Peggy Carter Assumes the Captain America Mantle

The Exiles team will meet Captain America Peggy Carter in Exiles #3, out in April.

We always knew Peggy Carter was a superhero, but now she has the official title to go along with it. 

According to Nerdist, the upcoming Exiles series from Saladin Ahmen and Javier Rodriguez, will see the new Exiles team, which includes Blink, Cartoon Wolverine, and an older Kamala Kahn, running into none other than Captain America Peggy Carter, who you may recognize from the Marvel Puzzle Quest game, during their multiverse travels.

This alternate universe version of Peggy exists in a world where she took over the Captain America mantle following Steve Rogers’ death during World War II. Peggy is currently tasked with killing Red Skull (#achievable goals), who controls this version of the world. The Exiles team turns up just in time to help in what sounds like an epic team-up of some of our favorite characters from across Marvel mediums.

Here’s the full official synopsis from Marvel Comics:

There’s a new team of Watchers in town, and they’re cracking down on the Exiles’ interference in the timestream — even if it means the death of everything. Can the Exiles salvage Peggy Carter’s world, fix the Tallus and get back to saving reality before the Time-Eater tracks them down again?
