Injustice DLC: First In-Game Lobo Screenshot

The Main Man Strikes a Pose in First DLC Screenshot!

The last son of Czarnia and all around "main man" is coming to Injustice: Gods Among Us as the first of four downloadable characters! With the game on shelves, the official Injustice Facebook is still cooking, providing the first screenshot.


Lobo has proved a popular request amongst fans, frequently sought during NetherRealm Studios' first stint in superhero fighters with 2008's Mortal Kombat versus DC Universe At the time of this article, Lobo has polled second with MKOmmunity users, earning 13.9% of votes [behind surprise omission: Martian Manhunter].

Having first appeared in an innocuous role as villain to Omega Men #3; the character is better remembered for the over-the-top revamp later featured in titles like; Green Lantern, L.E.G.I.O.N., Justice League & his own mini-series and specials.

Finding widespread counter-cultural appeal throughout the nineties -- the ultra-violent, biker version of the character was a parody of the grim 'n' gritty anti-heroes popular at the time. Ratcheting the mayhem and murder to absurd lengths; Lobo was reconceived as a commentary and criticism of the so-called "mature" adventures of popular properties like Wolverine and The Punisher. His adventures of the time included mercenary contracts that famously targetted the likes of Santa Claus [see; The Paramilitary Christmas Special], resulting in crossovers with many like-minded irreverent properties [ie; Judge Dredd].

This crossover appeal coincided with the proliferation of video game titles like Mortal Kombat. Like the Hong Kong inspired battles of MK; the tongue-in-cheek heavy metal carnage associated with Lobo drew the interests of a decidedly less ironic audience. Perhaps inevitably, Lobo became the very thing he was designed to mock.

In a Kaufman-esque twist; Lobo will kick off the Injustice DLC Season Pass! Fans can look forward to sinking the hooked chains into opponents like Green Lantern & Superman sometime in the near future!

Injustice: Gods Among Us is currently available through all major retailers, for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 & Nintendo Wii U! Join the bastiches of The MKOmmunity and discuss all things Lobo on the DC Universe Injustice forum!
