Bio:
Broli was exiled to the harsh frontier planetoid known as Vampa in AGE 734 due to King Vegeta's jealousy that Broli's power surpassed that of his own son. His father Paragus attempted to rescue him shortly after his departure. However, Paragus' impatience lead to a crash landing that left them stranded there for the next 46 years...

In AGE 780, following the Tournament of Power and Freeza's subsequent resurrection, the tyrant returned to his evil ways and would proceed to begin the process of (attempting) to restore his organization to its former glory. The Planet Sharking soldiers are offered a monetary incentive as a reward for every new recruit. The ragtag duo, Cheelye and Lemo, happen to pick up a distress signal as they pass by Vampa. The two land and quickly locate Paragus and Broli. Paragus is eager to be rescued, and delivering such a promising recruit like Broli to Freeza is sure to net them a huge reward. Freeza is both surprised and annoyed to learn even more Saiyans survived his destruction of Planet Vegeta. When questioned about Broli's missing tail, Paragus reveals that his son wasn't able to control himself after transforming. It was simply too dangerous to leave it in tact, so he removed it. This piques Freeza's curiosity, who presses further about Broli's control issues. Paragus reluctantly explains that Broli can rarely lose control of himself, as evident from the scare upon his aged body. He constructed the shock collar out of parts from their damaged ships to help render him submissive during those episodes.

Freeza proceeds to tell Paragus about the demise of Planet Vegeta, which Lemo had already filled him in on during the trip. He's sorely disappointed that his dream of revenge against the king was stolen from him. The manipulative tyrant smiles as he bestows the good news. The Saiyan Prince survived as well. Paragus is delighted. Freeza explains that the prince and another Saiyan named Gokū are currently living on a frontier planet called Earth. Freeza is happy to help him get his revenge against the royal family, so long as they leave Son Gokū's final execution for him. Paragus has no issue with that request. Freeza muses to himself that he's happened upon another chance for revenge, and he won't even have to get his hands dirty this time...!

Notes:
For a long time, I really disliked the (old) Broli. Partially because of his character, partially because of his fans, and partially because of his transformation. Specifically the "Legendary Super Saiyan" form, or at least the name. It really served no purpose other than to confuse fans by suggesting that the original golden/blonde/yellow Super Saiyan transformation Toriyama created for Gokū wasn't the one the legend was based upon. Which is ridiculous, since everything Toriyama has said before and after states the opposite.

However, with the introduction of Kale in a Universe where the Saiyans had no legend to begin with and Toriyama himself tackling his (newer, and better) version of Broli in the 20th movie, the form can be reevaluated for what it is without the stigma of the name. There are quite a few inconsistencies between old Broli, new Broli, anime Kale and manga Kale's various transformations. It's a bit of a mess and I'm going to attempt to try and sort it all out for my future material.

Also, for the record, names under the "Showcased Transformations" section are potentially tentative. Promotional material for new Broli coins his iconic form as "Super Saiyan (Full Power)", while Kale is labeled with "Super Saiyan (Berserk)". For the time being, I'm just going to stick with my "Berserk Super Saiyan" name for the form until something official (maybe) tries to clear all this up. 

PS. Some years for events have been altered from the film's information to better fit with the project.

I can't find the version of this image where Broly has the standing hair in his smaller Enraged form and Legendary Super Saiyan with non-tattered pants and a smirk.

Is that how tall Broly is compared to Goku? 6'9"? I've actually been trying to figure that out along with Frieza. I'd assume that the Universal Emperor is about 5 feet tall or 4.

I dont know if Broly is in SSJ form or he is in legendary super saiyan,cause his literally almost gigantic and his freaking eyes and pupils are gone because they exploded when Broly transforms.

It's just Super Saiyan. He's buff because he transforms while in his Enraged/Ozaru state.

Very nice rendering of Broly in his new duds with your own style.  I like the temporary names you have given his various forms/states.  Also, providing illustrations that display changes in Broly's size while (kinda) still in his base form gives me a better understanding of how his power is so unique (let me know if I'm wrong in my critique of this piece).  I look forward to seeing how you will handle Broly based on how Toriyama is readdressing him in the upcoming movie.  As usual, keep up the good work!

This Broly is not evil which is interesting and his backstory is far better then his old one

I Love this! Also are you going to do the same thing you did for Broly for Gogeta? Where your going to change the the look of character and get rid of the old designs. 

Also if they ever do this again, where they bring back an old movie character and remake him like they did for Broly, which character do want them to bring back and second are you going to do a bunch of back flips to try and add them into the main continuity because honestly if it were me I would just say the old (Z Broly) was from an alternate time line and leave it at that.

It's nice to see you post on Deviantart again, I'm personally really interested in how you're gonna handle T.O.P Vegeta since i know from some of your comments that you don't plan on doing SSBE. So i'm curious if you're gonna give Vegeta something else or just leave him with Super Saiyan Blue.

The new Broly is much better then the old Broly, he is nothing but a prick who doesn't have a reason to destroy a planet as he does it for fun, his personality is so boring and his motivation to kill Goku is just horrible, at the new Broly is a better character then his old counterpart, i never like the old Broly so much

If Broli is harnessing his Ozaru power in base form, would that stack with super saiyan and his berserk form?

I would assume that's the intention even in the official material, seeing how his SS form is huge like his previous enraged state. If it wasn't, he should presumably shrink back down to normal base size...? No idea about the green hair form though, since that increases his size even further. Might just be what that transformation does, regardless of everything before it.

That's one theory to explain the nature of his (and Kale's) green haired version of Super Saiyan. As far as I know, it isn't addressed in the movie, but maybe we'll see in the future if that's the case
