ON THEIR GRAND CANYON VACATION, CYBORG TELLS HIS ORIGIN STORY TO THE NEW TEEN TITANS

In Tales Of The New Teen Titans (1982) #1, we learn the origin story of Cyborg Pre-Crisis. On their Grand Canyon vacation, Kid Flash grills hot dogs for the New Teen Titans. During that time, Cyborg opens up to his “friends” and tells them his origin story.1 Previously, Victor Stone was the child of deceased Silas Stone and Elinore Stone. And his parents were research scientists involved on research to boost human intelligence. At a young age, the researchers experimented on their child.

Eventually, they boosted his intelligence to genius level. With an I.Q. of 170, Victor was tutored into the sciences with little external human contact. At age eight, Victor wandered the streets fascinated by the outside world. When Ron Evers save him from a car accident, the two forge a friendship. Soon, they would be involved in criminal activity. When the two were arrested for looting a grocery store, the seeds of Victor’s hatred for his parents were planted.

IN PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOL, VICTOR STONE BECOMES A STAR ATHLETE

Cyborg. DC Comics.

AFTER AN EXTRA-DIMENSIONAL ACCIDENT, VICTOR STONE BECOMES CYBORG

Previously, Robin received a vision of the New Teen Titans at S.T.A.R. Labs in DC Comics Presents (1980) #26. Mysteriously, Raven warns him of the accident that would result in Cyborg. In our issue, Victor Stone tells how he became Cyborg. In an extra-dimensional experimental accident, an alien spore killed Elinore Stone.

When Victor visited his parents on his morning jog, it was too late. Horrifyingly, the monster attacked digesting half of his body. In time, Silas Stone punched the recall button on the computer. In an explosion, the alien vanished in the dimensional rift. Quickly, Silas worked on grafting Victor’s muscles, bones and veins with army-grade molybdenum steel. Soon, he became Cyborg.

BECOMING CYBORG, VICTOR STONE IS HALF-MAN, HALF-MACHINE

After a month, Victor regained consciousness. Horrifyingly, he blamed his father for the accident and his monstrous condition. Despite his hatred, he worked with Silas to regain his mobility and grow in strength. After five months, Victor angrily cut ties with his father and moved out. At his new apartment, he soon lost his athletic career and his girlfriend Marcy Reynolds.

After a year in prison, Ron visited him. In fact, he offered him a job in a terrorist attack at the U.N. Though conflicted, Cyborg accepted. At night, the hero overheard the terrorists on the roof and their plan to scapegoat him. Courageously, he fought them and managed to send the bomb in the atmosphere. Though it blew safely, Cyborg could not save Ron, who fell off the building to his apparent death.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS AND SCORES


Critically, Static Shock #1 is the event that skyrocketed Static into superstardom in the DC Universe. Normally, a teenage genius, Virgil Hawkins becomes a black superhero. In the issue, Static has to face public distrust, protect his family and work undercover at S.T.A.R. Labs. Indeed, Static’s first issue starts with a bang! And let’s not forget the rise of the Slate Gang that has put the black superhero on notice.

This product has 13 global ratings with an average customer review rating of 4.7 out of 5.

One customer review said: “The main writer resigned after one issue- so I’m not sure what’s going on there- maybe some creative differences with others on the book team. The art is great; nice detail but a bit “cartoony” at times. I wonder if any comic artist alive can do a good job with African-american people- I haven’t seen any yet.

This one is worth jumping aboard with, althought the long-term direction is uncertain with the changing creative team. Static is a idea that merits a wider audience.”

There was one negative review. The negative review commented on the price: “I really didn’t want to pay this much finally found #1 #5 #7 #8 on midtown comic website for $2.39 I got 7 and 8 good quality and way cheaper.”

Overall, this comic was great.

CONCLUSION


POSITIVE:

  • Kindle and Comixology formats available.
  • 15% discount with Comixology Unlimited membership.
  • Good writing.

NEGATIVE:

  • Not enough customer review ratings.

OUR PRODUCT REVIEW RATING:


I recommend this comic as Static’s spectacular debut in the New 52.

CYBORG SUPERMAN DESTROYS COAST CITY

In ‘Superman’ (1993) #80, Eradicator is in Coast City helping put out a fire at Ferris Aircraft Warehouse. When he hears reports of an alien aircraft in Coast City, he decides to stay and investigate. In Metropolis, Cyborg Superman receives a message from the White House of the sighting in Coast City. When he learns that one of the Supermen is in the area, he suggests the impostor may be leading the aliens and departs for Coast City. Aboard the craft, Mongul orders to release the 77,000 carnage globes on the city. With ninety seconds to detonation!

As Eradicator flies through the carnage globes, he is intercepted by Cyborg Superman. Cyborg Superman blames him to be an impostor and to be the leader of the alien craft. Eradicator slightly denies the accusations, and as he turns his back flying away, Cyborg Superman attacks. Cyborg Superman fashions his right robotic arm into a gun and shoots Eradicator in the back. At that moment, Mongul orders all the carnage globes to be detonated. Fashioning his robotic arm into a cannon, Cyborg Superman blasts the Eradicator stating that he cares that Coast City be obliterated and that Eradicator be blamed for the deaths of seven million men and women. Cyborg Superman falls to a huge crater, in his energy form.

Mongul moves to the next phase and releases seeds in the ground that are to connect to build Engine City. The White House contacts Cyborg Superman and states it is not able to see past “the smoke and ash”.1 Cyborg Superman claims he “did everything possible to save Coast City.”1 Asked what he sees, Cyborg Superman says nothing is left and that he only sees a huge crater. Concerning the craft, Cyborg Superman claims he only saw a glimpse of it before it vanished.

On the other hand, the Eradicator has arrived at the Fortress of Solitude. He is protected by a suit and says he will survive in it. Cyborg Superman is on Warworld. Mongul arrives and asks for forgiveness for being behind schedule. Mongul kneels on his right knee and kisses Cyborg Superman’s right robotic hand. Cyborg Superman states: “And Metropolis is next!”1 Welcome to Warworld!
