Geoffrey Colo relives the iconic moments from Season 2!

As we inch closer to the landmark 100th episode of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” we continue to commemorate the series with the “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Road to 100” art program.

We previously spotlighted Season 1 with an art piece by Dale Keown. Marvel.com had the opportunity to reflect on Season 2 and the Season 2 art piece below from artist Daniel Acuña with Geoffrey Colo, Transmedia Producer at Marvel TV.

‘Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Road to 100’ Season 2 art by Daniel Acuña

Marvel.com: Daniel Acuña highlights several noteworthy scenes of the second season in the art above. Can you share the significance of each scene depicted?

Geoffrey Colo: These four images represent key, life-changing moments for our S.H.I.E.L.D. characters in Season 2. Acuña did an amazing job at capturing them. I particularly love the badass Coulson profile.

We start at the top left with an image from the aptly-titled episode, “The Writing on the Wall.” Curse that damn memory machine for driving Coulson to the brink of madness, but he did finally unlock the meaning behind his bizarre alien writing. It’s a city. You know what that means. Road trip!

Bottom left, Skye breaks free from her Inhuman cocoon. It’s the birth of Quake and, for me, one of the most iconic moments of the series.

At the center, we have our team, accompanied by the alt S.H.I.E.L.D. logo. The “real” S.H.I.E.L.D., headed by Robert Gonzales, and backed by Bobbi and Mack was philosophically opposed to Coulson’s team who believed that Inhumans should be embraced, instead of feared. Can’t we all just get along?

In our final image, bottom right, May clutches the lifeless body of Katya, an Inhuman girl May was forced to kill in the line of duty. This heartbreaking flashback episode revealed the dark, hidden truth behind May’s infamous nickname, The Cavalry. Definitely one of my faves.

Marvel.com: You’ve been part of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” early on starting with Season 2. What has it been like brining the series to life, and seeing where we are today?

Geoffrey Colo: Watching the evolution from script to screen on a weekly basis is the most enjoyable part of my job. We have such a dedicated team of producers and writers, and a cast and crew who always go above and beyond. I’m just honored to be part of it all.

Marvel.com: That’s so incredible! We can’t talk about S.H.I.E.L.D. without mentioning the fans.

Geoffrey Colo: It’s always rewarding when the show you work on has such a rabid fan base. Truth be told, we’re all Marvel super fans ourselves. So, the same things our fans geek out over, we do as well. The fact that we’re also able to connect with them directly at Comic-Con and other events, makes it even more special.

Marvel.com: Reflecting on Season 2, are there other key moments you’d like to spotlight on how they impacted the S.H.I.E.L.D. team and series?

Geoffrey Colo: There are so many more moments to spotlight. Don’t touch the Obelisk. Hello Mockingbird. Goodbye Tripp. Hunter joins S.H.I.E.L.D. Welcome to Afterlife. You’re killing me Ward. Deathlok to the rescue. Daisy has a daddy. Coulson loses an arm. Simmons meets the monolith.

Season Five will return Friday, March 2. Don’t miss the 100th episode of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” will air Friday, March 9 at 9|8c on ABC!

Writer Chelsea Cain launches Bobbi Morse into a mystery out on the open sea!

The smell of the salty sea air. The sound of gentle lapping water on the boat’s hull. The sight of blood everywhere.

So it goes for Bobbi Morse as she continues her “nerd cruise” through the pages of MOCKINGBIRD #7 on September 14. We tracked down writer Chelsea Cain on the shuffleboard courts to find out how she put her hero in danger without a moment’s seasickness.

Marvel.com: As these issues make clear, when Mockingbird goes for a cruise, she still does not take it easy. There’s a lot of complications going on here! To start with the most visually obvious one, where did the idea of this story taking place amongst cosplayers come from? From a creative standpoint, as a writer, what about that appealed and/or inspired you?

Chelsea Cain: The entire arc takes place on the “nerd cruise.”  Nerds rejoice: This is a real thing.

I’ve known a lot of people who’ve gone on the nerd cruise. Musicians.  Gamers.  Nerd enthusiasts. Or people who just really, really enjoy eating from buffets while wearing swimsuits. And it has always struck me as a completely insane-fantastic-totally-ridiculous-and-genius idea. So this was my way of going on the nerd cruise, and dragging all of you, and Bobbi, along with me. 

Also, considering recent events involving her ex-husband and pending murder charges, it seemed like a good time for Bobbi to get out of town. The cosplay component was secondary. The nerd cruise definitely has comic book fan element, but to my knowledge they are not walking around dressed in Alpha Flight costumes. 

I think fezzes are more their speed. 

But once I imagined Bobbi trapped on this cruise ship, trying to get away from this mess with Hawkeye’s murder trial, the idea of her running into Hawkeye and Hulk cosplayers was too good to pass-up.

