The Battle of New York, locally known as The Incident, was a major battle between the Avengers and Loki with his borrowed Chitauri army in Manhattan, New York City.

The Avengers, who had been gathered by S.H.I.E.L.D., were inspired to fight by Phil Coulson's death at Loki's hands and by a motivational speech from Nick Fury. This battle was the climax of the Chitauri Invasion and ended the Avengers' war with Loki and the Chitauri.
