TNTM: Lobo, the last Czarnian, returns

All Hail, the return of Lobo

Another of what we perceive as missteps by DC Comics with the New 52 launch was the treatment given to Lobo. They made it so the Lobo we have all grown to love was an impostor. The big, gruff, hard drinking, gun for hire, biker Lobo was supposed to have used the real Lobo’s identity.

The introduce a new, educated, sleek, but still ruthless Lobo. Don’t get us wrong, the new Lobo was an interesting character, but the old Lobo held a special place in our hearts… and in the DC Universe. His interactions with other DC characters produced some of the most entertaining situations. The new Lobo didn’t resonate with readers and his title was eventually cancelled.

Imagine our excitement when we heard the news that Lobo would be returning. Now double that excitement when we heard it would be with DC powerhouse comic Harley Quinn. Then raise that excitement to the power of infinity when we were told that Simon Bisley would be helping out with Lobo’s return. Paint us overjoyed.

We can only hope this sparks enough interest for DC Comics to bring the last Czarnian back with his own title. How about a DC Comics Rebirth title for Lobo? Make him one of the key components to the timeline story.

About Lobo

Lobo is a fictional character that appears in comic books published by DC Comics. The Lobo character was created by Roger Slifer and Keith Giffen, and first appeared in Omega Men #3 (June 1983). Lobo is an alien born on the Utopian planet of Czarnia and works as an interstellar mercenary and bounty hunter.

Lobo was first introduced as a hardened villain in the 1980s. He soon fell out of use with writers. He remained in limbo until his revival as an anti-hero biker with his own comic in the early 1990s. Writers attempted to use Lobo as an imitation of the 1990s trend towards “grim and gritty” superhero stories epitomized by such Marvel Comics characters as Cable, Wolverine, and Punisher. Instead of becoming a parody he was enthusiastically accepted by fans of the trend. This popularity led to the character having a much higher profile in DC Comics stories from then on, as well as starring roles in various series in the decades since.

Powers and Abilities

Lobo possesses extraordinary strength of undefined limits. Lobo also possesses superhuman durability. In one instance, Lobo was declared immortal. He died and went to hell, but he proved too much for the demons. When he was then sent to heaven he wreaked so much havoc that he was permanently banished from the afterlife.

If Lobo sustains injury, his accelerated healing factor enables him to regenerate damaged or destroyed tissue with superhuman speed and efficiency. For instance, Lobo can regenerate out of a pool of his own blood, apparently recycling the cells. He is immune to the effects of aging and disease.

Lobo possesses an amazingly developed sense of smell which allows him to track objects between solar systems. He also has a tracking ability enabling him to track an individual across galactic distances.

He is a formidable combatant with expertise in multiple forms of armed and unarmed combat. His favorite weapon is a large titanium alloy chain with a large gutting hook connected at the end. He keeps it wrapped around his right wrist. Lobo also uses high-grade explosives and advanced firearms.

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 corresponding antidotes. In one version of his backstory he released such a plague on Czarnia as a science project which resulted in the deaths of the entire population in the span of one week.

His vehicle, some sort of space-faring motorcycle (the “Space Hog”), often accompanies him. It is his own design. Despite its size it is capable of extended and speedy travel throughout space. Further, it protects those in its immediate vicinity from the hazards of space and somehow permits the ability to breathe and speak. He was also able to scavenge parts from a destroyed time hopper and attach them to his own bike producing a working time machine. Lobo is fluent in many alien languages (according to Lobo, 17,897). He is extremely knowledgeable in the locations and cultures of worlds without external references.

It is not fully known the extent to which his powers are common for his race or unique to him. In the miniseries The Last Czarnian and elsewhere it is stated that the cloning and healing abilities are traits possessed by all Czarnians, as is the apparent ability to survive in the vacuum of space.

TNTM: Justice League vs. Suicide Squad

The World’s Greatest Heroes Face Off Against Belle Reve’s Worst Villains

JLVSSSThe Justice League has long been a popular team for DC Comics. All the heavy hitters in DC’s lineup have been member at some point.

The DC Entertainment movies are building toward the team’s debut on the big screen with Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, and Aquaman. This movie promises to be a big hit. Let’s hope they find a suitable villain that will require them to band together.

