Agent Carter: A Marvel One Shot

Updated on June 1, 2017

Agent Carter starts at the terrible moment when Captain America's aircraft is crashing to the ground. She never heard from him again.

One year later, Agent Peggy Carter is working in data analysis and code breaking for Agent Johnn Flinn. When a call came on that The Zodiacs location has been found, Peggy does not get sent out into the field. She explains to Agent Flinn that she is bored and wants to help catch fugitives. She is brushed off and undermined by Agent Flinn and is told to let the boys do the work.

The men leave the office for a drink and another call comes in about The Zodiacs whereabouts. Although it is suggested to bring 3-5 men, Peggy goes solo. She effortlessly takes down everyone at The Zodiacs hideout.

At work the next day Agent Flinn is furious. He accuses Peggy of breaking protocol and tells her she was hired only out of pity because she was grieving.

Shortly after, Agent Flinn gets a phone call from Howard Stark (the man who made Captain America's shield and found the missing tesseract). Flinn is informed that Agent Carter will be running S.H.I.E.L.D. It was Flinn's job to give Agent Carter the news and to sound honored while doing so.

After Agent Flinn gives Agent Carter the news, he offers to help her with her belongings. Agent Carter replied, "as always I do not need your help".

      A Peggy Carter movie would be amazing. I have not been able to get ahold of her series. I also love Natasha (Black Widow)! She knows how to get what she needs.

      A full length movie featuring Peggy Carter may be a possibility for considering. Recently there was a plan to revive the Honey West character for a full length movie with glamorous Reese Wetherspoon in the staring role. Honey West was a fictional L.A. private detective of 1950's pulp fiction however the televion series was set in the 1960's, lasting only one season as anothr female sleuth Doctor Catherine Gale was screened on another channel.

      Well, Peggy Carter is definately a 'trailblazer' in this particular genre of secret agent. I mean this in the context of the era in which the series is set (ie. the cold war) and the status of Woman undergoing advancement from domesticity to 'action gal' There must be a great deal of material to broach for Peggy Carter to investigate. Wonder Woman has been doing IT more than half a century now.

      I wish she had her own full length movie giving us her back story. I find her so fascinating.

      I'm wondering how Peggy Carter aquirred her fighting skills. In order to take on and utterly humiliate five male adversaries, it takes a lot of agility, speed and cunning. To disarm an opponent of his knife, gun or whatever she'd have most likely used karate. Judo for restraining holds. Perhaps just good old fashion 'street fighting' and the will to win was Peggy's forte.

      What strikes me in the presentation of Agent Carter is the authenticity of the era in which it is set. Brings back memories of the mid 1960's Mission Impossible and the Champions, both of which featured women of strong character and not dependent on men for their livelihood.
