History:

(Bullets and Bracelets#1 (bts)) - Big Titania was raised on Apokolips and trained by Granny Harkness to become one of the Female Furies.  She met Scott Free, however, fell in love with him, joined his rebel underground movement on Apokolips, and eventually married him.

(Secret Crisis of the Infinity Hour#1) - Big Titania, Scott Free, and the rest of the Apokoliptan rebels established contact with the Earth heroes Diana Prince (Princess Diana of Themyscira) and the Punisher (Trevor Castle) to launch the ground assault against Thanoseid, who had acquired the five Infinity Links and threatened to destroy the entire Amalgam Universe.

(Secret Crisis of the Infinity Hour#6) - While Thanoseid was held at bay by Wonder Woman (Ororo), Scott Free and his fellow Apokoliptan rebel Orion simultaneously struck the Infinity Links, which Thanoseid had already combined into the time-halting Infinity Loop.  Although Scott Free and Orion succeeded in fracturing the Infinity Loop and causing it to disintegrate, they sacrificed their own lives in the process.

(Bullets and Bracelets#1 (bts)) - After Scott Free's death, Big Titania became filled with nothing but hurt and rage as her "tender side" died.  Although the heroes saved all existence during the SECRET CRISIS OF THE INFINITY HOUR, Big Titania was bitter that they could not save Scott Free -- the only man she ever really loved.  The rage-filled Big Titania re-affiliated herself with Thanoseid's Female Furies and eventually became their commander.

(Bullets and Bracelets#1) - "Final Thrust" - Informed by Granny Harkness that Diana Prince would be arriving in the Armaghetto section of Apokolips to search for her kidnapped son, Big Titania decided that she should be the one to "nail" Diana -- considering how close they once were.  Upon her arrival, Big Titania attacked Diana Prince; but Diana, who was desperately searching for her abducted son, fought back with unexpected intensity and floored her assailant.  But as Diana stood over Big Titania's body and asked her to reveal the location of her son, she was struck in the back and knocked unconscious by the spiked fist of Mad Harriet, one of the Female Furies under Big Titania's command.  Admitting to herself that her heart was not in the battle, Big Titania instructed the Female Furies to bring the unconscious body of Diana to Granny Harkness.

The Female Furies brought Diana before Granny Harkness and Thanoseid.  The Punisher attempted to rescue her, but was greatly outnumbered by Thanoseid's assembled servants.  At the last moment, Big Titania had a sudden change of heart and finally realized that Diana and Trevor (rather than Granny Harkness and the Female Furies) were her true friends.  Assisting in the rescue effort, Big Titania incapacitated the Female Fury known as Bernadeth.

With Big Titania's assistance, Diana and Trevor succeeded in finding their son and foiling Thanoseid's vile scheme.  Having no further use for Big Titania, a disgusted Thanoseid struck her with his Omega Beams and sent her, along with his assassin Kanto (Ryan Castiglione), where they belonged -- to live with Highfather Odin and the New Asgods across the Bifrost Bridge in the gleaming realm of New Asgard.

In case you're confused, Amalgam Comics didn't really exist beyond those seen in the few DC/Marvel cross-overs. The titles you don't recognize are amalgams of similar Marvel and DC comics--Snood.

Amalgam Universe

Earth-Amalgam

The SECRET CRISIS OF THE INFINITY HOUR is an amalgam of Marvel's SECRET WARS and THE INFINITY GAUNTLET and DC's CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS and ZERO HOUR.
 
 

Special thanks to writer John Ostrander for clarifying some of the component sources for his amalgamated characters and providing some additional insight into the Amalgam Universe!

            Q: BULLETS AND BRACELETS#1 mentions that both Scott Free and Orion died during the SECRET
                CRISIS OF THE INFINITY HOUR . Was "Scott Free" intended to be Orion's alter-ego, or were they
                two separate characters altogether?

            Mr. Ostrander: Two separate characters. One was married to Big Titania and the other was a battle
                friend of the Punisher.


Scott Free

The husband of Big Titania, Scott Free was one of the leaders of the Apokoliptan rebel underground -- a group dedicated to the overthrow of Thanoseid.  During the SECRET CRISIS OF THE INFINITY HOUR, Thanoseid obtained the five Infinity Links and combined them to form the time-halting vortex known as the Infinity Loop, which threatened to bring an end to all existence.  Scott Free and his band of rebels joined forces with the Earth heroes Diana Prince (Princess Diana of Themyscira) and the Punisher (Trevor Castle), who had been mystically transported to Apokolips by Dr. Strangefate (Charles Xavier), in order to launch the ground assault against Thanoseid.  After many heroes and villains lost their lives in the battle against Thanoseid, Scott Free and his fellow rebel Orion simultaneously struck the Infinity Loop -- sacrificing their lives to fracture the vortex and defeat Thanoseid.

Scott Free is an Amalgam Universe version of  Mister Miracle (Scott Free)  of the DC Universe.

CLARIFICATIONS:

Also assume that the Amalgam characters have no other connection to any others than whom they are Amalgamated, unless specifically mentioned.

Big Titania is an amalgam of:

            Titania of Earth-616, Mary "Skeeter" MacPherran, @ Secret Wars#3

            Big Barda of the mainstream DC Universe, Barda Free, @ Mister Miracle#4
 

No known connections to, and not to be confused with

            Big Sif, the romantic interest of Thorion,  @ Thorion of the New Asgods#1
