Criminal mastermind Lex Luthor once acquired the designs for a Duplicator Ray first envisioned by a scientist named Professor Dalton. Modifying the device, Luthor intended on using it to create a super-strong clone of his nemesis, Superman; a mindless slave who would obey Luthor's every command. However, the duplication process failed, and resulted in the creation of an imperfect duplicate of Superman. This artificial being, later began to refer to itself as Bizarro.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
- Bizarro Physiology: Bizarro's skin is a multi-faceted crystalline compound that slightly resembles crumbled chalk.
Bizarro No. 1 possesses a strength level equitable to that of Superman.
- Vulnerability to Blue Kryptonite: All Bizarros are susceptible to the effects of Blue Kryptonite. An imperfect duplicate of Green Kryptonite, Blue Kryptonite robs a Bizarro of its superhuman talents. Prolonged exposure to Blue Kryptonite will ultimately prove fatal to a Bizarro.
- This version of Bizarro (Earth-One), including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the Multiverse in the 1985-86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series and is now considered apocryphal.
- Although Bizarro No. 1 is the most famous of all related characters, he is not in fact the first Bizarro. In October of 1968, writer Otto Binder introduced a Bizarro character who functioned as an imperfect duplicate of the Earth-One Superboy. This bizarro was the product of a scientist named Professor Dalton and was destroyed after making only one appearance.
- In Grant Morrison's Animal Man "Deus Ex Machina" storyline, Psycho-Pirate, while in Arkham Asylum, recreated characters removed from continuity, exposing the fourth wall to the protagonist. This version of Bizarro was one of them. Bizarro appears as he originally did in Pre-Crisis Superman comics. He obviously disappears when everything returned to normal.
- Bizarro's physical statistics are based upon that of the Earth-One Superman.
- Although Bizarro No. 1 seemingly died in Superman (Volume 1) #423, this tale is regarded as an imaginary story and does not take place within established Earth-One continuity. The final fate of Bizarro has yet to be revealed.
