In the DC Universe, Cyborg is the most technical advanced being on the planet-or so we thought. Introducing Mother Box 2.0: Robo-Dojo! Unlike Cyborg, these robots are piloted by the government's best, brightest, and most loyal soldiers. Super Heroes just got a major upgrade produced, developed and financed by S.T.A.R. Labs.

    Overall I thought Cyborg #21 was a great read! Not to complain but I'm glad that Cyborg is finally free of the doubts about himself that he had before in previous issues. It seems that Victor finally accepts who he is as man and machine and I think that part is what I enjoyed best about this book. We finally have Cyborg being sure of himself and being confident in who he is. I'm definitely looking forward to the next issue! Read Full Review

    Cyborg #21 was a good start to a stronger exploration of Victor's corner of the universe. This was a great time to develop to enemies, ways for Victor to spring into action, and further address his reputation as Cyborg. There really hasn't been much worry at all about the future of this title with the creator back in charge of Cyborg's story. He didn't disappoint when he said he was taking him in an all new and different direction, with a brand-new cast and all-new baddies. Read Full Review

    The new Cyborg is loaded with new characters, new components, new villains with fresh motivations. And lots of action. Read Full Review

    We're left with yet another run that doesn't feel like it's going to kick-start a successful solo run for the character, and it might be time to call it a day on DC trying to make it happen. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Apr 5, 2018

    Cyborg #21 isnt a bad book. Its cohesive, paced well, and has good artwork. However, it never grabs me and feels like a retread of other Vic Stone stories that never grabbed me either. Unfortunately, DC still doesnt seem to know what it wants to do with this great character, even if Christopher Priest is doing some interesting things with the character in Justice League, and Vics bit in Metal was pretty cool. In any case, I can recommend this one if your dying for some solo Vic Stone content, but its not required reading. Read Full Review

    There's some fun to be had here, but things just aren't gelling yet. Hopefully, that changes next issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Brax Apr 5, 2018

    The concept of a disembodied Black man sutured together with alien tech and fragments of his own body is a rich one for any genre. But sometimes, reading a Cyborg comic is like watching a sequence of missed opportunities - unfolding panel-by-panel and page-by-page. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 4, 2018

    This is a convoluted and almost unreadable pile of garbage.  Besides a good effort by the art team, there is no reason at all to pick this up, let alone waste any time reading it.  Marv Wolfman once again proves that some things should be left alone, even by their creators. Read Full Review

    Still not a compelling read, but for once, it feels like Wolfman has given Cyborg a sense of direction as a comic book. The scenario we're thrown into feels like the same but one difference is, it's more focused on Victor. No random Sarahs or Variants running around to distract from Victor Stone Marv may be able to pull this character he created out of the grave but it'll take some time. I didn't expect a 180 in a single issue but honestly, this is DC's last ditch effort. If Wolfman can't catch some traction for this book, no one can...
