Big Barda (DC)
Real Name: Barda
Search for 'Big Barda (DC)' on Amazon


Powers:
Great strength and endurance. Wields a mega-rod, which produces extremely powerful concussive bursts.

Bio:
One of the Female Furies, ruthless mercenaries in the employ of Darkseid, 'Big Barda' rebelled against her superiors when she fell in love with Scott Free and helped him escape from the planet Apokolips, later following him to Earth and becoming his wife. She struggled to adapt to Earthly ways of doing things and acted as a peripheral member of the planet's super-hero community for many years until she and Scott moved back to New Genesis, Apokolips' good mirror image.

Recently, Barda was assigned to help the heroes of earth, and specifically the JLA to prepare for confrontation with Mageddon. When this threat was ended, Barda returned to New Genesis, with some regrets at leaving her new friends behind. However, it appears that she and Scott have now moved back to Earth once more, as she has helped Superman and his allies reach Apokolips on more than one occasion in recent months.

Notes:
Created by Jack Kirby.
