From Rocket Comics #2.

The Steel Shark's submarine was equipped with high-tech weaponry such as flux-ray-guns and communications tech such as video phones called a fluro-vox. He carried a special gun which had an image of his sub on the butt of the handle which when used to hit hard enough would leave a depression of the image.

In the first issue of Rocket Comics, he was bald and green skinned but, in subsequent appearances, looked like a more normal submarine commander.
