The Illuminati consist of members like Reed Richards, Captain Carter, Bolt, Captain Marvel & Professor X. Hayley Atwell’s character Captain Carter is not a newly introduced character in the MCU.
As she was already introduced in Captain America: The First Avenger. She played the role of Peggy Carter, one of the agents of SHIELD & later on she becomes director of SHIELD along with Howard Stark. What If? series explored her possibility of becoming Captain Carter instead of Steve Rogers. She also reprised her role as Captain Carter in Multiverse of Madness but this character was not in the same universe as What If.
Captain Carter was brutally killed by Wanda Maximoff in Dr. Strange 2 film. Many fans were upset with the Illuminati being killed very easily by Wanda in seconds. Even Hayley Atwell thinks that her character storyline went on a different path than expected.
