 Barda Free / Big Barda

Origin

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 FreeDarkseid'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.

Barda and Scott reside in the suburbs of Connecticut and are active adventurers. Barda never hesitates to lend a hand to her friends when her power and expertise are needed.

Skills and Abilities

The beings of New Genesis call themselves Gods and live outside of normal time and space in a realm called the Fourth World. These New Gods have evolved due to their close proximity to the Source, a primeval energy, believed to be one of the ultimate foundations of the Universal Expression of Energy, along with their superior technology, into beings of genetic stability and evolutionary perfection. The denizens of New Genesis are immortal, stronger, faster, and smarter than homo sapiens, despite their resemblance to the same. Barda is also skilled in hand-to-hand combat and is physically stronger than many of the other New Gods, including her husband Scott. Her weapon of choice is the Mega Rod, an Apokoliptian weapon that can shoot blasts of energy and can be used to open up portals used for travel called Boom Tubes. (x)

I really must find out if there is any basis for a woman to once tell me that the 1980 Pride and Prejudice is in every way better than the 95 version, which she couldn’t stand. Heresy. 

Personally, I wouldn’t trust the opinion of anyone who couldn’t stand the ‘95 version. Liking another version better? Sure, okay. But actually hating the Jennifer Ehle/Colin Firth version? *shakes head disapprovingly* No taste, clearly. ;-)

There is a real actual Spiderman comic where he pretends this is his power and the bad guys drop their weapons and give up. XD And it makes me happy. 

Here it is:


No one can ever say spiderman is not the best superhero of all time.

"You’ve escaped, and you think the world’s a huge place, and you can hide anywhere, right? I’m here to tell you… that world? I own it. Your world is getting smaller by the second. And you can’t hide anywhere from me. Every database, every security cam, and every police band has my fingerprints on it. Every moment you’re out the noose pulls tighter. And Savant, just in case it’s not crystal clear by now… Nobody messes with my partner.”

I can’t even explain how much I love Miles okay

You tell ME.
No, YOU tell ME.
NO, YOU TELL ME!!!!!!!!!! 

WOW WHAT A CUTE BABY :3

I made a really stupid little sound. Oh my god, so adorbs… 

Miles is literally the cutest super hero ever

EVER

Wow I really need to read these comics.

Awwww!

Just when you think no superhero could ever be more fumblingly adorkable than Peter Parker.

oh god wait why did I just start shipping him with Jaime Reyes, FUCK

Just finished reading the first two TPBs of Miles’s series, plus this Miles/Pete crossover.

I have come to the conclusion the Miles Morales is the freakin’ cutest superhero of all time, bar none. He’s like a puppy in human form, seriously. *pinches his cheeks*

"You know, she solved you. The mascot."

Are we going to talk about the fact that Joan has discussed that conversation with him?

We know she was angry and kept it all bottled up in the restaurant but when she finally got back to Sherlock she must have let lose about what Moriarty said. I’m guessing we caught the end of it in Gregson’s office.

I think she was especially mad about being called a mascot; that’s why he picks up on it in his confrontation with Moriarty, because it upset Joan the most, so he takes the thing that hurt her and throws it back in Moriarty’s face to prove Joan’s power, to use the insult as a tool of Joan’s power.

In writing everything is done with a purpose; there are no accidents. “The Mascot.” is it’s own sentence to truely emphasise Joan’s place in this world, because if you’ve made it through 24 episodes and still think Joan Watson is a sidekick, this scene proves you very much wrong.

This one line takes Sherlock and Joan’s equality and brands it into the very heart of the show: In Elementary, there’s no such thing as a sidekick.
