Valentina Allegra de Fontaine. Actually, it's Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine. I know it's hard, but I don't like to repeat myself, so you can just call me Val. But don't call me Val.
~ Valentina introducing herself to John Walker

Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (also known as Valentina or Val for short) is a recurring antagonist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

She is a supporting antagonist in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and a minor antagonist in Black Widow. She is an associate of an organization interested in using powerful individuals. She has recruited John Walker and made him the U.S. Agent, although she probably didn’t intend to. She has also recently hired Yelena Belova to kill Clint Barton, whom she believes to be responsible for her sister, Natasha Romanoff's death, unaware she did it to herself.

She is portrayed by Julia Louis Dreyfus in her first villainous role.

Personality

Valentina Allegra de Fontaine is a very influential and manipulative figure. Her knowledge of how the United States government operates enabled her to convince John Walker to work for her. Additionally, de Fontaine was able to switch the narrative of Natasha Romanoff's sacrifice and frame it as a murder, convincing Yelena Belova that Clint Barton killed her, and sending her on a mission to kill him.

Appearance

Valentina is a middle-aged woman with black hair and purple streaks — tied in a bun, and brown eyes. She wears a dark blue coat clasped by a belt, a dark red sweater, dark red leather gloves, a necklace, a pair of round earrings, and high heeled boots. She is also seen wearing a dark red coat and a pair of sunglasses.

Biography

Past

Not much is known about Valentina’s past, except that sometime she would work as an associate for an organization that would have interests in using powerful individuals.

Finding Recruits

Meeting with Yelena Belova

Maybe you'd like a shot at the man responsible for your sister's death.
~ Valentina to Yelena, assigning her to kill Clint Barton

During her time working for the organization, de Fontaine met Yelena Belova, a trained assassin and spy and the surrogate sister of Natasha Romanoff, recruiting Belova into her organization. Following Romanoff's death in late 2023, Belova visited her headstone in Ohio to mourn while on holiday leave. De Fontaine visited Romanoff's grave at the same time to meet Belova, making her presence known by blowing into a handkerchief, joking that she was "allergic to the Midwest".

Belova called de Fontaine desperate for coming to her while she was on holiday, asking for a raise. De Fontaine joked that she wanted one too, before telling Belova that she had a new mission for her. Handing her a tablet, de Fontaine informed Belova that her next target would be the man responsible for Romanoff's death, revealing an image of Clint Barton. As Belova stared at the tablet, which displayed an image of Barton, de Fontaine remarked that he was cute.

Meeting with John Walker

You did the right thing taking the serum. Yeah, of course I know about that. And I'll tell you something. It has made you very, very valuable to certain people.
~ Valentina to John Walker

In 2024, following John Walker, being stripped of his title as Captain America and military rank due to murdering Nico, a surrendering foreign national and member of the Flag Smashers, de Fontaine met with him and his wife, Olivia Walker, at a bench outside the main courtroom in the Capitol. She introduced herself to the two, then sat down and told Walker that she would have killed the Flag Smasher too, saying the only reason he was punished is because the government had to uphold their laws. She explained that she was aware Walker had taken the Super Soldier Serum, and that he no longer possessed his shield, and that taking the serum had made him very valuable to certain people. She then told him to pick up the phone when she called him. Handing him her business card, in actuality a blank piece of card, de Fontaine left a confused Walker.

Creating U.S. Agent

Things are about to get weird. So when they do, we're not gonna need a Captain America. We're gonna need...a U.S. Agent.
~ Valentina giving John Walker his new moniker, U.S. Agent

With the Flag Smashers defeated, de Fontaine reunited with John Walker and his wife, after he had helped in the fight. While Walker put on his uniform, de Fontaine talked with Olivia Walker about all but one of the remaining Flag Smashers being killed while being transported to the Raft, saying that Helmet Zemo, who intended to destroy all super soldiers, had gotten the last laugh after all. Walker then stepped into the room in a new version of his suit, now all-black. As de Fontaine complimented the suit, she told the Walkers that the world was changing and that people did not need a Captain America, giving Walker the new name of "U.S. Agent" before leaving.

    • They both are associates.
