“Magneto is here. Liberty Island.”

Cyclops (James Marsden)

An international summit is to be held in place of Ellis Island, close to the Statue of Liberty. Magneto plans to use a device to irradiate heads of state and turn them into mutants.

Helped by Toad (Ray Park) and Mystique, the supervillain nevertheless manages to fend off the superhero team by imprisoning them thanks to the metal of the statue.

The team seems lost until Professor X’s (Patrick Stewart) major asset, Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), frees itself and destroys the device, hidden in the effigy torch, using its adamantium claws.

Statue of Liberty National Monument

One of the most famous monuments in the world, the work of Frenchman Auguste Bartholdi is not only the emblem of New York, but also and above all that of freedom, a value so dear to Americans. A powerful symbol, strong images: destruction, protective allegory, a happy ending, hope… The Statue of Liberty has inspired creators and its radiance does not seem to be about to fade away.

Offered by France in 1886 to mark the centennial of the American Declaration of Independence, the Statue of Liberty has long been America’s first vision for millions of migrants.

Their boats sailed along Liberty Island, on which the 93-meter-high monument stands, before their passage to immigration on Ellis Island. Named Liberty Enlightening the World, the statue looks toward Europe and the date of the proclamation of independence, July 4, 1776, is engraved on its tablet.

The broken chains at its feet are a metaphor for freedom. To visit it, you must take the boat from Battery Park in southern Manhattan or Liberty State Park in New Jersey and it is recommended to buy tickets in advance.

The crossing costs $18.50. Add $18.50 to reach the pedestal where a museum is located and $21.50 to climb 354 steps to its crown.
