A certain Czarnian is worse than Lex Luthor and even lacks the moral scruples of Darkseid, Superman claims in a preview for Superman vs. Lobo #2.
Superman has some harsh words of comparison for Lobo in the latest issue of Superman vs. Lobo — in fact, he goes so far as to say that the intergalactic bounty hunter is worse than Lex Luthor and Darkseid.
An official preview for Superman vs. Lobo #2 by Tim Seeley, Sarah Beattie and Mirka Andolfo shows the Man of Steel on a restored version of Lobo’s homeworld of Czarnia. There, Superman engages in yardwork and converses with Dr. Semedea Flik, who was introduced in issue #1 as a biologist and wildlife photographer who studies the survivors of extinct species — a classification that both Superman, as the last son of Krypton, and Lobo, as the last son of Czarnia, happen to share.
Superman quickly tells Dr. Flik that he doesn’t think much of Lobo, however, emphasizing that the so-called Main Man “is the worst person I’ve ever met, and I regularly have to spend time with Lex Luthor.” Superman adds that even Darkseid “has more of a moral code than Lobo.”

- Superman and Lobo’s dreams come true! But maybe it’s not always best to get what you wished for. When the godlike alien Numen brings the planets Krypton and Czarnia back from the grave, he makes a terrible error and puts Superman and Lobo on the wrong home planets! Now each must find their way off the resurrected worlds that seem to be their worst nightmares come to life!
Superman’s extreme words might be the result of his frustration with Lobo, which was depicted in issue #1, with the two coming to blows multiple times and the Main Man even participating in a social media campaign to discredit the Man of Steel. In the conclusion of the issue, the pair were transported to their respective homeworlds by an alien entity named Numen, who unfortunately mixed up their origin stories and placed Superman on Czarnia and Lobo on Krypton.
Despite Superman claiming that Lobo lacks a moral code, the bounty hunter actually possesses his own twisted version of honor and has regularly stated that he never goes back on his word, at least as far as his contracts are concerned. In the 1995 one-shot Lobo/Deadman: The Brave and the Bald, Lobo even went to great lengths to kill himself when a contract tricked him into doing so, only to eventually be resurrected with Deadman’s aid.
Lobo’s arrogance and willingness to cause massive death and destruction while completing his bounties — as well as his extreme strength, which is nearly a match for Superman’s — have nevertheless pitted the two aliens against each other at regular intervals. This dynamic continues in Superman vs. Lobo, which also serves as a character study and a “dark buddy comedy” outlining the differences between the two characters, according to series-co-writer Tim Seeley.
