History:
In 1919, Margaret Carter was born in a small shire outside of London. Her early years were met with strife, being raised by her mother as her father fought in the Great War only to succumb a few months after from his injuries. Needless to say, when the second rolled around, she jumped at the chance to defend both her country and her fallen father. Excelling at intelligence operations, the British government quickly placed her in covert operative training to act as an infiltrator and saboteur. Soon, she had passed her courses with flying colors and became an Ally spy against the Germans. Given the codename Agent 13, she infiltrated HYDRA during Red Skull's uprising. Having found crucial intel on the creation and use of the Super Solider Serum, she returned to the British government immediately with her findings. With her identity now compromised and the US leading the way with scientific advancements, she was shipped overseas. There she became an acting American general as well as an intelligence officer for the Strategic Scientific Reserves where she was ordered to find the perfect candidate for the Allies' own Super-Solider initiative- Project Rebirth. After a wide search, she met a frail kid from Brooklyn with the the heart of hero- Steve Rogers. From then on, she worked as his liaison/handler through the entire transformation until he was shipped out across Europe. The two met up off and on again throughout the war forming a close friendship as they attempted to foil Red Skull's plans for world domination and destroy the Nazi super weapon. However, during the final push against HYDRA and the Nazi forces, the two were separated- Peggy only able to look on as Steve boarded Schmidt's plane. That would be the last time she would see that kid from Brooklyn- he selflessly sacrificed his life to save the world from Red Skull's super weapon, crashing the craft into Northern Atlantic waters.
After that event, Peggy was surprised how deeply she mourned the loss of Rogers. She tried to continue on, fighting the war from her desk as she always had, but it didn't feel right, not after witnessing what Steve had accomplished. In both an attempt to honor his legacy and maintain her bond with the Super Soldier, Peggy decided to follow as closely in Steve's footsteps as she could. With some persuasive coaxing and physical arm twisting, the government allowed her to take the closest thing to the super solider serum they would allow, one that kept the patient youthful and spry for years to come- the Infinity Formula. In exchange, Ms. Carter was to dawn her own uniform of stars and stripes (as well as his signature shield) and become Lady Liberty to continue to sale of War Bonds and troop morale until the war had ended. Even after the war's close, she continued to be a symbol of Western freedom, promoting the American way and endorsing US products up until the 1960s. For a time, she felt as if she was making a difference, but sadly those feelings were fleeting. When the conflict in Vietnam arose, she was deployed as always but quickly succumb to severe injuries from a hidden explosive, sharpnel taking her right eye. It was then she realized war had changed as had the government her and Steve had known. Unable to back the futile war, she hung up the shield and costume that had kept her hope alive for so long and retreated to S.H.I.E.L.D. where she took up responsibility as director. She upheld her position for many years with little falter, however, with the 21st century in sight, the government felt Peggy's Old War mentality wasn't able to keep up with the tech-age. Though bitter, she didn't question their orders and appointed Nick Fury to be her replacement in the mid 80's.
Currently, Lt. Carter still works as a S.H.I.E.L.D intelligence officer, spending most of her days behind a desk reading files or training new agents.
