Agent Galahad is the name of several fiction characters serving as the protagonist of the Kingsman franchise, part of the Millarworld, published by Marvel Comics under the companyâ€™s imprint Icon Comics, and by Image Comics. The first two Galahads, Gary and Jack London, were created by artist Dave Gibbons and writer Mark Millar for the 2012 comic book miniseries The Secret Service, Jack being a gentleman spy who recruits his nephew Gary to become an agent of MI6; after Jack's death, Gary assumes the Galahad mantle and saves the world. In 2014, these characters were adapted by Jane Goldman and Matthew Vaughn as Gary "Eggsy" Unwin (portrayed by Taron Egerton) and Harold "Harry" Hart (portrayed by Colin Firth) in the feature film Kingsman: The Secret Service, changed in adaptation to be unrelated, with Harry having been a friend of Eggsy's deceased father Lee, recruiting Eggsy to the independent intelligence agency Kingsman; the characters return in the 2017 sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle, and will return again in the 2020s in Kingsman: The Blue Blood. Due to the success of the Kingsman film series, the comic book mononym Gary was retconned to also be named Gary "Eggsy" Unwin in the 2017 one-shot The Big Exit, before again returning in the miniseries The Red Diamond (2017â€“2018) and Big Game (2023), in which he respectively partners up with SASS agent Kwaito and vigilante Mindy McCready.
The 2021 First World War-era prequel film The King's Man introduces the first Agent Galahad, Pollyanna "Polly" Wilkins (portrayed by Gemma Arterton), a founder member of Kingsman and the former maid and romantic partner of Kingsman leader Orlando, created by Matthew Vaughn and Karl Gajdusek.
The characters have received a generally positive critical reception.
In The Secret Service (2012), Gary is recruited by his uncle, Caractacus "Jack" London, known as Agent Galahad, to work for the British Secret Service. After Gary is put on an extensive three-year training course, performing assassinations and arresting a Colombia drug lord, Jack is killed by cellphone entrepreneur James Arnold for sleeping with his girlfriend, unaware of him being a spy or Jack's knowledge of his plans to use a satellite signal to make the poor of humanity slaughter each other in order to solve the overpopulation problem. Having witnessed his uncle's death through his spywear eyeglasses, and on learning Arnold's plans are supported by the elitist high-level members of MI6, as the new Agent Galahad, Gary recruits his fellow trainees to an assault mission on Arnold's base, hidden inside a mountain in Switzerland. After ambushing and battling Arnold's troops, and freeing the celebrities he had kidnapped (so that they wouldn't die when the satellites activated), Gary engages in a fist fight with Arnold's henchman Gazelle, before leaving to confront Arnold. Arnold activates the satellite signal and waits for the people to slaughter each other, but instead, due to one of Gary's colleagues having changed the frequency, people worldwide begin to have sex with one another. Gary then kills a confused Arnold. In an epilogue, Gary reads his uncle's will, revealing that two-thirds of Jack's estate will go to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution and the British Heart Foundation, the final third going to Gary's mother, informing Gary to take good care of his gadget-laden car, or he will "come back and bloody haunt him." As Gary reports to Kingsman Headquarters, Sir Giles briefs him about a mission that concerns "trouble in Moscow".
