(A JUDICIAL ENFORCMENT & PURSUIT OFFICER MK-OMEGA UNIT, the nanobot android better known as the ‘MARTIAN MANHUNTER’ was sent to EARTH by a totalitarian regime on MARS to hunt down and eliminate remnants of rebels who have sought refuge on the planet.)
Panel 1: High atop an under construction skyscraper, where MARTIAN MANHUNTER has located the leader of the Martian Rebel Refugees, JONN ZONJ’JU.
ZONJ’JU: Do what you will. I’ll die before I’ll betray the others.
Panel 2: MARTIAN MANHUNTER’s arm is extended, pointed at ZONJ’JU. The hand at the end shifts in an angular, square-like pattern as to ‘create’ a space gun in his hand.
MARTIAN MANHUNTER: JONN ZONJ’JU…
Panel 3: The gun in MANHUNTER’s hand has rotated around as he offers the weapon to ZONJ’JU.
MARTIAN MANHUNTER: …I HEREBY PLACE MY FATE IN YOUR HANDS.
Panel 4: ZONJ’JU is left speechless as he looks at MANHUNTER.
Panel 5: MANHUNTER continues to look at ZONJ’JU as he holds the weapon out, free for ZONJ’JU to take at any time.
MANHUNTER (1): MY TIME ON THIS WORLD HAS BROUGHT NEW REALIZATION TO MY OWN EXISTANCE.
MANHUNTER (2): DESPITE MY VAST VISUAL CAPABILITIES, I HAVE BEEN BLIND TO MY OWN REALITY.
MANHUNTER (3): DESPITE MY UNPARALLELED CAPACITY FOR CALCULATIONS, I HAVE NEVER TRULY THOUGHT FOR MYSELF.
MANHUNTER (4): FOR THE FIRST TIME I NOW SEE AND CALCULATE MY OWN ERRORS.
Panel 6: ZONJ’JU has the gun in his hand, though it is unclear what is going through his mind.
MANHUNTER (1): I HEREBY LEAVE IT IN YOUR HANDS.
MANHUNTER (2): I ASK THAT YOU GRANT WHAT THESE EARTHBORN REFER TO AS ‘FORGIVENESS’, THAT I MAY ATTEMPT TO ATONE FOR MY CRIMES AGAINST LIFE.
MANHUNTER (3): BUT I TRUST THAT IN YOUR OWN CAPACITY FOR REASONING YOU WILL ARRIVE AT THE CORRECT CONCLUSION.
