"Shipwreck" Roberts ran a small diving and salvage operation, in the early 1940s, in Charleston, South Carolina. He owned a bright red "Depthosphere" submarine, with automobile-style viewing windows, for deep-sea salvage and research. His sole employee was his assistant, "Deep Sea" Doodle, also a diver and submariner.

More than once Shipwreck Roberts was called upon by the U.S. Intelligence Department to assist them in resolving some critical maritime problems, some caused by a domestic supervillain, and later ones caused by enemy navies.

Shipwreck Roberts' most notable enemy was a mad scientist turned pirate turned warlord, calling himself "Doctor Drown." This villain did not spend time on threats or demands; he simply sank oceangoing ships and looted their sunken hulls. Drown also commanded several gigantic monsters, of at least three unknown species, plus at least one robotic submarine dinosaur, and a small crew of seagoing thugs.
