History

Overview[]

The George Washington Bridge spans the Hudson River from Manhattan to New Jersey.

20th Century[]

The George Washington Bridge was damaged by the Sub-Mariner during his rampage through New York City in summer of 1940. He was prevented from completely demolishing the bridge by the Human Torch, who used his flame powers to send the Sub-Mariner fleeing into the Hudson River below.[3]

Modern Age[]

The United States Army set up tanks and other heavy artillery on the George Washington Bridge to fire upon Pilai, a powerful Kosmosian being submerged in the Hudson River. Their attacks from the bridge proved ineffectual, as did the initial efforts of Ant-Man and the Wasp, but the heroes eventually discovered a way to neutralize the alien.[4]

During the Hulk's quest for revenge against the Avengers, the superhuman went on a rampage through Manhattan and came into conflict with the Fantastic Four. One of its members, the Thing, confronted him on the George Washington Bridge and momentarily restrained him with suspension cables, but the Hulk proved stronger and broke free, continuing his rampage through the city.[5]

Daredevil arrived at the center of the Bridge to check out Jonathan Powers' announcement to reveal his secret identity and got into a scuffle with him. Making it seem as though Daredevil was trying to kill him, Powers then forced Daredevil to knock him off the bridge, where he secretly escaped aboard a submarine. With the body of Powers "lost," Daredevil was accused of murder and he fled the scene.[6]

The George Washington Bridge was reportedly rebuilt by Damage Control in a day, after the city had spent months trying to do the same.[7]
