Post-Flashpoint[edit | edit source]
Early life[edit | edit source]
At some unknown point in time, Victor's mother died, and he was taken care of by his father solely. He later went on to become a high school football star, though his father disapproved. He was nicknamed "Victory".
Victor Stone and his high school football team were playing against another team in the state finals with Victor's team winning and heading to nationals. Victory looked up to see if his father arrived, but he only saw Billy Batson sitting in his seat instead.
Later, in the locker room, Victor called his dad, hoping for him to call and later, when Billy Batson was running from security for sneaking into the game, Victor helped Billy hide in the locker room. Victor and Billy had a good conversation before Billy ran off with one of Victor's jerseys.
Victor later confronted his father, Silas, at S.T.A.R Labs. While Silas tried to shrug Victor off, Victor told Silas to make time. Victory told his father that people think he can play with the best of the best and asked his father why can't he think so too. Silas told Victor they were witnessing the birth of a new race of superhumans and in that world, throwing a football is a joke and that anything Victor did compared to them was obsolete. When Victor asked if his father would come to any of his games, Silas deliberately said no.
When the mother boxes activated, Silas ignored Victor and in anger, Victor stole the mother box his father was studying and the mother box exploded. Victor was hit with the energy. Barely alive, Victor was brought by his father to an advanced machine assembled by him from technology across the world. Silas attempted to use the machine to heal Victor, but the process ended up with the machine fusing to his body. At first, he was completely covered by metal, but some parts broke off his face during a battle with Parademons invaded the room. After defeating the Parademons with the help of Barry Allen, Victor was horrified at what he had become and criticized his father as making him another one of his experiments was what it took to finally care about him.
Victor went into the next room and found a mother box where he learned of the Parademons' history and plans of terraforming worlds for their leader, Darkseid. Victor placed the mother box in his robotic arm for safe-keeping.
Later, Victor arrived in Metropolis with the Flash, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and Superman. His former becomes sleeker after he crash-lands in front of the yet-to-be-formed Justice League. Wonder Woman, thinking Victor was a Parademon, attacked him, but Victor's armor blasted Wonder Woman back. Superman planned to attack Victor with his heat vision, but Cyborg insisted he was not with the Parademons. The Flash stopped Superman from attacking and vouched for Victor. Shazam arrived and claimed he was with Victor, but Victor denied it. Cyborg then explained to the heroes that the Parademons planned to terraform the Earth and witness the arrival of their leader, Darkseid. After Darkseid defeated the heroes one by one, Superman was captured and Batman went to rescue him from Apokolips.
Green Lantern gathered the heroes together and Cyborg agreed that they should work together as a team. The heroes planned to blind Darkseid, and when the Flash asked about the invasion, Cyborg said he might be able to send them back where they came from which was good enough for Green Lantern.
Cyborg and Shazam talked and Cyborg questioned how Shazam knew him, Shazam said he was a fan and everyone knows "Victory Stone". Victor claimed he was not that guy any more and called himself "A terminator, an android, some kind of Cyborg." Cyborg insisted he didn't have a place anywhere any more. After saving a crowd of people with Shazam from Parademons, Shazam told Cyborg it looked like his place was with humans. Cyborg helped the heroes fight Darksied.
The heroes managed to blind Darkseid but he still fought back. Cyborg came up with the idea to send Darkseid home by speaking the language of the mother boxes. Cyborg flew into the sky for altitude and activated the mother box, sending the Parademons back to Apokolips but leaving Darkseid who fought to stay on Earth. Cyborg tried to close the portal but the mother box didn't respond repeatedly until Shazam helped Cyborg power the mother box to close the portal, trapping Darkseid and sending him to Apokolips. The aftershock blasted both Cyborg and Shazam who turned back into Billy Batson, the kid Victor saved before. Cyborg caught Billy and left him in an apartment building. Billy asked Cyborg to keep his identity a secret and Cyborg agreed, calling it their secret.
Cyborg helped cover Billy Batson's identity by saying Shazam took off because he had a hot date. Later, as the heroes were congratulated for their efforts to stop Darkseid and his forces, Cyborg and Shazam talked. While being honored at Capital Hill along with the rest of the League, Victor looked into the crowd and saw Silas was there in the audience finally proud of his son and smiling at him, to which Victor smiled back. Victor shows the same disdain at the name "Super Seven" Shazam announces as the rest of the team.
