Hope for humanity yet

Was ringing up a mother and her kid, who was probably like 8-10 years old. They had picked up a number of the DC Showcase reprints, so right off the bat some good choices. Then she picked up the Martian Manhunter volume and asked him, "Who's this? Do you even know who he is?". To which the kid replied, "That's J'onn J'onzz! He's like tougher than Superman, and he's neat!"
"Tougher than Superman?"
"Yeah, but he's weak to just fire!"

My cold black heart grew three sizes that day. God bless you little dude. God bless.

Need to show J'onn some respect, is all I'm sayin'
