Enjoyable final chapter by Roy Thomas has action and character writing. We see Scott and Charles working as a team to stay alive, and we see the nucleus of the X-Men being formed. 9/10

  I like these origin stories. Is The Living Diamond possibly Emma Frost's ancestor?

  I hate it when Xavier uses his mental abilities to probe locks and machinery. I just don't buy it!

What I do like is how, during all this action, Xavier is essentially furiously propelling himself around in his wheelchair. He must have significant upper-body strength!

"Scott, since you're an angsty teen who is self-conscious about your horrifying mutant ability... I'll call you Cyclops!"

  So vibrations can shatter diamond? Interesting.

  I kinda liked this story. Aside from the presence of the Xmen, it reminded me of a Twilight Zone episode, or an early, non-superhero Tales to Astonish story

  As a conclusion to this 5-part-quick-read of an origin...

Somehow I thought this would show us more of Scott's past and not just this little intermezzo with Jack'o Diamond Lantern. For me it was no real Origin, more "How Scott became an X-Man (and got a peculiar Nickname)"
