Hey, wait a second! If this is The Creeper...

...then who is the yellow-skinned, green-haired guy with the creepy red shawl and boots in this splash page from September 2011's Justice League International #1...?

I don't want to know.

The previous Creeper from the previous continuity, who escaped the destruction/rebirth of it. When he noticed how horrible this "New" 52 is, he stole a dimensional transporter, and started looking for the less terrible DCU. The one in The Creeper # 1 is the "new" 52-version. But...not...reborn from the originla Creeper, like all the other characters...I guess...
God, it`s also difficult to make FAKE histories about DC-characters now-a-days...

It's the Creeper from the "DC Editorial Has No Effing Clue What They're Doing" dimension.

Maybe the old-new Creeper can hang out with the original Nick Fury from the Ultimates universe.

So much improvisation and clearly lack of editorial in any kind of form whatsoever...

Didn't we also get like 3 reboots of Lobo so far? One kinda-classic at the start of the Nu52, a reimagining by Rob Liefeld (...missing the entire point Lobo was supposed to be a Keith Giffen parody of the whole 80s/90s gritty character trope) on Deathstroke and the current Lobo "in name only"...

Re the Creeper, if it ain't Ditko it ain't worth a fuck.
