First appearance



Lobo killed all the other Czarnians with a plague. (He claimed it was a science project and gave himself an 'A'). Since then he has traveled the galaxies collecting bounties. Lobo has a strict code of honor when it comes to these agreements. Along the way he has met and battled a number of superheroes.

Lobo played a provincial role in the Citadel War. He was hired by the Citadel's human agent Harry Hokum to capture the Euphorian known as Kalista in a bid to learn the secret behind her home world's planetary shield. Along with fellow bounty hunters Bedlam and Berserk, he raided the mothership belonging to the Omega Men where upon he engaged in combat with Kalista.[1]

Soon after, Harry Hokum hired Lobo once again, this time to assassinate the Omega Men's interim leader Tigorr. Lobo never had the opportunity to complete the contract however.[2]

After the Citadel War ended, Lobo was then hired by Kalista's husband Primus to help them infiltrate a Citadel prison facility and free several of Primus' captured allies. During the prison break, Lobo killed the supreme commander of the surviving Citadel military forces.[3]

Lobo eventually turned his back on his violent ways and became an archbishop in the First Celestial Church of the Triple Fish-God. He became a protector of sorts to a massive colony of refugees from Sector 3500. He also gained possession of the Emerald Eye of Ekron.

He happened to arrive in an asteroid field just in time to kill Devilance, rescuing Animal Man, Adam Strange, and Starfire, who were stranded in space. Starfire negotiated a deal with him, in which he would help them out of their predicament if they helped him with his problems. After helping the heroes to defeat Lady Styx, he brings the Emerald Eye to the triple-headed fish god, who agrees to release Lobo from his vow of non-violence in exchange. When told that the Emerald Eye is the only thing that can kill the fish god, Lobo blasts him with it.

Powers and Abilities



It is said that Czarnians can only be truly killed by other Czarnians (This does not matter to Lobo either way, as he cannot die by any means.). Furthermore, Lobo has been banned from entering either Heaven and Hell. Lobo can survive unaided in the vacuum of space.

  • Superhuman Strength: Varies greatly from writer to writer. Lobo has shown strength sufficient enough to knock out Superman with his blows without too much apparent effort, but at times is barely able to pick up cars. At most times Lobo is shown to be on par with Superman in terms of strength. He has even shown enough strength to destroy entire planets. Hence more often than not, Lobo is able to effortlessly lift far in excess of 100 tons.
  • Superhuman Stamina: He possesses inexhaustible stamina and in most interpretations cannot tire.
  • Immortality: Lobo also is functionally immortal and cannot die no matter what happens. He is immune to the effects of aging and disease and he has been banned from entering either Heaven or Hell.
  • Invulnerability: Varies greatly from writer to writer. He has at times shrugged of blows from the likes of Superman with no damage, taken planet destroy attacks without so much a scratch, but at other occurrences has had his skin penetrated by bullets. He is, however, highly succeptible to gas attacks.
  • Self-Sustenance: He does not need, any food, water, air or sleep and he can survive in the vacuum of space without any harm.
  • Regeneration: If Lobo does somehow sustains injury, his accelerated healing factor enables him to regenerate damaged or destroyed tissue instantly, with little apparent pain. He will apparently heal from any injury. For instance, Lobo can regenerate out of a pool of his own blood, apparently recycling the cells instantly. The speed of regeneration has also varied throughout his appearances.
  • Bio-Fission (formerly).
  • Genius-Level Intellect: As unbelievable as it may seem, despite his violent and loutish nature, Lobo seems to have a genius-level intellect in matters of destruction and violence. He can create complex virulent agents and the necessary antidotes to them such as the one he let loose on Czarnia, resulting in the deaths of the entire population in the span of one week. He was also able to scavenge parts from a destroyed time hopper and attach them to his own bike, producing a working time machine.


  • Tracking: Tracking ability allows him to trace any prey across even the Universe.
  • Multilingualism: By his own account, Lobo can speak 17,897 different languages from across the galaxy.[4]

    Strength level

Class 100+; however it varies greatly from writer to writer, even still Lobo is able to easily lift in excess of 100 tons in most interpretations.


Possesses a fondness for space dolphins which sometimes affects his judgment. Additionally, Lobo's word is the only thing he finds sacred, and will keep his promises, even to his detriment. He is highly succeptible to gas attacks.





Hooked chain, various guns, frag grenades, blades and just about anything he can get his hands on.


  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985-86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.


  • Lobo's favorite color is "Sepulcher Black"[5], which he names his hair color after.
  • "Bob Bastiche" was actually the name of the first employer to hire Lobo for bounty hunting work. He claims to have adopted the man's name as a saying just because he liked the sound of it.[6]
  • Was hired to assassinate Santa Claus by the Easter Bunny, and succeeded.[7]
  • His name translates from a Khundish dialect as "He who devours your entrails and thoroughly enjoys it."
  • Illustrators have historically taken liberties with Lobo's hair color. In his earliest appearances, his hair was purple. In later appearances it was black and in many issues it is actually colored grey.
  • Originally, Lobo belonged to a race of aliens called the Velorpians. This was retroactively changed in later appearances to the Czarnians.[8]
