Obsérvese con mucho cuidadín la siguiente FALACIA: "Como Lobo ha tenido varias interpretaciones a los largo del tiempo, ahora cogemos nosotros y hacemos otra, tirando por la borda los hallazgos de 30 años de historia del personaje".
Claro que ha tenido interpretaciones, pero unas son correctas y otras no. Esta, no.
"To begin with, I'm a longtime Lobo fan. I first came to love him in Justice League International back in the '80s, then in L.E.G.I.O.N. '89. He was a fun character, but played fairly straight — scary, edgy, and unstoppable. Then the Giffen/Grant/Bisley Lobo's Back series sent him way over the top and ten years later as I was editing Alan Grant's Lobo monthly the character was played for farce. A few years ago, I even got to write the Main Man in my R.E.B.E.L.S. series that was really a L.E.G.I.O.N. revival."
"I say all this to underscore that I've seen Lobo's look and tone change several times over the years, and I'm almost amused by the backlash that greeted the new Lobo's announcement. Now that folks have had a chance to read Marguerite Bennet's Lobo issue, I hope they've seen the less farcical, more intense Lobo is a pretty effective character. I feel like he's dangerous again. And I know he has a cool new backstory that will play out over time. If anything, he's more like the early days of Wolverine, when part of the character's appeal was the sense of mystery."
"So in Supergirl, we'll tease a few new things about Lobo and see that he is super-intense, focused, cunning, and unpredictable. I still feel like I'm writing the real Lobo, I'm just not going for the cheap laughs — the crass, loutish stuff. Not that I hated that stuff, but it's okay to change. I love the campy, wink-and-a-nod Roger Moore Bond films. I also love the more serious, stripped-down Daniel Craig Bond. This Lobo is more of the Daniel Craig approach, if that makes any sense."
"At the end of the day, though, this is not a story about Lobo. It's Supergirl's book and it's her story. Lobo is there as a sort of dark reflection of her. They're both super-powerful loners left over from dead planets. Lobo has channeled his power and rage into becoming the most dangerous bounty-hunter/assassin in the galaxy. Supergirl's still trying to figure out what to do with her power and her lot in life. Tangling with Lobo will show her one path she might go down. It's really a cautionary tale for her, and she'll come away knowing that she could easily end up like him if she doesn't get her act together."
