"All right, everybody, it's Great Central."

Grand Central Terminal, also referred to as Grand Central Station, is a subway terminal located in New York City.


Battle of New York

Thor and Hulk in Grand Central Terminal

In 2012, the Avengers battled the aliens known as the Chitauri in New York City. During the battle, Thor and Hulk worked together to take down a Leviathan. Hulk stabbed a piece of sheet metal into the alien’s back and Thor hit it with Mjølnir and an electrical strike caused the alien to crash through the iconic window of Grand Central Terminal. Hulk and Thor went inside the Terminal to see what happened and as Thor was looking, Hulk punched him aside.[1]

Clean Up

Afterwards, 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, 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.[2]

Remembering Heroes

While the Avengers were recognized for their role in saving the United States and the world at large, 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 2015, a statue to commemorate the first responders of the New York City Police Department, Fire Department of New York City, and United States Army National Guard was built atop the building, right above the spot where the Avengers first assembled to fight the Chitauri.[3]