Marvel.com: How specific was the script when it came to guiding Kate Niemczyk’s artwork on the cosplayers—what characters, the quality of their costumes, their overall appearance and so on? How much room did she have as an artist to play with those elements?

Chelsea Cain: I gave Kate guidance and suggestions. Sometimes I was really specific—for story reasons—and other times I’d just say “it’s a roomful of cosplayers.” Kate had a lot of freedom with the extras, as long as there were a certain number of Hawkeye fans and a certain number of Hulk fans.

When Dale-the-Hawkeye-cosplayer shows up, I wanted him in a very 80’s Hawkeye costume, because that’s from the era that he and Bobbi were married.

Marvel.com: Overall, how was the collaboration between you and Kate for this issue? How do you two work together and drive one another forward?

Chelsea Cain: We are so solid. I cannot tell you how much easier it is than those first few issues. Because we have a shorthand now. And Kate so completely gets my sense of humor, and I think feels more confident about contributing to the visual story, rather than just drawing what’s in the script. Her work on this arc is her best yet.

Marvel.com: The next element is the murder. Again, as a writer, what appeals to you about telling a murder mystery, especially one in a relatively isolated area like a cruise ship?

Chelsea Cain: Well I’ve been killing people for about a decade; I write thrillers. So it comes naturally, I guess? I think Agatha Christie would approve.

Marvel.com: The solicit text also seems to imply the murder might be more complex than a crime of passion. Obviously without giving up the story, how much can you say about the agenda of the possible puppet master?

Chelsea Cain: Well, let’s just say that I was not asked to write a Civil War II tie-in; I more or less elbowed my way in. When I heard that Hawkeye was going to kill Banner and why, I felt like Bobbi had to have a response. She used to be married to the guy, and they have a history. And to write an arc where she is just blithely going about her business seemed really daft. 

So I more or less raised my hand was like, “Um, excuse me!  Can I address the whole ex-husband-on-trial-for-murder thing?”

Mockingbird (2016) #7

Mockingbird (2016) #7

What is Marvel Unlimited?

Hawkeye divorced Bobbi back in the day because she supposedly let her ghost cowboy rapist fall off a cliff instead of saving him. And now he kills Banner and calls it justifiable? Maybe. But you don’t get to pull that crap without being called to task, arrow guy.

Marvel.com: Finally, there’s the Bermuda Triangle? How much of a role, how much of a character if you will does the Triangle play in this story? Should Bobbi be prepared for more than just the human danger?

Chelsea Cain: Bobbi is always prepared for anything, even mythical, non-science-based, media-hyped geographical anomalies. But if you’re asking if there will be ghost pirates, yes, eventually there will be ghost pirates.

Marvel.com: To move away from plot into character, with the book just passing the half-year mark, how is Mockingbird evolving in this comic? Has she progressed as you’ve expected or has the character surprised you at times?

Chelsea Cain: The first five issues were a puzzle box—sphere?—so [they] happened out of order, so this is really the first time I’ve gotten a chance to do more linear character development.  It’s actually been really gratifying.  Bobbi tends to be emotionally withholding—I have no idea where she gets it from—but in issues #6-8, she allows herself to be a bit more vulnerable, while still kicking ass across the Atlantic.

Marvel.com: Widening the lens to the larger cast of characters, which relationships have you enjoyed writing and playing with so far? How has the supporting cast informed your take on the book as a whole?

Chelsea Cain: Honestly, all the supporting cast in this book only exist in relationship to Bobbi. They serve her character, much as she has existed for 40 years to serve other characters. 

I’m not writing HAWKEYE or HOWARD THE DUCK, I’m writing Bobbi’s version of Hawkeye and Howard the Duck. It’s like when you get home from a date and tell your roommate all about the person you went out with—your story is going to say more about you than it does about the date. It’s fun to see Bobbi riffing with other characters because she always gets the conversational upper hand—because she always gives herself the conversational upper hand. It’s one of the things I love about her.

Then there are the corgis. If I have one legacy at Marvel, let it be that I have brought corgis into the [Marvel Universe]. That will be enough.

Marvel.com: Considering where the characters of Bobbi and Hunter are at the start of #7, how does this combination of factors—the cosplayers, the murder, the possibly larger conspiracy, the possible supernatural effects of the Bermuda Triangle—hit them? How do they react?

Chelsea Cain: Bobbi is focused on solving the murder and unraveling the conspiracy that brought her onboard. Hunter is focused on not annoying Bobbi.

Marvel.com: Last but not least, for those considering buying a ticket on this luxury liner and coming aboard with issue #7, what’s one more thing you’d want them to know to persuade them to take the proverbial gangplank on-board?

