The Last Czarnian and "The Main Man," Lobo is the most badass bounty hunter in the galaxy.
He’s the best bounty hunter in the known universe and the last sentient being you’d ever want to get into a bar fight with if you hope to make it out in one piece. He’s the intergalactic alien badass known as Lobo, often called by his nickname “The Main Man,” and if you’re lucky, you’ll never cross his path.
You might be asking yourself why an alien being would be named after an Earth animal, even one as fierce as a wolf. That’s because the word “Lobo” in this instance translates into “he who devours your entrails and thoroughly enjoys it” in the ancient Khund dialect. Turns out, his parents could not have given him a more fitting name.
Riding around the spaceways on his “space cycle,” which he named Spacehog, Lobo exhibits all the traits someone would associate with a biker in a Hell’s Angels-style motorcycle gang on Earth, from his long hair and tattoos, down to his kill or be killed attitude. There’s nothing in the galaxy that Lobo loves more than his pet dolphins, a good fight, the ladies and getting drunk in some intergalactic dive bar. Probably all in that order.
Over the years, Lobo has fought on the side of both the good guys and the bad, pretty much just drifting towards whoever pays him the most to get the job done, or which side promises him the better, bloodier fight. He’s tussled with Superman and the Justice League, and just about every superhero in the DC Universe.
