a six-foot alien attacking two men in a bar last night.
Winn Schott: The news is so very violent these days.
J'onn J'onzz: Apparently this alien had a 5'2" sidekick.
Winn Schott: I am 5'9"!

Supergirl: Hey, what's with the grumpy? Today and yesterday.
Alex Danvers: Is everything all right, J'onn?
J'onn J'onzz: I appreciate the concern, but I assure you, I'm fine.
Supergirl: Don't make me pout.
Alex Danvers: She's really good at it.


"Batman: The Brave and the Bold: Darkseid Descending! (#2.23)" (2010)
Martian Munhunter: Excuse me, but do you mind? I have this thing about fire.
Fire: I bet you do.

Martian Munhunter: Now, this is our training room. I'm reminded when Big Blue himself challenged me to an arm wrestling competition here. Of course, my compatriots warned me this would surely be a losing battle, but I brought something more than brute force to the table - I brought physics. Well, the day approached, and...
Aquaman: By Neptune's trident, you do not know how to tell a story.
Martian Munhunter: Sorry. I sometimes tend to prattle on. Cookie, anyone?

Aquaman: An adventure calls!
Guy Gardner: Let's get down there so you punks can see a real hero in action.
Ice: The Greeks must be stopped!
Booster Gold: I gotta text my publicist. Skeets, how many P's in "impending?"
Skeets: One, sir.
Fire: Is this suit too short for world-saving?
Blue Beetle: Um, I wonder if it's short enough?
Martian Munhunter: Quiet! Listen, people. This team is not about egos or wardrobes or publicity. It's about handling threats larger than any hero can alone. When history remembers this group and its first mission, will it be of individuals who could not get the job done? Or will it be the greatest superhero team ever assembled, saving the world in its darkest hour?


"Justice League: Paradise Lost (#1.8)" (2002)
The Flash: Picture it. The sun, the sea, hundreds of women just like her running around, and me, the first man they've seen in... oh, maybe forever? Oh, and look what I brought. Iced Mochas for everyone. Sweet.
J'onn J'onzz: I fail to see the attraction.
The Flash: Man, you really are from Mars.

The Flash: [the Flash manages to distract a giant fire-breathing snake for a while, then runs to J'onn J'onzz] You okay?
J'onn J'onzz: You get the relic, I'll handle the rest.
[the Flash dashes off to get the relic as the snake lunges at J'onn, who hits it hard with a punch to the jaw, it collapses onto the ground out cold]
The Flash: [Runs beside J'onn with the relic] Remind me to never get on *your* bad side.

J'onn J'onzz: I'm afraid that leaves with but one course of action. We'll have to help you.


"Justice League Unlimited: To Another Shore (#3.4)" (2005)
J'onn J'onzz: Mr. Terrific is more that capable, but I insist on remaining where I am needed.
Wonder Woman: Turn around and talk to me.
[J'onn turns to Diana]
Wonder Woman: You've been cooped up like a hermit in the Watchtower for almost two years now.
J'onn J'onzz: I can better serve the League...
Wonder Woman: We're not even gonna have that argument. You're a super-strong, near-invulnerable, telepathic shape-shifter. The reason you aren't on the ground protecting humanity is because you don't want to be. You don't actually like humanity all that much, do you?
J'onn J'onzz: ...I don't dislike them.
Wonder Woman: You're not the only newcomer to this world around here. People have strange ways and take a lot of getting used to.But it's worth the effort. They're worth it.
Green Arrow: She's got your number, J'onn. You need to mingle, maybe take a meal in the commissary every once in awhile.
J'onn J'onzz: My Martian physiology doesn't require as many meals as a human.
Wonder Woman: You know what he means. You must be terribly lonely. I've gotta go, but we're not done talking about this.

J'onn J'onzz: I've been thinking about what you said, and about the horrible despair of Prince Jon's life. I'm a Martian, I'll live far longer than he did, and unless I find a way to connect with humanity, I'll live out that time totally alone. I can't learn what I need learn on the Watchtower.


