View full history
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 made her first and only appearance in a flashback in Avengers West Coast #100 by Roy Thomas and Dave Ross.
Moira Brandon has only made the one appearance to date but has subsequently appeared listed among the rest of the members of the Avengers in countless handbooks. She was revealed to have passed away off-panel some time later when she received her own handbook entry in Marvel Legacy #4.
