The six types of genomorph displayed on Robin's computer.

Genomorphs are genetically-engineered lifeforms created by Project Cadmus. Cadmus created six types of genomorph apparently from scratch. Superboy and Match were created as clones of Superman; they are also genomorphs.

Production notes

In Kirby's original DNA Project stories (the origin of Cadmus) Guardian is a clone of the original Jim Harper who was killed in action—a creation of "The Project". There is a reference to this during "Fireworks" when Dubbilex refers to Guardian as "brother", a term he usually reserves for other genomorphs. Also in Kirby's original story all genomorphs (or DNAliens as they were then known) are genetically altered human clones.


All Genomorph sub-species (except for the Kryptonian clones) are named after mythical creatures. Dwarves, elves, goblins, gnomes, sprites and trolls all appear in Germanic myths and the Western fairy tales based on them.