"Justice League Unlimited: Task Force X (#2.4)" (2005)
John Stewart: How did you know Vance was the inside man?
J'onn J'onzz: He was the only one on the tower who's mind I couldn't read. Cadmus must had supplied him with a sophisticated method of masking his thoughts.
John Stewart: So... what do we do with him now?
J'onn J'onzz: I'd like to go in there and wipe clean the last two years of his memory.
John Stewart: Woah! That's alittle harsh, don't ya think?
J'onn J'onzz: He's a liability.
John Stewart: I'm sure he's already spilled everything he knows to Cadmus.
J'onn J'onzz: Don't you understand? We can't trust him!
John Stewart: J'onn... we can't trust anyone now.

Rick Flagg Jr.: We're in.
J'onn J'onzz: [Flying down] Ask yourselves, is being in here with me what you truly desire?
Rick Flagg Jr.: Get out of the way, Martian.


"Justice League: Hearts and Minds (#2.9)" (2003)
The Flash: Lucky for the Big K we've got Martian care on our League HMO.
J'onn J'onzz: Bolovax's physiology is very similar to my own.
Hawkgirl: And how much of this is guesswork?
J'onn J'onzz: ...I would rather not say.

The Flash: Hey, big guy.
Kilowog: Hey, little poozer.
J'onn J'onzz: He'll be fine now.
The Flash: Great. Can we keep 'im?


"Justice League: Comfort and Joy (#2.23)" (2003)
J'onn J'onzz: Hello, Mr. and Mrs. Kent. I hope I'm not disturbing you. Super... uh, Clark, was most insistent that I spend the holidays with you. My name is J'onn... I'm a Martian.
Pa Kent: Oh, we're no strangers to aliens in this house. You just make yourself at home.

Ma Kent: [after J'onn puts on his sweater] I wasn't sure about the size...
[J'onn shape-shifts, expanding his upper body to fill out the sweater]
J'onn J'onzz: [smiles] I can grow into it.


Injustice: Gods Among Us (2013) (VG)
Martian Manhunter: I will defend Earth.

Martian Manhunter: Someone has to stop you.
Superman: Won't be you.


"Justice League: Legends: Part II (#1.17)" (2002)
J'onn J'onzz: The nuclear fallout from the war mutated his DNA, giving him the ability to mold this world to his choosing.
Hawkgirl: So he chose to recreate it with the heroes he worshipped as a child.
The Flash: Who could blame 'im?

Green Lantern: Haven't you noticed that nothing here makes sense? Library books with blank pages. Ice cream trucks that never stop.
Hawkgirl: Dangers that spring up whenever someone gets too close to the truth.
Green Guardsman: What truth?
Green Lantern: That your world is an illusion, a living memory of a civilization that was destroyed 30 years ago. When The Justice Guild gave their lives for this Earth,
[Tosses the newspaper with the headline JGA Killed In Battle in front of them]
Green Lantern: that's why they stopped publishing the comic in our world. No more Justice Guild.
Hawkgirl: And anytime someone tries to figure things out...
The Flash: ...nuns and dynamite.
Tom Turbine: If what you say is true, who or what is creating this illusion?
J'onn J'onzz: I suggest you ask Ray.
The Streak: Ray?
Ray Thompson: Why would I know anything?
J'onn J'onzz: Because you are the source.
[puts his hands on Ray's shoulders, then his eyes glow followed by Ray's glowing as well, then Ray suddenly cringes]
Ray Thompson: NOOOOOOOOO!
[He morphs into his true self, a mutated creature with torn up clothes and different length arms and a big head, everyone else gasps in shock]
Ray Thompson: You ruined it! You ruined everything!
[fires a beam from his forehead right into J'onn J'onzz's chest, knocking him back towards The Flash, Cat Man, and Black Siren who catch him as he falls unconscious, then a giant red mechanical monster tears the roof off]
The Flash: That's it, I officially want to go home.


"Justice League: The Savage Time (#1.24)" (2002)
[a new timeline exists in which Wayne's parents were killed by Vandal Savage, and he leads the rebellion against Savage]
J'onn J'onzz: You understand that if we do change the past, you, this version of you, will never have existed?
Bruce Wayne: ...*Nothing* would make me happier.

