Barbara Bobbi Morse was a biologist turned agent for the international espionage agency SHIELD. Later, she went freelance as the costumed intelligence operative Huntress, although she changed her moniker to Mockingbird.
As Mockingbird, she met and married the hero Hawkeye after they joined forces against the villain Crossfire, and she began serving alongside Hawkeye his hero team, the Avengers, becoming a full official member of the group when she joined Hawkeye in founding the team’s west coast roster. Mockingbird remained a mainstay of the team until an ethical dispute estranged her from both Hawkeye and the Avengers.
This dispute hinged on Mockingbird’s abduction and violation by her crazed admirer, the Phantom Rider, who died in their final confrontation when she allowed him to fall from a cliff after he tried unsuccessfully to kill her. The Phantom Rider’s ghost then began tormenting her, and prompted Mockingbird’s estrangement from the Avengers when he convinced Hawkeye that Mockingbird had “murdered” him. Mockingbird eventually exorcised his ghost from the earthly plane and started working with the Avengers again on an irregular basis while trying to mend her marriage to Hawkeye.
While on leave from the Avengers, Hawkeye and Mockingbird became mentors to amid western team of novice adventurers called the Great Lakes Avengers until Hawkeye returned to the western Avengers roster, prompting Mockingbird to rejoin as a reservist and, eventually, as a full active member. By that time, Hawkeye and Mockingbird had realized how much they still loved each other and finally fully reconciled, calling off their divorce before it became final. Their renewed bliss proved short-lived, though, when Mockingbird was slain in action by the demon Mephisto when the team were escaping from his realm.
More recently, she was one of several deceased Avengers temporarily resurrected by the villainous Grim Reaper to serve him in Avengers, but shook off the Reaper’s control and helped the Avengers defeat him before returning to the realm of the dead once more.
