COMICS: What The...?! DC Unveils A Drastic New Look For LOBO

Think you know Lobo? Think again! It turns out that the most well-known version of Lobo - who retained his classic look in "The New 52" relaunch - is no longer Lobo. He is in fact an imposter, and the real deal is this slimmed down version who bares very little resemblance to the original.

By Josh Wilding - 8/23/2013




"Back when we introduced this “What’s New In The New 52” column, I told you that the most important word in The New 52 is “New.” We’re always striving to keep things exciting, different and surprising. Which is why JUSTICE LEAGUE #23.2: LOBO (from the creative team of Marguerite Bennett, Ben Oliver, Cliff Richards and Daniel Brown) contains a major surprise – one we’ve had planned for a while. The Lobo you’ve seen so far in the New 52 is not who you think he is. In this one-shot, you’ll be introduced to the real Lobo. A ruthless killer, Lobo is on a quest to kill the man who has taken his name.

This Lobo is equal parts strong, vicious, and driven. There’s a darker and more logical idea about what a force of nature like him is capable of. After all, this is someone who can infiltrate high society, fly a space ship, and adhere to a very specific moral code that’s not your typical anti-hero one. Oh, and, this one-shot takes place very far away from Earth. And when I say very far away, I mean it takes place literally on the other side of the galaxy."


That's what DC Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras had to say about the redesigned Lobo, but what do you guys think? Whether this means that the classic version is set to be taken out for good in preference of this redesign is unclear, but this may just be THE most controversial change in "The New 52" since Superman lost his red underwear! Be sure to sound off below!

I... Uh....
Hellsing - 8/23/2013, 11:06 AM
Is he Kid Lobo, I guess the mission statement for the new 52 was younger, sleeker, smooth and sexy. Oh well besides Wonder Woman(DC's best book) and Snyders run on swamp thing. Its been pretty [frick]ing mediocre. Oh and Snyders Batman run has been pretty good. Oh well I'll go read Daredevil #30
ScarletSpeedster0 - 8/23/2013, 11:09 AM
Gonna call it right now, redesign so they can cast Lobo in a movie and not need someone the same size as Dwayne Johnson

BabyGroot - 8/23/2013, 11:10 AM
@ScarletSpeedster0 exactly
Asterisk - 8/23/2013, 11:11 AM
I kinda like it.
SwagInScience - 8/23/2013, 11:12 AM
Apparently the thing in NEW 52 is "Sleek and slender". Look at Reverse Flash, Earth 2 Flash, Relic, etc.
InfiniteMonkey - 8/23/2013, 11:13 AM
I think its an obvious ploy to ready it for a big screen debut. LOL
thalidomide - 8/23/2013, 11:13 AM
A skinny Lobo? What the actual [frick]??!?
PC04 - 8/23/2013, 11:14 AM
Not that I'm a LOBO know it all or a huge fan but his classic look is much cooler and fun.
sintzu - 8/23/2013, 11:14 AM
looks good to me
Moakynubs - 8/23/2013, 11:14 AM
At least he looks a little bit more alien and not just like a gray guy with a mullet... That always bugs me.
TheDarkLord - 8/23/2013, 11:14 AM
Noooooo!
Demongod20 - 8/23/2013, 11:15 AM
Ocelot - 8/23/2013, 11:15 AM
What in the blue blazing [frick] is that?... looks like Loki if he was a Dark Elf with tech.
KNIGHT3000 - 8/23/2013, 11:16 AM
So.... he's like younger, so we get to see the process of becoming what we know
pistolero82 - 8/23/2013, 11:16 AM
Wow.
Tainted87 - 8/23/2013, 11:16 AM
I'm seeing Luke Evans...
Or Tom Hardy with Luke Evans' hair...
jimoakley666 - 8/23/2013, 11:18 AM
I never liked the character, but even I can see that this is utter bullshit.
KryptoniteSmoker - 8/23/2013, 11:18 AM
Feetals gizz! the main man would stomp that sad little wannabe and still have time for a smoke and a drink!
James842 - 8/23/2013, 11:18 AM
When did Lobo become a Meth addict?
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 8/23/2013, 11:18 AM
Whoa................ O_O'

KillerTomato - 8/23/2013, 11:20 AM
No, just no. No part of this says Lobo... the main man this is not. Terrible redesign.
patriautism - 8/23/2013, 11:22 AM
I thought they changed him to a girl at first.... Not Good.
tvor03 - 8/23/2013, 11:23 AM
Lobo is the Poochie of comic books.
MistaNiceDude - 8/23/2013, 11:25 AM
