Previously none; however, due to being injected with a formula to safe her life, Bobbi now has a degree of super strength, with an unknown upper-limit--strong enough to dent steel with her bare hands. She also has enhanced ability/durability--being able to jump out of buildings without harm. In addition, her aging process has been slowed down.

Mockingbird has a PhD in biology and was well trained by S.H.I.E.L.D. in espionage and counter-espionage techniques. She is an excellent gymnast, martial artist, and hand-to-hand combatant. She is also a proficient marks-woman and well versed in the use of her battle staves--two hollow steel-alloy poles each extend up to four feet. She often uses these staves as fighting clubs, she screws them together to be used as a bo-staff, and/or extends them to become an eight-foot vaulting pole. 

Other Info
Barbara "Bobbi" Morse attended the Georgia Institute of Technology, specializing in biochemistry. After completing her PhD., she was admitted onto the Project: Gladiator team under Dr. Wilma Calvin to rediscover the Super-Soldier formula that created Captain America (Steve Rogers). It was during this time, that Bobbi was recruited to S.H.I.E.L.D. and became known as "Agent 19." Then, when Dr. Theodore Sallis--a maverick scientist also working on the Super-Soldier project--disappeared, Bobbi was given her first field assignment: to accompany S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Paul Allen (suspected of being a traitor) to the Savage Land to enlist the services of jungle lord Ka-Zar to find Dr. Sallis. Agent Allen and Agent 19 did succeed in contacting Ka-Zar and took him to the Florida Everglades. However, they never found Sallis (unbeknownst to them, he had been transformed into the Man-Thing). But, Ka-Zar and Bobbi were able to flush out a splinter group of the subversive organization A.I.M. (Advanced Idea Mechanics) who were attempting to steal the Super Soldier formula, and revealed Agent Allen to be a member. (To learn about the above highlighted characters, team, and/or place, just click on their names. Also, Bobbi as "Agent 19" is shown in the third picture posted.)

Afterward, Bobbi was asked to work directly for the U. S. government to root out subversives within S.H.I.E.L.D. Thus, dropping out of S.H.I.E.L.D., Morse assumed the costumed identity of the "Huntress" and began her own investigations, looting data banks, and compiling evidence of corruption. However, it wasn't long until she earned a new codename of "Mockingbird" (because she would often taunt her opponents in battle). In the end, Mockingbird took the evidence to S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Nick Fury, who used her information to expose dozens of subversives within S.H.I.E.L.D. (To learn about Nick Fury, click on the highlighted name above. Note: Beware of the low-cut outfit worn by Mockingbird on Nick Fury's bio page. Also, Bobbi in her first "Mockingbird" costume is shown in the fourth picture posted.)

Soon after, Mockingbird resigned from S.H.I.E.L.D. and was hired as a freelance agent to investigate Cross Technological Enterprises (CTE), where she clashed with chief of security: Clint Barton (aka Hawkeye). However, the two soon discovered that CTE was actually working for the criminal Crossfire who was hoping to use hypnotic ultrasounds to brainwash superheroes into killing each other. The two ended up joining forces against Crossfire and his underlings. During the process, the two quickly fell in love and were married. (Click on the highlighted name above to learn more about the company and/or characters.)

Later on, when the Vision (then Avengers Chairman) was expanding the Avengers' operations, Hawkeye was appointed head of the new "West Coast Avengers." Mockingbird became the team's first new recruit and was instrumental in helping Hawkeye form the new team--which including heroes like Iron Man, Wonder Man, and Tigra. (To learn about the highlighted team above, just click on their name. Note: Beware of the revealing outfit worn by Tigra on her bio page.)

