An unknown party hired Lobo to travel to Earth and capture or kill the Krolotean posing as Tseng. The contract specified that Lobo was to "put on a show for the locals", and he was happy to oblige, recklessly forcing his way through police and security forces. Despite interference from both Batgirl and Wonder Girl, Lobo successfully captured his quarry and returned to space.[1]

Powers and abilities


  • Hook gun
  • Space bike: a small starship that resembles a rocket powered motorcycle in design, Lobo uses it for transportation and securing prisoners for transport.[1]
  • Portable computer: he wears a belt that can call out his vehicle and translates his speech from Interlac into any language he requires.[1]


    Background in other media

    • In the comics, Lobo is an Czarnian bounty hunter who can't be killed by anyone except other Czarnians. But since he's the last of his race, that won't happen; he killed everyone on his planet for fun. His name translates from a Khundish dialect as "He who devours your entrails and thoroughly enjoys it".
    • This is Lobo's third animated incarnation, and fourth overall appearance. Previous versions include Superman: The Animated Series and Justice League from the DCAU, and Legion of Super Heroes, where he had a small, unnamed appearance.
