TRY AND TRY AGAIN: Death of Martian Manunter

Killing superheroes is hard.

You can't just step up and shoot them in the face. Generally. You have to take them out over time. And sometimes you have to try and re-try the same method before it's actually effective. Just ask Grant.

In 2008's Final Crisis #1, Grant successfully killed the Martian Manhunter in a pretty depressingly bleak scene by way of the newly revived Libra and his fire staff/sword. And all while in front of a group of villains, no less!

But that wasn't without some practice on Grant's part.

In Grant's JLA: Classified #3 (2005), Martian Manhunter just barely escapes a similar death-skewering at the hands of Olympian!

Martian Manhunter was able to walk away from that fight, but as we know, he couldn't dodge an inevitable impalement from Grant for very long.
