Scott Free is the natural son of Highfather, the ruler of the New Gods of New Genesis. As a child Scott is exchanged with Darkseid's son Orion as part of a peace treatise between New Genesis and Apokolips. While Highfather nurtures Orion as his own child, Darkseid neglects Scott and relegated him to misery and abuse in Granny Goodness's orphanage. He resists Granny's attempts to break his spirit, joining an underground resistance and becoming the most skilled escape artist in the DC Universe in the process. Here he also meets and falls in love with Big Barda, one of Granny's proteges, whom he eventually marries. Eventually the pair manage to escape Apokolips where they continue to resist the forces of Darkseid alongside the forces of New Genesis and the Justice League.
