In 1941 Professor Elton Morrow participated in an Antarctic excavation that unearthed a mysterious blue diamond, which was apparently a fragment of the Lifestone Tree, a collection of extraterrestrial artifacts that had empowered the alien heroes called the Chosen Eight of Faith many millennia before. When Morrow’s party returned to the US, their ship was attacked by a German U-boat, causing the gem to shatter, the pieces embedding themselves in Morrow’s body. Rescued by a British destroyer, Morrow soon discovered that the gem had given him the density and toughness of diamond, and he became a costumed crime fighter: the Blue Diamond.
