Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun in the Milky Way galaxy, and the home planet of Martians.



Mars was once the home of several green-skinned, telepathic, shapeshifting beings known as Martians, with one such being traveling to Earth and posing under the guise of Secretary of Defense Calvin Swanwick.[1]

By 1999, it was commonly claimed that humanity had better maps of Mars than it did of Earth's ocean floor.[2]

When Kal-El activated the Kryptonian scout ship in the Arctic and took off, there were two visible screens, one of them seemingly a live feed, or picture of, the Martian surface.[3]

Behind the scenes

  • In the DC Comics universe, Mars is home to a race of sentient, psychic shapeshifters called Martians. They are split into two factions, the parasitic and malevolent White Martians, and the benevolent Green Martians.
    • J'onn J'onnz, a Green Martian refugee of the planet, is typically one of the main members comprising the original Justice League roster, known as the Martian Manhunter.
  • Mars is the name given to Ares by Romans.
