I got the Lobo SDCC-exclusive DCUC action figure but needed a sidekick that he could literally kick-around, hehe. Jonas Glim easily comes to mind - he was with Lobo even way back from issue # 1.

A bit of background on who he is, from Wikipedia:

"Jonas Glim is a fictional character, a tusked, alien bounty hunter from Lobo comics. His first appearance is in Lobo #1 (Dec 1993). He was created by Alan Grant and Val Semeiks.

Jonas meets up with Lobo, as they both work for the same bounty hunter agency for a while. Their early adventures are marred with mistrust. During a search and retrieval of a Mafia accountant, Jonas doesn't want to turn his back on Lobo after the 'fiasco on Bwayne's Word'[1]. The accountant, Vernon Z. Quigly becomes involved with Mort Fatale and the Dead Boys. This results in multiple battles between both sides. Eventually Lobo and Vernon take off in issue #3. Glim believes that Lobo has betrayed him again, leaving him to mafia soldiers. He survives this and later reestablishes a friendship with Lobo.

Together they torment and beat the often-confused hero Goldstar; at one point they take advantage of his mental illness and turn him into a virtual slave. Around this time, Jonas suffers the loss of most of his left chin-tusk.

At some point, when he is on friendly terms, Jonas Glim assists when Lobo finds a pleasing lead[3]. It concerns a gang leader, the only man who has ever beaten Lobo in a fight. The criminal had hidden from Lobo in the time stream using a time-traveling bike. Lobo jumps through the time stream to alter the fight so he wins. This has the effect of changing Jonas into a frog-like creature. This set of circumstances does not last."

RECIPE:

Marv from LCBH - head, body, everything - sculpted the head
Gun is from Smart Hulk, belt, holster accessories from ML figures'

NEXT UP: Lobo's bike! (and it's not going to be made out of cardboard, ya bastich!)
