"Do as Peggy says."
While I loved Peggy in the first Captain America film, I didn't really fall in love with her until Agent Carter. So of course I went back and looked at every single comic she had ever been in! I absolutely look up to her.
"I know my value. Anyone else's opinion doesn't really matter."
Origin: Introduced in 1966, Peggy joined the French resistance as a teenager during WWII before teaming up with Captain America. She was also a major part of S.H.I.E.L.D. (in the cinematic universe she was the founder).
Powers: Unlike most of the characters in the comic book world, Peggy doesn't have any superhuman powers or mutant abilities. But that's never mattered. She's smart and she's brave and she gets the job done!
"How many times can we be tested? How much harder do we have to try? And for what? To prove what?"
I look up to Peggy. She's determined, intelligent, and inventive. She doesn't reject femininity to prove herself. She lets her skills and her actions do all the talking for her. And if people aren't listening, then it's their own fault and she makes sure to get them out of the way.
