With the new plan of putting a new DCU in place, the works have already begun and promises are enormous, one of which includes introducing Lobo. Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman are definitely the OGs of DCU but the new DC Bible might introduce us to Lobo who could quickly rise as a fan favorite. A character first appearing in DC Comics in June 1983 with his anti-heroic nature to his ruthless and ever-changing style is said to be an interstellar mercenary and bounty hunter of Czarnia.
The Bounty Hunter From Czarnia
Lobo first appeared in the DC Comic Omega Man#3 in June 1983. He was introduced as a villain with exceptional strength and fortitude. Though he is a person who lives up to his promises and no more than he promised he is a self-centered and arrogant man who enjoys violence, intoxication, and killing.
Lobo is the last of his kind because having committed genocide in Czarnia for fun is often compared with Superman in terms of strength. It is said that Lobo will give Superman a run for his money on a good day. He was originally portrayed with trimmed purple-grey hair which later turned long, grey-black rocker hair.
The Czarnian bounty hunter is said to be the trickiest character in the DCU with his superhuman strength, his ability to clone himself, and also his powerful sense of smell to track down his bounty across galaxies.
Rumor Suggesting Jason Momoa to Play Lobo
As the new boss James Gunn is getting his house in order, Jason Momoa is rumored to be in line for playing a new character. Last month, an executive shared a photo as his post on the social media platform Mastodon and Jason Momoa was soon connected to the role after teasing a new “dream” project under Gunn and co-chairman Peter Safran. He later stated that a Lobo film “would be amazing” to the Comic Book Resources.
The water-dwelling superhero days for Momoa could be numbered but Gunn is reportedly looking into keeping Momoa in his plan for the new upcoming era of DCU.
Aquaman star commented “I’m just happy that Gunn is at the helm and Safran, who is just like my heart. So I’m in good hands and I think comic book fans around the world are going to be very excited.“, sources have also confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that Jason Momoa is sticking around for another role in the DCU be it Lobo or something else entirely.
No release date has been set for the Lobo project yet.
