Marvel Preview: Agent Carter Teams Up with Lady Sif in S.H.I.E.L.D. 50th Anniversary Special #1
Peggy Carter was technically never an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., but since she became a fan favorite of the MCU, she has also become instrumental to the origin of the superspy organization. Now, in honor of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s 50th anniversary, Agent Carter returns as a "world-weary crack shot" and teams up with Lady Sif and Dum Dum Dugan in a new Marvel one shot. 

Agent Carter Teams Up with Lady Sif in S.H.I.E.L.D. 50th Anniversary #1

Writer Kathryn Immonen, best known for the award-winning Marvel Comics series Runaways, spoke about the reasons behind Peggy's popularity as a character:

Opening quote
Peg's lived through interesting and complicated times and it makes sense that the way she deals with events (and their aftermath) is equally complex. And while she's not technically super-powered, the way she goes about her business is her cape and mask analogue. Beyond that, what's not to like about a slightly world-weary crack shot with an over-developed sense of responsibility and the uncanny ability to keep a hat on her head?

In this issue, Peggy advises Dum Dum on a new recruit, and expresses some disapproval of the current S.H.I.E.L.D. organization in the process:

Opening quote
She's not so impressed, I don't think. S.H.I.E.L.D. is probably operating a little too far outside of jurisdictional oversight for her taste. She's a renegade but she will always remember how to wear the uniform.
Closing quote
