Hello fellow Comic Book Fans! It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more fascinating characters. Now, let’s begin!

Praxis was a detective who got his powers from incredibly bizarre circumstances. During one case, involving a serial killer, Praxis’ niece was killed by the psychopath, and escaped using his powers. Praxis then teamed up with the Spectre to take down the villain, and in a strange turn of events, the killer died possessing Praxis’ body. The possession left him with incredible telepathic and telekinetic powers, which he used to fight crime. He soon joined a team of heroes known as the Conglomerate, which unfortunately didn’t last. He now is semi-retired, but continues to help out when duty calls.
- Lobo Real Name: Lobo Status: Intergalactic Bounty Hunter Ht: 5’11” Wt: 227 lbs (Although it fluctuates depending on what series he’s in) First Appeared: Omega Men (Vol. 1) #3 June 1st, 1983 Creator: DC Hair Color: Black with glowing-blue highlights Eye Color: Red Powers/ Abilities: Incredible healing factor which makes him neigh impossible to kill, super strength, incredible stamina and durability, highly advanced senses, genius-level intellect, huge arsenal of weapons, mono wheel for ground transportation, custom-built spacecraft
Lobo is one of my absolute favorite comic book characters of all time. His story and adventures are absolutely insane, and some even give Deadpool a run for his money! Lobo was the “last” person of the Czarian race, and led to the planet’s destruction. We later learn that the only other survivor was his 4th grade teacher, but that’s a story for another time! His incredible variety of super powers combined with his razor-sharp wit make him a insanely deadly opponent. He roams the galaxy as an intergalactic bounty hunter that always gets the job done in the most brutal fashion possible. His hits include; Santa, numerous elves, 99.9% of Czaria’s population, Zatara, and a fish god. While not necessarily evil, Lobo tends to be in the neutral affiliation, doing things his way, and not worrying about the consequences. He has definitely earned his title of “Deadliest Assassin in the Universe” , and is guaranteed to leave a trail of bodies in his wake.
