If Buzzer is the smart aleck of the Dreadnoks, then Torch is the witless stooge of the team. Not quite smart (he's illiterate!) and never really aspiring to be anything higher, Torch only does what he is told. To that effect, he is valuable not for his brains but for his penchant for sudden and unexpected violence. Perhaps, his only bright spot is his skill with the acetylene torch which he has modified into an actual functioning flamethrower weapon.

Torch was a juvenile delinquent who joined the merchant marines and became a sure hand with a cutting torch. With that knowledge, he began running chop shops, gutting and remodeling stolen cars, sometimes getting too carried away with his work and transforming a hot car into a smoldering scrap pile. A former member of the Melbourne Maulers, he joined the Dreadnoks after the latter gang absorbed the former. A stupid, unrepentant thug, he is tolerated by the others for his skill in motorcycle repair.
