The Stone Man was the creation of a Nazi sculptor named Lubitch and a Nazi scientist named Professor Schultz who wanted to create an unbeatable weapon for Nazi Germany. Attempting to bring their sculpture to life, the Professor's machines overloaded and exploded killing the two men but bringing the statue to life. Loyal to Nazi Germany, the statue came across an army of British soldiers who came to destroy a Nazi ammunition factory. The creature slaughtered the entire troop except for one soldier who was saved by the Destroyer. The Destroyer fought the creature to a standstill, causing it to flee from him in fear.

The creature came across a group of Nazi soldiers, whose commanding officer recruited the creature upon learning that it was loyal to the Nazi cause and upon hearing news that the Destroyer was in the area. Patrolling the ammunition factory, the statue came across the surviving British soldier holding a number of Nazi troops at gunpoint and attacked him. The creature then rushed to the factory just as the Destroyer was overpowered and captured. The creature confronted its enemy in the dungeon, where the Destroyer told it that he had planted a bomb that would destroy the factory, taking them both with it. Fearing this, the statue attempted to flee, smashing through the door. The lone British soldier, on death's door, then freed the Destroyer. The Destroyer escaped just as the building exploded, destroying the statue with it.[1]

Powers

Made of stone, the statue has super-human strength and durability.




The All-New Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe #12 under Arnim Zola's profile, states that he might have participated in the creation of the Nazi animated statue Sculpture (never having seen the pages of the Stone Man story, I'm hoping that there are other statues in Lubitch studio or Professor Schultz's lab that could be Sculpture or that either Lubitch or Professor Schultz survived the lab explosion).

The Mandarin created two Living Statues[2] and Thor fought three living statues called the Protectroids.
