Fans got very excited to hear that Bobbi Morse–who will eventually become Mockingbird–would be entering the fold of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” and now ABC (via Entertainment Weekly) has given us our first look at Adrianne Palicki as the character. Check it out below!
Morse will make her entrance into the shadowy spy world of the show in the October 21 episode of Season 2 titled “A Hen in the Wolfhouse” as the head of Hydra Securty, which doesn’t bode well for Agent Coulson. Most famous for her role on the series “Friday Night Lights,” Palicki has more than her fair share of background as a superhero having played “Wonder Woman” in David E. Kelley’s failed pilot, as well as Lady Jaye in G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
A member of S.H.I.E.L.D. and The Avengers in the comics, Mockingbird was first created by Gerry Conway and Barry Smith and introduced in Astonishing Tales #6 in 1971. Though she doesnt have any super powers, she was injected with an experimental serum that gave her enhanced strength and speed. The character also became romantically involved with Hawkeye in the source material.
The Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. cast includes Clark Gregg as fan favorite Phil Coulson, along with Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Brett Dalton as Agent Grant Ward, Chloe Bennet as Skye, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz and Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons.
The series is executive produced by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon, Maurissa Tancharoen, Jeffrey Bell and Jeph Loeb. Season 2 of Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premiered on September 23.
