"Captain Carter: The first Avenger."
Baron Mordo to Doctor Strange[src]

Captain Margaret Elizabeth "Peggy" Carter was an Avenger and a founding member of the Illuminati. In 2018, Carter fought in the Infinity War, and aided in defeating Thanos during the Battle of Titan. She subsequently voted to execute Doctor Strange as he used the Darkhold to dreamwalk, resulting in a multiversal incursion.

Years later, Carter presided at a hearing when an alternate Doctor Strange was arrested by Baron Mordo, on suspicion he was similarly dangerous to their universe's Strange. Before they could pass a vote to have this Strange killed, their headquarters were breached by Scarlet Witch. Carter and her fellow Illuminati confronted her, although Scarlet Witch killed Carter by bisecting her with her own shield.


The Illuminati


Originally one of the members of the Avengers, Peggy Carter was approached by Stephen Strange to join the Illuminati, a group of powerful individuals that would make the difficult decisions no one else could, due to her status and power.[1]

Infinity War

When Thanos waged war, the Illuminati banded together to stop him, except for Stephen Strange, who used the Darkhold to look for solutions in the Multiverse by dream walking. Strange's method was successful, but he continued dream walking, which destroyed another universe so he confessed himself to the Illuminati. Strange renounced the Darkhold, and the group found the Book of Vishanti, which they used to defeat Thanos. Carter watched as Black Bolt used his scream to kill Strange, looking distraught as it happened. Carter, along with the rest of the group, covered up the event, making it seem as Strange was killed in the battle with Thanos.[1]

Trial of Doctor Strange

Years later, the Illuminati met together in the tribunal room to meet Doctor Strange, who had arrived in their universe. As Baron Mordo introduced the members, he mentioned Carter's status as the first Avenger. Strange mocked them, including making fun of Black Bolt's name and his helmet. Black Bolt threatened Strange because of his arrogance towards them. Carter made a warning of Black Bolt's power, which Strange ignored. Irritated by his arrogance, she flung her shield at him.[1]

Massacre of the Illuminati

"Haven't you had enough?"
"Oh, I could do this all day."
Scarlet Witch and Captain Carter[src]

When sirens started going off signalling a breach in the headquarters, Carter and the rest of the Illuminati saw Scarlet Witch, on their security cameras. They watched as she destroyed the Ultron Sentries. She and the Illuminati then went out to confront her. After Black Bolt and Mister Fantastic were brutally killed, Carter and Captain Marvel fought her together, with Maximoff throwing Carter's shield aside. She then lifted a statue and threw it into Captain Marvel, making her crash through a wall. Carter then took Maximoff by surprise by bashing her with her shield. When Maximoff asked if Carter had enough, she responded she could do this all day. Carter then threw her shield at Maximoff, but she caught it with her powers and threw it back at Carter, sending it through her torso and cutting her in half.[1]


Carter possessed a commanding presence. Her serious, no-nonsense demeanor was shown when she protested against Doctor Strange's disrespect towards the Illuminati by flinging her shield at him. Another instance of her stoic demeanor was shown when she stood by and calmly watched Black Bolt disintegrate Doctor Strange, knowing that it was for the greater good. She also advised Strange not to underestimate her teammates, showing an evident loyalty and respect towards her colleagues.

Carter has expressed a great deal of courage and combat skill, being willing to face Scarlet Witch toe-to-toe, even though she knew that she was no match. She was able to stand on her own against Maximoff for a short while before ultimately being killed by her.

Captain Carter fighting Scarlet Witch with her shield and jetpack
