Bosnia and Herzegovina is a country in Southeastern Europe located on the Balkan Peninsula.


Bosnia and Herzegovina was formed in 1992 following the dissolution of Yugoslavia into several smaller countries. Two years prior, in 1990, S.H.I.E.L.D. agent John Garrett was sent on a mission to Sarajevo, now part of present day Bosnia, where he was wounded by an improvised explosive device that left him with critical injuries. Garrett requested medical assistance, but despite his loyalty to the agency, his medical evacuation was denied with a series of excuses.

At that very moment, Garrett decided he would treat the agency the same way it treated him. He managed to survive, placing his intestines back inside his body and closing the wound with duct tape, having to be implanted with bio-mechanical parts by Cybertek in order to survive.

Due to Garrett's experience, he joined HYDRA as one of its covert operatives while the organization rebuilt itself inside S.H.I.E.L.D.[1]

Behind the Scenes

  • Despite not having been explicitly mentioned in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the country of Bosnia and Herzegovina is identifiable due to Sarajevo being its capital city. However, the scenes and mentions of Sarajevo thus far have been during its time as a city in Yugoslavia, prior to the formation of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
