> At the conclusion of RT Holy War, Bizzaro is returned to his home world by Adam Strange and throughout the story he is treated as something of an amusement or possibly even a minor hero for helping the good guys out during the war. Have they forgotten that this is the same character that MURDERED the Human Bomb recently in Infinite Crisis? He didn't just kill him, he beat him to death for pity sake. You would think there would be a superhero lynching party out trying to find this guy or a bounty on his severed head. Instead we have him reduced to a comedy relief sidekick.
The series made a point of demonstrating that Bizzaro was too powerful for them to stop themselves... getting rid of him was the only way they'd be safe themselves. Remember him rampaging through Throneworld early on? At the same time, I don't think anyone could really blame Bizzaro for what happened. He's obviously not dealing with a full deck and has the mind of a child. It's like how the JSA could let the childlike Solomon Grundy live with Jack Knight without hunting him down after he killed Skyman... they saw him as being manipulated by bad companions and incapable of making a true choice in the matter himself.
