Marvel announced at Baltimore Comic Con Summit that Chelsea Cain would be writing a new Mockingbird comic, with Kate Niemczyk providing art.
Despite gaining massive popularity in the last couple of years since her inclusion in hit television show 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.', played brilliantly by Adrianne Palicki, Mockingbird has never starred in her own book. She has been used in other characters titles, and in team books, especially alongside Hawkeye, but has never been the centre of a story.
All that's about to change with the upcoming launch of 'Mockingbird'. The title will reportedly follow her 'medical history. Nick Fury saved her life with a dose of Super Soldier Serum and Infinity Formula, and I (Cain) wanted to explore the fallout from that.'
'She's got to go in every week for a medical check-up. I loved the idea of this medical clinic for super heroes - a place where they go to get stitched up and get their Prozac refilled. And the waiting room would be full of bored heroes leafing through old 'Us Weekly'. Would Bobbi uncover a conspiracy in that sort of environment?'
'Well she is good at ferreting out conspiracies having been subject to them a number of times herself. Frankly she's a little sensitive about that. But the books will also show Bobbi on her personal time, and off having Bond-level adventures - the Roger Moore years.'
