Did You Know?


The starfish-like creature in the Preserver's collection is Starro the Conqueror, a galactic villain who was the very first foe of the Justice League of America in their introduction story in DC's "The Brave and the Bold" #28 (Feb-Mar, 1960). See more »


Lobo: Adios, Wrinkles. You want any more rare dorks snagged, you got my number.
Preserver: Actually, there is one other being I need for my collection: the last Czarnian.
Lobo: Ha! That's rich! I'm the last Czarnian.
[to Superman]
Lobo: I fragged the rest of the planet for my high school science project. Gave myself an "A."

Craziest & Most Humorous Episode Of The Season
15 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the wildest episode I have seen so far and the beginning is especially a real hoot: a bunch of crazy-shaped Star Wars-type aliens fighting a biker-bounty hunter. The latter's dialog is tremendous. The guy is crude, rude and very funny. He winds up, however, getting hired by the "ultimate bounty hunter - "The Preserver," some round-shaped alien with amazing powers. His job: bring back "that Kryptonian (Superman) to add to my collection of one-of-a-kind creatures of the universe."

So, "Lobo" or, as he calls himself: "The Main Man," heads out on his motorcycle-space ship (complete with skulls - the guy looks like an Oakland Raiders fan) to Earth to grab Superman. This is the most entertaining villain so far in this animated TV adventure series. Brad Garrett does a nice job voicing "Lobo."

Battles ensue and Superman winds up chasing him into space where the "The Preserver" traps both parties, intending to keep both in his elaborate "zoo."

Superman is trapped and his powers are taken away by a special light inside his cage. How will get out of this? Will Lobo escape?

To be continued.....
