The Manitou Stone came down from the sky, where it was found by Iroquois warrior Flying Stag. It gave him great powers, including strength, speed, and improved senses, which he used as the hero Super-Chief. The stone was passed down, through the generations, until it was given to Flying Stag's descendent, Jon Standing Bear. Jon used it during his brief career as the new Super-Chief, a member of the Justice League of America. After Jon was killed by Skeets, he was transported to a mystical realm, where Flying Stag took the stone back and gave it to Ralph Dibny.
The user of the stone will be imbued with:
- The strength of a thousand bears 
- Speed that surpasses the fastest of the deer 
- Jumping prowess that surpasses those of the wolf
