Bizarro (AKA The Bizarro Superman), is a super-villain in the DC Universe and an "imperfect" clone of the superhero Superman.  Though there have been many incarnations of the character, most of them are either harmless or, at least, not intentionally malicious due to his warped mind and skewed worldview.


Created as an attempt to clone Superman, Bizarro was somehow made wrong and thinks and behaves in backwards logic.



The first Bizarros (though not called that at the time) were created by the General Dru-Zod (more well known as General Zod) of the planet Krypton, who created imperfect clones of himself to dominate the planet.  These duplicates of Zod were ready to fight and kill as his behest but were eventually defeated.

12 years later, by complete coincidence, a brilliant scientist named Professor Dalton created a duplication machine nearly identical to the technology used by Zod on Krypton.  The plans were found by Lex Luthor, a master criminal and enemy of Superman, who built it with the plan to create a copy of Superman under his complete control.
