Moira Brandon was a rich and snotty former movie star and bombshell who fell on hard times with the advent of "talkies" because she had an unappealing voice due to years of smoking. Becoming a recluse in her lavish mansion that she had bought with the money she made as a star of silent pictures, she sold her mansion to Hawkeye, Mockingbird and Black Goliath for the Avengers to use as a West Coast base.
Moira Brandon was technically created Roger Stern and first appeared in a very minor role in The Avengers #246. She made her first proper and only notable appearance years later in a flashback in Avengers West Coast #100 by Roy Thomas and Dave Ross.
