History

The Statue of Liberty is one of the most iconic landmarks in the United States. Situated out in Liberty Island in New York Harbor it was a gift to the United States from France. It was erected on October 28, 1886. Since the early 1940s it has been the site of many confrontations among many of New York City's super-human population.

The Statue of Liberty was used as the headquarters of the Sub-Mariner's first invasion of the surface world.[1] However, the Sub-Mariner was driven from the structure and sent into retreat following a battle against the Human Torch.[2] In 1942, the statue was destroyed by Japanese spy Moppino with an atom expansion ray, however it was quickly repaired.[3]

Traveling to Liberty Island hoping to lay low for awhile, since he was wanted for the callous murder of Jonathan Powers, Daredevil was followed there by the Jester, who attacked him once more. During the fight, a police helicopter arrived and when one of the police officers fell out, Daredevil saved his life. However, the officer Johnson injected him with a sedative and took DD into custody.[4]

At the Statue of Liberty, Captain America battled against Nighthawk, and managed to stop the villain from stealing the statue with his Hawk-plane.[5]

The Black Panther veered his flagship over the Statue of Liberty on his return trip to the Avengers Mansion from Wakanda.[6] The African leader has used this particular route more than once, as he later became intercepted and became involved with Spider-Man's battle with Sturgeon and his legion of dinosaurs. In the aftermath, a pterodactyl was webbed to the Statue of Liberty.[7] The Avengers also repaired the Statue after it had been damaged in another battle. During the team's repair effort, the media learned that a romance had developed between the Vision and the the Scarlet Witch.[8]

During the battle against the Super Skrull, Ms. Marvel was punched so hard she went flying toward the Statue of Liberty, before she was rescued by Spider-Man, who snagged her with a web line and pulled her back to the cruise ship.[9]

The Frightful Four came to the Statue of Liberty, a regular meeting place when Spider-Man and the Human Torch would work with each other, in a bid to lure Spider-Man to this location. Once defeated the night watchers Earl and Roy, they snuck into Fort Wood to prepare themselves for the ambush. Once ready, they flamed a message over the Statue that Spider-Man would think was from the Human Torch. He arrived here with his guard down, but the 'Human Torch' he came to meet was really Electro in a specially made suit created by the Wizard that imitated the Torch's powers. The rest of the Frightful Four then joined the fight and easily over-powered the unprepared Spider-Man. After the fight is ended, the Wizard revealed his intentions of posing as Spider-Man to get close enough to the Fantastic Four to destroy them.[10]
