IF: backwards

The challenge this week on illustrationfriday.com is “backwards“.
me talk pretty one day
Bizarro is an enemy, of sorts, of Superman. He made his comic book debut in 1958 in Superboy #68. The original Bizarro was created when Superman was exposed to a “duplicate ray.” Bizarro lived in “the Bizarro World,” a cubical planet called Htrae (Earth spelled backwards) which operated under “Bizarro logic” (it was a crime to do anything good or right). He had gray or chalk-white skin and a twisted sense of logic which typically manifested as a superficial “opposite” of anything Superman would do or say and a resultant speech pattern (“Me am going to kill you” would mean “I will save you” in Bizarro speech). Bizarro has appeared in Superman comics for years and even showed up in teen-angst-come-superhero show “Smallville“.
Not to be confused with this guy.
