Here are ten Marvel ladies ready to leap from the page to the screen
Miss America - Supporting character in the proposed "Agent Carter" TV series and "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."
Madeline Joyce Frank was one of the first female costumed heroes in comics, and was certainly Marvel's leading lady in the Golden Age. The proposed "Agent Carter" television series will certainly detail the post-Captain America days of World War II and the inclusion of Miss America as an attempt to create a costumed adventurer to replace Cap would be a great story point for the new series. Who better to understand the trials of being a symbol of American heroism than Peggy? The story of a female Golden Age hero navigating her way through the sexism of the '40s would be an interesting take on the usual superhero story and could be a central focus of "Agent Carter" as Peggy goes it alone while trying to build the S.H.I.E.L.D. organization and keep Cap's legacy alive. It would be pretty cool to see the central architects of Marvel's cinematic universe be two classic female characters. Current Miss America, America Chavez could even appear in the modern day "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." as the contemporary bearer of the Miss America legacy. Miss America binding two eras of S.H.I.E.L.D. together would be a fitting tribute to Marvel's first lady.
