Her solo TV series might be over, but Peggy Carter still has a few more adventures up her sleeve. Thanks to Marvel’s animated series Avengers: Secret Wars, fans will get to see (or at least hear) star Hayley Atwell finally reunite with Captain America.

We heard last year that Atwell would reprise her role for an episode of Disney XD’s Avengers: Secret Wars animated series, and now we have the first clip from the episode. If you’re wondering how the 1940s heroine manages to team-up with modern-day Marvel heroes, you can thank Kang the Conqueror for all the timey-wimey-ness. The episode promises the past and future will collide, as Peggy and young Howard Stark unite with Iron Man and Captain America to protect the time stream.

Though any chances of a revival are likely long gone at this point, Agent Carter was a fantastic show. This is obviously not the return fans would prefer, but it’s still encouraging to see Marvel bring Atwell back for a bonus mission for fans. And she even gets a chance to see Steve Rogers one last time, too. If hearing Atwell save the world gets you jonesing for more, the entire two-season run of Agent Carter is heading to Hulu.

Atwell makes her appearance in the Avengers: Secret Wars episode “New Year’s Resolution,” which airs at 8:30 a.m. on December 3 on Disney XD.
