An MCU Creation Is About to Make Her Debut in Marvel Comics’ Official Continuity
The roster for Marvel’s multiverse-themed Avengers Forever reveals a fan-favorite MCU creation will be making her long-awaited comic book debut.
Captain Carter is making the leap from the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the pages of the Avengers Forever comic series.
Preview art provided by Newsarama shows Carter will be joining the ranks of the Avengers in their new multiverse-themed series. This marks the first time Captain Carter will appear in comic book form since debuting in the premiere episode of Marvel’s What If…? animated series on Disney+.
Avengers Forever will be written by Jason Aaron with art by Aaron Kuder. The series spins out of the events of Free Comic Book Day: Avengers/Hulk #1 and the upcoming Avengers #50, which doubles as a massive 750 issue anniversary celebration. It focuses on a new team of Avengers that are gathered from across the multiverse to take on the threat of the Multiversal Masters of Evil. They are led by the young Ghost Rider, Robbie Reyes, who has been a central figure of Jason Aaron’s Avengers series. Also present is a new variant of Tony Stark who became an archeologist instead of an inventor and has taken on the mantle of the Invincible Ant-Man. Other notable variants featured in the series include Amadeus Cho as the Hulk, Beast, Black Knight, Monica Rambeau, Wonder Man, Vision and the Scarlet Witch.
This is not the first time that a variant of Peggy Carter has played a prominent role in Marvel’s comic book multiverse. In the wake of Captain America: The First Avenger and Agent Carter, the character’s popularity skyrocketed and led to her taking on the mantle of Cap in the Marvel Puzzle Quest app. This incarnation of Carter went on to join the Exiles alongside variants of Bucky, Ms. Marvel, Wolverine and Iron Lad. After facing off against Kang the Conqueror, the team quietly disbanded. Notably, this variant used the codename of Captain America, distinguishing Peggy Carter from her What If…? counterpart.
Most recently, the original Peggy Carter returned in the pages of author Ta-Nehisi Coates’s acclaimed run on Captain America. Taking on the guise of the Dryad, Carter reunited with Steve Rogers to take down the Red Skull and the forces of Hydra, reforming the Daughters of Liberty to aid their cause. The series caused controversy for the similarities between the Red Skull and conservative professor Jordan Peterson. While it’s doubtful Captain Carter’s inclusion in Avengers Forever will have quite the same effect on fans, the character has previously been the target of Twitter outrage, despite remaining a popular figure in the Marvel Universe.
