Captain America: Civil War
Nick Fury assigns her to watch over Steve Rogers as his next door neighbor and it is implied that the two have some feelings for each other. Natasha Romanoff attempts to get Steve to ask her out but it fails. When Nick Fury is shot at Steve's apartment, Sharon arrives, revealing her cover. She then takes care of Fury until help arrives but he seemingly dies. Later she is part of a team ordered to hunt down Steve in the investigation of Nick Fury's death. It is unknown how much she did to help them. When Steve hacked into the speakers and revealed HYDRA's plans, she participated in helping Steve and stating true to S.H.I.E.L.D.. She later went on to join the CIA after S.H.I.E.L.D's collapse.
- "Margaret Carter was known to most as the founder of S.H.I.E.L.D. But I just know her as Aunt Peggy. She had a photograph in her office: Aunt Peggy standing next to JFK. As a kid that was pretty cool. But it was a lot to live up to, which is why I never told anyone we were related. I asked her once how she managed to master diplomacy and espionage at a time when no one wanted to see a woman succeed at either. And she said, "Compromise where you can. Where you can't, don't. Even if everyone is telling you that something wrong is something right. Even if the whole world is telling you to move, it is your duty to plant yourself like a tree, look them in the eye, and say, 'No, *you* move'.""
