Attack on Pearl Harbor
The attack was a surprise military strike by the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service upon the United States of America against the naval base at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. All but USS Arizona were later raised, and six were returned to service and went on to fight in the war. The battle lasted no more then 90 minutes.
The Invaders learned that the Axis powers of Nazi Germany, Imperial Japan and Meranno's rebel Atlantean forces would attack various key sites throughout the world. While Captain America, Bucky and Namor protected British Prime Minster; Winston Churchill in Europe. The Human Torch and Toro were dispatched to assist U.S. military in Hawaii. The forces however were to much and the base was destroyed killing thousands.
Nick Fury and Red Hargrove were stationed at Pearl Harbor. During the attack they joined the battle and Red was gunned down. As his best friend died in his arms, Fury vowed to fight the Axis powers until they were wiped off the map.
The attack led to the United States' formal entry into World War II the next day. President Franklin D. Roosevelt stood in the United States Congress and proclaimed December 7, 1941, "a date which will live in infamy".
After that, the USA declared war against the Empire of Japan. This lead to many of the heroes like Isaiah Bradley, Ken Hale, Kent Blake and millions of other Americans to enlist to fight the Axis powers.
Namor was being honored at Pearl Harbor by the US Navy when he was attack by the Pacific Overlords during the middle of the ceremony. He was able to fight them off with the help of the West Coast Avengers
