Here in the UK, we’ve yet to actually see Krypton on our screens. The series is confirmed to be airing on E4 at some point later this year, but let’s be honest, we’re not all that fussed about seeing the stories of Superman’s grandad play out. But now, there’s certainly a huge hook to get us excited for the show’s second season!
Straight from San Diego Comic Con, SYFY and DC Entertainment have announced that the villain of Krypton’s second year will be the hugely popular Lobo.
For those unfamiliar with the Lobo character, he began life back in 1984 as a creation of Roger Slifer and Keith Giffen. An intergalactic Czarnian bounty hunter who rides through the stars on his badass motorcycle, Lobo has battled and bested some of the most powerful superheroes on DC’s roster, including Superman, Green Lantern, and the Martian Manhunter.
For years now, a Lobo movie has been mooted, with the latest on that project coming earlier this year when Michael Bay was eying a big-screen outing for this no-nonsense sort. Whether that still happens, we’ll have to wait and see. We do know, however, that this massively popular character will be heading to Krypton, though.
