Superman and Supergirl return baby Bizarro Jr. to his rightful parents Bizarro and Bizarro Lois Lane and all is well. As they make their way back to Earth, they abruptly stumble upon Bizarro Supergirl's dead body.

Bizarrogirl looks like the opposite of Supergirl as well, her face generally being grey or chalky white, features often angular, and hair often disheveled. Bizarrogirl's costume is also a variation on Superman's as the S on his chest will be backwards as if in a mirror, and as of recently her costume is more reminiscent of the "Silver Age" version of Supergirl's. Yet it's much more tattered and dingy in comparison to it's vibrant colorful counterpart.
Powers and Abilities
Despite being able to match Supergirl's strength punch for punch, the rest of Bizarrogirl's superpowers are, in other respects, the complete opposite of Supergirl's. Instead of heat vision, Bizarrogirls's red-irised, black-tinged eyes emit freezing beams of ice and her x-ray vision doesn't really see through anything, but it instead solidifies it. And where Supergirl can compress her breath into concentrated gusts of cold air, Bizarrogirl belches forth gouts of flame.
Bizarro's are known for their very distinct way of speaking. The logic of their speech is typically inverted both grammatically as well as in word selection. First, Verbs and adjectives are backwards. When a Bizarro says the word "perfect" he almost invariably means "imperfect". "Slow" would actually mean "fast" or "quick", the meanings of "help"/"save" and "harm"/"kill" would be reversed, and so forth. Their known for using the wrong pronoun as the subject of a verb. Rather than saying "I hate you" a Bizarro would say "Me like you". Also, Bizarro's uses only the first person conjugation of his verbs. Rather than saying "I am great" they might say "Me is terrible". Bizarro's also doesn't typically use contractions to negate verbs, and instead uses no before the verb. An example of this would be saying "Me no" rather than "I don't".
Because the nature of the various grammatical errors that make up the modern Bizarro's speech, and the unpredictable nature of which these errors will occur together, a Bizarro's speech patterns are often difficult to follow, particularly when they're trying to expressing more than one thought at a time.