Chelsea Cain: It’s actually a great entry point to the story. There’s been a murder. On a nerd cruise. Bobbi has to investigate. Things are going to get worse before they get better. And there are some jokes. 

Also, many of the nerd cruise regulars who make cameo appearance in #6 will begin to play more important roles. You can jump right in, and enjoy the ride. The Admiral’s Club will be serving free daiquiris from 5 PM-9 PM.

Board MOCKINGBIRD #7 by Chelsea Cain and Kate Niemczyk for high adventure on the high seas, coming September 14!

Writer Chelsea Cain details Mockingbird's mission to clean up S.H.I.E.L.D. in her first ever ongoing series!

For writer Chelsea Cain, creator along with artist Kate Niemczyk of the first ever ongoing solo MOCKINGBIRD series, the time has come to place Bobbi Morse in the spotlight. In fact, it had been time for a long while.

“Until [the S.H.I.E.L.D. 50th ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL: MOCKINGBIRD] one-shot she’d never had her own book—and even the one-shot was part of the 50th Anniversary of S.H.I.E.L.D. thing,” Cain, who wrote that book, points out. “She’s been really underserved by the Marvel Universe.  She’s always appeared in other people’s stories, serving their narratives.  So I love the idea of giving her a chance to be the center of a story and to really have some agency.”

Cain did not come to that conclusion shallowly either. Upon taking on the character for the one-shot, the writer quickly felt a kinship for the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and super hero.

“I’m drawn to Bobbi because she’s a terrific character—she’s brainy and cool and confident, and quick with a quip,” she enthuses. “In fact it turns out we have a few traits in common. We’re not big sharers. We’re control freaks. And we’ve both been married to Clint Barton.  I mean, what are the odds?”

While tales of corruption may be familiar in S.H.I.E.L.D.’s history, readers should not arrive to the book with expectation of things being the same old, same old.

“It’s so much more than that, I swear,” the writer promises. “I mean, there are zombies. And corgis. I ask you, have there ever been zombies and corgis in a Marvel comic book before at the same time?

“Truly, the plot of the first five issues is rooted very much in Bobbi’s medical history. [Nick] Fury saved her life with a dose of Super Solider Serum and Infinity Formula, and I really wanted to explore the fallout from that.

“She’s got to go in every week for a medical check-up,” Cain elaborates. “And I loved the idea of this medical clinic for super heroes—a place where they go to get stitched up and get their Prozac refilled. And the waiting room would be full of bored heroes leafing through old issues of ‘Us Weekly.’ Would Bobbi uncover a conspiracy in that sort of environment? Well she is good at ferreting out conspiracies having been subjected to them a number of times herself. Frankly she’s a little sensitive about that. But the books will also show Bobbi on her personal time, and off having Bond-level adventures—the Roger Moore years.”

In order to capture that sense of pop adventure, Cain recognizes that she needs a wildly talented artist to bring her words to life. According to the writer, she more than found that in Kate Niemczyk.

“It was really important to me that we find someone who could equal her in talent and style,” she explains. “Kate draws really beautiful, strong women. It’s kind of her specialty. Bobbi is sexy—and she’s comfortable with sex—and I want to show that and at the same time avoid objectifying her. She’s strong. She’s physically competent. And Kate can draw a woman in a metal bikini and thigh highs and somehow make her look completely in control and badass. So obviously we’re going to get along fine.”

If fans feel not quite convinced, the writer has plenty more to offer:

“There are a dazzling array of guest stars in this book, including Lance Hunter and Clint Barton. And of course we recognize many heroes in the medical clinic and I violate all kinds of HIPAA laws revealing their personal medical information. As for villains, look for the London Hellfire Club to make an appearance as well as an evil A.I.M. splinter group. I’m a sucker for A.I.M. They’re so adorable in their yellow suits.

“With zombies,” she adds for good measure. “And corgis. But not zombi corgis. That would be weird.”

MOCKINGBIRD by Chelsea Cain and Kate Niemczyk soars in 2016!

Read our interview where she talks about the role of Bobbi Morse and watch Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D' Tuesday nights!

Things are heating up on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” now that Adrianne Palicki has entered into the fray as Agent Bobbi Morse. From breaking her cover as an agent of Hydra to revealing that she’s Lance Hunter’s ex-wife, Morse a.k.a. “Mockingbird” has shaken up the status quo. From her physical roles to being a spy, Palicki makes it clear to Marvel.com that she’s one Mockingbird that can’t be caged!

Marvel.com: You’re a fan of comics and your brother writes comic books, so clearly you’re no stranger to the realm of super heroes. What was it about the role of Bobbi Morse specifically that appealed to you?


