It is more than a monster. It is a caricature, a malformed shadow of everything that is Superman. Like all our enemies, the monster is a reminder that our abilities and natures, if not properly guarded, can become weapons to be used against us. Bizarro was created by Lex Luthor, in an attempt to use early cloning technology to find a means to kill Superman. The results were less than perfect. Once fashioned, even Luthor was incapable of controlling Superman's would-be duplicate.
Bizarro can fly like Superman, but lack the compassion that seems the mark the Man of Steel. Instead of heat vision, Bizarro's glare freezes, killing everything in sight. Instead of living like a man, this creature seems to relish its monstrousness.
The creature is not as intelligent as Superman, which only makes him more dangerous. Luthor may have built the engine of destruction he always thought Superman was.
