The (almost) former Wonder Woman to play fan-favorite S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent
Palicki will guest-star in an as-yet unknown capacity as Agent Barbara “Bobbi” Morse, aka “Mockingbird,” on the series. The the character’s appearance was first teased by new-season regular Patton Oswalt at San Diego Comic-Con last month. She joins an impressive roster of talent including Lucy Lawless and Kyle MacLachlan scheduled to make appearances in the new season.
Debuting as a supporting character in the adventures of Marvel’s Tarzan-analogue Ka-Zar: The Jungle Lord, Mockingbird shot to fan-favorite status as the partner, love-interest and eventual wife of Hawkeye in a well-regarded 1983 miniseries. The two characters eventually co-founded The West Coast Avengers. It is not yet known whether this indicates the possibility of Jeremy Renner (who plays Hawkeye in the Marvel films) appearing on Agents.
