Jack Winters was a worker at a nuclear power plant. Not making enough money to pay off his gambling debts, he decided to steal some of his boss's radioactive materials and sell them back to him. One of the flasks he was attempting to steal exploded, and Winters escaped without getting caught, after which he spent a couple weeks in a hospital. Several nights later he began to detect brainwaves and he found that his hands had transformed into flexible diamond.
