Bertron Diib hails from the planet Diibworld. He was an extremely loyal and selfless member of the L.E.G.I.O.N..
He was recuited into the R.E.C.R.U.I.T.S. along with Amon Hakk, Borb Borbb, Darius, Davroth Catto, Ig'nea, Jiv Reduu, Lydea Mallor and Zena Moonstruk. He helped battle the rogue Jiv Reduu when he was rejected from the team and he began murdering the other R.E.C.R.U.I.T.S.
He died on the planet Maltus during the battle against an ancient trio of gods. He gave his life trying to shield innocents from a massive energy discharge. His fellow R.E.C.R.U.I.T.S. returned his body to Diibworld to deliver the news to his mother.
Later, when the core L.E.G.I.O.N. were on the run from Lyrl Dox, they came upon an impervious ship, which they dubbed the Diib, in honour of their fallen friend. Bertron was best friends with another recruit the android, Darius.
