Young Justice Wiki

Victor Stone is a former star pupil and athlete from Detroit and the son of STAR Labs scientist, Silas Stone.[3] Following an explosion that left him with fatal injuries, his father saved his life by using a Fatherbox, which fused with his body.[4] After coming to terms with his condition, Victor adopted the codename Cyborg and joined the Outsiders.[5] He later became a member of the Justice League.[6][7]


Victor has shown to be a single-minded individual. Looking at a promising career in professional football, he was focused on performing well and would not indulge himself with minor distractions.[3] However, after constantly feeling neglected by his workaholic father, Silas Stone, Victor has come to resent him but has made attempts to reconcile. Because of his accident, Victor has shown to be prone to sudden bouts of rage, usually aimed at Silas and chose to distance himself from the latter.[4] After his father tried to save him from Metron, Victor decided to forgive him once the Fatherbox was fully cleansed.[8]

After his accident, Victor initially regarded himself as a freak and ignored the fact that his cybernetics saved his life but ruined his future.[4] However, he has come to accept his condition and now sees his new abilities as a gift.[5]

Physical appearance

Victor is a black man with, brown eyes, and a lean, muscular build. His hair is black and kept in a buzz cut with a surgical line that begins on his temples, runs slightly upwards and then bee-lines around his head, coalescing at the back. He also has a widow's peak hairline.[3]

After the STAR Labs accident, Victor's injuries were repaired by a Fatherbox, which replaced the damaged parts of his body with cybernetic prosthetics, namely the left sides of his head, face, torso, and left forearm. When he became possessed by Fatherbox, the red light on his cybernetic eye, chest core and circuitry changed to purple.[4] After Fatherbox's attempted hostile takeover, the prosthetics expanded into more parts of his body, covering more of his head, neck and parts of his right arm.[8]

The Steve Lombard Sports Show
September 08, 11:04 EDT

Victor's talents as a wide receiver caught the attention of Steve Lombard, who touted him as a promising up-and-comer for the upcoming Football season.[9]

October 12, 07:55 EDT

Victor called his father to remind him of his very important game later that night and to say that it would mean a lot if he could be there that time.

Later on, at the locker room Victor rolled his eyes out at his friends Ron and Sebastian's shenanigans and prepared himself for the game.

October 12, 23:18 EDT

After winning the match, Victor celebrated at Pingree's Ice Cream Shop with his teammates. He checked on his phone only to find that his father, who hadn't shown up, didn't even leave him a message. At that time, he was approached by Bash Bashford, a scout from Metropolis University who lauded his performance and tried to poach him to enroll in his college, saying he had a promising future.[3]

October 15, 07:16 EDT

Victor's lab accident.

Victor barged in STAR Labs to berate his father for being at work all the time and missing his game. He went on to accuse Silas of giving more importance and attention to his work than to him. Victor ultimately gave up on arguing with his father and walked away. On this way out, he accidentally wedged a power cable behind the door, causing it to disengage from the Reach device to which it was connected. Realizing what was about to happen, Victor looked at his father and said "Dad", before being blown up.

Silas tries to save Victor's life with a Fatherbox.

Victor was buried under rubble and sustained severe injuries from the explosion. The left side of his torso and head were maimed and his internal organs exposed. Lying in a puddle of his own blood and struggling to breath, Victor looked at his father and shed a tear. Silas rushed to place the Fatherbox on his chest and it immediately proceeded to wrap Victor in a cocoon, which shaped itself into a pod. At that point, Victor had no heart or brain function and the Fatherbox replaced his missing flesh and skin with cybernetic prosthetics, thus resuscitating him. After some time, the pod opened and released Victor.

Victor couldn't remember what had happened, but upon seeing his implants he was overcome with a murderous rage and turned on Silas. When he was about to strike a deadly blow, Violet Harper appeared on the scene.

Victor contemplates everything he's gained and lost.

