Mockingbird is an excellent gymnast, martial artist, and hand-to-hand combatant. She has a doctoral degree in biology and is well trained in espionage and counter-espionage techniques. She is also a proficient markswoman and well versed in the use of her battle staves.
Mockingbird carries two hollow steel-alloy poles (battles staves) each extendable to four feet. She uses these staves as fighting clubs - she screwed them together to be used as a bo-staff or javelin, or extend to an eight-foot vaulting pole.
Mockingbird's costume is made of Kevlar and Beta cloth making it bulletproof and fire resistant.
Barbara Morse was an S.H.I.E.L.D. agent studying the recreation of the Super-Soldier Serum that made Captain America. With her favorite professor, Dr. Wilma Calvin, and maverick scientist Theodore Sallis, and others stationed in the Florida Everglades, the project was betrayed by Ellen Brandt, Sallis's lover, and Dr. Paul Allen, another scientist on the project Morse was sent to investigate by pretending she loved him. Unbeknownst to Morse, Sallis's only sample of the serum inadvertently transformed him into the Man-Thing. Morse and Allen enlisted the aid of Ka-Zar in investigating Sallis's disappearance. They found Brandt, insane, and got her to a hospital. Ka-Zar uncovered Allen's treachery, and Man-Thing burned him to death, after which Morse was assigned to accompany Ka-Zar to New York City to find and destroy additional copies of the sample while Dr. Calvin recovered from a gunshot wound in the hospital, and Morse and Ka-Zar helped get Calvin's son out of the illegal drug business.
Morse subsequently used the costumed identity of the Huntress and later Mockingbird to expose the corrupt activities of certain S.H.I.E.L.D agents. After being injured in her work she received a commendation by then S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Nick Fury, who used her information to expose dozens of subversives within S.H.I.E.L.D. Resigning from S.H.I.E.L.D., Mockingbird was hired to investigate Cross Technological Enterprises (CTE), where she clashed with security director Hawkeye. The two soon discovered that CTE was working for the criminal Crossfire helping to implement his plans to brainwash super heroes into killing each other off. The two joined forces against Crossfire and his underlings, becoming attracted to each other in the process. At the case’s successful conclusion, Mockingbird proposed to Hawkeye and the two married. When Hawkeye was appointed head of the West Coast branch of the Avengers, Mockingbird became the team's first new recruit and was instrumental in helping Hawkeye form the new team.
Months later, during a time traveling adventure in 1876, Mockingbird was abducted and drugged by the crazed vigilante called the Phantom Rider (Lincoln Slade), who attempted to force her to become his bride. Regaining her senses, Mockingbird fought the Rider and allowed him to fall to his death. After the West Coast Avengers returned to their home era, Mockingbird kept the nature of the Phantom Rider’s death a secret. However, the Rider’s ghost soon appeared and told the Avengers what had transpired. Distraught that an Avenger (especially his wife) had allowed a man to die, Hawkeye became estranged from his wife, and Mockingbird re-entered into government service. She participated in Operation: Vigilance, a program to provide protection from any potential threat from the Vision, only to rebel once she discovered the program's full agenda. Helping the Avengers to rescue the Vision, she was gradually reconciled with Hawkeye. Together they helped train the Great Lakes Avengers and Mockingbird became good friends with Ashley Crawford. The pair eventually renewed their relationship, only for Mockingbird to perish while protecting Hawkeye from the demonic Mephisto. She has since been resurrected by the Grim Reaper for his Legion of the Unliving, but turned against him. Before returning to the realm in which she was paying her penance for killing the Phantom Rider, she gave a warning to the Avengers which eventually led to the resurrection of Hellcat.
Recently Clint (as Ronin) was reunited with Bobbi in the mysterious Savage Land when she stepped out of a crashed Skrull space craft along with several other heroes including Captain America. When Mister Fantastic arrives and reveals that Mockingbird is another Skrull impersonator Clint kills the Skrull who had taken the form of his wife. Latter in the final battle of the Secret Invasion Iron Man finds a Skrull ship in orbit with many of the kidnapped heroes on board and among them is Mockingbird. It is still unclear how she can be alive when it was established that she is currently fighting battles in the afterlife, but Clint has accepted that this is truly his long lost wife returned to him.
