Marvel has announced that Bobbi Morse -AKA: Mockingbird will get her own on going series. Mockingbird has seen a resurgence recently in both in comics and also the small screen. The series will be written by Chelsea Cain, with art by Kate Niemczyk.
Recently as part of the 50th anniversary of S.H.I.E.L.D., Mockingbird received a solo one-shot. The issue was received well enough for Marvel to greenlight an ongoing series.
“Until [the S.H.I.E.L.D. 50th ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL: MOCKINGBIRD] one-shot she’d never had her own book—and even the one-shot was part of the 50th Anniversary of S.H.I.E.L.D. thing. She’s been really underserved by the Marvel Universe. She’s always appeared in other people’s stories, serving their narratives. So I love the idea of giving her a chance to be the center of a story and to really have some agency.
I’m drawn to Bobbi because she’s a terrific character—she’s brainy and cool and confident, and quick with a quip,” she enthuses. “In fact it turns out we have a few traits in common. We’re not big sharers. We’re control freaks. And we’ve both been married to Clint Barton. I mean, what are the odds?”
Comments from Chelesa Cain about Mockingbird
Cain also commented that the first arc of the series will focus on Bobbi’s medical history, the lingering effects of the Super Soldier Serum and also the Infinity Formula. Cain also has plans to spotlight the “super hero clinic’ where Bobbi receives her weekly checkups.
The first issue of Mockingbird is set for 2016
