With the outbreak of World War II, Australia was in constant conflict with Imperial Japan. During a conflict between the Japanese and Australian Navy in 1942, the Sub-Mariner led an Atlantean assault to assist the Australians in driving back the Japanese invaders. Also during this time a Japanese scientist set up a lab on an island off the coast of Australia. From there he used an evolutionary ray to hyper-evolve lizards into and army of Shaggy Men to invade the country. This plot was thwarted by the Patriot.
In 1944 the Japanese dug a tunnel from Singapore to Australia to invade the country in-land. This operation was discovered by the Sub-Mariner, who flooded the tunnel before the invasion could be complete. Nazi scientist Doctor Necrosis managed to infiltrate the Red Cross in Brisbane where he tainted blood supplies with the deadly White Gangrene virus until he was exposed by Captain America and Bucky.
