-- Jemm, Son of Saturn src

H'ronmeerca'andra

The three races of Ma'aleca'andra (Mars) are directly responsible for the H'ronmeerca'andran colonies on the moons of Saturn. Saturnians are descended from an underclass of worker clones created by ancient Martian explorers. The Green Martians cloned the original Red Saturnians from themselves, and the White Martians cloned the original White Saturnians. The Green Martians treated their clones as equals, while the White Martians treated theirs as slaves. The fate of the Yellow Martians is unknown.

The continued enslavement of the White Saturnians started a civil war between the two Martian races. At the war's conclusion the White Martians were exiled to the "Still Zone", only to escape years later and reappear disguised as the Hyperclan. After the civil war all Saturnians were granted their freedom, but continued to war among themselves for millennia.

Jemm, son of King Jaxx was forced to flee the palace after a White Martian coup. His mother Jarlla was able to hide him in a cave, where Jemm was trained by his White Saturnian teacher Rahani in the use of his powers.[1]

Earth

After both his mother and teacher were killed by the White Martians, Jemm stole a ship and escaped to Earth, in search of his lover Syraa who had fled there earlier. He arrives in Harlem, New York and is befriended by an orphan named Luther Mannkin. After a series of adventures with and without Luther, Jemm eventually found Syrra. They all then traveled to New Bhok, a Red Saturnian colony. Because he refused to take sides in a civil war on New Bhok, Jemm was disavowed and cast out by both factions. Dispirited, Jemm and Luther returned to Earth.

There Jemm learned that a criminal named Claudius Tull planned to use Saturnians as living energy sources. He had allied himself with a female White Saturnian named Synn. When Tull's true goal was exposed, Synn surrendered her forces to the Red Saturnian military. When last seen, had set out in search of Syrra, who had mysteriously disappeared yet again.[1]

Injustice Gang

Jemm resurfaces years later as a member of the Injustice Gang. He has apparently been brainwashed by Lex Luthor, through the use of a Philosopher's Stone, and used as a psychic weapon against the Justice League. He was able to impersonate J'onn J'onzz (Martian Manhunter) telepathically. Plastic Man, disguised as the Joker, plays several pranks designed to awaken him, but fails. J'onzz was able to sense and connect with Jemm's mind. J'onn powers freed Jemm, but left him comatose.

J'onn took Jemm to Z'onn Z'orr, his hidden Antarctic retreat in order to heal his mind. Jemm spent the next several months recovering his mental and physical health. He was later discovered, detained and abused by J'onn's evil brother Malefic who convinced the JLA that J'onn had gone insane, and was torturing Jemm.[1]

While Jemm recovered at the JLA Watchtower, a delegation of Saturnians arrived to reclaim the prince. J'onn discovered that Jemm was to take part in a brokered political wedding designed to unite warring factions of Red and White Saturnians.[2]

Rings of Saturn

During the trip to H'ronmeerca'andra, J'onn learns more about Jemm's future bride, a White Saturnian named Princess Cha'rissa. Cha'rissa becomes romantically attracted to J'onn, and he in turn admits his own attraction to her. The trio uncover a plot by Jemm's White Saturnian cousin Jogarr to assassinate him, and Cha'rissa vows to put aside feelings for J'onn and be true to her intended, Prince Jemm. J'onn leaves for Earth just prior to the wedding ceremony.[3]

Rann/Thanagar War

Though Jemm seems a pacifist, he joined forces with the Rannians in their war against Thanagar.
