"Valentina Allegra de Fontaine. Actually, it's Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine. I know it's hard, but I don't like to repeat myself, so you can just call me Val. But don't call me Val, just keep it in your head."
―Valentina Allegra de Fontaine to John Walker[src]

Finding Recruits

Meeting with John Walker

"You did the right thing taking the serum. Yeah, of course I know about that. And I'll tell you something. It has made you very, very valuable to certain people."
―Valentina Allegra de Fontaine to John Walker[src]

de Fontaine talks with John and Olivia Walker

Following John Walker, the new Captain America, being stripped of his title and military rank due to murdering Nico, a surrendering foreign national and member of the Flag Smashers, de Fontaine met with him and his wife, Olivia Walker, at a bench outside the main courtroom. She introduced herself to the two, then sat down and told Walker that she would have killed the Flag Smasher too, saying the only reason he was punished is because the government had to uphold their laws. She explained that she was aware Walker had taken the Super Soldier Serum, and that he no longer possessed his shield, and that taking the serum had made him very valuable to certain people. She then told him to pick up the phone when she called him. Handing him her business card, in actuality a blank piece of card, de Fontaine left a confused Walker.[1]

Creating U.S. Agent

de Fontaine admires John Walker's new suit

"Things are about to get weird. So when they do, we're not gonna need a Captain America. We're gonna need a U.S. Agent."

With the Flag Smashers defeated, de Fontaine reunited with John Walker and his wife, after he had helped in the fight. While Walker put on his uniform, de Fontaine talked with Olivia Walker about all but one of the remaining Flag Smashers being killed while being transported to the Raft, saying that Helmut Zemo, who intended to destroy all super soldiers, had gotten the last laugh after all. Walker then stepped into the room in a new version of his suit, now all-black. As de Fontaine complimented the suit, she told the Walkers that the world was changing and that people did not need a Captain America, giving Walker the new name of "U.S. Agent" before leaving.[3]


"I would've killed the bastard too. Nobody in there is mad at you about that. I mean, you would've been doing 'em a favor if you'd taken out the whole lot."
