Ikaris and Sersi's Wedding
India was visited by the Eternals on their mission to kill the Deviants and help humans advance. Two of them, Ikaris and Sersi, had their wedding there and were dressed in festive customary attire while the other Eternals watched in joy.
A Country Divided
In 1947, following the aftermath of World War II, the United Kingdom granted independence to India, bringing an end to British colonial rule. However, the British Empire also decided to divide India into two nations – India and Pakistan. The Partition of India also included the Partition of Bengal, where the Indian province of Bengal was split into the Hindu-majority West Bengal, situated in India, and the Muslim-majority East Bengal, situated in the newly formed nation of Pakistan. East Bengal, having been renamed East Pakistan, eventually seceded from Pakistan and became the nation of Bangladesh.

The Ten Rings built an illegal diamond mine in the Western Ghats, near a race in which Abby Rose was representing Stark Industries' racing team. Rose was interviewed and the race begun, while Tony Stark investigated the mine and got attacked by the Ten Rings.

Crossing the Border
Banner came across a platoon of bandit mercenaries while crossing the border to India, who attacked him and triggered his transformation into Hulk. He easily defeated the bandits, attacking them using their own vehicle as a blunt weapon.
Hulk caught a rocket and, to protect a group of children attacked by the mercenaries, jumped with it instead of throwing it back, exploding the rocket in mid-air. As the remaining mercenaries were about to kill the children, Hulk smashed the ground beneath the bandits, leaving the scene with the children unharmed.
As War Machine, Rhodes traveled to Mumbai, where he had to battle a group of heavily armed terrorists, having to lift his car over the air to protect civilians. Some of these civilians mistook Rhodes identity for that of Iron Man.
Recruitment of Bruce Banner
Bruce Banner sought refuge in the slums of Kolkata to avoid being captured by the United States Armed Forces. There he used his medical knowledge to help people, while struggling to control his transformations.
In 2012, a little girl pleaded for help in order to treat her sick father, going with Banner to an empty cottage in the outskirts of the city, where the girl escaped through a window to leave Banner alone. The girl turned out to be a ruse to lure him to an encounter with Natasha Romanoff, sent by S.H.I.E.L.D. in order to recruit him. Romanoff let him know that S.H.I.E.L.D. did not lose track of Banner, and even avoided that other parties found him, as Nick Fury trusted Banner and left him free.
Romanoff explained the purpose of Banner's mission, to find the Tesseract given its emission of Gamma Radiation and Banner's status as the world's foremost authority on that field. While trying to coax Romanoff about Fury's real intentions, and if he wanted to trap Banner inside a cage, Banner angrily shouted at Romanoff, prompting her to aim at him with a gun. Banner then showed a calm behavior, and convinced Romanoff to lower her weapon to avoid his transformation into Hulk that would destroy the place. Romanoff dismissed S.H.I.E.L.D.'s tactical response teams from intervening, and Banner accepted S.H.I.E.L.D.'s request.
Project Insight Threat
- "Let me ask you a question: what if Pakistan marched into Mumbai tomorrow, and you knew that they were going to drag your daughters into a soccer stadium for execution. And you could just stop it, with a flick of the switch, wouldn't you? Wouldn't you all?"
"Not if it was your switch."
- ―Alexander Pierce and Jakuna Singh[src]
Alexander Pierce used different examples to justify his actions regarding the approval of Project Insight for HYDRA in order to stop disorder, chaos and war all over the world. One of his examples was a potential invasion of the city of Mumbai in India by Pakistan, dragging hostages into a soccer stadium for public execution.
Pierce asked Councilman Jakuna Singh of the World Security Council what would he do in a situation like that if some of the hostages were his own daughters, and he could put and to that situation just pressing a button. Pierce extended the question to the rest of the Council members, but Singh defiantly answered that he would not do it if it was Pierce's and HYDRA's button.
Fleeing from Kilgrave
In need of Sufentanil in order to neutralize Kilgrave's powers, Jessica Jones attempted to reach Doctor David Kurata, only to find out that he had fled New York City and relocated to New Delhi, India in order to hide from Kilgrave.
In 2016, Tony Stark attended a wedding in India. When Peter Parker was drowning in the lake after he had encountered Vulture, Stark activated remotely Mark XLVII and saved him. Via the suit, Stark told Peter Parker to stop pursuing the Vulture and his crew, shouting accidentally at the party. When Stark finished the call, he drove away from the party, cutting the connection with Parker.
