Bobb Kohan was a young boy on a family picnic when his power to create crystal or transmute other objects into crystal surfaced. He tried out for the Legion as Crystal Kid, but was rejected. Upon the suggestion of Wildfire, he enrolled in the Legion Academy along with fellow rejects, Lamprey and Nightwind.

During the so-called Five-Year Gap, Crystal Kid finally became a member of the Legion, the last official graduate of the Academy to do so (other former students would join, but after the Academy was shut down). Upset when the Academy was shut down, he drifted around for a while, until Polar Boy found him on Mars and offered him membership. He was willing to join, but not overly enthusiastic. When Black Dawn resulted in the disappearance of Wildfire, his closest Legion friend, he quit and returned to wandering. He decided that fomenting dissatisfaction with Earthgov was a necessary service, and began publishing anti-Earthgov leaflets and newspapers. But the Dominators who were now secretly running Earth captured him and performed experiments on him. He was rescued years later by Danielle Foccart. He stuck with the Legionnaires on Earth until the end of the planet was liberated, and helped with its evacuation, but was not re-drafted into the team. He instead joined former Legion of Substitute-Heroes members as part of the United Planets' security force.

After neither the Reboot nor the Threeboot does Crystal Kid appear to exist.

After Infinite Crisis, Crystal Kid's original history has more or less been re-established. He graduates from the Academy after years of study, but is not offered Legion membership.
