Bobb Kohan was a young boy on a family picnic on a glorious summer day when puberty kicked in. Bobb's mutant power to create crystal or transmute other objects into crystal surfaced... turning his grandfather into a statue of crystal. When he became old enough he went straight to enjoy the camaraderie of other super-powered youths and have a shot at the Legion of Super-Heroes membership as Crystal Kid.

During his tryouts he met Nightwind, Lamprey and Blok, other potential recruits at the event. When the Legion decided to have them wear their special flight rings and go out on a mission with them, it was to see their capacity on a field assignment. All including Bobb failed at both the proper use of their powers and their lack of team work. All but Blok, who not only stopped the criminal act but also won membership into the Legion.

Crystal Kid, along with Lamprey and Nightwind trained with Wildfire. After Wildfire trounced them in a sparring match, he confided in the three his true tragic past that he had not shared with other members of the Legion. Crystal Kid's confidence was boosted, and he, along with Nightwind and Lamprey decided not to give up trying to join the Legion.
