When it comes to memorable Captain America: The First Avenger characters, of course there are the likes of Cap, Peggy and Colonel Chester Phillips [Editor’s Note: Who?], however, there are none perhaps more memorable than Cap’s main ragtag group of fellow soldiers, The Howling Commandos. Unfortunately, little’s been seen of the crew since the 2011 Marvel film – the most recent appearance being a brief cameo in the season two opener of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – but that all changes this week when the group returns for the first time in too long on the next episode of Agent Carter.
Don’t believe it? Well just watch this clip:
While we totally understand why the show has been opting to portray a 1940s world that doesn’t respect Peggy and her abilities because of her gender, we won’t deny that it’s really nice to see Dum Dum and the rest of the gang finally give the super spy the respect she damn well deserves. With any luck, maybe this ends up being the mission that finally proves her worth to the rest of the members of the S.S.R.
It’s hard to believe Agent Carter’s already entering the second half of its first season after just starting to really get into its groove the last couple weeks. But, perhaps that’s why the show was always planned as an 8-episode event. It’s always better to leave a party early before you overstay your welcome… though it’s hard to imagine us ever growing tired of the adventures of Ms. Carter.
Agent Carter airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on ABC.
