 This am Bizarro page
Together with Bizarro-Lois, Bizarro rules the far-distant planet Htrae, a wacky, cockeyed world where all the men are imperfect imitations of Superman and all the women are distorted doubles of Lois Lane.
Indeed, although the name Bizarro is used as a proper noun, designating Bizarro himself, it is also employed in the texts as a general term to designate any Bizarro creature.
Bizarro, however, thinks of himself somewhat more generously, as the "most famous monster in history," the all-time "champion monster," the "most famous monster of all," and the "scariest monster" of all time.

 Don Markstein's Toonopedia: Bizarro
Bizarro (who took his name from hearing the word "bizarre" applied to him) had all of Superboy's wonderful powers, but no real spark of life — a fact he was just bright enough to understand.
Bizarro made a hit with readers, and was brought back as a recurring character, using the same duplicating device — but he got funnier with each new appearance.
Before long, it was populated with Bizarros of all of Superman's friends, as well as every single member of The Justice League of America, and a fair number of bad guys, as well as endless repetitions of Bizarro-Superman and Bizarro-Lois.

Brought into being by an ingenious duplicator ray built by Lex Luthor, the renegade scientist who is Superman's bitterest enemy, Bizarro is only lifeless matter in human form—a thing composed of unliving matter.
Bizarro can also think and feel and engage in reproduction: his mate, Bizarro-Lois, gives birth to a baby boy Bizarro in October 1960 (Superman No. 140) and by February 1961 the couple have acquired a daughter.
All Bizarros are imperfect duplicates of other living things; all are illiterate and ungramatical; and all share the grotesque physical characteristics—including the chalk-white, faceted faces—peculiar to Bizarros.

On the subject of sculpt and articulation, there are no sculptural differences between Bizarro #1 and Bizarro, and they have the same articulation — ankles, knees, thighs, hinge-hips on a T-crotch, waist, hinge torso, balljoint shoulders, biceps, elbows, wrists and balljointed head.
Bizarro has a very large chest and is all over just more rotund, defined and vein-y that his un-bizarre counterpart.
Bizarro and Superman share the same sculpt from their feet all the way up to their mid-torso joint.

These "Bizarro" anthologies unleash a legion of writers and cartoonists not usually associated with superhero comics and let them play in the DC Universe, unrestrained and unconcerned by continuity or the usual tropes and expectations of the superhero genre, with an emphasis on humor.

The writers and cartoonists contributing to Bizarro World do not subsume their styles to the demands of the DC Universe; rather, they let their idiosyncrasies collide with their subject matter.
