Tuesday’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. offered sneak peeks of a few varieties:Not only did viewers get another glimpse of Avengers: Age of Ultron, but the first teaser for the upcoming miniseries Agent Carter also made its debut. Watch it below.

While the show sounds promising, man, that tagline is awful. “Sometimes the best man for the job…. is a woman.” Come on. We know Agent Carter kicks ass. The flashback at the beginning of this season’s S.H.I.E.L.D. premiere offered a peek at an Agent Carter I already absolutely want to watch a show about. What’s more, Agent Carter is a spinoff of a show in which women routinely kick ass. So the fact that line even has to be uttered is kind of ridiculous. (Thankfully, the teaser does hint at plenty of awesome 1940s action.)

Set to premiere in January when Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. takes its midseason break, Agent Carter will revisit Haley Atwell’s Peggy Carter immediately following Captain America: The First Avenger, as she balances an office job with the Strategic Scientific Reserve and secret missions with Howard Stark, who has been framed for selling weapons on the black market.