Victor dreamed that he was human again, jogging with a girl until he saw his cyborg body, he refused to leave, but woke up and saw Dr. Sarah Charles in the room. She allowed him to call her Sarah and she said she just came to see him after the surgery he had. After Sarah left, Victor received a call from his father, but he ignored it. Colonel Steve Trevor came in and showed Victor the sounds of the attacked submarine. He resides at the Hall of Justice, which was built for the Justice League; however, only Shazam comes to visit. Cyborg explains that "there is no Justice League" - it's just something the human race came up with to make themselves feel safe. He also has had some of his remaining internal organs replaced with machinery, allowing him to spend extended periods underwater or in space. A former assistant of his father's, who has a crush on him, tries numerous times throughout the film to ask him on date, but her indirect methods fail. When Shazam tells Cyborg he's acting like his dad, both workaholics. Cyborg tells him he's not like his dad. Cyborg proves valuable as he can project images of what he's seen; this allows him to broadcasts Ocean Master's boasting about killing his mother, thus making the Atlanteans ally themselves with the hybrid Arthur Curry/Aquaman, the only other heir.
Justice League vs. Teen Titans[edit | edit source]
In the film, it is shown that he relates to the Titans more closely than the other members of the League, as he is closer in age to the teens. While he remains with the Justice League, he visits the Titans on occasion.

Cyborg is present during the Justice League's briefing over their planned attack on Darkseid and Apokolips. Unbeknownst to him and the rest of the Justice League, however, Darkseid was listening in on the briefing through Cyborg's Apokolyptian technology, becoming aware of their plan. The Justice League makes their way to Apokolips to battle Darkseid, with Cyborg offering to take the lead and transport the team's ships through the boom tubes. while the Teen Titans remain on Earth as a home-guard Upon arriving at Apokolips, the team is immediately attacked by Darkseid and his forces of Paradooms, genetic hybrids of Parademons and Doomsday. The Justice League's plan resulted in complete and utter failure as they are utterly decimated by the Paradooms. Cyborg managed to send a critically wounded Shazam back to Earth via boom tube, getting his arms ripped off by Darkseid soon after. While most of the Justice League were killed in battle, Cyborg is one of the only ones whose life was spared, as Darkseid had plans for him.
Two years later, the remaining forces of Earth invade Apokolips in order to shut down the planet's power and cause it to self-destruct, coming across Cyborg, who was forcefully fused into Apokolips itself and became subservient to Darkseid. John Constantine uses his magic to free Cyborg of his programming, but not of his bondage. After Batman was also freed, Cyborg warmly exclaims that it's good to have him back. While Superman, and subsequently Trigon, battles Darkseid, Cyborg hatches the plan of using Apokolips' technology to bring the Paradooms back to the planet, send the heroes back to Earth, and send Apokolips into a black void, along with Darkseid and his forces. Due to Cyborg being subjugated into Apokolips, he is forced to sacrifice himself to go through with the plan, as he saves the heroes and traps Darkseid, Trigon, the Paradoom army, and himself into a black void for all eternity.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Before becoming Cyborg, all Victor wanted to do was to make his dad proud by playing football.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Batman makes a note that Cyborg no longer has a stomach, despite being seen eating. When asked what happens to the food, Cyborg quips "you don't really want to know."
- Cyborg likely consumes food for pleasure, as it would help him feel human.
- The Cyborg from the Teen Titans TV series had been seen eating as well.
- His body armor softens in stages until he's settled into his normal look.
- Due to Throne of Atlantis and Doomsday, Cyborg has had his armor rebuilt at least twice.
- Unlike his Teen Titans GO! counterpart, Cyborg immediately joined the Justice League instead of being a part of the Teen Titans first.
- Cyborg is more likely built of Earth technology in the Original and Flashpoint Timelines.
- This version appeared in the film Teen Titans Go! vs Teen Titans, where he was shown not only possessing abilities he lacked in the main film but as a member of his world's Teen Titans. Because of this it is unknown if his non-speaking cameo in the film is truly canon. When he first appears his Go! counterpart makes fun of his 2003 Teen Titans counterpart by saying that the DCAMU was the truly serious version while the 2003 version was only trying to be serious. This is a meta joke as fans of the 2003 show often criticize the 2013 show for being too silly, with this providing the 2013 fans a chance to point out that the 2003 show was just as silly at times.
