Am I a lion? I don't think of myself as a lion. You might as well though, I have a mighty roar. LIONIZE ME!

Lion is an OK support. SD/Lina/KotL/Nyx/Rubick are outright better than he is, and all of those/WD/Veno/CM/SS/Bane are all better dual-tri-laners.

Lion's appearance is a matter of pride to him. You can bet that hair is a beast to straighten, though.
There are more puns in the large cat lexicon than 'lion', people!

Ugly characters that everybody want to pick:
Golden Axe : The dwarf.

Also, I've been waiting for this ever since the 500'th comic. Jo, you hear me, Jo?

Lion is so ugly that he is awesome again. I like him actually, although he looks a bit like he is going to waylay little kids in the dark.

See these last couple of MOBA comics have been fine! The joke requires literally ZERO knowledge of the games to understand. The last one was about online gambling, which could have been in any game. And today's is about expectations, which is a 100% visual thing and completely represented here.

[url=#user_comment_278431]@Ninj77[/url] I can't remember what happened to the 1st 3. Did they never exist, or were they redacted for quality reasons, counting bug...?

So people dislike Lions Model but don't care about Medusa?... It's half bad if they make a ugly looking hero into an even uglier looking hero, but making Gorgon the pretty much opposite of the fapping material people are used to in online games made my heart hurt :(

Lion still needs a new model. Vengeful Spirit already got one, so it's time for Lion to get a new look that isn't terrible.

He always looked like an Orc warlock so his name never made sense. Probably some dumb reference

That said the Dota 2 model looks uglier than any Orc I've seen

Well, finally tonite we will know the answer: will Jo honor his promise and deliver full fan-service for the 1000th strip as promised?

Or will he choose the easy and cheap escape and troll his fans?

Just a few more hours pals! Make your bets!

To all the ones asking for fanservice:

Y'know, Jo already posted something new in Paheal some time ago...unless you've already seen it and want something new.
RVN

you do realize Jo won't stop the dota comics until he has portrayed every hero, right?

OMG This is Satan's strip!!! You see, if you take 999 and turn it around, it's 666!!! That's why we have Lion the demon bitch himself in the comic.

Back in DotA, Lion carries a shield, which depending on your team colour could carry a lion symbol.
Not even trolling.

You know if I was Jo I'd totally troll you with a naked 'Lion' for the 1000th strip and call that fanservice.

For all the bitching.

1-2 days later I'd replace that picture with the real one just to troll some more.

Lion was once a proud defender of good. But it was tempted and betrayed by the forces of demonic witchcraft. Lion is now the only living practitioner of this ancient discipline and intended to remain so.

"When the demon betrayed me, I took its very arm. Imagine what I'll do to a mere hero."

What's that you say? "Lion's got a face only a Broodmother could love?" "Lion's so ugly he has to tie a pork chop to his face to get Ursa to play with him?" "Lion's so ugly he turned Medusa to stone?"

Strange, because all I heard was: "Please turn me inside out."

My mistake.
Frelus

[url=#user_comment_278169]@Faelivri[/url]: He got that face body when he took the hand off a demon in hell and grafted it on his own body, corrupting him in the process. So, I kind of think that it is his fault ;)

Well, he's Oglodi and he back from hell (literally), so that's not his fault he have face like this, right? Check his old model if you think this is ugly.

He was a "lion" on dota 1, and they don't want to call him "demon witch", who fits better.

@N.L.: I don't mind ugly. I like Bane and even Medusa, but Lion is a different kind of ugly.

Looking at dota allstar. Lion was dubbed the demon witch and used a fell orc warlock model. Guess it's just a coincidence he's called lion and dota2 lion just mirrors that. Kinda disappointing, but it's just that.

No idea about his name but his appearance is totally understandable from his biography "he followed the demon back to hell and slew it taking its demonic hand for his own. Lion was transfigured by the process, his body transformed into something unrecognizable". Not all heroes should be pretty
