~ Ma'alefa'ak

Ma'alefa'ak is the evil twin brother of Martian Manhunter and an enemy of the Justice League and an archenemy of his brother in the DC franchise.

Biography

When Ma'alefa'ak mind-raped J'onn J'onzz's wife, M'yri'ah, Ma'alefa'ak was stripped of his telepathic powers and his weakness to fire and his memories of this were erased. Ma'alefa'ak thought that he was the only Martian born without telepathy or a weakness to fire. Because of this, he felt ostracized. Because of this, he created a plague called "H’ronmeer’s Curse". Every time a Martian used their telepathic powers, they would succumb to the plague and burn to death. When this happened, J'onn J'onzz was teleported away against his will to survive. Ma'alefa'ak learned only years later that his brother went to Earth, so he followed him. He's been plotting to defeat his brother and the Justice League since. Ma'alefa'ak encountered his brother more than once.

But, in one of the times Ma'alefa'ak faced off Martian Manhuter, The Manhunter was able to finally silence Ma'alefa'ak by undoing the telepathic block that stripped Ma'alefa'ak of his telepathy. Unfortunately, this also restored his weakness to fire. Because of him not knowing how to activate telepathic barriers to protect him from fire. Ma'alefa'ak was consumed by the sun when Martian Manhunter threw him into a vessel too close to the sun.

New 52

Ma'alefa'ak was brought back when the DC Universe was rebooted with the New 52. In the rebooted universe, Ma'alefa'ak and other Earth-born Martian survivors that survived the near extinction of their race, built a giant weapon so they and infiltrate and enslave the Earth.

Other Media

Television

  • Ma'alefa'ak appears in the third season of Young Justice. This version of the character is M'Comm M'orzz, the younger brother of M'gann and thus a White Martian.
  • Malefic J'onzz appears in the season four finale of Supergirl. Monitor frees him from an unknown place and sets him loose on Earth-38 to seek vengeance on his brother J'onn J'onzz. However, unlike his comic version, Malefic J'onzz is a tragic figure, as his villainy came from being bullied and the lack of support from his own family. As such, J'onn actively tries to redeem him, which ultimately results in Malefic and J'onn reconciling and embracing, proving Malefic is a redeemable figure in this continuity.

Film

Ma'alefa'ak in Justice League: Doom.

Malefic appears as one of the lead villains in Justice League: Doom. He is a member of Vandal Savage's new Legion of Doom and is tasked with killing J'onn. He was voiced by Carl Lumbly, who also voiced Martian Manhunter. He ultimately appears to be killed in the film's climax, as he battles his brother he is in the path of the exhaust of Vandal Savage's recently launched rocket.
