Thunderfist was a large man, who wore special gloves that enhanced his strength. He used these gloves in trying to help British soldiers put out a massive fire that erupted following a Nazi blitz. Thunderfist used his strength to knock rubble down on top of the fire and smother it.

Thunderfist was suspicious of "Alfie" at first, but was convinced by "Alfie" that the Invaders were traitors and went along with him. Following "Alfie's" exposure as a Nazi double-agent, Thunderfist got rid of his Nazi-created gloves and retired from super-heroing. What became of him after the war is unknown. [citation needed]

The Crusaders were created as counterparts to the Freedom Fighters, Golden Age characters originally owned by Quality Comics, and later, at the time in question, by DC Comics, with each member an analogue for one of the Freedom Fighters. In Thunderfist’s case, he was an homage to the Human Bomb.
