Martian Manhunter (J’onn J’onzz) is a DC comics superhero who’s the last green martian. He has a lot of superpowers, such as super strength, flight, and shapeshifting (here’s the wiki for more info and powers). He wasn’t often in anything except comics until the early 2000’s Justice League cartoon series. In the recent Supergirl TV series, audiences found out he would be a major character in the series this December.
The show made me think of the character’s design, and, for some reason, how I could do it in origami. Specifically, he has these red suspenders/bandoliers/somethings that cross as a red X across his torso. I figured I could do something like this with paper green on one side and red on the other.
I think I like my design, although it’s a little basic. I usually don’t like features on a humanoid face for some reason, so I avoided that. I was thinking of adding fingers, but I’m still deciding how much I like it and if I should keep it simple on this one. His blue undies and cape can also be included by painting a diagonal center blue on the red side before folding.
P.S. I’d also like to say that I like the show (Supergirl), their version of Martian Manhunter, and how they introduced him, but I was trying to stay on topic and not go off the rails with the all the DC and Marvel films and TV shows.
