Fan Fiction starring Hawkeye, Black Widow, Grifter and Mockingbird

Fan Fiction #1 starring Marvel’s Mockingbird


UPDATED 7-10-17

All writers get writer’s block. How to combat it? By pretending to be Marvel’s Mockingbird, Hawkey, and Black Widow and bashing HYDRA skulls.

Why I love Mockingbird for fan fiction

I mentioned how I use role-playing games and fan fiction to get the creativity flowing.

Here’s the first fanfic I generated with this method. I call it “Doppelgangers.”

Based on an old “Mutants and Masterminds, 3rd Edition,” adventure, I team Mockingbird with Hawkeye, the Black Widow, and Grifter from the old Wildstorm comic, “Wild C.A.T.S.” They’re working as agents of SHIELD against an old foe in the new age — HYDRA.

Marvel’s eight-part “Mockingbird” solo series inspired me to use that character. Written by Chelsea Cain and drawn by Kate Niemczyk, the series is a quirky but thoroughly engrossing read.

I got into it because manbabies were upset with the last issue’s cover, on which Mockingbird wears a shirt reading, “Ask me about my feminist agenda.”

If the manbabies hate it, it must be good. Cain and Niemczyk’s series is indeed excellent. It also ties into the events of Marvel’s “Civil War II.”

You can pick up the first volume trade paperback of Mockingbird now. Volume two is available for pre-order. I hope they include the comical letters columns and issue intros!

But enough about my newfound love of Mockingbird!
