Synopsis for "Bad N' Beautiful: The Babes of Bodyslam!"

Big Barda has her first match for the Bad N Beautiful Babes of Wrestling. No one has told her though that professional wrestling isn't exactly a real fight. Barda makes short work of her first opponent, Pulsating Pythona, winning by knockout. She's upset that Scott isn't there to see her match since he's busy dealing with the JLA.

The following week, Scott still isn't back and Barda is informed that she is scheduled to lose her next match. Still thinking this is all real, Barda refuses to lose. Her opponent, Betty Bodyslam, overhears this and promises to win by any means necessary.

The match begins and Barda immediately nails Betty with a real punch to the jaw. She tries to fight back but is no match for Barda. Betty submits. Since Barda was supposed to lose the match, Pete the promoter is about to fire her, but the crowd loves her so he agrees to keep her on.

On the taxi ride back home, Oberon tries to explain to Barda and Highfather that pro wrestling is predetermined and often choreographed. He tells Barda it's all a show and that she will have to lose certain matches.

The following week, Barda arrives for her wrestling match. She overhears Big Lou, one of BBBW's employees berating a mini wrestler named Mini-Maxine. Barda rushes to her rescue but Maxine insists that Barda put Big Lou down. Big Lou then tells Barda that she needs to lose her match or else. Big Lou pulls a gun so Barda kicks his butt.

Barda asks Maxine why she let Big Lou talk to her like that. Maxine says she doesn't have the size to fight back and also doesn't want to lose her job. Barda tries to comfort her and as she does, her opponent for the evening, Mama Mound, overhears her. Mama Mound offers to fight Barda for real during their match. Mama does her best but Barda still wins, earning a shot at the BBBW Champion, Amazon Angel.

The promoter, Pete, is upset with Barda winning the match but Bardamania sweeps the city. The promoter goes to a shadowy group called the Big Boys who secretly runs Bad N Beautiful Babes of Wrestling. He makes a case for Barda due to her popularity but Big Boy, the leader of the Big Boys, fires Pete. Amazon Angel is also there and the leader gives her a belt, saying it will make her able to beat Barda. Amazon Angle asks where he got the belt but he tells her not to worry about it.

Barda and Amazon Angel have their match. The Amazon Angel immediately gets the upper hand, due to the belt she's wearing. Highfather is in the audience and notices the belt is glowing. He yells to Barda to remove it. She does and starts beating Amazon Angel. Just then, a sniper from the upper seats takes a shot at the wrestlers. Barda protects Amazon Angel as Highfather shoots a blast at the sniper with his staff. The sniper runs off but runs into the other wrestlers from BBBW who aren't too happy about their co-workers being shot at.

It turns out that when Barda went to protect Amazon Angel, she actually pinned her, making Barda the new Bad N Beautiful Babes of Wrestling Champion. Big Boy watches this on TV, angered over Barda winning. Also upset is the real person behind all this, Granny Goodness! She has Big Boy dragged off to Apokolips by her thugs.

Pete the promoter is in the hospital from being beat up by Big Boy's boys but he was able to testify against them. Big Boy has disappeared and BBBW had to shut down. Barda tells her fellow female wrestlers that she will train them to be real warriors, the New Female Furies.
