Synopsis

Luthor steals Professor Dalton's duplicating machine and creates an adult Bizarro to menace Superman, but this Bizarro turns on its creator, hands him over to the authorities, and attempts to help Superman. When the people he has helped react in horror to him, Bizarro gets depressed. He misinterprets Lois' sympathy to his plight for true affection and takes her to a remote island. But when she rejects him, he turns the duplicator ray on himself and creates a handsome bizarro duplicate, whom Lois mistakes for the real Superman.

Bizarro keeps the real Superman from revealing to Lois that she has been proposed to by Bizarro's duplicate, whom he calls New Bizarro, with a kryptonite meteorite, but Lois realizes New Bizarro is not the true Man of Steel. But New Bizarro doesn't give up easily, and the duplicates fight each other. Bizarro seeks out Superman's help and destroys the kryptonite, turning it into a dust cloud which destroys New Bizarro. Bizarro resumes courting Lois, until Lois creates a duplicate of herself so that Bizarro can have his own Bizarro-Lois.
