Htrae, better known as Bizarro World, is a world created by the deformed clone of Superman known as Bizarro. After several unsatisfying confrontations with Superman, Bizarro abandoned Earth and forged a new world for himself. Using the Duplicator Ray, Bizarro populated the planet with imperfect duplicates of both himself and Lois Lane. There, they raised a family of Bizarro children, and attempted to eke out an existence for themselves, which proved to be a pastiche of Superman's life back on Earth.
The Bizarros try to live their backwards lives as opposite of Earth as possible: a Bizarro salesman sold Bizarro bonds that were "guaranteed to lose money for you", and the mayor of Mutropolis asks Bizarro to investigate a crime because he is "stupider than the entire Bizarro police force put together", which to him is the greatest praise a Bizarro can receive on Bizarro World .
The Bizarro World is populated with Bizarro versions of Superman's friends and co-workers, such as Bizarro Perry White and Bizarro Jimmy Olsen. Bizarro World also has its own version of the Justice League, known as the Bizarro Justice League.
