History[]

Tara King was a young secret agent who worked in partnership with John Steed of The Avengers following the departure of his former partner Emma Peel. Younger and more inexperienced than Mrs. Peel, Tara was hand picked to partner Steed by his mysterious superior, Mother. Both brave and resourceful, she proved a definite asset to Steed's operation.

Notes[]

Tara King originated in The Avengers TV series, and appeared in the Avengers strips in TV Comic #877 (5th October 1968) to #1077 (5th August 1972) as well as the TV Comic Holiday Special 1972 and The Avengers Annual's published in 1968 and 1969 (dated 1969 and 1970). She also appeared in the US published limited series Steed & Mrs. Peel: The Golden Game, published by Eclipse Comics from 1990-1991, though her only real role in this was as a kidnap victim needing to be rescued by Steed and Peel. She made a brief cameo appearance, along with the other Avengers girls, in the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Century 2009.
