Lex Luthor chose to create his own version of Superman through cloning to combat and overcome the original. Luthor decided to crash Sputnik into Metropolis which would bring Superman to the event and hopefully allow Luthor to gather genetic material from Superman. As planned, Superman arrived in time to stop the deadly crash. The United States government claimed the probe and Luthor obtained the samples he needed in order to create his copy which proved to be defective and was named Bizarro.

Luthor sent Bizarro off to engage Superman who was attending a state party which Wonder Woman was also attending. Bizarro clashed with Superman over the English Channel and the two fought. Their battle was so aggressive it accidentally caused an American nuclear missile to launch. Bizarro proved himself to be a true genetic descendant of Superman as he sacrificed himself to save millions from the nuclear explosion.
