The Golden Gate Bridge is a red painted suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate, the one-mile-wide strait connecting San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean. The structure links San Francisco, California to Marin County. The bridge is one of the most internationally recognized symbols of San Francisco and California.



Several years ago, the Golden Gate Bridge became one of many popular landmarks terrorized by the mutated dinosaur known as Godzilla. The anti-espionage agency S.H.I.E.L.D. and the impromptu S.H.I.E.L.D. task force known as the Godzilla Squad arrived to safeguard the San Francisco Bay area. Also assisting them in their struggle against Godzilla' rampage were the Champions of Los Angeles. The battle caused widespread damage, including the destruction of the Golden Gate Bridge (though it has long since been rebuilt)[1].

A few years later, the Golden Gate bridge was nearly destroyed when a Roxxon oil tanker slammed into one of the support pylons. Iron Man and the neophyte super-hero Stratosfire repaired the suspension cables and ushered trapped motorists to safety[2].

In recent years, the Golden Gate Bridge was the sight of a massive battle between the Hulk and the "Red Hulk". After a prolonged slugfest, the Red Hulk got the upper hand by breaking the Hulk's arm. Their battle was interupted by the arrival of Thor, who fought against the Red Hulk before moving their battle elsewhere[3].

The fight however created a crack in the San Andreas fault line and a coalition of super-heroes including members of the Mighty Avengers and the Fantastic Four arrived to help keep the bridge from collapsing into the bay. The Sub-Mariner even summoned the might of great Atlantean creatures such as the Giganto to keep the bridge in place so they could affect repairs.[4]
