Top 25 Fictional DC Resident: #2 Agent 99 & Maxwell Smart
Names: Maxwell Smart & Agent 99
Occupation: Spies for CONTROL
Agent 99: Oh, Max, how terrible.
Maxwell Smart: He deserved it, 99. He was a Kaos killer.
Agent 99: Sometimes I wonder if we’re any better, Max.
Maxwell Smart: What are you talking about, 99? We have to shoot and kill and destroy. We represent everything that’s wholesome and good in the world.
As top spies for CONTROL, a little-known US spy agency formed to battle the dastardly KAOS, Maxwell Smart and 99 have everything spies could need- shoe phones, coworkers stashed in mailboxes, a red convertible, the Cone of Silence, lipstick remotes, you name it. With Max as the bumbling lead agent and 99 as his competent assistant who constantly saves his bacon, they thwarted KAOS’ plans to take over the world for 5 years.
After years of saving the day after Max nearly lost it, 99 actually married the guy. They had twins, a boy and a girl. Max’s shoe phone is now on exhibit at the International Spy Museum.
