jayhawk88: Lol, comic fans. Yeah, that "male power fantasy" thing is just rubbish, right? "WHAT??? You drew Lobo with only a slightly better than normal physique? NOOOOOOOO1!"


Your ignorance is showing.  The entire point of Lobo is that he's a complete parody of the "male power fantasy" thing.  He's the male power fantasy cranked to 11 and played for comedy.  Everything about him, from the huge muscles to the biker look to the drinking, womanizing, casual murder, etc. is designed with that end goal in mind.  Now they're talking about how they made these changes to make Lobo scary?  Lobo's not supposed to be scary, he's supposed to be funny.  Lobo is a giant dead baby comedy farce, and that's how his fans like him, thank you very much.

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.

If they're going to trash his original identity they should make him a Juggalo.  He could at least keep the same color scheme and still remain hilarious.

as far as im concerned, the only Lobo I'll choose to remember is Giffen's and Bisley's various takes on him.

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



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 think it's pretty funny, really. Lobo was supposed to be parody of the Punisher/Wolverine antihero types, and all the adolescent fanboys went crazy for him. Turning him into a svelte manscaped emo metrosexual seems like good entertainment to me.

I'm less annoyed with how he looks and more that he is going to be sane and driven. I like the old Lobo who would destroy half a galaxy and space time to get the guy who messed with his "fishies"

For those that don't know lobo he's the guy who beat the snot out of that wuss superman on two separate occasions.

And created a murderous gang of penguins.

Makes me glad I stopped buying comics decades ago, when Marvel used to put out the same issue of Spider Man in three different covers for "collector's value". Little did I know that such stunts was just the tip of the short bus.

That doesn't seem to line up well with the Wolverine parody I've gotten used to.
