It's been a while since we last saw Lobo on screen but every time his presence is made known, fans know that they're in for a wild ride.
As strong as Superman (or even stronger in some versions), they say that this bounty hunter in the DC Universe truly can't be killed and can even survive in the vacuum of space. He hails from the planet Czarnia and the specialty of their species is that they can only be killed by another Czarnian. But not Lobo, he's on another God-like level (total fanboy here).
Lobo is voiced by veteran voice actor John DiMaggio on 'Young Justice: Outsiders' and there's no one who could play the part better. He was sent to kill Forager and his relentlessness as a bounty hunter has made him known throughout the whole DC Universe.
But with Halo's new powers, we find that she was easily able to cut off one of Lobo's little fingers, something even Superman couldn't do, thereby showing that Halo will definitely be a formidable opponent to The Light (who are still unaware of her powers). And these are just some of her basic powers, who knows what's in store for her down the line.
Queen Bee makes her presence felt in a meeting which The Light attended, but with her power to persuade any man to do her bidding, and with The Light being 90% male, it won't be surprising if she's the one pulling the strings behind this whole operation.
We also get to finally see Barry Allen (Flash) and Iris's twin children during a playdate between the superfamilies. They go by the names of Dawn and Don (like that won't be confusing), and they're known later in the DC Universe as the Tornado Twins who've inherited Barry's superspeed. So you can definitely expect a whole mess of chaos in their household.
Fun Fact: Don Allen is Bart Allen's future dad, even though he's only a baby in this episode.
We also find out that the maker of Goode Goggles is none other than Granny Goodness, a New God of Apokolips and the servant of Darkseid. We find that she's working with Bruce Wayne (Batman) on several charities for meta-humans, with Bruce being completely oblivious to who she is.
Back at the superfamilies home, a familiar figure by the name of Orm who was planning the mass murder of our favorite superheroes is killed by Lady Shiva who sees his bloodlust and revenge on the family as detrimental to the purpose of The Light, thereby taking his place in the council.
We have to say that Forager is slowly becoming one of the most lovable characters in the series. With his simple-minded naivety and silly questions of all the Earthling's means and ways, Forager has not only won us over but has also won the praise of fans worldwide!
