Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Promo Introduces Its New Mad Scientist


The next chapter of the Dragon Ball Super is set to arrive in theaters in Japan this June, and with the Red Ribbon Army making a comeback, it seems that a new mad scientist is leading the charge in Dr. Hedo. Presumably being responsible for the creation of the new androids set to fight Gohan and Piccolo in Gamma 1 and Gamma 2, there’s still plenty that we have yet to learn about this new villain, but new promotional material for the Shonen film sheds a light on the pint-sized antagonist that has an ax to grind with the Z-Fighters.

In a new promotional advertisement in Weekly Shonen Jump, Dr. Hedo was further explored when it came to his role in the next movie in the Dragon Ball Super franchise:

“He is the root of all evil in the new film?! The true character of the mysterious scientific genius Dr. Hedo is a true super genius!”

On top of this blurb, the advertisement also explores the mad scientist’s allegiances as well as his aesthetic choice:

“After teaming up with the new Red Ribbon Army commander Magenta, the genius scientist Hedo created the new artificial humans “Gamma 1 & 2″! His true ambition is…? What’s interesting is the suit that Hedo wears! He seems to be quite a superhero maniac!”

Twitter Outlet DBS Chronicles shared the new promotional material for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero that arrived in the latest issue of Weekly Shonen Jump as fans around the world wait to see the movie that will finally put Gohan and Piccolo into the driver’s seat as Goku and Vegeta train off-world with Broly, Whis, and Beerus:

While there are more than a few unanswered questions about the Red Ribbon Army’s newest scientist who seems to be taking the reins from the deceased Dr. Gero, fans are wondering if this movie might be a stealth way to finally bring Cell back into the franchise. With the above material featuring a mysterious capsule, perhaps this is the method that the Dragon Ball Z villain will be making his comeback to the series.
