    Default BOOYAH!! Cyborg Appreciation Thread '19

    I didn't see a new one, so I figured why not take a stab at it. Whether he's a member of the Teen Titans or the Justice League. We love Victor Stone. This is the thread for all things Cyborg.

    He's okay there. And he's not a background character who's only there to teleport people left and right.

    I want to like Cyborg, but it feels like DC's mishandling of the character has pretty much broken the concept for me and I don't see them fixing it anytime soon.



    However, I am loving JLO so far. Vic hasn't blown me away yet but it could still happen.

    I have a genuine interest in Cyborg. If only DC did, too.

    A techno-path in the age of technology. It's almost too easy. Seems we just need a great writer who cares to advance the concept of what Cyborg is today. From the visuals, to the powerset, to the storyline and beyond.

    Can he show more flesh as he has in the past? It's all tech anyway so, why not? Can he be more than just a former football player? Does he carry any celebrity? Any business endeavors? Love interests? Let's answer some questions.

    YJ this Friday and then doom patrol. They are pushing him on the small screen,wish his movie prospects would be better though, maybe he just needs to guest on another movie, look awesome and then he can get his own movie.

    In the modern world he is 1 of the more powerful characters on the planet, I mean he is less robocop now, and more skynet in potential, and the fact that he can upgrade himself constantly should also give him top tier and beyond status

    I just hope he doesn't look like a transformer. Since this might be the intro of Cyborg we have to sit through lonely, angry, and mopey Cyborg again ugh. If we do I hope they take more of the Wolfman approach than the New 52 approach.

    Well, here's hoping they don't just re-use his design from the animated movies .

    Although Bourassa's done 2-3 different Cyborg designs so they'll probably go with what they feel is appropriate.

    Given the trend of the season his origin will probably still be tied to Apokolips.

    Both David Walker and and John Semper have done that (one nice thing the latter did was establish Vic had a background in video/computer gaming and game programing, including a gamer/game-programmer friend to boot, so he wasn't just a typical "football star" during his high school days). Rather it seems that DC's higher ups are the general collection of writers aren't interested in allowing the things they did with Cyborg to flourish past their respective runs.

    There's a preview image of him that has his arm and face looking more metallic:

    While such a progression for Vic's appearance is not a surprising course of events, I think the general point is that, hopefully, Vic's "final" Cyborg look will be one of slickness and sleekness, akin to what many feel a modern-day Vic/Cyborg with the kind of tec he's running with should loo like. And I get the feeling that's the kind of look Young Justice's Cyborg is headed towards.

Hopefully for the show they use the idea of him changing his appearance as needed for the situation like with the Ivan Reiss design from the Walker run.
    One direction of progression I would like for Cyborg in YJ is for him to unlock this ability as he gains more proficiency with his powers, along with more acceptance over who he has now become. I think that would make for a cool juxtaposed element to Cyborg's character progression.

    I also think the hoodie/or a hoodie could work. YJ could add some more detail elements to him and it would be fine. Again if he was older. I mean look at their version of Static.

    This isn't a costume. However, he to looks good enough to belong in the League in my opinion. Which makes me think that well thought out clothing could work.

    I really, really, really don't want to see that boxy element of Cyborg to return. The more robot then man element of Cyborg has always been the factor that made him the most boring and least likable of version of the character. The current design looks slick while at the same time heroic.
    While I do think they are or will progress Vic into a more Superhero-esque look for Cyborg, especially once he takes up the name, I would be find with it, provided they keep this level slick, sleek aesthetic in mind for his evolved appearance.

    Virgil/Static is kind of an exception, and I guess Wonder Girl, too. Even Superboy, as mentioned, feels like they are foreshadowing him taking up a more traditional Superhero look.

    Agreed 100%. Cyborg has a ton of potential that I feel DC is not accessing fully.
    We are the Dora Milaje. We are the daughters of the 18 tribes of Wakanda. We are the teeth of the Panther God. Out of 10,000 years of sweat and bloodshed and battle are we born. We are the women of this ancient land. Deadliest of the species. And our time has come!
