Agnes Cully, better known by her stage name Whitney Frost, is the main antagonist of the second and final season of ABC TV series Marvel's Agent Carter. Originally seen as a beautiful actress and loving wife, she is truly a highly intelligent and power hungry nuclear physicist who is obsessed in experimenting with Zero Matter for her own benefits.
She is portrayed by Wynn Everett.

The woman who would later be called Whitney Frost was always thinking, calculating, studying. Finding herself able to make household repairs at a young age, Agnes Cully experimented in electronics and constantly hoped to improve even her own repairs.
Though her mother discouraged her, telling her that her looks would be more helpful, Cully continued to develop her intellect, but used her beauty as a secondary option to get what she desired. By always studying and memorizing, acting became easy and Frost grew famous. Frost learned to turn that skill to her advantage and could manipulate powerful men to do her bidding. She was able to garner a favor from Joseph Manfredi after not speaking to him for years.
Frost is ambitious, but knows when to forego a photo-opportunity when something more important is at hand.
Powers and abilities
- Genius Level Intellect: At a young age, Agnes Cully developed skills in electronics. During World War II, she designed a machine that could output ten times the energy produced by the fast-neutron reactor.
- Master Scientist: Frost used her scientific genius to make Isodyne Energy prominent, but due to the sexism of the 1940s, allowed her husband Calvin Chadwick, to be named its owner. Frost experimented to gain control over her powers to use them intentionally, instead of accidentally. Frost was able to take a casual glance at blueprints of different inventions of Howard Stark and understand what she saw.
- Most of the movies in which Frost starred are references to the comics version of the character:
- "The Woman with the Golden Mask" is a reference to her signature mask in the comics.
- "Tales of Suspense" is a reference to the comic book series in which she first appeared.
- "The Nefarious Daughter" is a reference to her birth name, Giuletta Nefaria, and her being the daughter of Count Nefaria.
- Several shots of Whitney's dressing table, particularly the shots that show the mirror, show that there are two golden drama masks on the wall behind her, a nod to her comic book name.
- Whitney Frost is the first villain in Marvel's Agent Carter to possess actual superpowers, unlike Johann Fennhoff whose hypnotizing abilities were simply a talent he had.
