Jim Lockhart was a navy captain until he retired in 1940. Unable to settle down, he began building a one-man submarine known as "The Red Torpedo." Using the devices on board, he became the peacekeeper of the seas, the Robin Hood of the deep. His run as a hero for Quality comics consisted of Crack Comics 1-20. His most common enemy was the Black Shark, a pirate of sorts.

Hours before the attack on Pearl Harbor, Red Torpedo was recruited by Uncle Sam to join the Freedom Fighters in defending the base. He fell with the other heroes and was left for dead. Later, it was revealed that he was not dead, but he did retire after this.