Steve Trevor: An angel. I must be in Heaven.
Wonder Woman: You're not dead. Are you a deserter or a spy?
Steve Trevor: I'm not sure I should tell you.
Wonder Woman: Well, I did just save your life. Why were they trying to shoot you?
Steve Trevor: Just between you and me, I got something they want.
Wonder Woman: Go on.
Steve Trevor: Word is, they're planning an invasion of England, and I have a way of finding out when and where. But it's not gonna mean a thing if I don't get to France, so if you'll excuse me.
[she helps him rise and he kisses her hand as he starts to go]
Steve Trevor: And if you're ever stateside after this is over, look me up. The name's Trevor. Steve Trevor.
[he goes over the fence when J'onn flies down in front of him]
Steve Trevor: Whoa.
[aims his gun at him]
Wonder Woman: It's all right. He's with me.
Steve Trevor: [lowering his gun] You're sure?
J'onn J'onzz: These new weapons the Axis has. Where did they come from?
Steve Trevor: Some genius named Vandal Savage. The High Command was so impressed they made him their new Fuhrer.
Wonder Woman: Vandal Savage made these weapons?
Steve Trevor: Yeah, he's still got a lab over on Grunstraasit, but you'll never get in. I've tried.
J'onn J'onzz: I have a feeling it'll be easier for me.
[decreases his density to disappear through the ground]
Steve Trevor: You're sure I'm not dead?


"Justice League: Legends (#1.16)" (2002)
Ray Thompson: Can I come? Can I? Can I?
J'onn J'onzz: I would hesitate to put the boy in harm's way.
Cat Man: Sure thing, little buddy!
Ray Thompson: Oh, boy!

J'onn J'onzz: [being advanced upon by a trio of unfamiliar superheroes] It seems we are not in Metropolis anymore.
Green Lantern: Yeah, I got that.


"Supergirl: Better Angels (#1.20)" (2016)
Supergirl: I just... we both know what I'm up against, and I will save the Earth, I promise you that. I just don't know if I'll make it out alive. I didn't say the things that needed to be said when I left Krypton, and I wanted to make sure I said them now - just in case.
J'onn J'onzz: I was exactly where you are, Kara. And when I was, you told me to never give up.
Supergirl: I'm not giving up. But my mother didn't send me to Earth to fall in love with a human, have children, live in a house with a white picket fence. She sent me here to protect Kal-El. And now I will use my powers to protect the Earth. And if I die achieving that, I'm at peace with it. I'll join my mother. We'll be together in Rao's light.

J'onn J'onzz: You didn't say goodbye to your sister.
Supergirl: If I say goodbye, I'm never leaving.


Justice League: Doom (2012) (V)
The Flash: Batman, you okay?
Batman: I'll live.
Superman: So will Ace, apparently.
Martian Manhunter: He's still a little embarrassed from last time.
Superman: He sucker-punched me.

Cheetah: No technology, no superheroes, no functioning governments.
Vandal Savage: Except the one we control.
Martian Manhunter: That's quite an ambitious plan. No wonder you wanted us out of the way.
Vandal Savage: I thought you took care of him.
Ma'alefa'ak: He should've been burning for weeks.
Martian Manhunter: Don't feel bad. Actually, none of you managed to finish the job. Did you get all that?
[Justice League teleports in the Hall of Doom]
Superman: We did. Take them down.


"Young Justice: Failsafe (#1.16)" (2011)
Martian Manhunter: No, my mind is clearer now. The disintegration beam is exactly that. There is no detention facility. No prisoners to rescue. Our mission holds no purpose.
Kid Flash: NO! You're wrong. The Zeta radiation proves she's alive. She's...
Robin: Stop it, KF. I've been scanning for League and team signals since we got inside. They're not here. Artemis is gone. But our mission still holds purpose - to destroy this mother ship.

Batman: As bad as all that?
Martian Manhunter: Perhaps worse.
Red Tornado: Yet this is not what troubles you.
Martian Manhunter: Make no mistake. My niece is untrained and cannot be held responsible for this - for *our* debacle.
Batman: No one blames her. But clearly we underestimated her abilities.
Martian Manhunter: You understate it. In terms of raw power, she has the strongest telepathic mind I have ever encountered. Stronger by far than mine.


