Today we review Lobo;
Lobo really isn’t funny. I’m sorry but he isn’t.
He’s a parody of the over-powered hyper-violent,
steroid-slinging late 80’s/90’s comic book
universe. He’s the literal incarnation of every
“Liefeld” joke, comment or criticism you’ve ever
read that wasn’t either; witty, amusing, droll,
sarcastic, insightful, original, or clever. (So
that would be all of them then).
Simply put, Lobo is witless and dated as both a
character and as a concept. And the fact the he
is still used in the DC universe illustrates a
chronic lack of innovation, ingenuity and
originality on the part of every writer has even

You see, Lobo replicates himself once stunned.
And he’s a six drop.
A six drop.
That replicates itself.
That’s just stupid.
You have no downsides to playing this card.
Defensively Lobo’s effect means that stunning
him is a bad strategy for your opponent. (At
best they’d have to stun and KO & or bounce the
guy to avoid losing the advantage). Offensively
it means that having him stunned is a great

character in play (And since Lobo’s effect
triggers off him being stunned, if you can avoid
KO’ing the original stunned copy, you’ve
effectively cloned him).
Plus, any combos that revolve around stunning a
character. I mean come on.
As a slight weakness this card isn’t team
stamped. As a further weakness (unless there has
been an erratum published recently) it can’t
replicate from copies you have in your hand. But
frankly that counts for nothing.
This card isn’t balanced. Or fair. Nor should it
have been released.
And it acts as a fine argument for anyone who
believes in segregation between Marvel VS and DC

annoying ability. In Lobo's voice: "When I get
