In both Spider-Man: No Way Home and Hawkeye (2021), we see the Statue of Liberty in New York City has a Captain America shield being affixed to it.

Was this in reference to a comic? Or a prior film? Prior to 2021, did the Statue of Liberty ever have a Captain America shield in any Marvel property?


As far as I know (through a few quick Google searches and the Marvel wiki entry), this is unique to the MCU.

On this Earth, the Statue of Liberty was at some point under construction to have a giant replica of Captain America's shield added to her torch-arm. Much of the scaffolding was destroyed and the shield fell off during the final confrontation between Spider-Man and a group of antagonistic visitors from other Earths.
