Real Name: Jim Lockhart

None, his submarine can fly, travel on land and fire energy beams

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 onboard, he became the peacekeeper of the seas, the Robin Hood of the deep. 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. He was not dead, but he did retire after this.
