The Pacific Ocean is the largest of the Earth's oceanic divisions. It extends from the Arctic in the north to Antarctica in the south, bounded by Asia and Australia in the west and the Americas in the east.
During World War II, the Pacific Ocean was one of the key settings for major naval battles between Allied forces and the Empire of Japan. One of the unsung heroes who navigated the oceans during this time was Captain William Storm in his PT-47 submarine.
The Pacific Ocean was also the scene of a major international incident involving Nato, Aquaman and the forces of Kobra. Kobra's agents kidnapped foreign dignitaries in order to determine the location of the sunken freighter The Bellerophon. The ship was discovered by the Fisherman in the Mariana Trench.
