‘Captain Carter’ #1 coming to Marvel Comics in March 2022

Peggy aka Captain Carter struggles to find her footing in a modern world that’s gotten a lot more complicated…

Press Release

Marvel Comics has revealed a new series on the way and it features a What If character from the recent Disney+ television show otherwise known as Captain Carter. Teased yesterday with a British shield, the series is written by Jamie McKelvie with art by Marika Cresta with a target release date of March 9, 2022.

“I’m as big a fan of the Captain Carter we’ve seen onscreen as anybody, so I jumped at the chance to create our own version,” McKelvie said. “I’m having a great time exploring what it would be like for Peggy to wake up nearly 80 years after the end of the war. The world remembers the myth of Captain Carter, but to Peggy the reality was just yesterday. Now she finds herself in a nearly unrecognizable new world, how does she fit in? Can she be the super hero people want her to be? Exploring these questions has been really exciting, and I love the world Marika and I have come up with. I can’t wait for people to see Marika’s pages – there’s so much life and energy to Peggy and the rest of the cast, and the action scenes are stunning.

So what’s Captain Carter #1 about?

A reality where Agent Peggy Carter took the Super-Soldier Serum instead of Steve Rogers is turned upside down when the World War II hero is pulled from the ice where she was lost in action decades before. Peggy struggles to find her footing in a modern world that’s gotten a lot more complicated – cities are louder, technology is smarter and enemies wear friendly faces. Everyone with an agenda wants Captain Carter on their side, but what does Peggy want? And will she have time to figure it out when mysterious forces are already gunning for her?

Check out two of the covers for the first issue by McKelvie below.
