The nerd world just got their first look at Krypton's newest big bad, and it looks like fans are a little bit divided.
Earlier today, SYFY revealed the first photo of Emmett J. Scanlan as Lobo, the galactic bounty hunter who will make his small-screen debut in Season 2 of Krypton.
Considering how beloved of a character Lobo has become over the years, it's pretty easy to see why fans are so passionate about this reveal. But surprisingly, the response has ranged quite a bit, from some being excited by the costume, to others voicing their negative opinions in some very creative ways. Here's a round-up of some of those responses.
Why does Lobo look like he'd be the final boss if Hot Topic was a Video Game?October 4, 2018
A Little Uncanny

A Valid Point
"Lobo is supposed to be huge like the comics!"
Comics are unreal btw
And if they used cgi to make him larger... You would still complain you entitled garbage nerd
Bane looked great..here... It doesn't have to be bulky
Also Krypton's Lobo... Well is Lobo, you're just dumbass pic.twitter.com/CxnKTuj3Tp— failed to send tweet, can't rt status (@V_ALLEL) October 4, 2018

People are confused, so: this is KRYPTON’s Lobo, who looks a lot like Dollar Store Rob Zombie.— Scott Wampler™ @ FALLOUT 76 (@ScottWamplerBMD) October 4, 2018
Just Wait and See
Nerds always think less of krypton then they get proven wrong
They thought they're gonna go with
"Vril Dox II "but they went with the original one ?
Then they thought they're gonna go with 52 Lobo and went with the classic one

I mean...I'm not sure how they could have done live-action Lobo without him looking ridiculous? pic.twitter.com/GkOvgnWXo1— Amy Meets The Wolfman ? (@amylopan) October 4, 2018
