"Meet DC’s Hunky New Lobo"
That’s not lobo that’s spawns sanfran based cousin
I’m not a lobo fan. But they decided they should neuter him?
Honestly, I’m a Lobo fan and I’d rather he just be used as the occasional Superman villain. He’s a parody of ’90s excess, full stop.
Oh, I’m familiar. I’m just not sure the writers at DC are.
A friend of mine calls this version “Twilight Lobo.”
Also, if this Lobo isn’t brutally murdered by the real thing during his one-shot, I’ll give you a shiny nickel.
You’re being way too optimistic. I can taste that nickel now. Mmm, coppery.
It’s pretty simple: The bastitch we all know and love was DLC on Injustice, and they’re making a movie about him. Rolling out a “new” character only to brutally murder him is pretty much the definition of a Lobo joke. Maybe he won’t be brutally murdered, but there’s definitely some fan trollin’ going on.
Maybe this is supposed to be the “girlfriend” Lobo takes in space prison? I could see Lobo being this man’s butt king.
i’d expect fan trolling from a company that had a clue what it was doing, but [en.wikipedia.org]
One can only dream.
This has to be a Marc Silvestri design. It looks like a character straight out of his new Cyber Force book.
As a great critic once said, “It stinks!”
Well, Rocafort has made most of his career under Silvestri.
Anyone else think this is DC pre-planning for the long rumored Lobo film? With this redesign they won’t have to go for a Vin Desiel or the like.
Wait, never mind. That would assume DC/WB is actually giving thought to their movie universe instead of reacting to Marvel’s.
I don’t read DC. Is Lobo just a Wolverine knock off?
Sooort of. Depending on the book he’s either a sincere attempt to create a Wolverine-esque “badass” character, or a parody of Wolverine-esque badass characters.
He’s essentially a parody of ’90s “anti-heroes” courtesy of Keith Giffen and Alan Grant. He was DC’s biggest character during the ’90s because the fandom was split between people who got the joke and people who didn’t.
What exactly is the point they’re missing then? Lobo HAS to be big and stocky? I don’t get everyone’s hatred for the New 52 because it’s different. I’m pretty sure being different is the fucking point.
Stocky isn’t required. Some semblance of personality would be nice though.
Lobo is ugly, crude and savage, inside and out. This redesign is kind of like giving Superman a douchey goatee, a “tribal” tattoo, and a leather vest. Yeah, it might be considered a valid new direction, but everyone with any investment in in the character as previously established is going to by unhappy with it.
Don’t give them any ideas Billybob.
How the hell did this guy get elected Sheriff?
Wow. I have no words for how hard I laughed at this.
Did this turn into a parody site? That can’t be real. Lobo should at least look like he can kick my ass. This jerkoff looks like he should be fighting a Belmont in a fancy jacket.
This one can still kick ass… the wrong way.
I guess this is the only way you can make a “serious” monthly title for Lobo, though I would point out that Marvel has been able to (mostly) keep Deadpool engaging as a title character. Also…look at all this crap this guy is carrying around. Swords, guns, probably some other gizmos. A true bastich needs not these things…
Honestly, he looks like he should be holding Nightwing’s hand while they both have a good cry.
He’s going to sparkle in sunlight, isn’t he? (Goddammit.)
Okay, I think I’m officially ready for the Anti-Monitor to show up and wipe this universe clean.
Why is Lobo still a thing?
Same reason Squirrel Girl is, only Squirrel Girl is funnier.
I’d like to see a planet of the symbiote kind of thing done with lobo where there’s a multitude of them
No, thank you. You can take this back DC, and your forced Superman/ Wonder Woman romance.
The big, hulking “Main Man” Lobo was also a redesign. This design looks more like his original appearance.
Some friends and I hoped that this was going to be in the vein of a parody of existing heroes who aren’t as ridiculously muscled as they were in the late 80s/early 90s that would get progressively more absurd, but Bob Harras’s comments indicate that he isn’t even on the fact that Lobo was supposed to be a joke.
At least when Drax was redesigned to be Riddick, it was timelier and still made him out to be a badass up to and including him punching Thanos through the chest.
BTW, Andrew Bryniarski (Who played the warpainted college football player in The Program and the warpainted Miami Shark in Any Given Sunday and Leatherface in the first Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake with Jessica Biel along with other roles as a large badass) played Lobo in a student film. That is awesome.
Yessss…. the nerdrage and butthurt are strong with this thread!
Those weapons he has look boss. Lobo sucked so I’m fine with this update.
I don’t know… if they were going to release a new Lobo, why would they have him as DLC in Injustice still lookin’ like himself? I’m calling a “bait-and-switch”.
Ziggy Stardust, what happened to you?
They’re tryn to make the main man into garbage! When I get my hangffhjfdsfjkljgddFRAG!
Wait til you see what they did for the reboot of Wally West.
i feel like lobo should look like danny trejo, and i don’t care if thats wrong.
He looks like Namor in a metal gear game
