Synopsis: Although Vic Stone is a star athlete he yearns for his father’s approval. However, his father was too focused on his experiments. One day Vic suffers from a grave injury and his father saves his life by replacing half his body with cybernetic parts. Now Cyborg is plugged into every computer on Earth and no firewall – or brick wall can keep him out. While his cybernetic enhancements provide superhuman strength, speed and endurance, that same technology destroys his chances to live as a professional athlete. Now flourishing the digital realm, Vic is desperately alone in the physical world.
Alternate version: Although Victor Stone’s scientist parents encouraged Victor to pursue academic interests, he found athletic activity far more to his taste. During an experiment, Victor’s mother accidentally unleashed a creature from another dimension that killed her instantly and badly wounded Victor. While his wife died, Victor’s father managed to save his son by grafting cybernetic parts to Victor’s organs and computerizing synthetic nerve bases to his spine. Now half organic and half molybdenum steel, Victor feels alienated because he can no longer compete athletically.
