I know about Dinesh Deol, aka Grid, who is an Inhuman.

Are there any other Indian superheroes in an ongoing Marvel comic series?

As @Valorum pointed out in comments, there are lots of Indian characters in Marvel. Here's the list: http://marvel.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Indians

Also, worth pointing out: Indian gods Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh (Shiva) and Indra have appeared in Marvel comics. Thor even defeated Shiva in Thor #301.

Note: Depictions of gods would look funny to someone who is familiar with those gods in modern Indian media (TV etc), but Marvel's version can't be wrong as they include all the signature features provided by religious texts viz. 4 heads of Bramha, 3 eyes of Shiva.

As I see you are looking for Indian "superheroes" in Marvel, here's the list:

Super Villains:

    I've made a small edit to fix little things but mostly to bump your post back up after Mr. Valorum got a bit excited with tag edits, hope you don't mind!

  • @Valorum - Speaking of tag edits en masse, although they may be necessary housekeeping from time to time (which I can appreciate), is there a way of not having them all jump to the top of the feed all at once when doing this? One of the things I love about this site is the variety of subjects covered. I personally find it kind of boring to see 50 Star Wars or Harry Potter posts all crammed at the top of the feed all of a sudden.
