Mockingbird and The Secret Six



When Tony Isabella, comic legend and creator of Black Lightning among others, suggested this team-up, I had to smack my head because I had never thought of it!  Every incarnation of the Secret Six took orders from a mysterious figure known only as Mockingbird after all... It's a natural! I have been enjoying seeing Mockingbird in live action on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and with word of a spin-off, it looks like we will be seeing even more of her.  Perhaps if the Suicide Squad film is a big hit, we will see the Secret Six hit the silver screen as well one of these days.

Very clever.

The combination of these images is seamless. Looks PERFECT!

And to have it suggested by a great comics pro too--that's amazing!

Brilliant idea. I only wish it had been the original Secret Six. I'm a huge fan of Silver Age S6; not so much of any of the post-Crisis incarnations.

Thanks, guys!

Let me add my own humble accolades. The only way you could possibly top this example of superb-ness is to have Spidey meet ABC's Cobweb!

@ Bygrinstow:

Take credit where credit is due you, dude. ;-)

Haha, what a great combo. I'm sorry I sold my 60s-era Secret Six issues now...and the Action Comics Weekly series that attempted to solve the secret of "Who Is Mockingbird"?

Adapting the 60s series to even a limited-run TV series would be a great idea IMO.
