Millennium City (Earth-727)
Millennium City, Hawaii was once military base called Pearl Harbor. That changed on December 7th, 1941 when the Japanese military dropped an experimental palladium bomb, provoking America’s entry into World War 2.
Hoping to mend wounds after the war, a committee of Japanese Americans, native Hawaiians, and the United States government rebuilt Pearl Harbor as a shining modern city. This Millennium City quickly became one of the greatest cities on Earth, attracting a cosmopolitan populace. Unfortunately the violence that begot the city attracted a seedy character: Arnold Blase, a self-proclaimed ‘death priest’. As he meditated at the bombing memorial, a force from beyond spoke to him, and he drew power from this cosmic entity. Rechristening himself The Overlich, Blase sought to raise a zombie army of those killed in the war and conquer the world—starting with Millennium City. He was thwarted when the Champion of Asgard, the Iron Valkyrie, appeared to fight him.
Now protected by the new Iron Valkyrie, Millennium City still stands as a beacon of hope in the middle of the Pacific Ocean—and as ever a magnet for heroes and villains wishing to make a name for themselves.
