"Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" - Me Am 'Bizarro'?

According to new reports, in addition to 'Doomsday', yet another classic DC Comics' super-villain will play an integral part in director Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice":

DC Comics anti-hero 'Bizarro', a flawed duplicate of 'Superman', will finally make his live-action debut in the new film.

Created by writer Otto Binder and illustrator George Papp, 'Bizarro' was a 'mirror image' of Superman, first appearing in "Superboy" #68 (1958). 

Since then, Bizarro has appeared as an antagonist to Superman.

His origins started with a scientist demonstrating a newly invented 'duplicating ray' to Superboy...

...but an accident causes the ray to duplicate the teen hero, as a flawed imitation with chalky white skin and childlike erratic behavior.

Bizarro is depicted as having all the abilities of Superman...

...although in some incarnations several of these traits have been reversed.

These powers include 'freeze vision' instead of 'heat vision', 'flame breath' instead of 'freeze breath', 'vacuum breath' instead of 'super breath', etc.

A stand-alone "Bizarro" feature film is being developed by writers Dean Parisot and Robert Gordon.
