Scott Free is the son of Izaya the Highfather of New Genesis, and in a pact
between the warring worlds of New Genesis and Apokolips, he was traded to
Darkseid, the ruler of Apokolips, in exchange for his son Orion. Scott was
thrown into the orphanage of Granny Goodness, who was, sadly enough, the only
parent he ever really had. She put him through hell, just like all her other
"children," to the point where he could stand no more. He often caused terouble
and rebelled against his captors and trainers. In one rebellion, he met Big
Barda, the leader of the Female Furies. He was able to escape her fury, but in
fact he had impressed her, and over time she began to have feelings for him.
With the help of various parties (his mentor Himon, Metron, Barda and even his
father Izaya on New Genesis), he escaped Apokolips to Earth. There, he met an
escape artist named Thaddeus Brown and his friend Oberon. Brown was soon killed
by the criminal Steel Hand, and Scott avenged his new friend's death by taking
on the identity of Thaddeus Brown's stage act and brought Steel Hand to justice.
Mister Miracle was born.
Free...told them [Darkseid and pals] 'Let me alone and let me find out who
I really am' And eventually that's what we all do."- "The King,"
Eventually, Big Barda found Scott on Earth, and they were happily reunited.
The two fell deeply in love, and some time later, were marries by Highfather
himself. The two of them, as well as Oberon, travelled America with their act,
and battled the various threats from both Earth and Apokolips as well.
Mr. Miracle, aiding the super-heroes of Earth, joined the newly-reformed
Justice League of America. But he and Barda still lived together, finding a
secluded home in Bailey, New Hampshire to retreat to. In a battle with the
reborn Despero, Scott was apparently killed, causing his friends Orion and
Lightray to join the Justice League in his memory. But Scott was not dead at
all; he had been transported onto the spacecraft of Manga Khan, an occassional
foe of the JLA who once captured him to sell to Granny Goodness. After some
time, Khan returned Scott to Earth, much to the relief of his wife and friends.
His days with the Justice League behind him, he left the super-hero business for
a time, mving from New Hampshire to Greenwich Village, New York. Not long after,
he returned to New Genesis with Barda and Highfather.
Since then, Scott has bounced back and forth from Earth to New Genesis and
back. Although their marriage has had its rough times here and there, Scott and
Barda stick together. When Barda was killed by the Furies, Scott battled the
Black Racer to get her back, and he did. And when it came time for Scott to take
the rank of Highfather after Izaya's death, he turned down the position and
abandoned his godpowers for a more solitude life with his wife on Earth. He
still performs the occassional carnival acts as Mr. Miracle: Escape Artist, and
he still frequents New Genesis, but his super-hero days have taken a backseat as
Whatever super-powers he had are gone, after he had the wizard Shazam take
them away. He has always relied on technological gadgets, concealed within his
costume, and his quick wits. He transports himself with aero-discs, which he
obtained in his days on Apokolips. And most of all, like all the New Gods, he is
always equipped with his trusty Mother Box.
