Introducing the new 52 Lobo

Fans of Lobo who are anticipating this issue of VIllains month one-shot featuring Lobo, written by Marguerite Bennett with art by Ben Oliver. DC Comics has debuted a new Lobo design by Superman artist Kenneth Rocafort. 

"The Lobo you’ve seen so far in the New 52 is not who you think he is," said DC Comics Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras on the DC blog. "In this one-shot, you’ll be introduced to the real Lobo. A ruthless killer, Lobo is on a quest to kill the man who has taken his name."

"This Lobo is equal parts strong, vicious, and driven. There’s a darker and more logical idea about what a force of nature like him is capable of. After all, this is someone who can infiltrate high society, fly a space ship, and adhere to a very specific moral code that’s not your typical anti-hero one. Oh, and, this one-shot takes place very far away from Earth. And when I say very far away, I mean it takes place literally on the other side of the galaxy."
"In this design, Ken updated Lobo’s facial tattoos and weaponry by adding laser edges to his blades and gloves that’ll give him extra strength with their mechanical usage. In the end, Ken transformed Lobo into a lean, mean killing machine."
It's a cool design but honestly it feels like it could have gone to such deeper and broader horizons story wise this look gives it more of a son of Lobo feel, possibly joining the Teen Titans or even Red Hood and the Outlaws. We'll see though how this new look interacts in the 52 DC world below are some of the looks that could have been.
