"New York is next. And the only thing keeping Manhattan from crumbling to a pile of dust... is the four of you."
Stick to the Defenders[src]

The War for New York was a conflict between the Defenders and the Hand for the fate of New York City.


"Believe it or don't, the fact remains that the city you're sworn to protect is ground zero in a war it doesn't even know is happening, that hole is just the start. So you can kill, die or sit on your ass and watch Hell's Kitchen burn but this war is bigger than you or me or any of our problems."
Stick to Matt Murdock[src]

Duel of Phnom Penh

"We've been chasing the Hand for months. We finally get a lead on a guy who can supposedly help us, and we get there just in time to watch him die."
"It is not your fault."
"I let that woman escape."

New York City Earthquake

"Those tremors that shook up the place, they're nothing compared to what comes next. The Hand's done it before. Pompeii, Chernobyl. Events the history books like to call catastrophes, just cover-ups. 'Cause New York is next. And the only thing keeping Manhattan from crumbling to a pile of dust... is the four of you."

Ambush at the Wall of the Chaste

"I got clocked."
"By White Hat?"
"No. I don't know who he was. But when he hit me, it felt like a sledgehammer. He had this hand. I think it glowed."

Escape from Midland Circle

"I tried being a one-man army, and it failed. But this... This feels like something else is at work here. The four of us show up to fight a criminal organization at the same moment? How obvious does it have to be? This... This cannot be an accident."

Destruction of Midland Circle

"I know what you want, but you're not gonna get it. Because unlike you, my master taught me loyalty."
"Ah, that's why you're still chained to your master. You're gonna fail here, just as you failed K'un-Lun. You should've heard the way they screamed when I killed them."
Iron Fist and Elektra[src]
