Would love for this to be right and not just a theory.
What if Swanwick was MM impersonating him some of the time, and was his own character? I think then we could have Swanwick be paranoid about his own sanity or some other being and lead the hunt for other powered beings that can steal identities. Ooh, and that could bring out more superheroes, including a certain Amazon

Um so basically because he's a black character, he can be an alien shapeshifter because Superman never tattled on him?
I really don't know how to respond because you can apply your logic to any other character in the film and it still works. Perry seemed pretty in control.
I'd rather Martian Manhunter not be tied down to supes.

Interesting. I'm surprised most in here like the idea of Lennix's Swanwick being actually J'onn/MM. Surprised most in here are not hating on the idea and thinking it's too simple minded for they're particular tastes.

I like the idea of Swanwick being MM actually. Then he can explain his origin/backstory to Superman and Batman in a flashback.

Maybe the Captain "he's kinda hot" chick has some Oreos and Swanwick grabs some off her. Perhaps that'll tell us something?! That being said I'd love it if Harry Lennix does end up being MM!

if he was MM why the #$@! didn't he help out is my question.

was the potential genocide of another race he lived among not worth him breaking his cover?

I think the idea of General Swanwick being Martian Manhunter is a great one.

Asides from the reasons FOR him being MM already posted, I noted the following:

- When Superman approaches the two-way glass, everyone else steps back from the window in fear. Swanwick doesn't flinch at all. But of course, that could just be him being fearless, which is perhaps why he's made it high up in the chain in the Army.

- When Swanwick talks to Superman at the end of the film (after Supes destroys the satellite/drone), his army uniform has 2 fabric sections in the front. These cross his chest in what looks like the top half of an 'X'. Unfortunately the camera doesn't pan low enough to show if they're the same on the bottom. I'm reaching here, but could be a small wink from Snyder.

Reason AGAINST him being MM ............

- MM traditionally has a fear of fire. After Supes destroys the satellite/drone, it's in flames yet Swanwick approach this and stands close to it without any noticeable effect.

If he is MM that would almost ruin Man of Steel for me. Leave him as General Swanwick.

The only problem with him being MM is why didnt he help Superman against Zod and co during the movie, especially when the world was at stake. I love MM and cant wait to see him in the movies but after more thought him being Swanwick doesnt really make sense.

Huh, I actually really like this idea.

And about him not helping, I like what was said earlier about J'onn being very cynical and angry about his entire race being obliterated that he felt it necessary to maintain his disguise, for the greater good. Acting as a sort of herald for the coming of Darkseid. But through Superman's, and maybe even Batman's, actions and heroism, he decides to come out of hiding and lend a hand.

And actually, a great way to show off Batman's deductive powers and intelligence, would be for him to out Swanwick to Superman. Shocking Swanwick so much that he loses his composure and reverts back to his martian form.

Hell, that'd be a great lead in for Superman to ask J'onn why he didn't help him in his fight with Zod, and then for J'onn to reveal that his race was destroyed by Darkseid and that he needed to stay hidden.

God that'd be cool.

I can't help but think that Superman would have scanned Swanwick and figured out that he's not human...

Remember, Clark grew up in Kansas. He's the trusting type.

And I'd imagine that J'onn as Swanwick has been living on Earth for a while and is pretty capable in the disguise department.

IF Swanwick is J'onn I imagine that years ago the REAL Swanwick died and that J'onn found his dead body and took over. I don't know how things work in the brass of the military because I was never brass but I'd imagine that a 4 star, or however many stars Swanwick is, general wouldn't have to do PT tests and all the regular check ups us regular folks had to do...he could by-pass all that stuff and never be figured out by the military

Also, I'm not sure how far his shapeshifting abilities go, but he might also be able to perfectly replicate the human body to maintain his cover.

I'm pretty sure his blood would still be alien...I'm not 100% so don't hold me to that. It really depends on how they want to portray him....if they change anything up

Not sure about this idea. I mean, if Swanwick was really J'onn, then why the hell wouldn't he go out there and help Superman fight the Kryptonians and stop the world engine? He could have easily pulled this off without blowing his cover, since he's a shapeshifter.

He might be Martian Manhunter, but I'm pretty sure Perry White is secretly Aquaman. Fishburne... Fish born... it's pretty obvious.

And JGL is The Riddler.
