Games: Lobo is Now Live on ‘Injustice: Gods Among Us’
Posted on May 8, 2013
Ever wonder what the attraction to Lobo as a character was? Aside from being an amalgam of various comic tropes and stereotypes, something about him ended up resonating to the point that thirty years since his inception, the anti-hero (who is pretty much just such a badass villain that people still like him) finds his way to the roster of Injustice: Gods Among Us as the first of four DLC characters.
For those who purchased the Season Pass, Lobo was announced on launch day for the game as the first member of the DLC roster. From the video below, he looks like a combination of fighting styles of some of the other brute characters like Solomon Grundy or Doomsday with the gunplay of Deathstroke. The trailer also gives a brief history of Lobo and the concept behind him, and how Lobo started out almost as a parody before taking on a life of his own.
Up next is going to be the Barbara Gordon version of Batgirl who will be the second DLC character making its way to Injustice: Gods Among Us. Take a look at the trailer and don’t forget to let us know how you like playing as Lobo in the DLC out now.
