The MAIN MAN!  Don't forget it, fan boy. Some of Biz's greatest work...

Lobo is an alien humanoid being from the planet Czarnia. Lobo is 6'4", 210 pounds, with red eyes and dark grey hair. Lobo is the last surviving member of his race, because he killed almost every other Czarnian on a whim one day.

Czarnia was a planet of peace and tranquility until Lobo was born. No one knows why he was the way he was, it just happened that way. Upon his birth, he bit off four of the midwife's fingers. Lobo ripped out his elementary principal's throat when he was five during a temper tantrum. Lobo then got a radio receiver implanted into his brain, which received Cosmic Rock Zombie Radio, a station where Lobo threatened the DJ Wolfman Wilf to play "I Killed My Folks (No Accident)" by Oedipus Wrecks 365 days a year, 24 hours a day under penalty of mangling.

After leaving Czarnia, Lobo worked as a bounty hunter/assassin for a while. On a personal mission to eviscerate Garryn Bek of L.E.G.I.O.N., who had accidentally run over one of his pet space dolphins, Lobo met Vril Dox. While the two initally got along, both individuals' natures took over, and the two fought to determine if Lobo would stay or not. During this fight, Cosmic Rock Zombie Radio went off-the-air, and Lobo, without his usual musical motivation, lost the fight to Vril Dox and had to join L.E.G.I.O.N. When L.E.G.I.O.N. was taken over by Dox's son Lyrl, Lobo was forced to join Dox's new group, the R.E.B.E.L.S. Eventually, Dox got upset at Lobo and kicked him out of R.E.B.E.L.S. Lobo has since gone back to bounty hunting.

Lobo is extremely strong and resilient to damage, on par with Superman. Lobo also heals extremely quickly in addition to his durability. Lobo possesses a tracking sense that locks onto a person's aura, and he can track them across the universe if necessary. Lobo apparently does need to breathe, as he has been subdued by gas in the past, yet he is able to survive in the vacuum of space unaided. Lobo formerly had the ability to make clones of himself by spilling a drop of blood. In L.E.G.I.O.N. '89 #7, Vril Dox, leader of L.E.G.I.O.N. at that time, poisoned Lobo to remove this ability. However, Lobo had a clone escape, who may have replaced the original Lobo, that still possesses or possessed the ability to replicate.

He's very tough to kill, but he or his clones have been killed on a few occasions:

  • Clones: Large explosions in the airborne ships they were piloting. (L.E.G.I.O.N. '89 #7)
  • Alternate future Lobo: Disintegrated by beams from Vril Dox/Lady Quark amalgam. (L.E.G.I.O.N. '91 Annual 2)
  • Lobo: Blown in half by large gun. (Lobo's Back #1)
  • Reincarnated-as-a-woman Lobo: Blown apart by WWII-era artillery. (Lobo's Back #3)
  • Reincarnated-as-a-squirrel Lobo: Squashed when top half of Lobo's original body fell on him. (Lobo's Back #3)
  • Clones: Killed by large salvos of missiles fired by Vril Dox from a L.E.G.I.O.N. ship. (Lobo, Vol. 2, #9)
  • Lobo or Clone: Killed by the other. (Lobo, Vol. 2, #9)
  • Lobo: Charged with 500,000 volts, inhaling poisonous gas, a spike in the brain, and at least 17 severe blows to the head by a hydraulic hammer. (Lobo/Deadman: T.B.A.T.B. #1)
  • Lobo: Pulled in half by two farm tractors. (Lobo, Vol. 2, #32)

Due to the ending of Lobo's Back #4, one can make the assumption that Lobo can never be permanently dead, because he is neither allowed in heaven or hell.