"Justice League Unlimited: The Greatest Story Never Told (#1.7)" (2004)
J'onn J'onzz: The dark lord, Mordru.
Booster Gold: You okay? You sound nervous or something.
J'onn J'onzz: I have never sensed such malevolent magic in one being. Unless Mordru can be defeated, I fear for every living creature on the planet.
Booster Gold: [excitedly] Yes!

Booster Gold: Come on, J'onn! You've gotta put me on some higher profile missions! Grodd? Darkseid? Any chance the Joker's planning something super nasty?
J'onn J'onzz: I fail to understand your obsession with fame.
Booster Gold: Not fame. Mega-fame! Much more than like "your" level of fame... No offence. But you have a hard-to-pronounce name. It doesn't stick in the mind. Now, "Booster Gold", don't ya just love saying it?
J'onn J'onzz: That is the attitude that keeps you on the sidelines.


"Justice League: Tabula Rasa (#2.3)" (2003)
Superman: I realize it's a lot to ask, but Luthor...
J'onn J'onzz: I know.
[turning to face him]
J'onn J'onzz: He must be stopped.
Superman: [sharing a smile with him] Smart guy.

Superman: Where are you?
J'onn J'onzz: I can't talk now.
Superman: Are you all right?
J'onn J'onzz: Leave me alone!
[flings the communicator down from his ear and stomps on it]


"Static Shock: A League of Their Own: Part 1 (#3.6)" (2003)
Brainiac: [CD-like skipping] Noooo! No! No, I can-can-can-cannan-cannot be-be-be-beaten! I am Braaaaainiac! Brai-brai-brai-brai-brai-Brainy Brainiac!
Static: Got to... hold on!
Brainiac: Brai-brai-brai-brai-Brainy Brainiac! One-one-one-one-one day I-I will be-be-be back be back be back and and and and and I will... laaaay the funk down!
Gear: Yo, Brainiac's not too bad on the mike.
Static: Mixmaster Brainiac. Now that's phat!
Martian Manhunter: Yes. Very "phat", indeed.


"Young Justice: Targets (#1.10)" (2011)
Kaldur'ahm: A last name will also be required.
J'onn J'onzz: Perhaps... Kent.
M'gann M'orzz: Oh! In memory of Dr. Fate. The late *Kent* Nelson.
J'onn J'onzz: Of... course.
Conner Kent: Ok. Sure. I guess it would be an honor or something.


"Justice League: In Blackest Night: Part II (#1.5)" (2001)
Superman: See anything wrong with this picture?
J'onn J'onzz: Where do I start? The loss of life, the echoes of our own pasts?


"Justice League: War World (#1.10)" (2002)
J'onn J'onzz: Which way now?
Superman: [a laser-shot fires at them] Not *that* way.


"Supergirl: The Adventures of Supergirl (#2.1)" (2016)
Supergirl: This has always been here? With the glass and the view and... And you made me fly through the cave every day!
J'onn J'onnz: DEO has several facilities, Kara.
Supergirl: A bat bit me in the last one.
J'onn J'onnz: Whiner.


"Supergirl: Human for a Day (#1.7)" (2015)
Hank Henshaw: I am not Hank Henshaw. He died the same night as your father. The DEO had been pursuing an alien for months. Not one of Fort Rozz prisoners, but an innocent one that was stranded on this planet. With the help of your father, the DEO tracked the alien to a remote location in Peru. Henshaw led the squadron sent to terminate him.
Alex Danvers: My father would never have been part of that mission.
Hank Henshaw: You're right. Jeremiah Danvers was a good man. He realized the alien we were hunting was no threat. He was a refugee, like your sister. Sole survivor of a lost world. Your father tried to stop the mission, but Henshaw was obsessed. He finally trapped the alien was hunting for so long. So, Jeremiah made the ultimate sacrifice. He gave his life to save that alien. Your father died a hero.
Alex Danvers: That alien... Is that you? But how are you him?
Hank Henshaw: I am a shape shifter. When Hank Henshaw died, I assumed his identity to reform the DEO. But I also made your father a promise, that I would take care of his daughter. I recruited you so that I would honor that promise and protect you as if you were my own child.
Alex Danvers: If you're not Hank Henshaw, who are you?
[transforms into his martian shape]
J'onn J'onzz: I am the sole survivor of my planet. The Last Son of Mars. My name is J'onn J'onzz.


