“Agent Carter” follows the life and adventures of Agent Peggy Carter after the war. Despite being in a good position, she soon finds herself marginalized when all the men return home from the war. Peggy then continues to work at the covert Strategic Science Reserve, the predecessor to the modern-day S.H.I.E.L.D. organization, as an agent. However, even if she has an administrative position, she constantly moonlights and goes of on secret missions with inventor, Howard Stark. She also tries to balance work with life, as she tries to settle down in America by herself, and she also has to deal with her own personal issues, especially as she had just lost the love of her life, Captain America (Steve Rogers). However, no agent is alone, and she works with two agents, Agent Thompson and Agent Sousa.
