Dragon Ball Super officially introduced a monstrous new version of the classic villain Cell with its new movie, and Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero has revealed a closer look at Cell Max with some cool new promotional art! Dragon Ball Super finally returned for its first new anime entry in four long years with Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, and much like the previous film, this new entry added some very intriguing new characters to the franchise. It wasn't without its surprise returns, however, as Cell was brought back to the fold as the major villain in the climax of the film.
It was a much different kind of return for Cell than fans had expected, however, as while the new monster indeed looked and somewhat acted like the classic Dragon Ball Z villain, it was far removed from all of the personality and flair that fans had fallen in love with in the villain's original incarnation. Instead this new "Cell Max" was a kaiju sized monster that blindingly attacked everything around it until Gohan and Piccolo had teamed up to bring the major villain down by the movie's end. Now Dragon Ball Super's official Twitter has shown off a close look at Cell Max's new design with some cool art that you can check out below:
If you wanted to see Cell Max in action, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is now making its way through theaters across North America and other international territories for a little while longer. As for what to expect, Crunchyroll and Sony Pictures Entertainment tease the movie as such, "The Red Ribbon Army was once destroyed by Son Goku. Individuals, who carry on its spirit, have created the ultimate Androids, Gamma 1 and Gamma 2. These two Androids call themselves "Super Heroes". They start attacking Piccolo and Gohan…What is the New Red Ribbon Army's objective? In the face of approaching danger, it is time to awaken, Super Hero!"
