Mockingbird question

Warning - Secret Invasion Spoiler for those of you waiting on the trade. If you haven't read Secret Invasion and plan on doing so - skip this post. Thank you.

Question: It's not my fashion to post current comic commentary on this blog (unless it's part of Paper Comic Death Watch), but somone told me that Mockingbird comes back at the end of Secret Invasion. Has this been explained? Didn't the West Coast Avengers go down to Hell to save her soul or something.

End Spoiler.

I seem to recall that they did, too. And I also remember a Thunderbolts annual where Hawkeye leads the Thunderbolts to hell to save mockingbird, but in the end it turned out to be Patsy Walker. But before all that, Mockingbird's staff is thrown from out of nowhere to save Clint from some demons (at least that's how I remember it).

Unless it was a Skrull Mockingbird who was in hell. :P

I suspet that it is a Skrull in Hell is how they will explain it.

Mockingbird that is in Hell is a Skrull who was so much into her Mockingbird persona that she really thought she was Mockingbird or something like that.

Maybe Mockingskrull really fell in love with Hawkeye and wanted to save him?? ;)

Or maybe they will just ignore it as they did with many such mistake??

Reno - Yeah, that's the story! I remember that scene with the staff now that you mention it.

You know, back in the day (70s/80s) Marvel used to do a good job at explaining such inconsistencies. Now they just seem to gloss over them. I guess they could argue, we'll that's a plot point most people aren't familiar with, so we going to overlook it for the sake of the nice scene of Hawkeye and Mockingbird getting back together.

My problem is, the beauty of their reunion is worth something ONLY if everyone thinks of her as being dead all this time and to not explain the incidents inbetween her death and return sort of makes it like she was at the Circle K all this time.
