Miss Martian, real name K'imm, is a superhero and the daughter of the Martian Manhunter.
When Mars was invaded by the Chitauri, K'imm and her mother, Xi'aa, were forced to put themselves in suspended animation when their home city's main power supply suffered from a serious radiation leak. Although Xi'aa was eventually able to send a subconscious psychic message to K'imm's father, J'onn - who had crash-landed on Earth and only recently been awoken when he was detected by Professor X -, Xi'aa was too badly injured by the radiation exposure to survive for long after she was awoken. With her mother dead, K'imm chose to return to Earth with her father, where she ended by joining the New Mutants - shortly before they were renamed X-Force - as the team's resident telepath, assuming a more humanoid appearance much like her father to better fit in with her new human friends.
In DC Comics, Miss Martian was a White Martian known as M'gann M'orzz. M'gann M'orzz was originally sent by rocket from Mars to the Vega system, to escape the civil war between the Green Martians and the White Martians. Initially, M'gann pretended to be a Green Martian, like the Martian Manhunter, and joined the Teen Titans.
Also, in the comics, Martian Manhunter's daughter's name is spelled K'hym.