Distracted from his father, Victor called her an abomination and charged at her. In the ensuing fight, Victor got knocked out by a deflected blast, which gave Violet enough time to administer a healing cleanse. Victor regained control of his actions and begged Violet to remove his prosthetics. Silas said he could not live without them and proposed they worked together to find out how the Fatherbox worked. Victor was not interested in being his father's lab experiment and accused him of turning him into a freak and ruining his future. He decided to go with Violet, fearing that his resentment would make him hurt his pleading father though ensures he knows that the anger he feels is his own. He followed Violet into a boom tube and traveled to Happy Harbor High School, where they encountered Megan Morse and Fred Bugg. Victor somberly contemplated the Football field's goal post and glanced at this metallic arm.[4]

Happy Harbor
October 15, 19:21 EDT

Super-Cycle looms in on Victor.

He went with Violet, Megan, and Fred to Conner's house to meet with the rest of the gang. Victor was surprised none of them were off-put by his look, but he was shocked to see Fred's true appearance. While the group debated Violet's origins, Victor asked what he had to do with any of that and said he just wanted to go back to his normal life. No sooner than he mentioned a Fatherbox, the Super-Cycle turned hostile and trained his guns on him. Victor's Fatherbox took over his body and attacked the Cycle. Before the fight escalated, Violet performed another cleanse on Victor, returning him back to normal. When Jefferson suggested he went back to his father, Victor vehemently refused, saying his father was the reason he was in that state. Megan and Conner ultimately agreed to take him in.[1]

Happy Harbor
October 31, 17:42 EDT

Victor reluctantly agreed to go with Fred, Violet, and Brion to the Happy Harbor High School Halloween dance, mostly because no one knew him there and his prosthetics could be mistaken for a costume. However, the dance was canceled when Dick summoned everyone for a mission and instructed Violet to stay with Victor in case he needed another cleanse.

Overpowered by Fatherbox, Victor creeps up on Violet/Motherbox.

Victor stayed at home with Violet and Helga Jace, gazing at his cellphone. He was rather uncomfortable listening to Jace talking to Violet about hormones and feelings. As she explained that Violet was vulnerable because of her human emotions, Victor was suddenly overcome by the Fatherbox and attempted to kill Violet. He knocked Wolf and Jace out and told Violet that a Motherbox could not handle human emotions, which was why Violet could not cleanse him right then. Fatherbox chased her through the house and when he found her, Victor's personality resurfaced and fought for control of his body.

Violet purges Fatherbox from Victor.

He told Violet to run but Fatherbox overpowered him again. This time Violet decided not to run, and despite Fatherbox's threats and taunting, Violet found a way to tap into her powers again and cleansed Fatherbox from Victor's body.[10]

Happy Harbor
November 01, 03:16 EDT

Victor informed Nightwing and the others that Violet had permanently cleansed him of Fatherbox's control.[10]

Mount Justice
November 04, 10:21 EST

Victor joined Violet, Brion, Forager, and Tara at the beach for breakfast and a meeting with Dick, Conner, and Artemis. Dick told Victor that he still had to make up his mind about what to do with his life, and proceeded to invite the others to join the Team. Victor turned to his phone for most of their speech, until Artemis got emotional while talking about Wally. Then he turned his attention back to his phone when Aquaman began a press conference about the Goode Goggles.[11]

Happy Harbor
November 06, 20:20 EST

Inside the RV, Brion was very excited about having been to the Watchtower and tried to suggest Victor to join them sometime, but Victor was not interested and said all he wanted was his own room and to get his life back. He claimed that if he had to hear Brion's phone receiving another text message from Violet, he might go "all Fatherbox" on everyone. Right then, Brion got a text from Violet and asked Victor how he knew. Victor claimed he made an educated guess because she was always texting him, and walked out of the RV looking disconcerted.[11]

