Lobo is a DLC character in Injustice: Gods Among Us. He is the first DLC character and is a Power Character. He was released on May 7 at a cost of $4.99, or free to those with a Season Pass, as well as buying the Ultimate Edition of Injustice.
Lobo is the last of his known alien race, the Czarnians. He is a violent and destructive man through and through, even to his Czarnian name which means "he who devours your entrails and thoroughly enjoys it." He also committed mass genocide against his entire race using a swarm of flying scorpions. Seeing nothing else to do, Lobo spent his days as a bounty hunter, killing anyone as long as the price is right. He's also been one to team up with different people in the DC Universe, namely Green Lantern and Superman.
Injustice: Gods Among Us
Lobo is featured in Doomsday's ending, with the monster seeking him out as a worthy opponent after terraforming Earth into prehistoric Krypton.
Powers and Abilities
Lobo is a Czarnian, the very last of his kind, and one of the most dangerous beings in the universe. His Czarnian physiology grants him superhuman strength, speed, stamina, and invulnerability all on par with a sun powered Kryptonian, to the point where he can survive in space unaided without need of oxygen. What's more, even if Lobo is somehow wounded, he possesses an extraordinarily powerful regenerative healing factor that can heal any injury inflicted on him. If Lobo is reduced to a single drop of blood, he will regenerate a new body at full health, he can even grow copies of himself from his spilled blood, making him virtually unkillable. Lobo also has a powerful sense of smell, allowing him to track anyone down by their scent alone.
Outside of his innate powers, Lobo prefers to use a hook and chain as his primary weapon in a fight, using the weapon to pull himself forward, or reel his opponent in towards him. Lobo also uses a double-barreled sawed off shotgun that he can load with nuclear charged bullets for maximum damage against normally invulnerable opponents.

There was no shortage of vendettas during Superman's reign and no shortage of bounties for Lobo to collect. He became one of the richest men in the universe, assassinating those who ran a foul of the High Councilor. Lobo's already massive ego inflated along with his rising wealth. Lobo searched for an assignment worthy of his abilities. With so many super powered beings dead at his hand, however, bounties were scarce. Lobo decided to use his wealth to make his own ultimate contract: he would kill the denizens of New Genesis, home of the New Gods.
Lobo wears a dark blue leather jacket with two sets of three spikes emerging from the shoulders, and the words 'Bite me fanboy' on the back. He is shirtless, with a bandolier wrapped across his bare chest. He wears a spiked dark-blue gauntlet on his left arm while his right forearm has a chain wrapped around it. Dark-blue chaps cover his black leather pants, and he wears a belt with a skull-shaped buckle lined with grenades and ammo pouches, as well as a holster for his pistol. His boots are metallic greaves with three spikes emerging out the sides and skulls on the knees.
