Synopsis:
begins with Carter Primus (who we are told invented DASH (Deep Sea Habitat), PUP (Primus Underwater Propulsion Vehicle) and SSS (Sonar Signal System), a rich adventurer who travels the world battling evil and the natural world. We see him on the first page swimming between a beautiful girl and a great white shark which he kills. Then they get to her yacht and he finds out she's Lady Lydia Mabry the widow of Sir David Mabry. She is assissted by a suspicious fellow named Nikki Le Fleche. Carter is treated to a meal then sent packing as the yacht leaves Portuguese waters. But he discovers first that the dumping of garbage from the boat at Le Fleche's orders is what likely drew the shark to begin with. He then flys to Marseilles and there finds out that Sir David and Le Fleche were partners in cocaine smuggling but that Lady Mabry seems not to be aware of that. Primus again meets up with her and gets aboard the yacht but when he is taken to the secret hold by Le Fleche who wants to ambush him, he strikes first and quickly dispatches the villains saving Lady Mabry from murder and the world from the poisonous drug.

But a shark stops his attempt and Primus has the captain mark the spot. News of the ring's fate has reached shore and other fortune hunters show up. Primus battes them and a really big shark (which he blows up) and snags the ring. But it turns out that ring was a fake and Elizabeth had known all along. Richard throws her into the water but all is forgiven in the final panel.
