The character makes his first appearance in Detective Comics #225, cover dated November 1955. This origin story sets up a number of important character points, many of which have carried onto the modern age with little or no change. In this first story, the character is pulled to earth by an experimental teleportation beam (originally presented as an attempted communication device) constructed by Dr. Erdel, the shock of the encounter kills Dr. Erdel and leaves J'onn with no method of returning home. The character decided to fight crime while waiting for Martian technology to advance to a stage that will enable his rescue. To that end, he adopts the identity of John Jones, a detective in the fictional Apex City (later retconned as Chicago).
During this period, the character and his back story differ in some minor and some significant ways from modern treatments. Firstly, as with his counterpart, the Silver age Superman, his power range is poorly defined, and his powers expand over time as the plot demands. The addition of precognitive abilities (Detective Comics #226) are quickly followed by telepathy and flight ], "Atomic vision", super-hearing and many other powers. In addition, his customary weakness to fire is only manifested when he is in his native Martian form.
A more significant difference, is that at this time, there is no suggestion that Mars is a dead planet or that the character is the last of his kind. Many of the tales of the time feature either Martian technology or the appearance of other Martian characters, Detective Comics #236 (October 1956), for example, features the character making contact with the planet Mars and his parents.
J'onn eventually reveals his existence to the world, after which he operates openly as a superhero and becomes a charter member of the Justice League. He abandons the detective John Jones identity when Jones is ostensibly killed in action. J'onn spent the next several years involved in mystical adventures involving the Idol Head of Diabolu, an artifact which generates supernatural monsters. He later takes the persona of Marco Xavier in order to infiltrate the international crime cartel known as VULTURE.
His appearances with the League kept him in the public eye long after his own series were canceled. He is a founding member of the team, and served as a member during many of its various incarnations. From the late 1960s until the late 1970s, J'onn was absent from the JLA, having left Earth to find and become leader of New Mars. This time period is later retconned during the Crisis on Infinite Earths, and his period of absence is never again referenced.

She launched herself into the air from the rubble of the building. She slammed into him head on and proceeded to pummel her fists into his face.

*Relying on his Martial Arts training,Furious uses a Slight power build up and reinforces his Protective shield and he does a reverse head butt and Hits the Martian in his forehead with the back of his head. Knocking the Martian off of Him and stunning him! He then forms a Hard light construct around his leg and then swings his leg around in a semicircular motion, striking with the back of his foot! Striking the martian in the side of his head connecting with his temple, stunning him even more! Then He uses a Muay Thai Move and strikes Him in the shin and then the Side of his Body with Accurate precision! Then Furious Falls back and Shoots two Pin Point small lasers to his forehead cutting right through his Brain!""I told You J'onn I am done with these Games, It's no more Mr. Nice Guy!"

Feeling herself hurtling towards the ground she had just enough time to create a cushion so that the impact was lessened and a force field so that the blast radius was contained. She staggered to her feet watching as civilians ran from the violet enclosed space. She created a giant hand to grab the martian and slam him back into the ground repeatedly.

*Seeing the Missile fired,Furious then encases every one in the Whole city block under a Shield! He then splits another part of his Ring energy to form a Trampoline for the missile to hit! It bounces off and ricochet's backs towards the Martian! Furious then sends orders through his Power ring and then transmits an emergency Order for the Police, Fire Department and Safety officials transmitters and Scanners and radio's to get all Civilians to evacuate the immediate Area!*

The clone construct shatters into dust as the bolt of slams through its heart, the dust is disorienting to all who breathe it in. From behind the lantern a giant violet hand knocks him from the air. "Its not that easy to get rid of me darling."
