Mr. Weisman, in reading some of your answers here, I've gathered that, on Earth-16, Martians call their planet "M'arzz." However, I've long since understood it to be that the Martians call it "Ma'aleca'andra," in an obvious homage to the classic sci-fi novel Out of the Silent Planet by Clive Staples Lewis, were they called it Malacandra (http://www.martianmanhunter.wikia.com/wiki/Ma'aleca'andra). Did you go your own way deliberately, or were you unaware that this had been established (I'll admit that I don't know when).

Greg responds...

I was unaware. Maybe M'arzz is short for Ma'aleca'andra, or it's an alternate name, or one is more current: like Earth = Gaea = Terra.

(All things are true. Few things are accurate.)