Happy Harbor
November 22, 16:00 EST

While Megan, Conner, and Forager prepared Thanksgiving dinner, Victor was brooding inside the RV. Later, Forager approached him, elated about Earth holidays, but his enthusiasm wasn't reciprocal and Victor walked away. Forager went after Victor and invited him to join them for Thanksgiving dinner. Victor lashed out, claiming he had no "hive" and couldn't be helped. Forager posited that "caterpillar-Vic" could not be helped, but "butterfly-Vic" could. Victor sent Forager away and stayed behind, but Forager's words eventually resonated with him and later he joined the group for dinner.[12]

December 04, 17:48 PST

Victor moved into the Premiere Building, along with the newly formed Outsiders, where he was given his own bedroom. He watched as the team were fighting ships belonging to the Reach and was pleased by their success.[13]

Victor gradually became even more secluded, so much so that Beast Boy remarked that he seldom saw Vic, despite living in the Premiere Building himself.[14]


January 1, 2019, 00:01 PST

While walking the streets, Vic received a phone call from his father. Vic reacted poorly, having requested his father leave him alone, and hung up. Vic then experienced some severe pain and ducked into an alleyway.[8]

January 2, 2019, 04:16 PST

Fred found Vic in the alley, and was shocked to see the Fatherbox tech had spread further. Fred helped Vic back to the Premiere Building.

Helga took Vic to the medical bay to examine him. Superboy then turned up with Dreamer who used a Motherbox to assess Vic's situation. They recommended they find Metron and use his Mobius Chair to help Vic, and in the meantime, Vic should avoid stress. Conner, Forager and Jeff set off to find Metron.

Later, Vic heard his father arrive via Zeta-Tube and was furious, causing the Fatherbox tech to spread further still. Silas was eventually able to convince Vic to accept his help, and he put Vic into a medically induced coma to stall the Fatherbox.

Conner and the others returned with Metron, but Metron was only interested in watching the conclusion of Vic's takeover. Conner and Jeff decided they didn't need Metron and held him off, while Silas, Brion and Helga put Vic into the Mobius Chair, which proceeded to cleanse Vic of the Fatherbox's soul and replace the tech with Mobius tech.

After confirming Vic was stable, Silas turned to leave, but Vic pulled him back into a hug. They later continued their reconciliation, talking as Conner and Forager looked on.[8]

January 21, 17:32 PST

Silas was ready to leave after visiting Vic, and asked if he was sure about staying at the Premiere Building. Vic was sure it was the right place for him. Both were then surprised by the arrival of a condiment covered Beast Boy.

Later, Vic showed off his increased control with his abilities to Gar, including an arm cannon inspired by Blue Beetle. Vic had been working with Megan on processing his new situation, and had finally reached acceptance. Gar then decided to test Vic's strength, and he sent 225 lbs in weights through the roof.

Later, in the Hub, Vic and Violet both sensed the distress of a Motherbox under attack. Vic opened a boom tube to the source and they, Gar and Brion went through to Gretchen Goode's house. They found a Motherbox being shot at by a wall mounted laser, which Vic soon crushed. Violet healed the Motherbox and then cleansed Dick and Jeff of Gretchen's mind control. Vic then opened a boom tube to allow everyone to retreat to the Premiere Building.[15]

January 22, 02:21 PST

Victor had pancakes at a café with members of the Team and Outsiders, clearing space at the Premiere Building for Dick's friends and family while he was suffering the severe after-effects of exposure to Gretchen's X-Pit.

They returned to the Premiere Building in time to hear Jeff's outburst as he realized that Batman, Aquaman, Nightwing and others had secretly planned the breakup of the Justice League, coordinated the various teams and manipulated the Outsiders to their own ends. Vic was relatively unaffected by the news, and at one point watched the ensuing chaos while eating popcorn with Forager.

Later, he listened as Brion and Tara returned from an attempted kidnapping, and detailed how Helga had betrayed them and Violet was now in Gretchen Goode's hands, where she would be used to spread the Anti-Life Equation.[16]

January 25, 14:28 PST

Vic was present at the Premiere Building as members of the Team and the Outsiders discussed their failure to find Violet. Since Vic, Sphere and Motherbox were all unable to sense her, it was assumed she was off-world.[17]

January 25, 17:16 PST

Vic joined the Outsiders on the Bio-Ship. Using his cybernetic abilities, he had found that Building 16 of the Goode World Studios lot had no network connectivity. As he explained this to his comrades, he found he had the ability to project holograms. Vic also detected an Apokoliptan signature in the building. He opened a boom tube for the team to go in.

