Big Barda

Big Barda is from the planet Apokolips (as is her partner Mister Miracle). In the original storyline, she was trained to be a warrior at the Home for Orphaned Youth, a place she was forced into after being abducted from her mother "Big Breeda."

After later relocating to earth with Mister Miracle, Barda directed a defense program for women in New York City.

Most recent renditions of the character place her (and Mister Miracle) in the Justice League.

The character was created by Jack Kirby.
