First Photo Of Lobo From Syfy's Krypton Season 2

Only a day after announcing the casting of Emmett J. Scanlan, Syfy has unveiled the first look at the Constantine actor as Lobo on Krypton.

Joining the Superman prequel in its second season, he's described in a way that suggests his television depiction will stick close to his DC comics roots: "A ruthless bounty hunter, who murdered his entire species, he possesses a genius-level intellect when it comes to matters of warfare, making him a deadly adversary. Imbued with superhuman strength, and virtually immortal, Lobo will keep coming until the job is finished. His word is the only thing Lobo holds sacred; and although he’ll never violate the letter of an agreement, he might disregard its spirit from time to time!"

Created by Roger Slifer and Keith Giffen, Lobo debuted in 1983 in DC’s Omega Men #3 as a self-centered villain with a penchant for mindless violence, but he gained popularity in the 1990s as a parody of Wolverine, Punisher and other antiheroes. The cigar-chomping, ruthless Czarnian has, over the years, become a fan favorite.

Set two generations before the planet's destruction, Krypton centers on Superman’s grandfather Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), who’s warned by the time-traveling Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos) of a threat that could alter the future, ensuring the Man of Steel is never born. Although for much of the first season the characters, and the viewers, are led to believe the danger is an attack by Brainiac, it’s ultimately revealed to be something else entirely.

The first season introduced three major antagonists to Krypton, Brainiac, General Zod and Doomsday, any of whom could be a target for Lobo.
