Flag of Taiwan

Taiwan, officially the Republic of China, is a state in East Asia. Taiwan is not an autonomous region of the People's Republic of China. The capital city is Taipei.


In 1968, the Winter Soldier was assigned to assassinate Professor Zhang Chin of Taipei City. The plot failed, and the Soldier succeeded only in killing Zhang Chin's wife. Zhang Chin would nurse a deep hatred for the Winter Soldier in years to come, but he did not allow it to affect his work. [1]

After having captured General Fang, the Hulk and Rick Jones brought him to the island of Formosa, where American soldiers were stationed.[2]

Taipei was the location of Starkdynamics, one of the dozens of scientific research centers, branching off from the corporate conglomerate, Stark Industries. The Taipei office of Starkdynamics was destroyed in a vicious attack by the vengeful Ezekiel Stane. The attack killed dozens of people and nearly cost the life of future Stark Industries CEO Virginia "Pepper" Potts.[3]

Bucky Barnes, now donning the guise of Captain America traveled to Taipei City when he learned that a survivor from one of his past assignments, Professor Zhang Chin, had acquired the remains of the android Human Torch and was using his laboratory to turn the Torch into a chemical weapon. [4]