Inside, Gar reminded Vic that he didn't need to join them, but Vic felt indebted to Violet for the times she had cleansed him. Kid Flash found the building to be clear, but Vic was able to deactivate a hologram camouflaging a large, strange device. Before they could do anything else, the squad was boom tubed into the X-Pit.

In the X-Pit, Vic was able to reach and enter the cyberspace of Overlord. After realizing that nothing that happened there was real and that it was all a battle of willpower, Vic was able to defeat Overload. He returned everyone to the studio lot. With Blue Beetle's help, Vic destroyed the alien device, causing Gretchen and Overlord to disappear. Vic quickly traced where they were going and opened a boom tube, going through alone.[5]

The Orphanage
January 26, 02:48 UTC

Vic emerged at the Orphanage to see Gretchen and Granny Goodness merging back into a single body. With Granny distracted, Vic shot the cerebral leash off of Violet. Now free, Violet then freed everyone else from the Anti-Life Equation. Then Vic, Violet and the Leaguers destroyed Granny's Ghost Dimension device. After Granny's minions were apprehended and the captive meta-humans rescued, Vic opened a boom tube to return the Team home.[5]

January 26, 06:54 PST

At the Premiere Building, Vic and the others returned to find the Outsiders waiting for them. Though Vic felt it was Violet who had saved them, Violet insisted Vic was the hero of the day. Gar then opened a vote on Vic joining the Outsiders, which was met with unanimous approval, but Conner insisted Vic needed to make up his own mind. Vic, noting he had never been afraid of the spotlight, decided to join and took the name Cyborg, in acceptance of what he now was.[5]

February 14, 18:03 PST

While Violet babysat Lian Nguyen-Harper, Vic and Gar watched the news at the Premiere Building, as it played the video Vic had provided of Granny and Gretchen merging, and announced Cyborg joining the Outsiders. Later, they watched an interview with Geo-Force.

Later, Metron appeared and quickly boom tubed away with Vic, Violet and Lian.[18]

-------- --, --:-- ---

Vic and the others found themselves floating in a strange dimension outside of regular space and time. He and Violet could only speak in the "pings" of Mother and Fatherboxes. Metron explained that, as creator of the Mother and Fatherboxes, he viewed them as his grandchildren and was looking forward to watching their development, assuming Darkseid did not kill them as they represented a potential obstacle to his plans. Metron then returned them to the Premiere Building.[18]

February 16, 01:33 EET

Cyborg was part of Alpha Squad, for the joint Team/Outsiders mission to respond to the coup in Markovia. He opened a boom tube, allowing Alpha to surprise Baron Bedlam in the Palace after Beta flushed him out. After Geo-Force and Bedlam tumbled out through a window, Cyborg was contacted by Jeff, who gave him a new mission.

After Terra started to attempt to kill Beast Boy on Deathstroke's orders, only to turn against him and throw away her comm, Vic picked up the comm and tapped into it, following the signel back to its source, where he and Jeff found Deathstroke with Lex Luthor. Cyborg then hacked their files, getting incriminating evidence of Luthor running LexCorp in defiance of UN regulations and his involvement in meta-human trafficking.

Cyborg could only look on as Brion killed Bedlam, then claimed the throne for himself.

