World of “Bizarros”

In a world where government policy is greedy, incompetent and deliberately destructive, welcome  to the world of DC Comics' 'Bizarro', embodied by 'mirror image' characters, appearing in comic books, live-action TV series, trading cards, toys and video games:

" 'Bizarro', we strive for that mirror-image, that opposite. And out of a machine which would reveal the negative... 

"...came the mirror image – always remembering that in a mirror everything is reversed.

"What was demanded was the full dimensional personality – a figure that carried a shadow...

"...inspired by C. G. Jung's archetype of  'the shadow'.

"Jung's 'shadow' exists as part of the unconscious mind, composed of repressed ideas, weaknesses, desires, instincts and shortcomings.
