Based on the rules of the Sliding Timescale of Earth-616 all appearances of the original Twin Towers and all references to the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 as having taken place during the modern age of heroes should now be considered topical references.

Apocryphal Appearances

As stated above, any specific dates mentioned to quantify time during the modern age should be considered topical as opposed to factual.

In Earth-616 the World Trade Center appears to have fallen to terrorists during an attack on the Financial District of Manhattan in New York City, before being rebuilt years later as One World Trade Center.

On September 11, 2001 Captain America was seen digging through the rubble.[1] Daredevil also peered over the rubble of 9/11 months after the attack.[2]

The World Trade Center has been the backdrop and a landmark of many adventures in New York City. For example, the Avengers fought Zodiac on top of the World Trade Center. The battle, and in particular the Vision's actions, severely damaged the outer facade. After the skirmish, the Assemblers worked diligently on repairs with the Mighty Thor holding the foundation in place.[3]

Later, the Incredible Hulk fought Doc Samson atop the World Trade Center. Samson was knocked off the building before any major damage occurred.[4]

Peter Parker, Mary Jane Watson, and Flash Thompson had dinner at least once at the World Trade Center.[5] Spider-Man also would stick on the side of the World Trade Center whenever he was thinking or just resting.[6]

The demon Blackout was finally being captured by Ghost Rider. He was hoisted and chained over the World Trade Center where he was sentenced to burn to death when the sun rose.[7]

Alternate Realities

In Earth-555, the September 11, 2001 attacks never happened and the twin towers of the World Trade Center still stood in 2006.[8]
