As of the latest episode of Marvel's Agents of SHIELD ("Love in the Time of HYDRA"), former HYDRA operative Agent 33 is hanging out with Ward and now has

the ability to change her face at will, using the repaired nano-mask to scan any face - male or female - and look like them. Her origin is very similar to the character Madam Masque in the comics, with her disfigured face hidden by a mask.

Has anyone involved with the show mentioned this connection? It seems to fit with the MCU interpretation of comic characters so far.

    There has been speculation of this, but I've yet to read anything official from Marvel or the studio. – phantom42 Mar 26 '15 at 15:22

At the end of Love in the Time of HYDRA Agent 33 introduces herself to Ward as Kara.

Revealing she is the same Kara Lynn Palamas from the comics, who is named Agent 33.


when Talbot found out she infiltrated his base he called her a "damn mask". TvTropes WMG - Agents of SHIELD

Possibly alluding to her eventually taking on the persona Madam Masque.

    I didn't really see it as Talbot calling her a "damn mask" - more that he was cursing the mask itself. – phantom42 Mar 26 '15 at 21:26
