15Peggy Carter (Agent Carter)
Like Diana Prince, Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) was introduced to the world in a superhero period piece - the origin story of Captain America (Chris Evans). Since her appearance in Captain America: The First Avenger, she’s gone on to front her own TV series (Agent Carter), telling
the story of how SHIELD was created. Like Diana, she has to forge her own path in a male-dominated world, and is constantly working harder than the men around her to prove herself capable… and boy is she capable!
A spy, a linguist, a fighter, a charmer, and investigator, and so much more, Peggy keeps pushing forward with humor and grace, and with no hesitation when it comes to fighting her own battles. Her show may have been canceled after only two seasons, but there are still plenty of fans who would love to see her back on the air and finishing the story that she started.
