|DC/Marvel: Age of Infinite Heroes|
Barda Free is a tall, statuesque brunette that looks as if she could destroy anyone in her way. She probably could. She's happily married to Scott Free.
Barda was born of the race of New Gods about 250 years ago, on Apokolips. She is a product of Granny Goodness' Home for Orphaned Youth. Granny's motto is "Die for Darkseid" (the planet's evil ruler). Granny grooms Barda to one day lead the Female Fury Battalion, a ferocious pack of women warriors. However, during a raid Barda meets Scott Free, Darkseid's adopted son, and, sensing a peace about him, falls in love.
Barda risks her own safety to help Scott escape from Apokolips. Eventually, Barda turns her back on Granny, and comes to Earth herself. Scott has become an escape artist called Mister Miracle, and is teamed with Oberon, his diminutive manager. Scott and Barda are married by Scott's father, the Highfather of New Genesis.
After living awhile on New Genesis, the married couple returned to Earth. It was there that Barda and Scott became members of the JLA, and Barda also a member of the Birds of Prey. Scott's constant near death antics worried Barda to the point that it put a strain on their relationship after several years. They returned to New Genesis to work on it together.
Finally, bored again, the two have returned to their second home of Earth. Unfortunately while they were gone they racked up quite a bit of debt in back taxes on their property, which had fallen into disrepair as well. Barda knows Scott plans to perform again to make up the money, but she worries his old habits will start once again.
Aloof - The status she was raised to hold in her home of Apokalips put her in the ranks of the elite. Though she is no longer among their number, her attitude often comes off as aloof, and distant, in spite of her attempts otherwise. She doesn't make friends easily, so when she does, they are for life.
Fierce - Every hardship in life she has faced has simply been another challenge to overcome. When she sees weakness in another she deals with it immediately in the only way she knows how: By knocking it down. Either they'll stand back up and be stronger for it, or they'll prove not worth her time.
Dedicated - This is both for those she cares for, and for any current challenge she has set herself to completing. Once her mind or heart are set, she does not waver from her chosen course of action.
