Krishna Udayasankar, comic book enthusiast, Avengers fan, and author of The Aryavarta Chronicles, a modern retelling of the Mahabharata, makes up her list of who could be whom, if there were an Indian version of The Avengers.

* Iron Man: Dronacharya, the master of weaponry, gadgets and strategy.

* Captain America: A hero from another time, one with great sorrow in his heart, come back to fight for justice. That’s Amba, through and through.

* Hulk: Most people see Hulk as brute strength, but to me he’s a man in conflict with himself and his tremendous multiple potentials. For that reason, I see him as Mahabali, or even Ravana.

* Thor: This is by far the easiest, for even mythological parallels would suggest that our Thor is Indra, with his thunderbolt.

* Nick Fury: Vishwamitra, who rallies Rama and the brothers (or other Avengers) to fight against evil.
