Out of all the members of the Justice League, no one has as much of a painful origin on both the physical and mental fronts as Victor Stone AKA Cyborg (Ray Fisher).
In the footage shown in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, we see the Mother Box reanimate the Victor’s body which eventually brings him his new abilities as Cyborg. Given that he is one of the younger members of the Justice League, he deals with the struggles of both his abilities and dealing with the responsibilities of being an adult.
Cyborg’s struggle is unique from the rest of the team. While speaking to Geek Magazine, Ray Fisher discussed how Cyborg’s struggles will help him develop as a hero along with his fellow teammates in the Justice League:
“With the situation that Victor’s gone through, he’s lost more than his body. He cannot potentially have the kind of family that a lot of people would want. So there’s a much different struggle than the rest of the crew, because they can take their costumes off. They can live a normal life. They can hang up the cowl, they can hang up the capes or the helmets and whatever and just go off and be whoever it is that they want to after that point. But Cyborg doesn’t have that luxury. Being able to see that sort of massive setback, yet seeing the guy overcome it, reconnect with humanity, while reconnecting with himself, is powerful. And rebuild the relationship with his father who turned him into Cyborg, which essentially took a bad relationship and made it even worse. It’s just an opportunity to watch this person, this superhero, who basically overcomes tremendous trauma and has every right to basically say ‘Screw the world!’ but doesn’t.”

5 Reasons Warner Bros. Needs To Fast-Track The ‘Man Of Steel’ Sequel
Superman is a pop culture icon. The character was introduced to the masses in 1938. Eventually after radio shows, serials and animated adaptations, Superman became a movie icon following the release 1978’s Superman: The Movie. The seminal superhero film, directed by Richard Donner and starring Christopher Reeve, was followed by three sequels and one spin-off. In 2006, Bryan Singer brought Superman back to the silver screen with Superman Returns. The movie was divisive so it was back to the drawing board for Warner Bros. and DC Comics. Eventually, Zack Snyder was brought on board for the next iteration of Superman: Man of Steel.
