Cyborg's History

Victor Stone is Cyborg, a high school student merged with a Mother Box when he was injured. He is a founding member of the Justice League.

Victor Stone was a high school athlete at odds with his brilliant scientist father Silas Stone. As the New God Darkseid initiated an invasion of Earth, Vic was caught in an explosion at S.T.A.R. Labs when a nearby Father Box detonated.

Vic's father saved his life by using experimental technology to turn him into a cyborg in the Red Room. Dr. Stone injected his son with nanites and installed experimental robotic parts . These included a Promethean skin graft, Dr. Will Magnus' Responsometer, Professor Ivo's A-maze operating system, the classified and prototypical B-maze operating system, and graduate student Ryan Choi's White Dwarf Stabilizer, as well as the energies from the Father Box. This allowed Vic to access the vast New Gods data library and discover Darkseid's true invasion plans.

When Vic first woke up after the accident, he could not move his legs and discovered his new robotic body. The Red Room was attacked by a group of Parademons; before they could hurt Sarah Charles, Cyborg's defense system's reacted automatically, causing his arm to shift into a sonic cannon. He destroyed the creatures, along with half the building. Vic, mortified at what his father had turned him into to save his life, escaped through the hole in the wall, with his father's calls to stay falling on deaf ears.