The success of Suicide Squad in the theaters tells me people love their villains. The Squad is a collection of some of the deadliest and most intriguing bad guys. They say there is no honor among thieves, but the members of the Squad displayed some good teamwork. There was more than once a member placed the team above themselves.

Problem is these 2 groups are opposed to the other. When the Justice League finds out about the existence of the Suicide Squad they make it their mission to end it. They believe the villains they have worked hard to catch should remain in prison.

The Justice League will do their best to end the Suicide Squad black ops program. One small thing, the Suicide Squad does not want to have their program shut down.

The 2 groups clash over this little disagreement. Oh, and DC has mentioned there is another team in play that has the goods on the whole DC Universe. How exciting!

Official Press Release

With a record-setting 12 million copies sold this summer, DC Entertainment has set the comic book world on fire since REBIRTH launched in June. With 21 of the initial 30 monthly and twice-monthly titles going to press multiple times, comic book fans are already asking, “What’s next?”

The answer arrives this December, as DC announces its first major event of Rebirth: the Justice League facing off against the Suicide Squad. This two-month event will pit DC’s two greatest super-teams against each other in a six-issue weekly miniseries, beginning with a special prelude in the pages of SUICIDE SQUAD #8, and with issues of SUICIDE SQUAD (#9 and #10) and JUSTICE LEAGUE (#12 and #13) serving as tie-ins during January.

The prelude issue sets the stage for issues #1 and #2 of JUSTICE LEAGUE VS. SUICIDE SQUAD, written by Joshua Williamson (THE FLASH, Vertigo’s FROSTBITE) with art by Jason Fabok (JUSTICE LEAGUE: DARKSEID WAR) and Tony S. Daniel (JUSTICE LEAGUE, DEATHSTROKE). Issues #3 through #6 debut weekly throughout January, along with the special tie-in issues of SUICIDE SQUAD written by Rob Williams and JUSTICE LEAGUE by guest writer Tim Seeley (NIGHTWING, GRAYSON).

The day that Amanda Waller has long dreaded has finally come to pass: the Justice League has discovered the existence of Task Force X! America’s paragons of truth and justice won’t take well to a government-sponsored team of black ops super-villains (with bombs implanted in their heads), but before the Justice League can shut down the Suicide Squad, a bigger problem looms: another deadly strike team is lurking in the shadows, one that could expose dark secrets throughout the DC Universe, with ties to the hidden truths of REBIRTH. Longtime enemies such as Batman and Deadshot, the Flash and Boomerang, and Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn will have to put aside their differences when an evil threat once thought lost to the DC Universe makes their return.

“This story is another building block to REBIRTH. With all of our heroes back on the board, it’s the super-villains turn. And the events within will set the stage for REBIRTH Phase 2 as a surprising team emerges and another piece of the puzzle of the future of the DC Universe, and the past, comes into focus,” said Geoff Johns, President and Chief Creative Officer, DC Entertainment.

“I’m really excited about writing this story,” said Williamson. “This is a great opportunity to remind fans that, outside of Batman, the DC Universe isn’t aware that Task Force X or Amanda Waller even exists. To ultimately bring these villains to light for the entire DC Universe to see should make future Suicide Squad stories that much more interesting. And by the end of the story, both teams may discover that they have more in common than they thought, whether they like it or not.”

The advanced solicitation

The first major event storyline of DC’s Rebirth era is here!

This issue, written by Joshua Williamson with art and cover by Jason Fabok, kicks off an explosive six-issue weekly event! It all begins with a day Amanda Waller always knew would come: the Justice League discovers the existence of the Suicide Squad! This government-sponsored black-ops team of super-villains with bombs implanted in their brains is obviously a deal-breaker for Earth’s paragons of truth and justice! But you can bet that the Wall and her Task Force X won’t go down without the fight to end all fights as this weekly series gets underway!

TNTM Suicide Squad the movie preview

Jack and Troy from ZiaComics.com get all nerdy about the upcoming Suicide Squad movie.

