Mister Miracle is the son of Izaya, who is now known as Highfather, ruler of the New Gods of the planet New Genesis, and his wife Avia, who was murdered by Steppenwolf of the planet Apokolips. To seal the pact that lead to a temporary end to the war between the two planets, Highfather gave Darkseid, ruler of Apokolips, custody of his son, while Highfather took custody of Darkseid's son Orion. Darkseid gave Izaya's son to Granny Goodness, who named him Scott Free and raised him in her "orphanage", where she trained him to become an aerotrooper warrior.
Metron of New Genesis lead Scott to Himon, the visionary scientist who opposed Darkseid's tyranny. Himon encouraged Scott to flee Apokolips, and one day, aided by his friend Big Barda, a fellow student at Granny Goodness's orphanage, he did. Scott declared his determination to be an individual, not just a pawn of Darkseid's, and escaped to Earth through an interdimensional "boom tube" created for him by Himon and Metron. Scott's escape broke the pact, and Darkseid renewed his war with New Genesis.
On Earth Scott was befriended by the aged Thaddeus Brown, who was preparing to come out of retirement as the costumed master escape artist Mister Miracel. The gangster Steel Hand had Brown killed, and Scott avenged Brown's death by assuming the guise of Mister Miracle, bringing Steel Hand to justice. Helped by Brown's assistant Oberon, Scott began a career as the new Mister Miracle, using the advanced science of the New Gods to perform spectacular escapes.
Darkseid's minions tried repeatedly to kill Scott, but he finally won his right to freedom through trial by combat on Apokolips. He has since married Barda, who also escaped to Earth. They went to live in New Genesis's Supertown but still return to Earth at times.
POWERS AND WEAPONS
Despite previous accounts, Mister Miracle has no known super-powers. He relies on his amazing technological devices, many of which he conceals in his costume, and above all on his sharp wits. Mister Miracle is a master escape artist, rivaled in skill only by Batman. Mister Miracle is also an Olympic-level athlete and a superb hand-to-hand combatant.
Mister Miracle's principal device is his sentient computer called a Mother Box, which he wears on his shoulder, and which can perform various feats. He can fly by standing atop his aero-discs. He also carries a small "multi-cube" instrument that performs various functions, such as firing a laser beam and ejecting a long steel cable.
