this is not my origin story. i'm not a super hero. i'm not a mutant. i've never even been to the baxter building. i have a phd in biochemistry and i know 80 different ways to kick you in the head.
at a first glance, one wouldn't imagine that barbara harker had gone through what she had. she and her brother lived the relatively charmed life. both of their parents were successful in their own right, earning a very comfortable living for the small family. henry is the older of the two children by just over 14 months. most parents would have argued that their closeness in age made them extremely competitive. however, they would beg to argue. aside from the occasional squabble over something trivial, bobbi and henry got along swimmingly.

even from the youngest of ages, bobbi just had that look about her. she was the picture perfect child. always smiling, hardly ever crying. she likes to believe that those characteristics followed her into adulthood, but that's still up for debate. her mother fawned over her baby girl, placing her in pageants all over the state. it ended up being a decent way to earn some scholarships. life for the harkers was nearly blissful, but what is life without a healthy dose of tragedy nowadays?

their father, richard, had been known to deal with some of the worst of the worst in his line of work as a district attorney. after taking up a position with the department's organized crime and gang division, the everyday threat only increased. his very first case only solidified that. richard and their mother, mary, were killed in a car accident. it was deemed an accident, though reports back showed that they both had consumed a great deal of alcohol. anyone who knew them knew that neither of them were heavy drinkers. it's a mystery that has always somewhat consumed their family. from then on, bobbi attached herself wholly to her brother.

the pair of them were sent to live with their uncle leonard and aunt faye. bobbi loved them, though she struggled a lot with her parents' death. at only eleven years old, it was hard for her to process. she spent a lot of time locked in her room, mostly crying and mostly harboring a lot of angst. the only person she ever wanted to be around was her brother because for a while he was the only thing that made her feel like home. adjusting to new ways of life was slow. it was a process that nothing in the world could have ever prepared her for, though now she likes to believe she's much stronger for it.

bobbi had that rare combination of not only being beautiful; she was actually very intelligent. she managed to balance sports all year with different clubs, mostly taking quick to almost anything science related. it wasn't exactly a shock when she graduated in the top percentile of her class, ultimately having her pick of anywhere to continue her education. with ties to columbia, it was the obvious choice for undergrad. college agreed with her in the sense that she liked having the certain freedoms that she didn't have back in high school. she opened up a lot more, while still staying focused on her studies. there was always a clear goal in mind to take that next step for her phd. bobbi had it embedded in her brain that she wanted to do research that could potentially save lives. spending hours in a lab wasn't odd to her, it was just as comforting as going to the gym or a yoga class. the science of living things just fascinated her to no end.

after she earned her doctorate, she took a position on the peace corps research team. bobbi is a real stickler for the preservation of the environment. she's also not afraid to shout it from the rooftops. there were a few incidents. maybe a time or two when things got out of hand. she was arrested for being amongst a group at the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong cops at a protest. the charge was disorderly conduct, nothing too extreme. it wouldn't prevent her from getting any jobs, but it did get her a few questioning looks from friends and family members. however, breaking the news to her aunt and uncle brought a small smile to their face. they were actually quite proud of her for standing up for her beliefs.

she can't exactly remember what made her decide to go into teaching. all she knew was that she learned that she had a real knack for it. the transition took some classes and student teaching on her part and being that she had her phd, it wasn't hard to find a job. leman manhattan preparatory school came across her by chance. well, it was more like she knew a friend who knew a friend that got her an interview. they offered her a position teaching high school biology almost immediately. someday she hopes to go back to research, though for now she seems very content. it's work that she can actually have fun with and the students really enjoy her class.

her move to west village was very recent. she still makes trips into queens to spend time with len and faye, more so after len's battle with cancer and journey into remission. bobbi doesn't want to miss a single second of spending time with her loved ones. her loyalty and love is fierce. it's something that could never be paralelled.

Barbara Morse, SHIELD Agent 19. Earned the name Mockingbird after a penchant for taunting her opponents in battle. Expertly trained spy, secret agent, skilled acrobat, biochemist, and master martial artist. Partnered up with her now ex-husband Clint Barton (Hawkeye) on SHIELD missions and eventually the pair joined the Avengers together, heading up a West Coast division with the likes of Iron Man, Wonder Man, and Tigra.

Sacrificed her life to save that of her team and Clint and was ultimately resurrected.

She's been subject to experimental trials and injected with a mixture of the same Super Soldier Serum that was used on Captain America and the Infinity Formula that slows aging. All injuries and ailments were healed, however it still remains uncertain of the effect it could have on her biology. The serum is responsible for her enhanced physical strength, agility, and healing.
