A post has been traveling around Tumblr where Big Barda is mistaken for Wonder Woman. I thought I’d take the opportunity to help correct that mistake, and introduce the baddest bitch from Apokolips.

Taken from her mother at a young age, Barda was trained by Granny Goodness to serve the evil lord Darkseid. She becomes leader of the Female Fury Battalion, a ferocious pack of women warriors. During a raid, she meets Scott Free, and discovers the problematic nature of her upbringing. Turning her back on the abusive Darkseid and Granny, she joins a rebel cell and risks her life to enable Scott’s escape to Earth. After some time the two are reunited, decide to get hitched, and  become a kick-ass crime fighting couple. After a few years of working, they retire to New Hampshire and attempt to live a normal life. When this plan fails terribly, they move to Greenwich Village, NY where Barda forms a defense-training program for women called the New Female Furies. The two still occasionally help out with JL missions.

Barda is a proud homekeeper and wife. One of the deadliest hand-to-hand combatants alive, she has fought Wonder Woman to a draw. Energy bolts from her megarod are strong enough to concuss Superman, and her heart is such that she never turns down a friend in need. 7 feet tall, fast as a whip, and she loves Pokemon Cards.  Does it really get better than that?
