Super-Team Family: Black Canary and Mockingbird

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is coming to the small screen this month.  As I understand it, the core cast of agents, besides Clark Gregg's Agent Phil Coulson, are all brand new characters created for the pilot.  That was disappointing to learn, given that S.H.I.E.L.D. has so many terrific existent characters.  Mostly, I thought a Joss Whedon-helmed spy series for television would be the perfect launching point for one of Marvel's female superheroes who has yet to grace movie theaters.

I thought maybe the Jessica Drew Spider-Woman could lead the show, or possibly a pre-Ms. Marvel Carol Danvers.  But the best option, I thought, was Mockingbird.

Which segues adequately enough with today's post: another one of Ross' DC/Marvel custom crossover covers from the Super-Team Family blog.  Below Ross has depicted Black Canary and Mockingbird teaming up to save their bow-wielding beaus!

Ross points out the similarities in character design, motif, and taste in men, so much so that Dinah and Bobbi could be alternate universe versions of the same character.  This cover, like all of Ross' work, is outstanding.  It helps when he uses a Black Canary model drawn by the dude, Steve Rude.
