20th Century

In 1942, the Colombian Mining Company was briefly taken over by mobster Legs Cochone until the camp was liberated by the Vision[1].

Modern Age

The government was unable or unwilling to provide the citizens with food, healthcare, schooling and water, thus local cocaine dealer El Caiman built wells and provided the services, not distributing the drug in his turf - at least that was El Caiman's version. The drug was then distributed to the United States of America.During the Evolutionary War, Bogotá was raided by the Eliminators, armored agents of the High Evolutionary who wanted to stop the drug for their own reasons, caring little about collateral damage to the civil population. Their attack coincidentally found Punisher there, tracking El Caiman. Punisher and El Caiman reluctantly allied against these hi-tech assassins, and they managed to stop them, but El Caiman was killed.[2]

The "Brotherhood Bogotá stronghold"

Explosa was the only known member of the Bogotá Cell of the Brotherhood. When their headquarters was raided by US military agents, she blew up the complex, leaving her fate unknown.[3]

Juan Carlos Valencia a Colombian cartel boss daughter Juliana informed him it was discovered she had a rare type of cancer. Juan Carlos spent most of his fortune in an auction for the Extremis virus, which, if programmed properly, would save Juliana. As soon as he was informed Iron Man was looking for the Extremis kits sold in that auction, Valencia hired the criminals Living Laser, Vibro, and Firebrand to protect him in case Stark tried to get to the kit. When Iron Man arrived at his mansion and was barely slowed down by the hired thugs, he confronted Juan Carlos, who explained to him the situation, and that he only wanted his daughter's survival. Stark agreed to help him reconfigure the Extremis to guarantee Juliana's survival, in exchange Juan Carlos was imprisoned.[4]

Some street level super heroes like Punisher, Cloak and Dagger have been active in Colombian territory taking down some of the most fearsome drug cartels in the country.
