    Default Cyborg: Human or Alien?

    Simple.enough. Should Vic's tech be home-grown or of alien origin?

    Start out as home grown, but he can upgrade it over the years.

    His tech should be of alien origin. There's something interesting about Vic being made out of tech that he doesn't understand.

    based on the lat 7 years ... alien. Also easier to part him on par with the rest of the League and would eliminate the stupid hacking and mutilation DC writers continually put him through

    This. While writers seem to can't help themselves, his tech getting alien should make him less susceptible to being mutilated and I think if he wasn't new god tech it would be harder to justify his place on the league. Plus if his tech was human based he'd be more likely to get wrecked everytime they face an alien with tech just to showcase how powerful they are.

    I say both. His dad used tech from the Red Room and the Mother Box upgrades him to basically a god of technology. The Red Room contained alien and human tech, so both.

    If alien tech were indestructible or unhackable, the League would fail every time they went up against an alien threat. Batman has beaten alien enemies with earth technology.

    point being alien tech should be hard to figure out than an iPhone or a PC which is the equivalent of how Victor is some times treated with the ease and which he's taken out of commission.

    It's also easier to digest his transformation and survival of his human anatomy.

    I would say a combination of earth and New God tech - just so it can be unique and that he's not so closely tied to the New Gods when he never was before.

    I always assumed that it was a combination of human and alien tech post New 52. Before that his tech was human but Cyborg upgraded over the years.

    In the future, his tech should be a combination of human and alien tech.

    I agree, I think it is better to have the Mother Box just absorb and assimilate Earth and alien/unknown technology and allows Vic to adapt it into his own system, like how New 52 did. It was cool seeing Vic also learning and growing new powers(i.e. flight, learning new language and origins) every day as well if it is handled well, which is one of the few good things the Justice League movie did with the character.

    A mixture of his dad's work at Star Labs and intervention from a Mother Box.

    Perfect balance.

    Again, it won't matter if it's alien or human. The technology is as strong as the writers want it to be. Humanity in Dc has produced all manner of advanced technology.

    That's kind of a moot point because it goes both ways; the difference being frequency. it's a very common trope for writers to present alien tech as being vastly superior to human tech and rarely the other way around unless it serves the story. Hell it's pretty common that even the greatest "human" tech usually end up having some kind of alien origin or component: Lex's apokolipian suit or Cyborg himself currently. I think his tech being alien or at least partially alien decreases the chances of him being dunked on every time a new alien with technology of significance moreso than if he was entirely composed of human technology. I never said it'd make him indestructible or unhackable (we've seen cyborg get slapped around by Murder Machine and Red Lion) but it makes him being busted up less likely from a narrative standpoint.
