Recap: Superman The Animated Series S 1 E9- 10 The Main Man
Superman conducts a test flight of the rocket that brought him to Earth, and Professor Hamilton wonders about the "great achievements" and "brilliant minds" to be found among the stars. Cut to Lobo, capturing a target in a seedy alien bar. His trip to collect the bounty is interrupted when an alien collector hires him to capture a bigger prize — the last Kryptonian.

This episode provides examples of:

  • Angrish: Lobo often lets loose with garbled tirades, apparently as a substitute for the way he (as the DVD commentary puts it) "swears like a sailor" in the comics.
  • Continuity Cameo: Starro is one of the creatures in the Collector's zoo. This is just a throwaway reference at the time, but becomes significant later in the Batman Beyond episode "The Call".
  • Fun with Acronyms: Lobo spelling out his name:
    Lobo: The name's Lobo. That's L as in "lacerate", O as in "obliterate", B as in "disembowel", and O as in, uh... well, I guess I can use "obliterate" twice.
  • Genocide from the Inside / Where I Was Born and Razed: Lobo destroyed his home planet. He calls it his "science project", for which he gave himself an A.
  • Lobo Can Breathe In Space: This episode confirms that the DCAU Superman needs a spacesuit to venture into space. Lobo can live (and talk) in space just fine without one.
  • Tailor-Made Prison: The Collector keeps Superman in a simulated Krypton environment, complete with a red sun lamp that drains his powers.
