The Main Man, the Last Czarnian Lobo, has been announced at SDCC’s Krypton panel as being the main villain of the second season of Krypton.
Lobo first appears in Omega Men #3
Krypton held its San Diego Comic-Con panel this afternoon and made a huge announcement for the series’ upcoming second season. DC Comics villain Lobo will be next season’s big bad.
Due out in 2019, Krypton’s second season will dig into the consquences of the first season in which Zod made a deal with Brainiac to save Krypton, thus changing the future and Superman’s story as we know it. Now, it sounds like those consequenves will include the iconic villain.
In comics, Lobo is from the peaceful planet of Czarnia, but he is far different from those in the utopian world. The vicious, violent Lobo single-handedly slaughtered his entire world, making him the last of his race and a fearsome mercenary roaming the universe carrying out mayhem and murder.
News of Lobo joining Krypton may come as a surprise to fans since Warner Bros. is also said to be developing a feature film for the fan-favorite character. Earlier this year, screenwriter Jason Fuchs opened up about his work in the DC Films universe and spoke about writing the script for a Lobo film.
