When I was a kid, I did everything I could to get super-powers. I wanted to be a hero. I wanted to be Captain America. Sometimes I fall short.

I spent three years of my life with your kind. Imprisoned. Beaten. On the run. You can never trick me again. No matter whose face you have. I'll kill you every time.

Barbara "Barbie" Morse / Mockingbird as she appears in Marvel's Spider-Man: Webbed Champion

  • Barbara Morse / Mockingbird appears in Marvel's Spider-Man: Webbed Champion, voiced by Kari Wahlgren. Depicted as a teenage S.H.I.E.L.D. trainee under Yuri Watanabe's tutelage, this version sports a nanotech flight suit with artificial golden wings, and is equipped with a pair of battle staves and night vision glasses. She is also a great admirer of the Avengers, a fan of Black Widow, and Mary Jane Watson's best friend, who is aware and supportive of her identity as Tigra, as well as her secret romance with Peter Parker (whom Barbara is also aware of and supportive of his secret as Spider-Man). She first appears as Barbara Morse (or Barbie for short) in "City of Heroes, Part 3: American Cats", where she is introduced as Marcus Thompson's high school crush-later-girlfriend, who showed admiration of his work as a party entertainer, and begun dating him after she learned of his double-life as the superhero vigilante Lion King. She makes her first official appearance as Mockingbird in "The Parker Errand", where she is assigned by S.H.I.E.L.D. to assist She-Hulk in seeking evidences to prolong J. Jonah Jameson's prison sentence. This also leads her and She-Hulk to team up with Peter / Spider-Man (who was at the time seeking to expose the truth about his parents Richard and Mary Parker's death) in hunting down Truman Marsh (who possessed evidences of Jameson's involvement with the Parkers' death by the hands of the Red Skull) and a A.I.M. squad sent by MODOK to obtain the Tesseract. Mockingbird eventually succeeds on her mission, which resulted in Jameson being sentenced to prison for life. She makes silent appearances in "Sons of Fathers", during Harry Osborn's funeral, on which she is shown comforting Mary Jane over Harry's death. And later in "Seeds of Life", assisting S.H.I.E.L.D. on battling the Oscorp robots under Madame Masque's control, and later restraining an defeated and apprehended Norman Osborn, whom she punches in the face. She later makes minor appearances in the "Legendary Universes" arc; appearing in the end of "Part 3: Unlimited Speed", where she overhears of Spider-Man and his team's adventure in Sonic the Hedgehog's universe, and later appearing in "Part 6: Ultimate Alliance", where she is among the heroes who unite against the Regent's army of Negative Zone insects. She can be shown taking out some insectoids alongside Watanabe, Black Widow, and Tigra as well as Arcee, Sticks the Badger and Rey Skywalker. She is later shown in the end of the episode with Lion King, and the couple is shown greeting Knuckles the Echidna.
    • She also appears in A Marvel Christmas Carol, voiced again by Kari Wahlgren. She is shown to have joined Spider-Man's team of the Champions following the battle against the Regent's army. She is first seen battling alongside the superheroes against the invading Frost Giants led by Ymir in New York City, before helping prepare for the Christmas parties in the F.E.A.S.T. facilities. She and Mary Jane Watson also advise Cassie Lang (in response of her suggesting they should invite Vincent Dawson and his family for the ceremony) that Vincent is having trouble with his abusive boss Franklin Todd, prompting Peter Parker, Cassie, Groot, Cloak and Dagger to consult Doctor Strange. During Peter's act as the Ghost of Christmas Present, Barbie's Mockingbird alias is shown dancing with Lion King in the Christmas parade. Later during Cloak's act as the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come/Future and Dagger's second act as the "Soul Chain", Barbie is shown in the alternate future as one of the teenagers showing little sympathy over the fate of the dead man (Todd) being taken away Rocket and Hulk, while her Mockingbird is shown working with the Avengers and Champions on stopping the riots near Todd's workplace. Later in the epilogue, Barbie is shown exchanging gifts with Mary Jane, and dancing with Marcus Thompson. She later watches joyfully as her best friend and Peter share a kiss under Groot's mistletoe.
  • A version of Mockingbird appears in Marvel: All New, All Different Chronicles, voiced by Colleen Villard. This version (renamed Barbara "Barbie" Danvers Rogers) is presented as Liz Danvers Rogers' 13-year-old younger cousin and the daughter of Steve Rogers' brother Bucky and Carol Danvers' sister Sharon.
