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".

      Actually, there are similarities in the Agent Carter / Honey West comparison.

      Both Ladies reflect the era of the times they were active in the Cold war. Whilst capable of carrying out the missions assigned to them they still effectively maintained a feminine air even in dangerous situations.

      I thought Honey West was quite adept in the role of an investigator however her television series only went one season. When is the next Agent Carter series?

      Cannot help thinking of being reminded of the Hollywood actress portraying Lois Lane in the first movie version of Superman (1951). Phyllis Coates was the strong willed reporter on the daily planet who could take on any males, firstly with her distinctive scream as her war cry. Also she was not averse to slapping any guy who got fresh with her.

      I think Agent Carter is just as relevant now as during the television series as illustrating the fact that Women have the powers to be a force to be reckoned with !

      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.

      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.
