Origin

Reared by Granny Goodness to be a warrior, Barda quickly earned command of the Female Fury Battalion.


Barda meet the escape artist Scott Free (Mr. Miracle) while training in Darkseid's elite Special Powers Force. Befriending Free, she assisted him in escaping to Earth, where she would join him after rebelling against Darkseid's desires to invade New Genesis.


Challenging the minions of Darkseid that pursued them to Earth, the two built an inseparable bond. They would both join the heroes of Earth in challenging the forces of Apokolips as Mr. Miracle and Big Barda.
