Agent Carter, otherwise known as Peggy Carter, must balance the routine office work she does for the Strategic Scientific Reserve (SSR) while secretly working with Howard Stark on missions. She is Captain America's right hand man.
Carter is an officer with the Strategic Scientific Reserve. Atwell said it was "thrilling" to explore "the backdrop of this male-dominated world, where women are still in the workforce, unspoken for and struggling to find a place outside the home" and how it affects Carter, who must deal with this along with the missions she receives. Butters has said that "her superpower is the fact that other people underestimate her. And she often uses that to her advantage, because she doesn’t have superstrength".
Speaking about the influence that the apparent death of Steve Rogers has on Peggy, Atwell explained that "It's only been a year and she's grieving him and I think what keeps her going is he was the greatest person she ever knew – even before he took the serum and became Captain America. She knew his character and she saw a kindred spirit in him. So I think she's grieving the loss of him but she's also determined to make sure that his work wasn't in vain. That gives her a tremendous amount of determination to carry on despite the obstacles that she comes across".
