‘Avengers’ Damage to Manhattan Would Cost $160 Billion, Disaster Expert Estimates (Exclusive)I love stuff like this. Real disaster experts have “…employed computer models used for predicting the destruction of nuclear weapons…” to estimate the damage and cost to NYC after the end battle in the Avengers movie. Maybe it’s time to call Damage Control.Partial quote from the Hollywood Reporter:

The wreckage in Midtown Manhattan, all told, would top the financial carnage of 9/11, Hurricane Katrina and the Japanese tsunami.

and:

In an exclusive report for THR, KAC, led by Chuck Watson and Sara Jupin, employed computer models used for predicting the destruction of nuclear weapons and concluded that the physical damage of the invasion would be $60 billion-$70 billion, with economic and cleanup costs hitting $90 billion. Add on the loss of thousands of lives, and KAC puts the overall price tag at $160 billion.

Is there fic that deals with this? Like, the aftermath of the battle. How do the Avengers help? Do they help? What about media backlash against them?
