Torpedo is a skilled athlete and hand-to-hand combatant. He uses an energy blaster which can be set to stun or kill. He also wears a hat with a razor-edged brow, which can slice through flesh, wood, and metal.
Crime-Wave had Torpedo brought in from Los Angeles in order to take out Willie Lincoln, a blind ex-cop who had encountered Crime-Wave and reported his location and operations to the police and the press. Torpedo attacked and easily overcame Lincoln and his bodyguards in the top-floor hotel room in which they were staying. Daredevil, who had been working with Lincoln as Matt Murdock, happened by in time to save Willie from being thrown from the roof. Daredevil fought Torpedo, leading him away from Willie and onto the roof. As Daredevil swung from a large pole, intending to use it to increase his kicking force, Torpedo threw his hat and sliced the pole in half. Daredevil just barely caught the edge of the roof to stop himself from falling towards certain death, but Torpedo then began stomping on his fingers. Willie Lincoln followed the sound of the fight to the roof and then targeted Torpedo's voice as he kept taunting Daredevil. Willie tackled Torpedo, knocking him off the roof, but going with him, too. Daredevil grabbed Willie, saving him, but was unable to save Torpedo, who fell to the pavement below, screaming like a little girl the whole way down.
