Adrianne Palicki makes her debut on next week’s all-new “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” episode, “A Hen in the Wolfhouse.” As reported back in August, she’s playing Bobbi Morse who, in the comics, becomes the Avenger Mockingbird. Today, Hypable has posted a clip featuring the Morse character and you can check it out in the player below!
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 doesn’t 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.
