When she broke free from her Soviet masters, The Widow was also offered a chance to repent by becoming both an Avenger and a freelance operative of S.H.I.E.L.D. Bobbi Morse was a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who created her Mockingbird identity as a way of exposing corruption in the ranks of the organization.

When the kids in Avengers Academy go through a “Scared Straight” program, who better to oversee it than the Thunderbolts?
Exploring an idea from the mind of Ed Brubaker, Academy writer Christos Gage and Thunderbolts scribe Jeff Parker are teaming up beginning in August for a three-issue crossover that sends the Academy kids into The Raft for a “Scared Straight” program courtesy of the Thunderbolts.
