Syfy's Krypton was a hit for the channel both critically and commercially, so it was no surprise when they announced a second season of the Superman prequel. One of the less-excepted reveals though was that the sophomore series would star non-other than Lobo. A more deep cut DC Comics character from the wilds of the '80s, in the source material he's an intergalactic bounty hunter who lands somewhere between Deadpool and Wolverine. Today we got our first look at Krypton's vision who will be brought to life--complete with some white dreads and a skull codpiece--byÂ Emmett J. Scanlan.
The official Syfy press release establishes Krypton's Lobo as a villain, whereas in the comics he can run the gauntlet from killer to anti-hero. "A ruthless bounty hunter, who murdered his entire species, he possesses a genius level intellect when it comes to matters of warfare, making him a deadly adversary. Imbued with superhuman strength, and virtually immortal, Lobo will keep coming until the job is finished. His word is the only thing Lobo holds sacred; and although heâ€™ll never violate the letter of an agreement, he might disregard its spirit from time to time!"What do you think of this Rob Zombie inspired Lobo look? If you're from the UK are you just catching a lot of laughs from the fact that Lobo was in Hollyoaks? That's definitely canon now by the way!
