Now that Bobbi Morse's cover has been blown, Marvel has released a first look at Adrianne Palicki in her Mockingbird S.H.I.E.L.D. tactical outfit!
Morse revealed herself as an undercover Agent working for Director Coulson in last night's episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. titled A Hen in the Wolf House. About the character, Executive Producer Jed Whedon teases:
"Bobbi Morse is a well-seasoned spy whose ability to slip in and out of undercover situations seamlessly will prove invaluable to our team. But her appearance comes as a gut-punch to Hunter, as the history they share is complicated to say the least."
Along with this first official look at Adrianne Palicki from next week's episode A Fractured House, new concept art for Mockingbird's look by the series' Costume Designer, Ann Foley, has arrived along with her thoughts on the look:
"I looked at all of her comic appearances and really wanted to try to bring elements of the look from the comics into the costume that we're doing now for the show because I know it's important to the fans. It's important to me to keep certain elements, but we had to change it, obviously, for practicality, because it had to fit into our world. It had to have a kind of tactical feeling to it too so that it made sense in our universe.
She's got rivets that are in the straps across her chest, and those are there as a tribute to the buttons that go down the side of her [most recent] costume [in the comics], as well as the colors that we were using, [which] are a tribute as well. Her colors are navy blue and white with a little bit of black in there, [but] white would not have been pretty on camera so we changed it to grey. [We] still tried to maintain the original style of what was in the comic book because [with] that white panel that goes up her center and down her legs, [so] we've mirrored that in her costume but in gray instead of white."
Bobbi Morse will appear in her full tactical suit in next week's all-new episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. titled A Fractured House at 9:00 p.m. ET on ABC.
