J'onn J'onzz / Sam Spade

The Martian Manhunter is a detective, last of the red planet's once-proud race of shapeshifting telepaths- he achieved widespread fame and celebrity status from his world-saving and humanitarian antics with the Justice League, but dropped out without comment (or much media attention).

No-one knows where he is.


"Spade has no original. He is a dream man in the sense that he is what most of the private detectives I worked with would like to have been and in their cockier moments thought they approached. For your private detective does not — or did not ten years ago when he was my colleague — want to be an erudite solver of riddles in the Sherlock Holmes manner; he wants to be a hard and shifty fellow, able to take care of himself in any situation, able to get the best of anybody he comes in contact with, whether criminal, innocent by-stander or client." (Introduction to The Maltese Falcon (1934 edition))


John Jones, Private Eye. Women love him, men envy him, law enforcement abhor him; he cares for none of them, he only knows that he has a job to do. His diminutive assistant Tim knows everything and says little.