"Justice League: A Better World (#2.11)" (2003)
[while meeting with J'onn J'onzz of the Justice Lords, the Justice League counterparts from another dimension]
Batman: Have you read his mind yet?
J'onn J'onzz: Martians don't do that to one another.
Batman: Can't... or won't?
J'onn J'onzz: Both.


"Justice League: War World: Part II (#1.11)" (2002)
[after Superman wins, Mongul orders him to finish Draaga off. When Superman refuses, Mongul orders him executed]
J'onn J'onzz: No, the Kryptonian won! Don't you want to see him fight again?
Alien: I gotta admit, he's a real champ!
J'onn J'onzz: He's more than that. He's a super-man!
[as the robot guards blast Superman]
Mongul: What? Still alive? You're tougher than I thought, Kryptonian. But I doubt you'll survive another blast.
Superman: Take your best shot.
Mongul: Guards...!
J'onn J'onzz: [stands, cheering] SUPERMAN! SUPERMAN! SUPERMAN!
Alien: [cheering] Superman! Superman! Superman!
[the entire crowd starts cheering]
Mongul: Are they mad?


"Justice League: Paradise Lost: Part II (#1.9)" (2002)
The Flash: After she hands out the medals, how about you and me take a private tour of paradise?
[gets a confused look from the Amazon]
The Flash: She wants me.
J'onn J'onzz: [sarcastically] Indeed.


"Justice League: Secret Origins (#1.1)" (2001)
Superman: [referring to Batman] Don't take it personally, J'onn; he doesn't trust anyone.
J'onn J'onzz: A wise policy.


"Justice League: Metamorphosis: Part II (#1.23)" (2002)
Hawkgirl: It's totally mindless.
J'onn J'onzz: No, I sensed a mind within the creature: incomplete, irrational, and driven only by base desires.
Metamorpho: Maybe the computer feedback from the accident transferred part of Stagg's mind into it.


"The Batman: Lost Heroes: Part One (#5.12)" (2008)
Batgirl: So how am I typing like this?
Martian Manhunter: I'm feeding the codes into your brain.
Batgirl: Woah! We've gotta talk about personal boundries after this is over.


"Justice League: Eclipsed: Part II (#2.14)" (2003)
[as the sun is slowly going out]
Superman: How can we stop it?
J'onn J'onzz: There is one possibility. To halt the process, we would need to create an Einstein-Rosen bridge to drain off the infecting anti-fusion matter.
The Flash: Create a what to do what?
Hawkgirl: Make a wormhole to suck away the bad stuff.
The Flash: Oh.


"Young Justice: Disordered (#1.17)" (2011)
Batman: How are they?
Martian Manhunter: I am still shaken by what you and I have wrought. One can only imagine what these youths fair.
Batman: I know our virtual reality training simulation went badly, but I'd hoped the team would've rallied by now.
Martian Manhunter: Trauma tends to linger, as I know you know, my friend.


"Justice League: Injustice for All (#1.18)" (2002)
J'onn J'onzz: You really should be resting... I know this must be hard for you, feeling vulnerable. You're the only one of us who doesn't have special powers. But you don't have to prove yourself. You're a valued member of this team and we're only trying to...
Batman: I'm taking the shuttle.


"Justice League: Hearts and Minds: Part II (#2.10)" (2003)
Shifflet: But I must admit, it does look hopeless.
J'onn J'onzz: Only if you believe it to be, is it so.


Justice League Heroes (2006) (VG)
Batman: You ready to talk to us again?
Superman: Sure. If by talk, you mean kicking Darkseid's ass into low orbit.
Batman: Then I think we can do business.
Martian Manhunter: What's the plan?
Batman: We attack in waves. Minimize the chance of us all being defeated at once.
Flash: Once we're committed, we don't stop until it's over. One way or the other.
Superman: Only one way: Darkseid's going down.


