History

Dian Belmont was the lifelong companion of Sandman, Wesley Dodds. Originally a flighty socialite girl, Dian's encounter with Dodds inspired her to join his fight against crime.

She was responsible for designing the purple and yellow costume that Dodds wore during his tenure as a member of the All-Star Squadron. Fellow All-Star Jonathan Law, the Tarantula, was so impressed by the outfit, that he later refashioned his own costume based on Dian's designs (Originally Law changed his costume out of respect for Dian's memory, when he had erroneously believed that she had been killed in an automobile explosion).

In her twilight years, Dian became an award winning crime novelist and passed away from natural causes.
