Lobo first appeared in Omega Men #3 (June 1983) published by DC Comics written by Roger Sillfer and drawn by Keith Giffen. He is an alien born on planet Czarnia. Lobo is a mercenary and bounty hunter. He has superhuman strength and durability. He is also immortal. Lobo also goes by The Main Man and The Last Czarnian. He was created in early 1980’s but DC writers don’t have much use of him so he faded out. However, in the early 1990’s he was bought back and became more popular than ever.
I will remember back in the early 1990’s, I went crazy with Lobo just like Ghost Rider, Wolverine and Punisher, I bought every issue Lobo appeared in.
There were also words from DC in February 2018, they wanted Michael Bay to direct a live-action movie with a budget of less than $200 million. We will see Lobo in the small screen before big screen.