Superhero Fight Club 2.0 (2016) (V)
Martian Manhunter: Anyone in a betting mood? My money's on Supergirl.
John Diggle: [drops his hamburger as J'onn morphs into Martian Manhunter] Did you guys know he's an alien?
Cisco Ramon, Felicity Smoak: Yes.


Justice League of America (1997) (TV)
J'onn J'onnz: Don't worry about me. Where I come from, 300 degrees is a beach day!


"Young Justice: Agendas (#1.22)" (2012)
J'onn J'onzz: Another expansion of the League could generate another escalation of hostilities from our enemies. No one needs or wants another Injustice League.
Superman: Point taken. But the option remains to vote no on all candidates. So, I nominate Icon for League membership.
[a hologram of Icon appears]
Green Arrow: [chuckles] Why? Because you suspect Icon might be Kryptonian like you did with Captain Marvel?
Captain Marvel: You thought I was Kryptonian? Cool!
Wonder Woman: [to Superman] Icon interests me also. As does his protegé, Rocket.
[Rocket's hologram replaces Icon's]
Wonder Woman: [to Black Canary and Hawkgirl] Athena knows the League could use more female members.
Black Canary: Agreed.
Hawkwoman: Hear, hear!


"Justice League Unlimited: Hunter's Moon (#2.8)" (2005)
J'onn J'onzz: Wait. I'm assigning a support team.
Shayera Hol: Don't need one. I'll handle it myself.
J'onn J'onzz: That wasn't a suggestion.


"Justice League Unlimited: The Doomsday Sanction (#2.3)" (2005)
Superman: Did Cadmus create you?
[Doomsday doesn't answer]
Superman: J'onn?
The Martian Manhunter: I can't read his mind. His brain's been altered to resist me.
Superman: You don't owe them anything. They manipulated you and then tried to kill you.
Doomsday: So I keep hearing.
Superman: From who?
Doomsday: All you need to know is that I will get free, and I will kill you.
Superman: If that's your final word...
[Superman gets a Phantom Zone projector out]
Superman: I only use this as a last resort. It's going to send you to another dimension. You won't be hurt, but you also won't hurt anyone else again.
Doomsday: You'll wish you'd killed me.


"Justice League Unlimited: Flashpoint (#2.10)" (2005)
Superman: [entering the Watchtower control room with Supergirl] Give me one good reason not to go down there and take them out.
J'onn J'onzz: If you didn't know the answer, you wouldn't have bothered to ask.
Superman: Don't handle me, J'onn! I'm serious!
J'onn J'onzz: We don't have hard evidence that they've committed any crimes.
Superman: Oh, come on! You know they're dirty!
Oliver Queen: Then maybe we should put more effort into proving it and less into acting like a bunch of hyperthyroid stormtroopers.
Superman: I don't remember asking you for your opinion!
Oliver Queen: No? How about when you guys hijacked me up here against my will and made me join this team? Batman said I was supposed to keep you guys honest.
Superman: [menacingly] Do I look like Batman to you?
The Flash: Actually, you kinda do. Especially when you're all scowly like that.
Superman: We can't let Cadmus get away with it.
J'onn J'onzz: No one's saying we should, but we have to keep a cool head.
Supergirl: Do you know what they did to me?
Oliver Queen: Look, kid, Hamilton's a piece of garbage. Luthor's worse. But this isn't the way to stop them.
J'onn J'onzz: We must also consider the possibility that Cadmus is right to be afraid of us...
Supergirl: [outraged] What!
J'onn J'onzz: ...*and* there's strong evidence of Cadmus having connections to the government.
Superman: Maybe, to some rogue black ops group. The real government wouldn't get involved in anything like this.
Oliver Queen: Hey, I'm the only guy in the room who doesn't have superpowers, and let me tell you, you guys scare me. What if you do decide to go down there, taking care of whoever you think is guilty? Who could stop you? Me?
Supergirl: So you *want* the government to have a bunch of superhuman weapons just to keep us in check?
Oliver Queen: No - I don't know - Yeah!
[regains composure]
Oliver Queen: Look, I'm an old lefty. The government must do for people what people can't do for themselves. The people sure can't protect themselves from the likes of us.
Superman: We're not talking about the government, we're talking about a shadow cabinet that's taken it upon themselves to eliminate us! They came after us, we have to hit them back hard!
The Flash: Grammy Flash used to say that the trouble with "an eye for an eye" is that everyone ends up blind.