Adrianne Palicki:
It was one of those situations where I knew of Mockingbird, I wasn’t as well versed on her as other comic book characters, but I did know about her. The one thing I really liked about her is that in the world of super heroes, she didn’t have any super powers. She was just a really strong martial artist female character and, much like the Natasha/Black Widow character, she’s the badass. There’s something about that, especially as a female playing such a strong female character, that really drew me to her.

Marvel.com: Obviously there’s a difference between comic book Bobbi Morse and television Bobbi Morse, so did you do a lot of research on the character or did you steer clear so that there would be this unique version in the show?

Adrianne Palicki: I wanted to stay true to her as much as possible with the character. I think that parts of her are very Mockingbird-esque. There are definitely different elements to the character that they bring to the television series and I wanted to make sure that there weren’t people disappointed. It’s one of those things, where I’ve played characters like this before, [such as] Lady Jaye in “G.I. JOE,” and it’s always nerve-wracking because the fans are the ones that really, really make or break anything. It’s their vote that matters, so I wanted to make sure that people weren’t disappointed, and I hope people weren’t disappointed in it. There are definitely elements that I really wanted to bring from the character in the comic books, but I also wanted to make her my own as well.

Marvel.com: You’re no stranger to taking on these very physical roles that require a lot of training and a lot of preparation. Do you find the physical preparation and training and choreography of a fight scene more challenging or a scene that has higher emotional stakes more challenging?

Adrianne Palicki: They’re so different. They’re challenging in different ways. For me, it’s finding the truth in a situation where I would get emotional. That’s a challenge. And the thing about the fighting stuff is that I’ve had so much training at this point, it’s a lot about just staying active and having high stamina. The hardest part about the sequence is doing them over the course of 12 hours and trying not to break. Trying not to get too exhausted. They’re just really challenging in different ways.

Marvel.com: When you first appeared in Marvel’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” you were playing a Hydra agent, revealed to be a member of Coulson’s team. In “John Wick,” you are also a character where the audience and the other characters don’t really know right away what your true intentions are. Could you talk a little bit about what it’s like to play a character who’s playing a character in some sort of spy capacity?

Adrianne Palicki: It’s pretty fun, I’m not gonna lie. I did know that she was working for S.H.I.E.L.D. when I did that but it was fun to play the mean character. To just be a bitch is really fun. [laughs] Of course it’s really hard to be mean to Elizabeth [Henstridge] because she’s the nicest human being on the planet. It’s fun. That’s the whole joy of the acting bit. Just getting to play a character is fun but getting to play two in one? That’s the best.

Marvel.com: You mentioned how much fun you had working with the rest of your cast and it sounds like the rest of the cast has welcomed you with open arms. Do your on-screen relationships kind of relate to those behind the scenes friendships? For example, do you try to spend more time behind the scenes with Nick Blood because of that relationship that you have on-screen?

Adrianne Palicki: We’re a family in the show and I have to be really honest with you, it’s scary coming onto a show in their second season where the relationships have already been developed and people are already in their groups and you feel like the new kid. And I will say, on the show, they had the biggest open arms, the biggest welcome. I feel like I’ve been a part of it from the beginning, thanks to them. When we’re on set, we’re all hanging and laughing and being ridiculous together, which I think helps get us through those more serious scenes and those really long days. We just kind of have fun and have a blast. When I’m on set, I try to spend as much time with, not only the cast, but the crew, as possible.

Marvel.com: You mentioned earlier that one of the things that appeals to you about Bobbi Morse is that she doesn’t have that superpower, but is there a superpower that could come in handy? Even if it was something as simple as being able to change your hair color to assume a new identity so you didn’t have to get hair dye or something like that?

Adrianne Palicki: I would save so much money! [laughs] I want to be able to fly, who doesn’t want that, right?

Marvel.com: That would come in handy and it would be fitting for Mockingbird, given that birds fly.

Adrianne Palicki: Exactly, come on.

Bobbi Morse revealed herself as an undercover Agent working for Director Coulson in tonight’s episode of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” and with her cover blown we can now give you your official first look at actress Adrianne Palicki in her S.H.I.E.L.D. tactical outfit!

“Bobbi Morse is a well-seasoned spy whose ability to slip in and out of undercover situations seamlessly will prove invaluable to our team,” said “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Executive Producer, Jed Whedon. “But her appearance comes as a gut-punch to Hunter, as the history they share is complicated to say the least.”

Along with the first official look at Palicki from next week’s episode, we’ve got the concept art for Mockingbird’s look by the series’ Costume Designer, Ann Foley, 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,” remarked Foley. “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.”

See Bobbi Morse in her full tactical suit in next week’s all-new episode of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” at 9:00 p.m. ET on ABC, and in the meantime stay tuned to Marvel.com for the latest on your favorite Agents and more from Marvel TV!
