Blue Diamond (Marvel)
Real Name: Elton T. Morrow
Search for 'Blue Diamond (Marvel)' on Amazon


Powers:
The strange blue diamond particles embedded in Blue Diamond's body have made his skin as strong as a diamond, as well as giving him superhuman strength. After his body was altered by Shanga, Blue Diamond gains the power of flight and the ability to survive in the vacuum of space. The alterations to his body also reversed the effects of aging.

Bio:
Elton T. Morrow is an archaeologist who finds a mysterious blue diamond on an expedition to Antarctica. The diamond is a piece of the Lifestone Tree, which powers the alien Chosen Eight of Fate. A German sub attacks Morrow's ship on the way home and Morrow is the only survivor. An explosion shattered the diamond during the battle, forcing innumerable tiny diamond particles into Morrow's body. After he is rescued by a British ship, he finds that the shards of the diamond gifted him with diamond-hard skin, giving him superhuman strength and nigh-invulnerability. Dubbing himself the Blue Diamond, he battles Nazi spies during World War II as part of the Liberty Legion. He retired at the end of the war.

After spending years in retirement, the Blue Diamond returns to assist the Fantastic Four's Thing against Shanga, a crystal based alien. Shanga falls in love with Blue Diamond, and turns him into a living humanoid diamond creature as her consort. After Shanga is captured by the Stranger, Morrow returns to Earth to join the new Invaders.
