In Review: Captain Carter (2022) #3 (of 5)

ENTER IRON MAN!

Synopsis: ENTER IRON MAN! Captain Carter has plenty on her hands already, wrestling with a betrayal from the very organization she thought she could trust. Is Tony Stark here to help? Or will he be just another complication at a time when Peggy’s life is full of them?

 

The Story

Picking things up from the last issue. Lizzie Braddock has been attacked in her apartment and as she gets the better of her attackers she learns that one of them is a member of S.T.R.I.K.E. which confirms her and Captain Carter’s suspicions of a conspiracy. To that end, Lizzie heads over to see Carter and the two women formulate a loose plan of action. While Lizzie works with Peggy’s neighbor Harley to hack the Prime Ministers’ computer. Peggy goes to work as normal, but finds herself under attack from members of her own team. As she makes her escape she has a chance encounter with Tony Stark, which proves to be quite helpful.

 

Artwork

Marika Cresta continues to knock it out of the park. We get some great action beats right from the opening page. The panels where we see Lizzie fend off her assailants in her apartment our nicely done. There was almost a vintage James Bond quality to the way in which Cresta framed the visuals.

We also get a nice sequence of action where Tony Stark makes a last-minute intervention, which helps out Captain Carter.

 

Overall

Jamie McKelvie continues to deliver the goods in this modern spy thriller. As far as the story goes. This feels like the third season of Agent Carter that we never got. I loved the fact that Peggy’s neighbor just happens to be a conspiracy theorist and hacker all in one. Sure it is kind of convenient, but in this instance, it serves the story really well.

I also enjoyed the meeting between Tony Stark and Peggy. It will be interesting to see if that relationship will be similar to the one that she had with his father Howard Stark.
