One of the characters in the DC Cinematic Universe that we know the least about at this point is the character of Cyborg. He doesn’t have quite the storied history of Batman or Wonder Woman and so he tends to get overlooked but now we finally have some details about who Cyborg is, and what he can do.
As part of last night’s preview of DC’s movie universe on the CW we got our introduction to Victor Stone, the man who will be Cyborg. While the only images that we have are hand drawn, as nothing has been filmed yet, the images still give us a good idea of what Ray Fisher will look like when he transforms into the character. Fisher also gave us some details about what Cyborg will be able to do, and the toll that it will take upon him.
He is a technopath, which means he can just interface seamlessly with anything technological. His greatest weakness is actually trying not to succumb to the technology. Trying to stay human.
While the character of Cyborg has been around since 1980, he has really come into his own in the modern era, when the information age has made the character a serious data cruncher. According to the CW Dawn of the Justice League special, that will be a major part of his character as Cyborg apparently never sleeps, instead spending all his time taking in data.
The origin story of Cyborg will be similar to what we have seen in the comics in the past. Victor Stone will be a high school athlete who is in some sort of accident. The exact nature of the accident was not mentioned, of course. However, Stone’s father is able to save his son’s life by transforming his son into a half-man/half-machine Cyborg.
We’re certainly looking forward to learning more about Victor Stone and Cyborg. His technological aspects will make him very different than the other members of the Justice League. Check out all the details we have in the video below.
