Over 250 years ago, Big Barda was born on the planet Apokolips. After being raised in Granny Goodness' Home for Orphaned Youth, Barda was conditioned to become a great warrior. Eventually, she joined the elite Female Fury Battalion. While on a raid, she encountered Scott Free and fell in love with him. She helped him escape Apokolips and later reunited with Free on Earth. The couple proves that opposites attract. Mr. Miracle is a pacifist and prefers to avoid violence while Big Barda is a seasoned warrior and won't hesitate to fight.
Eager for a life of adventure, Barda willingly traveled with Mr. Miracle and Oberon on their tour to showcase the art of escapology. Miracle eventually convinced Barda to settle down with him and retire in Bailey, New Hampshire. Surprisingly, Barda adapted to the role of housewife easily but still participated in various heroics. Despite all her power, she has so far been unable to make her husband clean out the garage. Months later, husband and wife were forced into an army of heroes implanted with Starro clones.
