The Man of Steel is facing off against the Main Man in an upcoming comic book from the DC Universe Black Label. The two powerhouses are gearing up for a battle that is being billed as having “not safe for work” level violence.
“Superman fights for truth, justice and the American way. He’s a symbol of the very best in us, a champion of the helpless and oppressed, and just an overall nice guy,” DC Nation reports. “Lobo, to put it ridiculously mildly, is not.”
They continue, “In other words, don’t expect them to trade bro hugs and beers when they come together in Superman vs. Lobo, the new DC Black Label series from writers Tim Seeley and Sarah Beattie and artist Mirka Andolfo. What can you expect? Lots of laughs, plenty of fights and more than a few guys getting fragged in creative new ways. After all, Seeley and Beattie are the minds behind Money Shot, the very NSFW indie hit about…well, if you don’t know, we’re just going to let you google it and learn that yourself.”
“Superman vs. Lobo finds the two mega-powered aliens on a collision course as they contend with a jealous, but popular extraterrestrial named Numen and a mysterious doctor intent on studying both of them. Will the Man of Steel and the Main Man destroy the universe fighting with each other, or will they somehow find a way to coexist,” DC adds.
DC Comics also released a “first look” for the first issue.

“As a DC Black Label series, Superman vs. Lobo is largely free from continuity and content restraints. That means Lobo can swear all he’d like and, we suppose, Superman can as well (though he seems to have some real trouble with it in issue #1). Like with most Lobo comics, the miniseries is outrageous at times and plenty of fun, but Seeley’s quick to note that it’s not all jokes all the time,” they said.
