Synopsis for "J'onn J'onzz Kid Brother"
John Jones repairs Dr. Erdel’s robot brain, intending to use it to return himself to Mars, though the brain can only operate once in both directions, to and from Mars. Jones trips and pushes the switch to retrieve something from Mars. It turns out to be his younger brother, T’omm, who has a surprised reunion with J’onn. After J’onn explains what he has been doing in the last few years, he prepares to send T’omm back. T’omm wants to stay on Earth with him, but J’onn refuses. However, he cannot activate the robot brain again, and nearby gunshots draw his attention. J’onzz proceeds to capture an escaped convict, but Captain Harding and other cops see the Martian Manhunter and then John Jones in the building in which the convict had holed up, and suspect that Jones and the Manhunter are one and the same. T’omm throws off their suspicions by appearing on a nearby roof. Later, T’omm confesses he took a key component out of the robot brain so that he could remain on Earth. When T’omm replaces it, J’onn sends his brother back to Mars, saying that, when he rewires the robot brain, he will be coming home, too.