"Supergirl: Changing (#2.6)" (2016)
Winn Schott: So, after this SOS went out, nobody has been able to get in touch with them. The government put the whole place under quarrantine until the DEO could investigate.
J'onn J'onzz: All right. Supergirl and I will fly up there...
[seeing Kara asleep face-down on the tabletop]
J'onn J'onzz: [sighs] Alex and I will take the jet. Let's go.


"Justice League: Maid of Honor: Part II (#2.8)" (2003)
J'onn J'onzz: Batman, we couldn't prevent the railgun from discharging!
Batman: Me neither. But I did manage to change the targeting coordinates.
Wonder Woman: Where'd you send it?
Batman: [smiles] Right here.


"Justice League: Secret Society: Part II (#2.18)" (2003)
The Flash: [trying to high-five Superman] Whoo, back in business!
[no response]
The Flash: Are-aren't we?
Wonder Woman: A lot of things were said.
The Flash: Yeah, but that was all brain control. We didn't mean...
J'onn J'onzz: We meant every word.
Hawkgirl: ...So what do we do?
Green Lantern: All we can do is say we're sorry and move on.


"Justice League: Hereafter: Part II (#2.20)" (2003)
J'onn J'onzz: You were greatly missed, my friend. By all of us.
[everyone looks to a stoic Batman]
Wonder Woman: Don't let him fool you. Your death hit him as hard as it did any of us.
Superman: Really?
Batman: No. I never believed you were dead in the first place.
Superman: I guess that's sort of a compliment.


"Justice League Unlimited: Clash (#2.7)" (2005)
Batman: J'onn! We're in trouble!
J'onn J'onzz: Are you asking for help?
Batman: Yes!
J'onn J'onzz: You never ask for help.


"Supergirl: Medusa (#2.8)" (2016)
Cyborg Superman: You're a monster, and I'm gonna send you back to hell.
J'onn J'onzz: You're finally right, Henshaw. I am a monster.
[J'onn transforms into a giant Martian and attacks him]


"Supergirl: Manhunter (#1.17)" (2016)
Hank Henshaw: I designed these bullets especially for you, Martian. "The most powerful being on the face of this Earth." You know who calls you that? Superman. Sure means something, coming from him.
J'onn J'onzz: I mean you no harm.


"Justice League: In Blackest Night (#1.4)" (2001)
J'onn J'onzz: Wonder Woman is on another case. Superman's dealing with an earthquake. And Batman would only say that he's busy.
Hawkgirl: Typical.


"Justice League: The Brave and the Bold: Part II (#1.13)" (2002)
Hawkgirl: Proximity alert at twelve-o'clock.
J'onn J'onzz: I see nothing.
Wonder Woman: Batman designed this ship. If it says something is there -
[the shuttle strikes something invisible]
J'onn J'onzz: Hold on!
[manages to even its descent enough to land after a few bumps then gets out with the others to see the exterior damage]
J'onn J'onzz: Your faith in Batman's engineering-skills was well-founded.


"Supergirl: Strange Visitor from Another Planet (#1.11)" (2016)
J'onn J'onzz: [after putting Kryptonite restraints on Supergirl] I'm sorry. But I can't let you stop me.
Supergirl: J'onn. J'onn. J'onn. Listen to me. I lost everything - everyone. It makes a hole in your heart. But you can't fall into it. You have to fill it. You have to fight. Do not throw away who you are. If you do that thing wins. The last son of Mars dies even if you're still standing.


"Justice League Action: Power Outage (Shazam Slam Part 2) (#1.2)" (2016)
Martian Manhunter: This is one COOL volcano!
[to Batman]
Martian Manhunter: My attempt at humor. How did I do?
Batman: I'm the wrong one to ask.


"Justice League: Only a Dream (#2.5)" (2003)
The Flash: What were you working on?
J'onn J'onzz: Nothing. I was taking a nap.
