The Great Super-Costume Poll: Wolverine Yellow/Wolverine Brown


Today we're inviting you to vote on one of the most contentious schisms in all of comics costume design history; yellow and blue Wolverine, or brown and tan Wolverine? Which is the greatest? And to round out today's selection, we have a selection of similarly angry chaps from the DC universe(s); Lobo, Midnighter and Orion.

Sideshow Announces Premium Format Lobo Figure For 2015, The Year Of The Bastitch

Sideshow Collectibles Premium Format Figure

Those of us who grew up in a certain era will always have some kind of connection to Lobo, whether it's the absolute, unquestioning love that comes from being 13 and seeing a super-badass dolphin-loving space-biker throw out fake dirty words while decapitating Santa Claus (spoiler), or the absolute eye-rolling revulsion at the same. But if you fall on the side of adoring Keith Giffen and Roger Silfer's last Czarnian, whose healing factor is so strong that he can regrow from a single drop of blood, who's so rotten that he was kicked out of Hell, then we have some good news.

Next year, Sideshow Collectibles will be releasing a Premium Format version of Lobo, complete with interchangeable heads and accessories, one of which is a flaming skull. Because really, why would it not be a flaming skull?

Designed by Kenneth Rocafort, the distinctly svelte, sinister and maybe even sexy Lobo looks very much like the kind of standard sci-fi character you'd see from Top Cow (where Rocafort made his name), and is a dramatic shift away from the over-the-top '80s biker originally conceived by Keith Giffen and Roger Silfer and visually defined by Simon Bisley. In fitting Lobo fashion, things got ugly, which led to Marguerite Bennett -- who'll be writing the Lobo one-shot -- defending the book and herself before anyone's even had a chance to read it.
