Alexander Pierce to Singh[src]

History

Soviet Plutonium

"Anton Vanko was a Soviet physicist who defected to the United States in 1963. However, he was accused of espionage and was deported in 1967. His son, Ivan, who is also a physicist, was convicted of selling Soviet-era weapons grade plutonium to Pakistan, and served 15 years in Kopeisk prison."
J.A.R.V.I.S. to Tony Stark[src]

Pakistan, having started nuclear programs since the Cold War, purchased Soviet-era weapons grade plutonium from Russian physicist Ivan Vanko. Vanko's crimes were discovered in 1993, and he was imprisoned for fifteen years in a Russian prison.[1]

Crossing Asia

Bruce Banner went to hide in Asia after leaving his cabin in Bella Coola, Canada. S.H.I.E.L.D. tracked Banner as he crossed Afghanistan and Pakistan heading to India. He managed to keep his transformations under control while crossing the country, only triggered when under attack in Indian territory.[2]

James Rhodes' Mission

"What are you doing?"
"A little knock and talk, making friends in Pakistan."
Tony Stark and Iron Patriot[src]

Pakistan was the location where the Mandarin's broadcasts were tracked following the presumed assassination of Thomas Richards, an accountant for the Roxxon Corporation, despite Matthew Ellis yielded to his demands. Ellis ordered to deploy Iron Patriot immediately in Pakistan, finding false points of origin to the broadcasts.

Rhodes raided a house in Pakistan, as the Mandarin's signal was changed from his actual origin to point other places, and Rhodes received a call from Tony Stark to confirm that A.I.M. was responsible for his rebrand, asking why Rhodes didn't look for him following his disappearance. Stark asked Rhodes' login to access A.I.M. servers, mocking that Rhodes preferred his War Machine codename despite publicly affirming that Iron Patriot was better.

Rhodes went to raid a sweat shop, but this time, instead of a simple ruse to hide the actual location of the broadcasts, an Extremis-enhanced agent of A.I.M. ambushed Rhodes and disabled his armor applying extreme heat. The woman contacted Eric Savin to inform of the success of her mission to acquire the armor.[3]
