History: Eduardo and Carlos Lobo were brothers who grew up in poverty in a rural Mexican village. Even as children they stole to feed themselves and their family. When they were very young they stole chickens, and as teenagers they stole sheep. Even as children the two Lobo brothers could move faster than other boys of their age, and could see in the dark better than their friends.

One day, when Eduardo was seventeen, he was climbing over the fence of a cattle ranch to steal a calf when he saw Bonita, a girl of roughly the same age, who was the ranch owners daughter Eduardo's presence frightened the cattle, causing Bonita's horse to be frightened as well, and it throw her off. Eduardo caught Bonita, and they soon fell in love.

One night Bonita's brothers found Eduardo with Bonita, and, infuriated that a lower class boy would become involved with their sister, attacked him with whips. Then, as the full moon rose, Eduardo underwent the transformation into the form of a humanoid wolf for the first time. Seized with bloodlust, Eduardo killed not only Bonita's brothers but Bonita herself. At dawn Eduardo transformed back to human form and was horrified at what he had done to Bonita. As a result both he and Carlos left Mexico, settling in south Texas.

In Texas the two Lobo brothers intervened in a gang war among various Hispanic criminal gangs, and made peace among them. The gangs united, calling themselves Los Hermanos de Is Luna. But soon, the gang leaders all disappeared, and the Lobo brothers headed the organization in their place. The Lobos swiftly built their organization into a powerful and prosperous one. Among other illegal activities, they ran a sophisticated drug smuggling operation. They made their headquarters in a mansion on Grapevine Lake outside Dallas and became the leaders of a notorious and powerful criminal organization.

Learning of the Lobos' plans to move into the New York City territory of Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin of Crime, Fisk's right-hand man, the Arranger, planned to take countermeasures. The Arranger employed a mutant known as Roland Raymond, alias the Persuader, to take mental control of the vigilante known as the Punisher and to compel him to assassinate the Lobo brothers. The costumed crimefighter Spider-Man intervened to prevent the assassination, and the Punisher broke free of the Persuader's control and shot the Persuader.

Seeking vengeance on the Kingpin for this attempt on their lives, the Lobo brothers then came to New York City and initiated a gang war against the Kingpin's organization. While in New York, Eduardo fell in love with Daily Bugle secretary Gloria "Glory" Grant, who learned of his ability to assume lupine form. The Lobo brothers clashed with Spider-Man during their gang war in New York City, and the war eventually led to Eduardo's death at the hand of Gloria Grant, who shot him with a silver bullet from the Arrangers gun. Ironically, Gloria was aiming for Spider-Man. The current whereabouts and activities of Carlos Lobo are unknown, but it is assumed he is plotting revenge against Spider-Man for causing his brother's death.

Weight: 200 lbs.
Eyes: (as human being) Brown, (as werewolf) Red
Hair: (as human being) Black, (as werewolf) Gray

Strength Level: In his normal human form Carlos Lobo possesses the normal human strength of a man of his age, height, and build who engages in intensive regular exercise. In his lupine form Eduardo Lobo possesses superhuman strength, enabling him to lift (press) at least ten tons

Known Superhuman Powers: Carlos Lobo is a mutant with the superhuman ability to transform into a humanoid wolf under a full moon. Like Wolfsbane, Lobo is not a true werewolf, in that his powers derive from mutation and not from supernatural causes. Unlike Wolfsbane, however, Lobo resembles supernatural werewolves in that his transformations to lupine form occur at the rising of the full moon. He reverts to human form at dawn. Also similar to supernatural werewolves, Carlos can only be harmed by weapons composed of silver but as a human being he is open to harm from conventional weapons.

In lupine form Lobo possesses superhuman strength and agility. He also possesses superhumanly acute night vision and superhuman senses of hearing and smell (comparable to those of a wolf) when he is in lupine form. When he is in lupine form, Lobo retains his normal intelligence, although it is dominated by an animalistic bloodlust.

Other Abilities: Even in human form Eduardo Lobo is faster and more agile than most people and can see in the dark better than most people can, but these abilities do not reach superhuman levels unless Lobo is in lupine form.
