Synopsis for "The Lobo Paramilitary Christmas Special"Edit
- Synopsis not yet written.
- The cover to this issue contains two disclaimers. The first is located in the top left hand corner and reads, "Seriously suggested for mature readers". The second is on the bottom right hand corner and reads, "WARNING: Contains Bad Taste In The Form Of Ultra-Violence, Icon-Bashing, And "The Finger." More Offensive Than Christmas Usually Is. [sic]
- The canon of this issue is undetermined, even though Lobo has since made references to his battle with Santa Claus. The demeanor and apparent demise of Santa Claus is also cause for speculation, as he has never before or since been portrayed in such an unfavorable. Due to Santa's legendary iconic status, it is reasonable to assume that he survived his apparent beheading in this issue.
- The end of the issue includes a rendition of the holiday song "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer". The revised lyrics are:
- Rudolph the Mutant Reindeer
- Was very aptly named
- He had a fraggin' monstrous schnozzle
- Of which he was ashamed
- Then one starry xmas night,
- Lobo came to say --
- "Rudolph lead my sleigh tonight --
- Or I'll blow you away!"
Followed by Rudolph pleading: "No! Never! You're Naughty! Much too naughty!" followed by a gunshot and a loud thud.
- This storyline was adapted into a short film by Scott Leberecht in 2002, with a budget of $2,400, as part of the American Film Institute's director's studies program. Andrew Bryniarski (who also had a role in another DC Comics film, Batman Returns) stars as Lobo, with Tom Gibis as the Easter Bunny and Michael V. Allen as Santa Claus.
