The United States government contacted the Martian Manhunter, and asked him to investigate the nefarious doings of "a super-secret international criminal empire" referring to itself as "V.U.L.T.U.R.E.," (The identity of said organization's mastermind known as "Mr. V" and "Faceless" was of particular interest to Washington. While undertaking this little chore on behalf of the Feds, J'onn inadvertently causes the death of one of Faceless' top lieutenants. Operating under a sense of guilt, J'onn utilized his shape-shifting abilities to assume the exact likeness of the deceased Lt., and infiltrate V.U.L.T.U.R.E. from within.
