Pojo's HeroClix "Click of the Day"
|Bizarro...sing it with me now (to the tune of Volare)
BIZARRRRRRRRRO....actually, goes with the Love Boat Theme Song Too...
Soon he'll be trashing another bank
Think's he real thing, but he's a crank
Just a clone of the big guy...
something like that...if I were more awake, I'd be
Anywho...Whatever version of Bizarro WK is basing this Clix on doesn't
matter. All you need to know is that he's a clone of Superman, created by
Lex Luthor. The Silver-Age Bizarro was a pretty cool cat, he had his own
planet (square shaped), where everything was backwards. Clocks ran
backwards, thieves gave money back to banks, etc. He even had his own
Bizarro family of Lois, Jimmy & Perry White. Those Silver Age stories were
pretty darn cool, if you ask me.
Bizarro looks kind of like Supes, only his skin is chalk white (and usually
flakes off like dandruff). In the post-Crisis DCU the first Bizarro
sacrificed himself so that the original Superman could live and also gave
eyesight to Lois Lane's blind sister (during the Man Of Steel mini-series).
A second clone was created (during the Bizarro World story arc), but
tragically met his end was well. The current Bizarro
was created by the Joker, of all people, when he had Mr. Mxyzptlk's powers.
He wears a big stone pendant proclaiming him "Bizarro No. 1", much like the
Silver Age Bizarro. His powers are opposites of Superman's to an extent, he
still has strength and flight, but instead of heat vision, he has ice
vision, and instead of ice breath he has fire breath. Quick safety tip,
don't bring him to a party! Oh and instead of being weakened by Kryptonite,
he gets stronger! Darn he's so strong he's taking over my review! Oh no,
what will I do?
Now am look at dial stats-thingy's. Bizarro got one range 6 attack to bash
you head in from far away. Me got 10 speed, 10 attack, 16 defense and 4
me gonna kick you butt good. What these color thingy's? Me not know. Here
you write more...
Whew, thanks Bizarro. OK, looking at Bizarro's powers, he gets Charge to
start his speed dial, and Force Blast to finish it. Super-Strength for a few
clicks, Impervious for one, Invulnerability for one and Toughness for almost
the rest of the dial. Midway
through the dial he gets Close Combat Expert for a few clicks as well. A
nice selection of powers for a heavy hitter, AND he has 10 clicks of health.
flying Superman enemy too. The drawback? Well, he's 200 points! Game by
himself? Sure, but he'll probably lose.
"Me Lose? Me never lose. You lose. Me win. Ha ha ha. Me forgot what me
Playing Bizarro can be incredibly fun, if you go with the voices and stuff.
Just think Grimlock from the G1 Transformers series, and you'll get the
Bizarro is a Cosmic Justice Unique ("Damn right me Unique, see meHim
necklace, me number one!") and as such is commanding top dollar currently.
Him selling for...err...sorry...HE sells for between $11.50 and $28.00, but
many of the auctions were selling for less than twenty bucks.
Not much to say about the sculpt, he's basically a grotesque ("Hey watch
it") version of Superman with white skin. They could have put the pendant
on, that would have been a nice touch, but they didn't. Sometimes it's
the little things that make us happy (or unhappy as the case may be).

Next Episode - Negotiator.
Oh sorry...wrong thing.
Next time...the dread, the evil, the crossover, the comic with a piece of
plastic stuck to it, ECLIPSO!
|| When you look at Bizarro's dial you think dang this
guy has a lot of health.
Bizarro's going to be a hard target to take out, 10 clix of health! An ok
defense value, but he has impervious and invulberability for a click, then
toughness for the rest of the dial except on the last click. He has a speed
of 10 for 2 clix with charge for 4 clix. His speed goes back up to 10 in the
middle of his dial and he has force blast on his last 2 clix. His attack
only stays high for 4 clix! On those 4 clix he has super strength and 4 clix
of damage. Right when his attack drops he gains CCE. Bizarro would be a
better figure if his attack didnt drop so fast and his cost is way too much
Bizarro is a unique, level 6 rarity. All buy it nows for Bizarro are above
$20 and you can expect all autions to be about the same price.
Sculpt looks great, I like the colors. He looks scary like he should be. His
pose is like Deathbird, one foot down and he's standing kinda slanted.
||Bizarro- a failed clone of Superman, and a failed click.
For 200 points, I wuld expect more, MUCH more from this guy. His stats are
mocks of Superman's. He gets the same Charge, Super Strentgh, Impervious,
Force Blast, etc of Superman, but it just doesn't stay together to well.Of
course, point values and such are irrelevant in Sealed Box- he fits in quite
