Adrianne Palicki will be joining the cast of Marvel’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” The actress will play Bobbi Morse, also known as Mockingbird, on the ABC series, which returns for its second season Sept. 23.

Wonder Woman has those nifty bracelets that deflect bullets but, it turns out, they don’t work against fan attacks.
