Mockingbird

(Bobby Morse)


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

Context

This entry is a *placeholder*. It’s embarrassingly old notes, plus some illustrations we wanted to keep.

One day there’ll be a glorious series of chronological profiles exploring her career from soup to nuts instead. But in the meanwhile… old notes.


Background

  • Real Name: Barbara “Bobbi” Morse Barton
  • Marital Status: Married
  • Known Relatives: Clint Barton (husband)
  • Group Affiliation: Former member of the West Coast Avengers, Great Lakes Avengers, SHIELD
  • Base Of Operations: Hell ; formerly Avengers Compound (L.A., Cal.)
  • Height: 5’9” Weight: 135 lbs
  • Eyes: Blue Hair: Blonde


Powers and Abilities

Mockingbird was an experienced biologist, a highly trained intelligence agent, an acrobatically agile gymnast and a formidable hand-to-hand combatant. Her principal weapons were her battle staves – steel striking rods that could be snapped together into a single battle staff (and then, if needed, further telescoped into a vaulting pole).

She took her code-name from her habit of unnerving opponents with derisive verbal banter.

Description

The first illustrated costume is the classic one. The one below it, with the bare legs, was more adapted to the climate in California.


Personality

A forward-going, self-affirming woman with a touch of feminism. She’s a well trained special agent, with the skills and habits of a spy and special operative. She feels quite at ease in close combat, not hesitating to engage superior and superhuman opponents as long as the situation does not make it foolhardy.

Her coolness and common sense perfectly compensate the somewhat gung-ho Hawkeye.

Mockingbird is not solely a scrapper and super-cop. She’s also quite scholarly and a brilliant scientist, especially so in biology. She’s very devoted to her Motivation, upholding justice, honesty and general goodness.

DC Universe History

My own timeline completely amalgamates Mockingbird with Black Canary and Hawkeye with Green Arrow, resulting in a merger of Dinah and Bobbi that works quite well. Using wigs and changing her weapons and techniques, she actually uses both identities due to a past subplot.

Currently the Black Canary (blonde wig) operates with the Birds of Prey while the Mockingbird (with raven hair wig) operates solo and sometimes for SHIELD. Oracle is aware of both identities.
