"My name is Nijiro Jin, born of flesh and blood, but now encased in steel. I have become N-Jin, who seeks to discard the final traces of frail humanity to become Mekkan-X, the Man-God who will soon wield the power infinite."
"All that stands in my way is the construct they call Cyborg. It is for that reason alone that he must regretfully die."
Introducing Mekkan-X, born in the waning days of the 19th century, who has targeted for destruction not only the Robo Dojo school of giant robot makers, but Vic Stone as well.

    Overall I thought Cyborg #22 was a decent book, but it seems to be just a fill in issue that explains more about the history of it's villain than anything. Cyborg gets to find out more about Starlite and what their plans seem to be, but I don't think their intentions are all good as they claim to be either. I'm not completely sold on Nijiro being a decent villain however I'll save my complete judgment for the conclusion of the adventure. Read Full Review

    Cyborg #22 was a solid step forward getting to know both sides of this intriguing situation Victor has found himself in. On one hand there is an enemy he has yet to figure out, and on the other hand he has allies who are still not to be fully trusted. Its a tough world for Victor when everywhere he turns there are those who he can't fully rely on to have pure intentions for scientific advancements. Read Full Review

    Cyborg #22, the second issue of Marv Wolfman's puzzling revival of Cyborg's solo title, turns out to be a modest improvement over the first, as it clarifies a bit about who's the antagonist and what they want. It still suffers from most of the same problems that Cyborg titles have since DC decided at the start of the New 52 that he was a solo hero now " namely, very few people, including his creator, have the big ideas to drive a Cyborg solo title.

    I have renewed hope forCyborg, as a character, and as title. I wouldnt be surprised if part of hisinvolvement is an attempt on DCs part to support the franchise as it movecloser to the intended film, scheduled for 2020. Read Full Review

    Overall, this issue just isn't very memorable, and hopefully, next issue can switch things up. Read Full Review

    Marv Wolfman is back writing Cyborg, but I'd rather see DC put some effort into finding ANYONE with a fresh take on the character or just shut him down until they do.  The art in this issue is good, but not much else is.  I suggest passing on this and hopefully, Cyborg fans will get their fill in the Justice League books.

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison May 4, 2018

    Cyborg #22 is another disappointing entry for a character who really is one of my favorite DC characters. I want to see him given a fleshed-out identity, more agency, and interesting villains to face. Hes rarely granted those things, and this issue is no different. I cant recommend it. Give it a pass.
