An Avenger from the comics joins the team...
While Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. picked up a lot of momentum in the last half of the season, there is no denying that there was a lot of criticism toward the show early on. One of those complaints was that there weren't a lot of source material from the comic books used and that a lot of the bigger names in the Marvel Universe weren't brought in, either movie characters or otherwise. Some people (including yours truly) proposed some characters who could make it into the show, such as Mockingbird.
Well, hold onto your hats, folks. In the following video presented at the Marvel TV panel (via EW), Patton Oswalt as the Koenigs reveals that Mockingbird will indeed be joining the series in season two. Mockingbird, for the uninitiated, is Bobbi Morse, a hand-to-hand expert who was married to Hawkeye for a long period of time and was a charter member of the Avengers West Coast. She has been a S.H.I.E.L.D. member in the comics since the mid-1970s. No word on how many episodes she'll be in yet or if she'll be an official part of the main team, not to mention who will be playing her.
