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.





"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!
