Fictional character biography[edit]

First appearance[edit]

Little Barda first appears in a scrapbook created by fellow Titan Raven, which had pictures of the 20 members who joined and left the Teen Titans during the one year gap. Little Barda's picture shows her demonstrating her strength by picking up a car with one hand.[1]

52[edit]

Barda appears alongside a small group of Titans in 52 #21 when they became introduced with a new version of an old team, Infinity, Inc. One Infinitor confuses her with Big Barda, until Little Barda corrects her and states, "But maybe one day I'll be the big" (she is shown blowing a bubble gum bubble as she says this line). She seems to be on good terms with fellow Titan Power Boy, as both of them came from Apokolips. At the end of the issue, she and Power Boy resign from the Titans team and depart for places unknown.[2]

Titans East[edit]

Later, Little Barda joins a newly formed Titans East. However, their first training session turns into a massacre when the group is attacked by a mysterious foe who kills Power Boy.[3] Little Barda and the rest of her Titans East teammates are left in critical condition.[4] She eventually recovers.[5]

Other versions[edit]

  • A toddler version of Little Barda appears in several issues of Tiny Titans.[6]
