Any Resemblance?

My good friend and colleague Andy Froilan likens me to the DC Comics character The Martian Manhunter a lot. I think the whole thing started because the Martian Manhunter is a character that I've always liked, but as time went on we've discovered a lot of creepy simularities between the two of us.
I submit to you the following

Exhibit A:
Image hosting by Photobucket
The resemblance is uncanny wouldn't you say? (sorry for the unfocused image)

Exhibit B:
The Martian Manhunter's real name is J'onn. Some call him John. My name happens to be John. Coincidence? I think not.

Exhibit C:
Martian Manhunter is obviously from Mars. He's an alien to Earth, and as a Christian I know what that feels like. I am in this world, but not of it. (1 Peter 2:10-12 NIV and Hebrews 11:13-14NIV)

Exhibit D:
Many members of the Justice League go to J'onn J'onzz for advice since they perceive him to be a sensative person understanding, and accepting of others. I've found that for some reason or another, people are very comfortable with me and ask for advice on deep matters or the heart and soul.

In conclusion; I'm obviously a geek looking desperately for something to do other than my massive loads of homework. I know that J'onn J'onzz would take responsibility for his various tasks, so I'm getting back to work.

I can see the resemblance and I have another. I think that perhaps you do have some superpowers because you singlehandedly saved my wedding. I think that that takes alot of superpowers. I personally planned everything down to the color of the silverwear but how was I to know that our expert caterers, "Papa John's Pizza" would totally drop the ball and decide not to make a single pizza. Anyways, I know nothing about martian man or whatever but if he can produce 50 pizzas out of thin air in a matter of minutes like you then that's awesome (Also, I'm a sucker for high cheekbones).
