Russell Stamm was the artist of the daily newspaper comic 'Invisible Scarlet O'Neil', that ran in The Chicago Times from 3 June 1940. He was an assistant to Chester Gould on the 'Dick Tracy' comic at first. 'Scarlet O'Neil' is said to be the first female superhero with super powers, yet she has no secret identity. Scarlet's power was that she could make herself invisible by touching a nerve on her wrist. Where other superheroes fought Nazi spies, top criminals and Japanese saboteurs at the time, 'Scarlet O'Neil' had a lighter touch, helping mainly children.

During the War, the comic was illustrated by Stamm's assistants, who brought more action into the stories. When Stamm returned in 1946, the stories became more sarcastic, as if Stamm was ridiculing his character from time to time. After a couple of years, Scarlet's invisibility became less important and even got dropped eventually. The name of the feature was changed to simply 'Scarlet O'Neil', until secondary character 'Stainless Steel' took the leading role in 1955. This version lasted only one year, when Stamm decided to leave the comics industry and start a career in the television field.
