The Problem with Bizarro and Bizarro World

#1 Posted by Jonny_Rogers (115 posts) - - Show Bio

I was just thinking about stuff.... and this came across my mind. There is a major problem with the concept of Bizarro and Bizarro World.
 
Bizarro World and all it's inhabitants are designed to be the opposite (or as different as possible) to Earth and all it's inhabitants.  However, paradoxical problems start here:
 
1. Surely if there were such a thing as a so called 'opposite world', then it wouldn't be able to exist. I say this because the world we live in, this world, exists in itself, meaning that for there to be an opposite counterpart to it, it had to not exist. 
 
2. Even if it managed to exist, heroes (or villains) in the Bizarro World seemed to have similar powers to this Earth's counterparts. Surely if these characters were opposite to this world's heroes, then they wouldn't have powers at all or in fact be famous. 
 
3. Contrary to my points above, if you look even further, Bizarro World would just be like this Earth. I say this because this world isn't opposite to itself, as there is nothing for it to be opposite to, meaning that Bizarro World must have something to be opposite to, meaning that it's opposite to itself, which is supposed to be opposite to Earth.This means that Bizarro World must be opposite to it's already opposite (from Earth) world. (Sorry for the bad explanation) 
 
Thanks for reading! Feel free to prove me wrong... somehow. 
 
NOTE: This Topic is intended to be fun; sorry for offending any die-hard Bizarro fans out there.

You're taking the opposite thing too far.
If we live, that doesn't mean they should not live. Because that's not an opposite in powers or way of speaking. Or are you telling us all dead people are bizarros ? There is nothing problematic with Bizarro world ( I really ROFLMAOed reading those issues).

I appreciate feedback, but I was talking about the idea of opposites in general, and used Bizarro as an excuse to talk about it on a comic-based website.
