New York City
In 2008, New York City was invaded by the Decepticons and became the site of a protracted battle between them and the United States military. The city was heavily damaged during the fighting and all but destroyed when the Autobots arrived to expel the Decepticons. G.I. Joe aided in cleaning up the city where Joe Colton lamented that his previous encounters with the Transformers should have allowed him to see the invasion coming and do something about it.
