History: (Daredevil I#143 (fb) – BTS) – After years of working for Maxwell Glenn of Glenn Industries, Mr. Stone slowly wielded more control over Glenn's business. Stone soon began embezzling money and cutting corners, including turning several apartments into tenements.

(Daredevil I#141 (fb) – BTS) – At some point, and through unrevealed means, Stone developed super-powers including super-strength and durability. He adopted a green costume and took the code name Stone. At the order of Purple Man, Stone kidnapped Debbie Harris in an effort to wield pressure against "Foggy" Nelson.

(Daredevil I#134) – "Foggy" Nelson visited the offices of Maxwell Glenn but he was turned away by Mr. Stone. Nelson vowed to return with a court order. Stone told Maxwell nothing about Nelson's visit then went off for a personal meeting.

(Daredevil I#136) – Stone recorded Heather Glenn's conversations with Matt Murdock then said goodbye to Maxwell, going home for the evening.

(Daredevil I#138) – At Glenn Industries, holding a gun, Stone made a call to "Foggy" Nelson demanding Nelson be on a specific intersection by midnight or he would kill Debbie Harris. That night, he shot at "Foggy" but "Foggy" survived.

(Daredevil I#141 (fb) – BTS) – Stone privately arranged for "Foggy" to be in a particular phone booth at a particular time.  

(Daredevil I#141) – Stone, wearing his costume on a nearby roof, opened fire on "Foggy" in the phone booth, striking him without realizing that "Foggy" was wearing a bullet-proof vest. Daredevil attacked Stone on the roof and they battled until Stone fell, taking a hard fall on the ground below. As Daredevil demanded to know who had kidnapped Debbie Harris, Stone admitted culpability then, after chanting his own name a few times, he died.

(Daredevil I#143 – BTS) – The police found evidence of Stone's crimes in Glenn Industries' paperwork.

Comments: Created by Marv Wolfman, Bob Brown and Jim Mooney.

Due to a lot of shifting authors, the story of Maxwell Glenn, Glenn Industries, Stone, the kidnapping of Debbie Harris and the machinations of the Purple Man became drawn out and rather clunky. Stone was a menacing henchman, for example, who suddenly showed up super-strong and wearing green. The story resolved itself but with some loose ends hanging still.
