Man has appeared even in cartoons. Precisely in the animated series of Superman
and Justice League. In the case of Big Blue cartoon, in which practically
appears a “special guest” per cartoon, the episode with Main Man made his first
appearance in 1996 and they even commented about a possible realization of the
cartoon exclusive of Lobo, but hasn’t been concreted (further details,
on the bottom).
Anyway, some animated small
films have already been made in Flash, with a more simplified strokes than
this one beside, and that can be checked in the
downloads section. In the League
cartoon, Lobo also appeared in a very funny double episode where tried to
replace Superman, that everybody thought he was dead.
Lobo appears in the following
Episode 8 - The Main Man -
Episode 11 - The Main Man - part two
Episode 36 - Warrior Queen
(PS: Here he isn’t a main character
after Superman, he is a special participation in the last seconds of the cartoon)
This picture of Lobo you see above
is the conventional drawing used in the animated series. In the
end of this page,
there are some wave files with some sounds of the English version of the cartoon
bringing Main Man sentences.
Below, you have some pictures of the
series with Lobo and following it, the description of the episodes.
Description of the episodes
The Main Man - part one
Lobo appears in the beginning of the episode hunting a weird ET. When he taking
the prisoner to the contractor, he is captured by a traction radius, that takes
him to the spacecraft Preserver, a guy who “collects” the last species of living
beings of the whole universe. He hires Lobo to capture Superman, the last
Kryptonian. Main Man goes to the Earth and creates obstacles to Big Blue appear.
Both of them get a good-kicking for hours. Event Lois Lane tries to defend
Superman when he is down on the floor, but Lobo quickly knocks her over. Main
Man, then, goes to the space, for the Boy Scout to follow him. Superman gets on
a spacecraft and fights with Lobo again, in the space. Meanwhile, Preserver send
a radius and finally captures Big Blue, putting him in a prison in a form of the
Krypton atmosphere, including with the red sun that takes the Superman powers
off. In the end, when Lobo goes to collect the payment, Preserver captures him
too, because it wanted The Last Czarnian. Continues...
The Main Man - part two
In the beginning, there is a short appearance of a bounty hunter opponent of
Lobo accusing him of having accepted to leave the prisoner of the last episode
escape. The scene, then, goes back to the spacecraft Preserver, where Superman
manages to escape from the prison and, soon after, he releases Main Man, under
the condition of never threaten the Earth. They began to be chased by robots
sent by Preserver, besides fight with a monster. In addition to that, the bounty
hunters mentioned in the beginning of this episode appear to hunt Main Man soon
after he has rescued his prisoner. Lobo goes to the site where there are his
motto and the Big Blue’s spacecraft while Superman defeats the bounty hunters
after recovering his powers in an environment that pretended to be like the
Earth’s yellow sun. Before catching the motto, Lobo personally faces the
Preserver, that transforms itself in an enormous monster. The Boy Scout arrives
to help Main Man to detonate the animal once and for all. In the end, Lobo
delivers the prisoner to the contractant, that makes the liar bounty hunters
slaves. Superman, to lodge all the animals Preserver maintained in captivity in
its Fortress of Solitude.
