James Stone was born in a small town in Kentucky in 1900, where he worked in the mines like many of his peers. He worked hard everyday, occasionally up to eighteen hours a day to eke out enough money to keep his family fed, housed, and clothed.
While working in a newly-discovered cavern one day, he came upon a strange object embedded in the wall. Believing it to be of value, he attempted to pry it loose. That was the last thing he remembered until he was awakened some hundred years later when a contemporary group of miners found him, mistakenly thinking that they had chanced upon a statue made of stone and mud.
When he awoke, the heroine woman known as Lady Liberty (UNTIL Superhuman Registry No.: 694287) was the first thing he saw. Learning that his wife and children were long dead and finding himself in a world far different from the one he knew, he decided to return accompany her to Millennium City and learn to adjust to the brave, new world in which he was now living.
