Remember the "New" Teen Titans: Cyborg
written by Chuck Wells

For the second part of my “Remember the Titans” featurette, let’s take a look at Victor Stone who was created by writer Marv Wolfman and artist George Pérez, and who made his first appearance as Cyborg in DC Comics Presents #26 (October 1980).

Victor Stone’s parents were scientists who had subjected their son to various intelligence enhancement techniques throughout his young life. Eventually, Victor grew to resent these treatments and he pursued athletics, which his parents disapproved of, and he then fell into lawlessness through an unfortunate acquaintance. Victor was also talked into participating in a street gang fight in which he was wounded, for the most part however, Victor still had a largely normal life under the circumstances, but he refused to follow his best friend's grandiose plans of racially-motivated terrorism.
