Mount Rushmore is a National Monument built to commemorate some of the United States' greatest presidents. In most universes these faces are that of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln.

In 1943, shortly after the construction of the monument had run out of funding, the work was almost destroyed by Eric Ward a Nazi sympathizer. However the attempt was foiled by the Human Torch and Toro.[1]

The invasion of extra-dimensional Electra warriors from Dimension X was frustrated when at least three of the huge statues apparently moved, leaving huge footprints on the soil, and intimidated the Electra advanced party. The animated statues proved to be immune to the extra-dimensional warriors' weapons. Scientist Lynwood, who had accidentally summoned the aliens, discovered what happened, or so he thought, but decided to not tell it; he however believed that the presidents had protected the nation.[2]

One of the faces was partially damaged when Captain Marvel used it as a launching pad when he flew to Kree-Lar[3]

A Secret government bio-research lab was later discovered underneath Mount Rushmore which contained the dangerous US-made bio-weapon which was engineered by Project Bloodwash under the command of Secretary Dell Rusk, the weapon spread dangerously and killed many people before being stopped by The Avengers[4]
