is a fictional character in the comic books published by DC Comics. The character first appeared in the Green Lantern spin-off Omega Men #3 (June 1983), and was created by Roger Slifer and Keith Giffen. In that setting Lobo, a Velorpian whose entire race had been exterminated by Psions, works as an interstellar mercenary and bounty hunter. Although introduced as a hardened, rarely-used noir villain in the 1980s, he languished in limbo until his revival as an anti-hero biker in the early 1990's. The character enjoyed a short run as one of DC’s most popular characters throughout the 1990s. After a well-received appearance in Justice League International, Lobo became a regular character in L.E.G.I.O.N. and its successor series R.E.B.E.L.S. In 1990, he appeared in his own miniseries, , plotted by Giffen, written by Alan Grant and with art by Simon Bisley, in which his origin story was retconned: he became the last Czarnian after violently killing every other member of the species. This version of Lobo was intended to be an over-the-top parody of Marvel Comics superhero Wolverine (in issue #41 of Deadpool, another Marvel series, Lobo himself was parodied in the likeness of Dirty Wolff, a large blue skinned man who drove a demonic motorcycle). A sick, demented alien Snake Plissken--fraggin' terrific.