The Suicide Squad is an aptly named group. They are some of the most vile and treacherous villains that could be pulled from the depths of all of DC Comics prisons. The idea behind their black ops group is the government will take time off their prison sentence for successfully completing missions.

The catch is the missions all have slim to no chance of success. The government will disavow any knowledge of the group if any members are caught or killed. The members are implanted with an explosive device that can be triggered if they deviate from the mission or attempt to escape.

The Suicide Squad has had many members over the years. The government selects inmates that are most suited for the mission at hand. The movie is using a particular set of villains/anit-heroes.

The cast as we know it so far:

Will Smith as Deadshot: An expert marksman and assassin. Smith stated that Deadshot and Harley Quinn are “allies” in the film, but that they do not know what is happening with the other characters.

Jared Leto as Joker: A psychopathic supervillain. Leto described his role as “nearly Shakespearean” and a “beautiful disaster of a character”. About portraying the villain he stated “I took a pretty deep dive. But this was a unique opportunity and I couldn’t imagine doing it another way. It was fun, playing these psychological games. But at the same time it was very painful.”

Leto never broke character throughout filming with Smith going as far as stating he never met him. In preparation for the role, Leto spent his time alone, listened to gospel music from the 1920s—commenting he senses “Joker may be much older than people think”—and read literature on shamanism.

Influences for the character’s appearance include Mexican cartel bosses and the work of Alejandro Jodorowsky. Leto stated that he spoke with doctors and spent time with psychopaths in preparation for his role. The character’s tattoos were added by Ayer, who considered it gave a modernized gangster look to Joker.

Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn: A crazed super villain and former psychiatrist. Producer Richard Suckle described the character as “a fan fave. Funny, crazy, scary… You can’t come up with enough adjectives to describe all the different things you see her do.” Robbie described Quinn as one of the Squad’s most manipulative members, and her relationship with Joker as “incredibly dysfunctional”, adding that Quinn is “mad about him—like, literally, mad. She’s crazy. But she loves him. And it’s a really unhealthy, dysfunctional relationship. But an addictive one.”

Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag: A military officer who leads the Task Force X team. Tom Hardy was previously cast in the role but was forced to drop out due to scheduling conflicts.

Viola Davis as Amanda Waller: The government official who gives out the Squad’s orders. Davis stated she is fascinated by the character, singling out her psychology and strength and describing her as a “powerful black woman, hard, ready to pick up a gun and shoot anyone at will.” She described Waller as “relentless in her villainy” and noted that her powers are “her intelligence and her complete lack of guilt.” Davis read M. E. Thomas’ autobiography Confessions of a Sociopath to prepare for her role.

Jai Courtney as Boomerang: An assassin who utilizes deadly boomerangs. About his role, Courtney stated, “he is an absolute bogan, in the purest sense. David Ayer’s first instruction was, ‘find your inner shitbag’.”

Jay Hernandez as El Diablo: A former Los Angeles gang member who can summon flames. Hernandez sets his character apart from his teammates as he “just wants to stay out of the fight”, while “most of the Squad members are happy to get out there and kill people”.

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc: A supervillain who suffers from a skin condition that causes him to develop reptilian features. Akinnuoye-Agbaje described the character as “a cannibal with rage issues”.

Cara Delevingne as June Moone / Enchantress: A powerful sorceress. An ancient evil force, she is inadvertently unleashed by adventure-seeker June Moone after a long time of imprisonment. Enchantress is not a member of the Suicide Squad, but her powers draw Amanda Waller’s attention. Delevingne explains the entity is “an ancient sorceress. A feral being.”

Karen Fukuhara as Tatsu Yamashiro/Katana: An expert martial artist and swords-woman. She serves as Rick Flag’s bodyguard and wields the mystical Soultaker blade, capable of trapping the souls of its victims. As she is a volunteer, not a criminal, she does not have a micro-bomb implant. Fukuhara stated that Katana “has morals and codes. She can also slice through hundreds of people without taking a breath.”

Adam Beach as Christopher Weiss/Slipknot: Another member of the squad.

To further establish the interconnection between the films of the shared universe, Ben Affleck will reprise his role as Batman.

Scott Eastwood (son of Clint Eastwood) is in the movie but his role has to be divulged.
