"And where's 'here' exactly?"
"A place that represents second chances."
Spider-Man and J. Jonah Jameson[src]

The Statue of Liberty is a neoclassical sculpture on Liberty Island in New York. In 2024, the Statue was rebranded as the Liberty Avenger and redesigned to hold Captain America's Shield, along with being restored to its original copper color. However, it was damaged by Green Goblin during a battle involving Doctor Strange and multiple Spider-Men.

Post-Snap[]

Survivors of the Snap group together

Following the Snap, New York City became a desolate city. By 2023, New York City residents had formed a marina and surrounded Liberty Island with their boats, sticking together as one community.[4]

Post-Blip[]

Following the Blip, the marina disbanded as people were reunited with their loved ones and returned to their homes in the city. In 2024, the The Daily Bugle newspaper ran a classified ad advertising an upcoming "Seance for Mysterio" event to be held at the base of the statue, where participants were hoping to speak with the deceased spirit of Mysterio.[5]

In 2024, the Statue of Liberty had undergone extensive renovation by The Lady Liberty Restoration Foundation, with its oxidization removed in order to restore the statue's original copper coloring. Additionally, a replica of Captain America's Shield was added to the Statue and was marketed to tourists as the Liberty Avenger. However, this addition was met with criticism by locals, who deemed it "ridiculous" and preferred to leave the Statue as it was. A poll showed that 33% supported the renovation while 67% opposed.[1]

In November 2024, a fissure in the Multiverse caused universe-displaced people to enter the universe. Due to this, Peter Parker met two alternate universe versions of himself and used an Inter-Dimensional Portal to get onto the Statue. There, Parker broadcasted a video through the The Daily Bugle apologizing for bringing the universe-displaced villains to their world.

They were then confronted by Electro, Sandman and Lizard, who each wanted the Macchina di Kadavus for themselves. Parker gave the Macchina to Ned Leeds and Michelle Jones through a portal, but after being unable to close it and getting attacked by Lizard, Leeds and Jones came onto the Statue as well. After escaping Lizard, Leeds opened another portal, in which Doctor Strange came out of and assessed the situation. Parker gave the antidote to Lizard, reverting him back to Curt Connors. Meanwhile, Sandman and Electro were both restored to their original selves, the latter with Otto Octavius' help.

As Strange went to confront Parker, they were all attacked by Green Goblin, who grabbed the Macchina and placed a Pumpkin Bomb inside it, causing it to detonate and free the unstable spell. This caused a multidimensional rift and tremor that made the scaffolding on the Statue collapse, as well as the shield. Jones and Leeds both fell off, but were saved by Amazing Spider-Man and the Cloak of Levitation respectively.

Doctor Strange casts another spell

Parker confronted Green Goblin and prepared to kill him in retribution for his aunt's death, but was stopped by the oldest Spider-Man. Amazing Spider-Man then gave him the antidote and the youngest Spider-Man injected it into Green Goblin, reverting him back to Norman Osborn. Parker then exchanged goodbyes with the Spider-Men, and as Multiversal beings started returning to their universes, he told Strange to recast the spell, but make it so that everyone in the universe would forget about Parker's existence. Parker then had an emotional farewell with Jones and Leeds before Strange cast the spell and Parker's identity was erased.[1]

Surtur[src]

In an alternate timeline, the Fire Demon Surtur came to Earth and flirted with the Statue of Liberty thinking it was alive, only to accidentally break the torch arm and run off. Later, Surtur returned and fixed the Statue, using his powers to re-attach the torch arm.[6]

Appearances for Statue of Liberty

In chronological order:

Behind the Scenes[]

  • During the development of Spider-Man: No Way Home, the filmmakers wanted to alter the Statue of Liberty in some way to pay tribute to the Avengers. While this only resulted in Captain America's Shield being added to statue in the final release, other additions like Iron Man's gauntlets or the Avengers logo being added were considered.[7]
  • When the Ms. Marvel episode No Normal initially released, it featured a shot of the Statue of Liberty with its real life deoxidized green color, despite the fact that the show was set after the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home. The episode was edited later to color correct this inconsistency.[8]
