Justice League: A Better World
As a race of shapeshifters from planet Mars, physical appearance has little meaning for Martians. The underlying psychological differences are what separated the peaceful Green Martians from the war-like Whites. White Martians have configured their physiology to reflect their philosophy, becoming a separate race from the Green Martians, and the Yellow Martians. Their preferred form is that of angular, hairless humanoids with chalky white skin which often forms bony ridges or plates, giving them the appearance of armor. They have sometimes been seen to have a gaping mouth on their thorax and a horn on the same level on each side. Like the Green Martians, White Martians have numerous superhuman powers and as well their vulnerability to fire. White Martians tried to infiltrate and invade Earth-50 during the events of White Martians Invasion but were defeated by the Justice Lords.
At some point in Earth’s ancient past, the White Martians visited the planet and performed genetic experiments on terrestrial animals and primitive humans. These experiments led to the White Martians to discover the metagene in human beings that would grant humans metahuman powers. Due to their experiments, they actually altered the destiny of the human race. Whereas before evolution would have eventually made mankind into a race of superhumans similar to the Daxamites and Kryptonians, or the Martians themselves, now only a select few humans would be able to develop metahuman powers. This was another reason for the war between the White and Green Martians, who were outraged by such biological vandalism.
Furthermore, the White Martians also created a metavirus, a metagene that could be passed from host to host via touch. This metavirus was responsible for the empowerment of the very first Son of Vulcan. The Sons of Vulcan passed the metavirus down in an unbroken line from that time onwards, sworn to hunt and kill “the pale ones” (the White Martians
