Agent Peggy Carter is one of my favorite characters in the Marvel Universe. She’s a smart, formidable opponent that shouldn’t be messed with.
Her television show on ABC, Marvel’s Agent Carter showed us more about her than her movie short, or her important role in Captain America: The First Avenger. Hayley Atwell has done a phenomenal job in her role as our favorite S.S.R. Agent and S.H.I.E.L.D. Director.
Operation: S.I.N. – Agent Carter takes place in 1952 when Peggy and Howard head to Russia to figure out what a mysterious energy source is.
This comic starts out with quite the bang. That’s all I want to say without giving away anymore of the story.
What I love most about this comic is another glimpse at Agent Carter and her missions. She’s not just the future Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., but also a field agent. And her field agent skills mean she won’t leave anyone on her team behind, even if she knows they aren’t completely on her team.
This comic i could be better tied to the television shows and movies. Hydra showed up again like it was some great mystery, when Peggy would have known who they were. And same with Howard. So that aspect was a little thin. It felt as though the writers didn’t pay attention to anything that happened in Captain America: The First Avenger.
I’d recommend this to anyone that just wants a quick read about Peggy and Howard off in Russia on another grand adventure. If you can ignore some glaring plot holes, snag this for a low cost comic to read another adventure that includes our favorite SSR Agent and Director of S.H.I.E.L.D.
