The LEGO features just keep on coming. In LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League vs. Bizarro League, Superman meets up with Bizarro. Now I never really understood who Bizarro was before when I saw him on Superman the Animated Series. It turns out that he’s a clone that thinks backwards.

In this version he’s not such a bad guy. Since Bizarro is so backwards, he ends up harming the citizens of Metropolis when he means to help them. As a solution, Superman sends Bizarro to a backward planet that’s uninhabited. However, Superman was creative by naming the planet Bizarro World and using the many radioactive rocks to build citizens and left Bizarro to build homes for them.

Next we get to a more exciting scene. The Justice League battles Giganta, Gorilla Grodd, the Penguin, Deathstroke, and Captain Cold. As great as it is to see these characters, they don’t return once they’re caught and I find that a bit disappointing.

Of course the real focus is on Bizarro when he returns to Metropolis and creates clones from Justice League members Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and Cyborg. They are just as backwards as Bizarro and go by the names Batzarro, Bizarra, Greenzarro, and Cyzarro.

It turns out that there’s trouble in Bizarro World, so the Justice League and their clones go there and discover that Darkseid is stealing the radioactive rocks to power a weapon to take over the galaxy.

I met Tony Todd, the voice of Darkseid, at Vulcan Events 2010.

When the Justice League arrives, their powers are affected. Wonder Woman is clumsy, Cyborg falls apart, Batman’s gadgets don’t work, and Green Lantern can only make chickens. At least it’s better than Greenzarro’s teddy bears.

Oddly, Superman isn’t affected and frankly neither is Darkseid. Could it be because they’re not Earthlings?
Darkseid’s first stop is Earth. Luckily, it’s protected by other Justice League members like Hawkman, the Flash, Green Arrow, and Plastic Man. It’s nice to see these characters also.

This was an interesting LEGO feature, but like in the previous one (Lego Batman: The Movie – DC Super heroes Unite) Batman doesn’t trust Superman. It’s so annoying how the issue just drags on while hearing Batman’s thoughts throughout.
