Grand Central Terminal, also referred to as Grand Central Station, is a subway terminal located in New York City.
When the Avengers were battling the Chitauri during the Battle of New York, Thor and Hulk worked together to take down a Chitauri Leviathan. Hulk stabbed a piece of sheet metal into the creature's back and Thor hit it with Mjølnir and an electrical strike causing the creature to crash through the iconic window of Grand Central Terminal.
Following the Battle of New York, Adrian Toomes and his crew obtained a contract with the City of New York to start a salvaging operation for the alien technology that was left behind. While salvaging the Chitauri Leviathan in Grand Central Terminal that was slain by Hulk and Thor, the Department of Damage Control led by Anne Marie Hoag, arrived and took over the operation. Hogg ordered all materials gathered from the clean up to be turned over to the department. However, Toomes and his crew kept a few remaining trucks that had already left the terminal.
While the group known as the Avengers were known throughout the United States and the world, the City of New York felt they should remember the other heroes who put their lives on the line during the Battle of New York. By 2024, a statue to commemorate the first responders of the New York City Police Department and the Fire Department of New York City was built atop the building, right above the spot where the Avengers first assembled to fight the Chitauri.
In an alternate 2018, the survivors of the quantum virus; Hope van Dyne, Hulk, Peter Parker, Bucky Barnes, Okoye, Sharon Carter, Kurt Goreshter, and Happy Hogan went to the Grand Central Station, New York City, to find a train to take them to Camp Lehigh, New Jersey.
While in the Station, the group split up, after not listening to Parker’s warning. Carter and Hogan were ambushed by a zombified Clint Barton, who killed Hogan. Barnes and Okoye were attacked as well by a zombified Sam Wilson, with Okoye killing him. Inside the train tunnel, Parker got the train started and was saved by the Cloak of Levitation from zombies. As the train left the Station, a zombified Steve Rogers jumped on it.
- In the What If...? episode What If... Zombies!?, the Zombie Outbreak Group takes a train to Camp Lehigh in New Jersey, however, the real Grand Central has no trains connecting to New Jersey.
