Mars Attacks! led by Marvin the Martian

Look, if your goal  is to annihilate humankind, you might as well  be enthusiastic in your work, and that's why I imagine an issue featuring these characters would be a lot of fun.  The destruction of Earth is a morbid plan, but if presented through the point of view of the would be conquerors, I have to admit it would probably be an engaging read.

This has lots of potential for gratuitous, insanely dark comedy. Yes, it would be a fantastic read, and I'd certainly buy this issue.

(Artistically, I don't think the effect of Marvin standing on the other Martian's head even comes close to working, though the matching pointing gesture makes a good synchronicity for the moment you have in mind.)

I could see this being repelled by John Carter and the Martian Manhunter (a pairing that has happened here, but yearns to be revisited).

Moral of the story, Zoinks: it ain't funny when you have to explain it.

@Anonymous, despite feeling silly for not getting it the first time around, that's still pretty damn funny!