Later, Jeff and Cyborg presented the evidence against Luthor at a meeting of the UN General Assembly.[19]

The Watchtower
February 24, 19:00 EST

Cyborg was present during a meeting of the Justice League, the Team, the Outsiders and Batman's team, where Black Lightning was elected as the League's new leader.[19]

February 26, 15:15 EST

In the locker room at Henry Heywood High School, Ron Evers picked on Cisco Ramon, but Vic came to Cisco's defense.[19]


Cyborg joined the Justice League.[6][7] He moved out of the Premiere Building.[20]


The Watchtower
March 23, 01:28 EDT

Cyborg and Superman monitored the Earth end of the test of Mars's new Zeta-Tube. As Martian Manhunter arrived, they lost contact with the Martian Science Center. Superman suggested Cyborg boom tube them to Mars to find out what went wrong, but since Cyborg had never been to Mars and had no exact coordinates he could not do so safely. Superman contacted Steel to arrange for the Javelin to return, but was interrupted when Em'ree J'onzz re-established contact. It was short lived however, as the M'arzz-Earth Communications Satellite was destroyed, ending the call before Cyborg could establish a lock on their coordinates.[6]

The Watchtower
March 24, Unknown EDT

Superman demanded Cyborg open a boom tube to his home due to a family "emergency".[21]

September 09, 19:08 MDT

Vic went to a monthly group therapy session led by Dinah, also attended by Lia, Violet, Tara, Leslie, Andie and Gar. When Violet expressed difficulty handling the possibility of a new romantic relationship due to their unresolved feelings for Brion, Vic suggested contacting him to gain closure, but Dinah reminded him not to give advice. Instead he offered his own experience from when he was having problems with his father. He was happy to see how Gar was getting better, in part thanks to his new support dog.

He later attended the dedication ceremony for the new Hall of Justice.[22]

Happy Harbor
September 16, post-16:16 EDT

Cyborg attended Conner and M'gann's wedding.[23]

The Watchtower
November 09, 21:07 PST

Cyborg watched as Black Lightning participated in a leadership meeting about Perdita Vladek's abduction, where King Brion barred the League from entering Markovia. Cyborg wanted to help, but Lightning reminded him that as a Leaguer he was too high profile, and that was what their covert team was for.[24]

November 11, 12:32 PST

At the Premiere Building, Cyborg saw off the Outsiders as they took the Super-Cycle on a mission to rescue Perdita Vladek.[25]


Victor's cannon charging up.

  • Mobius-cybernetic enhancements: Victor's biology was altered after merging with a Fatherbox, whose "soul" attempted to take over Victor's mind and body time and again.[4][1][10][8] However, thanks to the combined efforts of Halo and the Mobius Chair, the Fatherbox's soul was removed from Victor's body and returned to the Source, altering his mechanics to be Mobius technology instead, as well as giving him full control of his new cybernetics.[8]
    • Bionic enhancements: Victor has many abilities he has yet to discover from his cybernetics. Several of them include hologram projection, self-repair for his mechanical parts, and adaptation allowing his bionics to change over time. Victor confesses that this is all new to him, implying that he is capable of more in the future.
    • Super strength: Victor's left arm is strong enough to launch a 225-pound weight up to several stories.[15] After Father Box mechanizes his body further, Victor becomes capable of even greater feats of strength.
    • Cybernetic eye: His left human eye was replaced with a cybernetic eyepiece that can scan and analyze his surroundings.[4] After his Mobius tech upgrade, Victor can also detect heat signatures.
    • Cannon: The palm of his cybernetic left hand unfolds to reveal a cannon that can shoot powerful energy blasts.[4] After his Mobius-upgrade, Victor gained better control over his prosthetics and with Jaime's help, he managed to change his entire forearm into a bigger cannon.[15]
    • Technopathy: Victor is able to mentally control technology around him.[10] He seemingly can even detect incoming communications, as he was able to sense that Brion was getting a text from Violet before it sent. After his upgrade with Mobius-tech, Victor's technopathic abilities are significantly magnified. He is now able to access any sort of electronic signal or device, whether it would be Earth or Alien technology. He has even used this in conjunction with his boom tubes to track Granny Goodness to her space station several lightyears away.
    • Boom tube: Victor can open a stable boom tube at will.[15] He must know the destination or have a set of coordinates, or else he risks opening the boom tube in a solid object.[6]
