I think I'm going to be the only person on the internet to talk about this issue without using "Bizarro language"...

It's important to remember, Bizarros were originally supposed to be "imperfect duplicates" not "exact opposites". And they can't be perfectly consistent in their "oppositeness" anyway, because that wouldn't be imperfect of them! Trying to make everything they say and do exactly opposite just leads to all kinds of insane logic problems... remember the routine on SEINFELD where non-comic fan Elaine asked Jerry to explain how Bizarro Superman was the opposite of Superman ("Does he live underwater? Is he black?").

Morrison keeps this in mind and instead of using the original Bizarro (who does exist in the All-Star continuity, but isn't seen in this story) he introduces creatures that just turn out to look similar. They are micro-organisms that attack by trying to copy and leech away the essence of a host organism, but they can't get it right. So, like cancer cells in the human body, they become destructive.

I wondered why Superman would release a growing-too-big-to-contain Sun-Eater since, well... they EAT SUNS!!!

Allie was apparently the All-Star version of the frumpy looking woman Allie who worked at the Daily Planet in John Byrne's late 1980s stories. Roger Stern later wrote a story that revealed she was homeless and actually lived at the Planet! Odd bit of "casting" to make her a large black woman though. The short black guy was apparently Ron Troupe, whose regular version became Clark's brother-in-law by marrying Lucy Lane a few years back. Memo to Frank Quitely: why do ALL black men have to be drawn with shaved heads? It's getting ridiculous.

Steve Lombard uses Viagra?

Good use of supporting characters but this issue seemed to go by too fast! More soon, please!

I give it an A minus (a real one, not a Bizarro-F plus).

Exactly....they don't do everything backwards, they do it WRONG.

Can't wait for the  "Z"  action figure !

This issue reminded me of a sci-fi version of Shaun of the Dead. And that's a good thing. Smiley

Many people want others to accept their opinions as fact. If enough people accept them as fact then it gives the initial person or persons a feeling of power. This is why people will constantly talk about something they hate—they want others to feel the same way. It matters to them that others perceive things the same way that they do.

 Are you sure it was Viagra? I thought it was steriods! That would be an interesting twist on the original Steve Lombard as a former athelete!

I assumed steroids as well

but then again, would he STILL be taking them, though?

This is Steve Lombard we're talking about, right?

In a world where all men measure themselves up to a god, Superman, Steve would still be doing st'roids and Viagra?  Performance enhancers anyway you cut it unless you're a Bobbit.  Wink

I only thought it was okay, which means the same thing in Bizarro language and human language. I did assume that Superman meant that Lombard was taking a viagra-like substance; after all, he is an insatiable ladies' man and a blowhard.
