I was just re-reading my DCU Oneshot (I guess that is what it was called) where it presents the begining stories for Capt. Marvel, the new Atom, Freedom Fighters, Martian Manhunter, etc. and I found an interesting change in MM's history.

According to "The Burning" storyline in JLA and answer.com his weakness to fire was due to the fact that "20,000 years before, an extremely dangerous race of beings called "the Burning", caused large fires to help themselves to reproduce asexually. In order to prevent the Burning from destroying much of the universe, the Guardians of the Universe split the species into the Green Martians and the White Martians, changed their reproductive behavior, and instilled in them a fear of fire."

However in this one-shot and in the oracle files it was found that the weakness was "a psychologically based vulnerability to the presence of fire, due to his buried traumatic memories of the burning of his wife's corpse."

So which is it? Guardians or Family? Any help would be appreciated.
