Bio:
Long-time companion, but apparently never the wife, of Wesley Dodds, Dian Belmont is a celebrated author and Nobel Prize winner. After meeting Dodds at a ball in Adventure Comics #47, Dian soon partnered with Dodds romantically and professionally. She was often seen as a conduit of information from her father, District Attorney Larry Belmont, to her lover, Dodds.

She fully knew of Wesley Dodds' secret life as The Sandman (I), and, on at least one occasion, even wore his uniform and actively fought crime as The Sandman. It might even be fair to technically call her The Sandman (II). Incurring serious injuries while in the original Sandman uniform (All-Star Squadron #18), Wesley Dodds decided soon thereafter to completely change his uniform. She assisted with the redesign, which resulted in the purple-and-black design he would sport for most of the rest of the Golden Age.

Long after their crime-fighting days were over, the couple decided to take a final trip around the world in the pages of Starman vol. 2 #30. As they arrived in the Orient, she died of apparently natural causes.

Notes:
She has an Aunt Agatha (New York World's Fair Comics #2). Dian Belmont went from a brunette to black hair (Adventure Comics #56).
