    Pretty sure they noticed this 50+ years ago (at least). NYC has been threatened hundreds of times. It never works because the vast majority of the super hero challenge is there.


One unplanned space laser from the Skrulls and the world is theirs.

    Better plan would be destroying the other places.

    Plus, the truly smart villains don't really want to destroy.


Exactly, there are no smart villains in the Marvel universe.

The hardcore ones could just team up and obliterate the city. Mageneto has already reprogrammed sentinels in the past. Head to a factory, do teh same, show up with a few hundred, and carpet bomb NYC, and the problem is solved.

Dr. Doom could mystically send the city to the sun. That might start a war with the U.S., but a lot of things he has done should have.

Apocalypse could take control of nukes and send them to one place. One nuclear weapon, and the world is his in an afternoon.


As for the lower level ones... so long as all the heroes are in one city, they are the dumbest of the lot.

Hit like five banks in Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee, and you are set for life.

You want to be Kingpin? Go to Seattle with your superpower and super-weapons.

For all the talk of Marvel being "the world outside your window," this one choice strains credulity far more than a guy with Spider-powers, mutant powers, or a billionaire using his tech to help people.


The thing is, there are thousands of supers that are not in NYC. Heck, maybe a million. Plus, all of the hidden races that number in the millions. The idea that New York is the end-all-be-all is a fallacy. The books just don't focus on anything but New York most of the time.
