About Agent Peggy Carter
Agent Peggy Carter is no damsel in distress. She is a trained fighter, a female counterpart to Captain Rogers. Even with her deadly training, she is a woman and in love. Comic books proclaim her as an American, but the movies have given her a British accent and backstory; in either case, she is smart, savvy and an equal to her love interest, though some audiences don’t seem to recognize that about her. In a fair fight, she could probably take down the captain herself!
Agent Carter goes through the heartache of losing Captain Rogers, or so she thinks, but still manages to fight on and champion her cause. She is loyal and brave, a credit to her country. Peggy is also carelessly stylish in both books and movies. Meld together her traits and a picture of a passionate and courageous woman emerges, a woman willing to fight and die for what she believes in. She is a worthy character to cosplay in support of empowerment or just for fun!
