Dick Storm is an adventurer.
He has an entry in this compendium because half of his small number of recorded adventures are specifically working on behalf of the governments of beleagured countries fighting intrigue and such. One of the others is almost qualifying as well.
The time period for his escapades is 1940 or just before. Storm is a man who craves danger and excitement and since at the moment America is at peace without any action to be found there, he has taken to roaming the globe searching for death-defying situations to interest and challenge him. He does pick and choose the assignments he is willing to take, telling one potential client, "I am always at the disposal of the forces for Law and Order."
He has to have been doing so for some time because he is already well known around the planet, his "fame as an adventurer has spread far and wide.", such that if there is trouble at some spot and he is seen visiting nearby, he is the man called by the authorities to lend a hand.
Since he is able to operate in various exotic parts of the Earth with no difficulty, we have to assume that he has a terrific grasp of languages, including French, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, and Hindu. His understanding of battle tactics are top-notch and one of his many combat skills is the use of a fight airplane.
Storm is a handsome, tall, athletic man with short black hair and a fondness for dressing in style. Whatever he wears, be it a suit or jungle garb, he does so with panache.
Being a man of action and being so attractive, Storm is never at a loss for female companionship though he does not let any relationship tie him down. Saying goodbye to a beautiful woman he just rescued and who wanted him to stay with her so she could show how appreciative she was, Storm laments, "I guess it's not in the cards, Lana. I'm just a little too curious to know what's going on over those hills".
