The White Martians and the Green Martians were originally part of the same race, known as "The Burning". This race used fire to reproduce asexually and were belligerent to all. 20,000 years ago, The Guardians of the Universe, fearing the ruthlessly and violently powerful Martians, genetically split the Martian race into two distinct species, white and green, preventing the asexual reproduction. They also gave these two new races an instinctive fear of fire to prevent either group from ever accessing their full potential. While the Green Martians were peaceful philosophers, the White Martians were savage warriors. A lengthy civil war between the two races ended when the few surviving White Martians were rounded up and exiled to the extra-dimensional "Still Zone". They watched and waited, biding an eternity in anticipation of escaping.
