The first look at Krypton's latest foe arrived earlier this week, and it's bringing to mind a certain horror icon.
The hit SYFY series recently revealed the first look at Lobo (Emmett J. Scanlan), the fan-favorite bounty hunter who is expected to factor into Season 2. In the days since the photo was released, fans have had an array of reactions, from praising the character's live-action debut to poking fun at the aesthetic of it all.

It’s a fragging honour to join KRYPTON, it’s a mother fragging honour to be invited back into the DC COMIC world. But to take on the greatest bounty Hunter of any galaxy, LOBO?? That shit ain’t just an honour, it’s a mission. And it fits like a hand to a fragging glove. A first look at our ultimate bastich, Lobo. This has never been done before. Making history. Taking risks. Balls out. Open wide. #Lobo #Krypton #DCComics #AssassinToRoyalty #ScourgeOfTheCosmos
One common thread has been to compare Krypton's Lobo to Rob Zombie, particularly when the beloved director and musician used to don white face paint on stage. Some of these parallels have been in good fun, while others maybe come across a bit more harshly. Here's a round-up of some of those responses.
We Can See It

He looks like a Rob Zombie look-alike after a tornado picks him up and slams him into a Hot Topic, a halloween costume store and then into some old rags. Or like the porn parody version of Lobo - both of those work. https://t.co/mZyy5RFYiA— The ghoul formely known as Steve Climaco (@SteveClimaco) October 4, 2018
A Good Point
Okay, let's be honest, who here expected a live action TV version of Lobo not to look like a Rob Zombie themed pro-wrestler? https://t.co/0yudowXil9— An American Werewolf In Louisiana (@neokefka_99) October 4, 2018
