Agent Carter is kicking butt and taking names — all in the name of science.

ABC has released an extended sneak peek at Marvel’s midseason drama, which stars Captain America’s Hayley Atwell as the titular agent who deals with being marginalized once WWII ends. In the wake of losing her love, Steve Rogers, Carter navigates the world of the SSR, the forebear to what we now know as S.H.I.E.L.D.

In the clip, Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) tasks Hayley with tracking down his inventions, which have apparently fallen in the wrong hands. Though Stark leaves behind his butler, Jarvis (James D’Arcy), to help Peggy, she seems to handle herself just fine.

Agent Carter will debut in January 2015.
