This Cyborg clearly didn't go "WHY COULDN'T YOU LET ME DIE?" upon waking up with cybernetics like EVERY OTHER VERSION besides mine and TTG's. It's literally been the same thing for years; I want Cyborg to have a more positive approach to his cybernetics at first.
    Standard blessing and curse scenario. Waking up to find your mother dead and your body so horribly mutilated that 90% of you no longer exists isn't exactly a pleasant scenario. Vic did what most people in his situation would have done. Because, in the heat of the moment, he's not seeing it as a super power. He's not thinking "Oh wow this is awesome! Now I can fight crime!". He's thinking about the mother he just lost. The body he just lost. His normal life was over. His potential football career that he worked so hard for was over. His humanity was essentially over. He'd be spending the rest of his life completely unable to blend in with society. Eventually he was able to move on and embrace what life had dealt him but it took finding his new calling as a hero and finding friends who could look past his appearance and help him grow and eventually embrace it.

    It's part of what made Vic such a great character. He took one of the shittiest things that could possibly happen to someone, coped with the loss, and came out stronger. His hardships in the beginning make his journey all the more impactful. He kinda loses everything that made his story special if he's treating everything that happened to him like it was the coolest thing ever.

    In my version, Cyborg still has his mother, and also... HE ASKS FOR CYBERNETICS.

    Well, I guess we had Teen Titans cartoon Cyborg who only occasionally angsted about his cybernetics (but not much) though they never covered his origin on the show.

    I can't fault YJ for what it's doing since at least it's directly going into the core of the character.

    He was frustrated since nobody accepted him with his cybernetics. Look, I just want it to be 2019 instead of 1980 and people to accept Cyborg, who's happy he has a cool robotic body and both his parents are alive.

    He's number #1000 on Characters Who Have a Depressing Backstory. Let's just have a happy character for a change.

    I mean, there are plenty of happy characters, and Cyborg eventually gets to that point, that's just not who he was at inception.

    It's not the Young Justice creative team's job to be faithful to your fan fiction version of Cyborg. All these things you dislike about the character have been there since the beginning.

    what rational man would like being a cyborg, people being scared of you
    no longer being able to do what makes you happy

    It sucks, he not like Starfire a giant orange lady the world accepts because she is beautiful and she become a world famous model and be accepted

    The problem is that the comic writers forget this. YJ Cyborg hasn't reached the self acceptance phase yet.

    There are people who are actually like Cyborg in the real world with more than one limb missing such as wounded warriors and also with severe facial wounds. There was a chef I saw on a cooking show about a year ago that had his right side/ribs removed and replaced with prosthetics. And just recently I read an article about how amputees are now using 'futuristic type limbs' which looked very similar to Cyborg's. Amputees are now ditching the plastic human looking prosthetics. Atleast some are. I don't think that anyone should be afraid of Cyborg. If Cyborg was in the real world he wouldn't have a face plate. That's just a comic book thing.article-0-0E52288700000578-216_468x431.jpg

    Article @ amputee-coalition.org titled 'Neuroprosthetic Limbs:Exploring the Future of Prosthetics talks about the rapid advancement of prosthetics.

    Yes yes, their are people like him, this s usually Cyborg first big arc remembering he is not so different after all, except he tends to become more machine then man as time goes on so he has to relearn the lesson again. DC always made a bad choice picking him as their token for JL, no one gets hyped for the dude who is first to be torn apart because he can just be put back together, its as if he is worth less then the other members
    He's a mess
