It is my fervent hope that this guy will turn out to be a second slo-bo variant, who got stuck under a rock or something and didn't make it to the big fight on Apokolips.

The thing you have to remember about Lobo, aside from the comedy point other people have made, above, is that he was never dumb.  He's outrageous, sure, and seems impulsive, but is demonstratively capable of long-term planning that requires unusual behavior (see the sequence in which he forswears violence and becomes the 'pope' of a religion just to get at that religion's deity)

Plus, the new version would look silly no-selling a punch from Darkseid or Supes.

I gave up and just started pirating most DC comics. I still feel like I've been ripped off.

I like how people love to make comments like this.  The moment someone else bastardizes their own favorite stuff however, they'll be all 'FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU~!" about it.  What goes around comes around, etc.

You'll get over it.

This from someone that likely went into a nerdrage when his favorite 80s/90s movie got remade...

And I got over it.


Yeah, suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure ya did.

Seeing as how I didn't exist for most of the 80s and spent most of the 90s being told everything I liked sucked compared to the 70s, yeah, I think I did.

/sheesh, I had thought the "lizard part of the brain" thing would have been a sign to not to take the post so seriously.

So, kind of like mid to late eighties glam rock Lobo?

They are bad enough, that I stopped pirating them.  They aren't worth reading for free.  And I'm a life long comic book nerd.

I can still do Batman, as much as they're still screwing around. It's like they can't figure out which continuity they want to use so they decide to mix and match on a whim or just redo recent stories with different characters.

What I would love to see is the Old52 Lobo become so incensed about this new version that he crosses over into the New52 universe and kills him. Lobo frequently breaks the fourth wall, why not have the old version not take this reboot lying down? It would be the ballsiest thing DC has done in years.

I'd love to have the old Lobo around, constantly complaining about all the New52 changes and skewing the reboot trope entirely.

Give them time.

That would be a very useful tool to clean up this new 52 mess in the future.

HindiDiscoMonster: So, they changed Lobo from a Conanized Rob Zombie into an Emo goth teenager... ummm... ok?


Yes, they made Lobo more like his fans.

One of my all time fav comics was one of the Lobo giant sizers

Boooooooooo-Klomaha
