"Transformers" director Michael Bay has shown 'some interest' in directing a live-action feature, adapting DC Comics' comedic, super-powered, inter-stellar mercenary character "Lobo", with a screenplay based on the "Lobo" 1990's comic book run by Keith Giffen and Alan Grant :
Created by Roger Slifer and Keith Giffen, the alien Lobo first appeared in DC Comics' "Omega Men" #3 (June 1983), working as a bounty hunter.
"I have no idea why 'Lobo' took off," co-creator Giffen said. "I came up with him as an indictment of the 'Punisher', 'Wolverine', hero prototype and somehow he caught on as a poster boy..."
Initially introduced as a villain, the character evolved into an anti-hero biker and over-the-top parody of various superheroes.
Lobo has extraordinary strength of undefined limits, possessing superhuman durability, able to survive unprotected in deep space and withstand powerful explosive blasts without sustaining injury. An accelerated healing factor enables him to regenerate with efficiency and little pain, as he is functionally immortal, immune to the effects of aging.
