Martan the Marvel Man-William Kent-1940

Note that he's THE Marvel Man as opposed to Marvelman (or Miracleman for that matter). Martan the Marvel Man was a Buck Rogers type fella who appears here in part of a serialized story.

Poor New Jersey! Every time that the d_mn'd Martians attack, they go straight for Jersey!

I was so pleased with Martan's “it is I”, but then he said “powers against whom”. We cannot trust our fate to this man!

Anyway, I'll note that this story is an example of one on the pacificist / military-isolationist side of debate in the run-up to the US declarations of war.
