      -- Mockingbird was an undistinguished SHIELD agent who played the role of "damsel in distress" in the 1970s Ka-Zar stories and then went undercover to root out SHIELD corruption, culminating in her accidentally being shot up while masterfully exposing a corrupt agent whose hobbies included dressing in HYDRA outfits and wielding Baron Strucker's Satan Claw. In the early days of the West Coast Avengers, though, she was capable of taking on all manner of major villains and deducing or concealing things that flew right by the likes of Iron Man, her hubby Hawkeye, and experienced detective Moon Knight.

    Yeah,but OTOH, her scientific skills in her earlier appearances disappeared completely. This happened because she was around Hank and Tony, and compared to Hank and Tony she's not that smart. This also happens to Zemo whenever he's around the Fixer.


I dunno on Zemo. It's been pointed out several times that, unlike his father, Helmut isn't much of a scientist anyway. He needed Primus to use Arnim Zola's genetic secrets and otherwise relied entirely on his father's creations, like Adhesive X, Particle X, and so forth. His only scientific training was an engineering degree, and he's yet to actually invent anything, let alone make huge leaps in optics or chemistry like Heinrich.
