Big Barda was trained in the orphanage of Granny Goodness, and was taught by
Granny herself. She was the leader of the Female Fury Battalion. During one
rebellion raid, she met a feisty young man named Scott Free. She realized he was
unlike any man she had ever met, and soon discovered something that she had
never known of: she was in love. When Scott Free sought to escape Apokolips to
Earth, Barda, knowing full well she would risk her career and life, helped Scott
escape. Some time later, as her affections for Scott grew, she turned her back
on the only home she ever knew and went to Earth in search of Scott Free. She
found him as an escape artist, under the guise of Mister Miracle. She and Scott
fell even deeper in love, and not long after were married by Scott's estranged
Barda stayed on Earth with Scott and his friend Oberon, and together they
toured across America with his act. They eventually decided to settle down in
the small town of Bailey, New Hampshire, where she put aside her warrior ways
(most of the time) to become a loyal wife. After various disasters from both the
town and Apokolips, they abandoned the town life and moved to Greenwich Village,
New York. Since then, she's bounced back and forth from Earth to New Genesis.
During a battle with the Furies, she was killed; but Scott battled the Black
Racer himself and risked all he had to save his wife, proving that her love for
him was quite appreciated.
Recently was appointed to join the JLA by the new Highfather, Takion. But
she still stays loyal to both her duties as warrior and as a loving wife and
companion to her husband Scott.
Weapon of choice: a Mega-rod, just like Granny's, which draws power from her
own strong will. She is also a very strong woman, with superhuman strength.
