I think they definitely could have done more with the character

It felt like the final confrontation with him and Tony and Rhodey was over too quickly. Like they could have fit more in if they'd made the fight with the robot suits shorter or the film longer

I'm curious to see how they're going to handle the character

And if the rings are still going to have their alien origin. I hope so they need to have been made by bad tempered space dragons i feel

Drive was such a pleasant surprise. It was a lot different and better than I thought it would be. It's the movie that finally got me on the Gosling bandwagon. Also, Albert Brooks, Carey Mulligan, Ron Pearlman, and Bryan Cranston were wonderful. What a great movie.

What if laser vision and flight were not native powers to Martians, but J'onn gained those abilities by copying Kryptonian physiology?

why then would he not incorporate the abilities granted by other humanoid physiologies he's encountered?

Sort of, yeah. But let's pretend he is actually copying Superman's organs, i.e., the Kryptonian "air bladder," as opposed to say, Ice's powers or a green lantern ring. How many heroes' powers are based off of their actual physiology, as opposed to some magical force, like the Speed Force, Miraclo, or Nth Metal?

If he copied Ivy's biology he could probably use her pheremones and poison kiss

That's what I'm wondering. In the DCU, are metahumans basically mutants like the X-Men? Their powers come from genetic variations? I don't think that's true for most. But then again, I couldn't tell you Black Lightning or Metamorpho's origins if you put a gun to my head.
But Aquaman for instance, can breathe underwater and sustain great depths and pressures due to differences in his physiology compared to normal humans. And I bet J'onn can copy these abilities no problem. (M'gann has been shown swimming near Atlantis frequently in Young Justice).

Dunno where this thought is going honestly. I guess I'm just trying to wrap my head around the full extent of J'onn's power set.

Well he can change in shape AND size, something I think Mystique can't do. I also am uncertain on the meta-human aspect of DC, i mean Virgil Hawkins had laten ability but it was activated by the "big bang" so can J'onn use Virgil's powers if he shifts into Virgil? I don't think J'onn has those type of abilities.

I'll be getting that at wizardworld by the way.

That's what I'm saying. Virgil's bio-chemistry (or whatever) was altered by the Big Bang, so it's doubtful that J'onn could emulate that, since it's on such a cellular level and encompasses Virgil's whole body (same with Ice, Metamorpho, Human Bomb, etc.) Superman's flight ability, however, stems from some dormant organ found in Kryptonians, but not humans or martians, and could be copied more easily. Same thing with his kryptonian eyeballs. That's what my hypothosis is: if J'onn gained flight and martian vision from copying Superman's origins.

Of course, this theory all goes to **** when you look at examples of other martians, like the white ones in Morrison's JLA.

Ivy reminds me of John Carpenter's The Thing.