At one point, the West Coast Avengers had Kang the Conqueror send them back in time to 1876. The team encountered an Old West vigilante gang consisting of the Phantom Rider (Licoln Slade), Two-Gun Kid, and Rawhide Kid, and joined with them to fight a large criminal outfit headed by Iron Mask. The Phantom Rider came to believe that Mockingbird was a goddess, and since he was one with the spirits, decided that she should be his. After they all had defeated Iron Mask's gang, the West Coast Avengers traveled back home. However, just before leaving, the Phantom Rider kidnapped Mockingbird and rode away. She was then drugged by the Phantom Rider with an Indian love potion and then forced to become his bride. As time passed, however, Mockingbird began to slowly fall out of the influence of the potion. Both the Two-Gun Kid and Rawhide Kid were on her trail, determined to recover her. She finally broke free from the Phantom Rider's influence, when the Two-Gun Kid showed up in a makeshift Hawkeye outfit to jog her memory. Mockingbird stated that the Phantom Rider had raped her while she was drugged and she rode off to bring him to justice. She found him and fought the Phantom Rider to a mountain peak’s edge and allowed him to fall off. Mockingbird stood and watched him fall, doing nothing to save him. There was some justice in this; however, it also broke the Avengers' code of no killing. Therefore, after she made it back to her home era, Mockingbird kept the nature of the Phantom Rider’s death a secret. But, soon after, the Phantom Rider’s ghost appeared and told the team that she had been instrumental in his death, and had essentially murdered him. Distraught that an Avenger, especially his wife, had allowed a man to die, Hawkeye became estranged from his wife, and Mockingbird left the team. (Click on the highlighted names above to learn about the different characters.)

Afterward, Mockingbird re-entered into government service and participated in Operation: Vigilance (a program to provide protection from any potential threat from the Vision). However, she soon realized the program's full agenda and ended up helping the Avengers to rescue the Vision. Gradually, she reconciled with Hawkeye, although their relationship never fully recovered.

At one point, a group of people in the Midwest United States were calling themselves the "Great Lakes Avengers." Therefore, Mockingbird was sent by Hawkeye to see who these "impostor" Avengers were. After she arrived, she discovered that they were a group of heroes, but lacked training. Therefore, Mockingbird and Hawkeye took it upon themselves to train the team. During this time, Mockingbird became good friends with Ashley Crawford (aka Big Bertha). (To learn about the team and/or character highlighted above, just click on their names.)

At some point, Mockingbird was abducted by the Skrulls and was replaced by a Skrull duplicate during the Skrull's Secret Invasion on Earth. Meanwhile, on the Skrull homeworld (Skrullos), Mockingbird gathered information on the Skrull’s Secret Invasion plan. After three years at the hands of the Skrulls, she was eventually reunited with Hawkeye (now known as "Ronin") and his teammates in the New Avengers. (To learn about the race, event, place, and/or characters, just click on their highlighted names above.)

Later on, when Norman Osborn became Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., many S.H.I.E.L.D. agents defected from the team, Mockingbird included. Therefore, she decided to create the World Counter-terrorism Agency (W.C.A.) with the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents that had defected. (To learn about NormanOsborn, just click on the highlighted names above.)

At one point, during a confrontation with Superiashe was shot in the chest. To save her life, Clint Barton had Nick Fury inject Mockingbird with a formula that was a combination of the Infinity Formula and the Super Soldier Serum. After waking up, Mockingbird made a swift recovery--due to the formula--and rejoined her teammates back at the Avengers Mansion. (To learn about the characters, item, and/or place, click on the highlighted names above.)

More recently, Mockingbird has been recruited by Maria Hill to join S.H.I.E.L.D's own Secret Avengers (Black Ops Unit). As part of the team, she has worked with individuals including her ex-husband Hawkeye, Black Widow, Nick Fury Jr., and even Agent Coulson. However, on one mission, Mockingbird was confronted by Scientist Supreme (Andrew Forson). Mockingbird fought and defeated him. However, due to Forson being the leader of a U.N. member nation, Mockingbird left to live under the radar along with Quake (Daisy Johnson) and the Winter Soldier.

  1. She's pretty awesome- but in the TV show, they've hinted at her being possibly a triple agent working for someone else?!- Who would that be?! And I like that she has a non-traditional weapon =)
