    I swear i detected just the faintest hint of "Colonel H. Stinkmeaner" from the Boondocks in Khary Paytons Cyborg from Teen Titans. Just a pinch lol.


    Thank you for sharing

Itís like the cool jock who finally accepts the fact that heís actually a nerd.

    The show has done such a great job of portraying Vic and Silasí dynamic.
    Heard nothing but good things about Doom Patrol and Cyborg's portrayal on it, I would've started watching it long ago if I didn't have so many other things I need to binge already. lol

    I've seen a few clips of DP, and it does look like a ton of weird ass fun, and I like how they handle Vic. But I don't have the time to watch the stuff I already have in que so Doom Patrol just isn't gonna happen. Not any time soon anyway.

    I do plan on getting HBOMax once Young Justice 4 is up and running (watching that is a tradition with my son) so maybe I'll try to catch up with DP then......

    Fact that DC isn't using Vic still boggles my mind. You look at threads like this, and there's so many great ideas out there for him. Makes me wish DC did some kind of "play to pay" fanfic thing, where people could put their work out there and if it proves popular, have it used on a professional level, with some minor royalty payout or something.

    Cyborg on Doom Patrol is awesome. He's basically the only actual hero and the only one competent at it. The acting is great, particularly the scenes with his father, AND he's shown as sexually active and he's just cool. He's a nice, suave, cool, tolerant of weirdos, and super intelligent hero and man and absolutely a joy to watch on screen. And he's fine, regardless of faceplate. Best portrayal of Vic anywhere, imo.

    All of this^

    There's an existing Cyborg fanbase that knows how they want to see Victor depicted, how they want him written and will pay for the content. If DC doesn't have concrete plans for him there *are* writers / creatives who can and would step up to provide character direction and content. Even if the tales were non canon but written and drawn well i have the utmost confidence they would be well received.

    If DC doesn't want to do the work regarding Cyborg simply step aside and let someone else who knows what they are doing handle the character and *profit from that work*. Everyone wins.

    To turn away profit while not actually doing anything with the character strikes me as odd at the very least.

    Regarding Doom Patrol - i've seen every episode and season 2 was very meta. It's a well written show. The way Cyborg is visually depicted is ...fine.....but it's secondary to the actors performance and the script. It's good enough to forget about everything else you may not like.

    This is strange. Last week on amazon.com Cyborg vol. 1 The Imitation of Life (Rebirth) written by John Semper Jr. was listed as being #603 in DC Comics and Graphic Novels. And David F. Walker's Cyborg vol. 1 Unplugged was listed as being some where in the 2000s range in DC Comics and Graphic Novels. But this week Cyborg vol. 1 written by John Semper jr. is # 1,466 and Cyborg vol. 1 Unplugged by David F. Walker is now # 776 in DC Comics and Graphic Novels. I wonder what's causing the massive swing in sales? Maybe Zach Snyder's Justice League?

    That tends to happen to certain titles that are not in the top 300 or so.

    And are you looking at trade paper back or Kindle sales.

    Comixology has a hand in that as well. And that is where Kindle fits in.

    Semper's Cyborg is now unlimited read on Comixology. Along with his other 2 volumes going for $5. each.

    Walker is $5 each with single issues at $1.69.

    It's 9:30 in my state and Walker's Cyborg volume is now

    This is amazing. All the way back in 1863 author Samuel Butler wrote a book titled 'the Book of Machines'. According to wikipedia he thought that machines will eventually surpass human intelligence, become sentient and dominate and control humans on Earth. So he advocated destroying all machines and living a more primal life. In Cyborg Rebirth written by John Semper jr. the evolution of machines in rulers over mankind was the central theme.

    Butler's work is probably a precursor the creation of cyborgs and other works such as the Darwin among machines by George Dyson and Man-Computer Symbosis by J.C.R. licklider.

    Cyborg in Doom Patrol has awesome personality but is VERY low tech compared to his comics. It really grates me.
