Cyborg Origins Changed From Comics In ‘Justice League’

Justice League Ray Fisher CyborgIt looks like the DCEU is taking some creative license with Cyborg’s origin in Justice League.

Coming off the heels of the revelation that The Flash will still be a student in Justice LeagueComicBook.com has the quote, which comes from a Justice League promotional exhibit in the Philippines:

Part man, part machine, Victor Stone is a former star athlete at Gotham City University. After a horrific car accident nearly cost him his life, he was saved when his father, scientist Silas Stone, used an Apokolitian Mother Box to reconstruct his body. In the process, Silas turned Victor into a human computer, organic with biomechatronic body parts. In other words, a Cyborg.

Fans of the character will note that Cyborg was originally created when a monster was summoned from another universe, completely destroying Stone’s body. In the New 52, Cyborg was born when a Father Box from Apokolips exploded. While this new origin is different, it is easier for general audiences to relate to as it gives it a more common “tragic superhero origin story.”

In Justice League, fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder with post-production duties handled by Joss Whedon. The film stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jeremy Irons and Jesse Eisenberg.

Justice League hits theaters on November 11, 2017.
