What we are really afraid of: Notice how conditioned we are to not offending Islam. None of these images shows Muslim cities being destroyed by the Apocalypse.
Most disaster movies or illustrators take extra care not to show any Muslim cities or monuments crumbling down from fictional war or apocalypse. You would not want to make Muslims angry. So it's always the West, particularly the Statue of Liberty and NYC, that take the worst beating. Of course, the almost apocalyptic Muslim-on-Muslim destruction goes on in the Middle East, but that's real war, (see what's left of the neighborhood of Jobar, in Damascus, Syria).
How the world might end, according to digital artist Steve McGhee:

A tidal wave appears to be taking out the cars and buildings as it makes its way down the narrow streets of New York City. Reminds us of a scene in the film The Day After Tomorrow.
Mr McGhee, from London, Ontario, believes his work could be influenced by the fact he watches far too many disaster movies. He said: 'I guess it's too many disaster movies. That and the fact that I'm fascinated by things we, as human beings, have little or no control over.
