Cyborg is the strong man of the Teen Titans. He is a technological genius and his body has many fuctions as a robotic man.
Although the show does not explain Cyborg's origin, it is for the most part similar to his origin in the comic book. Cyborg's real name is Victor Stone and is the son of prominent scientists Silas and Elinore Stone who ran experiments on him to raise his intelligence. Growing tired of this, Victor began to participate in gang fights and got in with the wrong crowds on the streets. Visiting his parents one day though, a freak accident occurs where an interdimensional being emerges through a portal and tears apart Victor. After forcing the being back into the portal, his parents use their technology to save their son by fitting him with a cybernetic body that would keep him alive. It was after this that he left home and made his way to Jump City where he would meet up with future members of Teen Titans: Robin, Starfire, Raven, and Beast Boy.
In the series, Cyborg appears to be more easy going than his comic book counterpart. Although serious and a strong fighter in battle, when relaxing, Cyborg tends to act the fool and more jovial at the Titan's Tower. He spends free time doing many things with the rest of the Titans but spends most of his time working on his car that he built with his own hands or other gadgets that he creates for battles.
Cyborg made his first appearence in DC Comics Presents #26 and was created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez. The version of Cyborg in the television series was created by Glen Murakami and David Slack.
In the beginning of the series, Cyborg comes off as a proud individual who prefers not to show signs of weakness or being wrong. This is seen in the first episode arguing with Robin over who was at fault for letting a villian get away. It took him a while before admitting that he was in the wrong and came back to work for the Titans. As time went on, Cyborg displayed his knowledge for technology and strategies when fighting on the battle field. One of his biggest issues came up when training as he explained that since he is part machine, his body has upper limits since his functions can only allow him to use 100% of his energy and no more. Cyborg expresses frustration over this but soon realizes that since he is also part human that he should not allow a data read out to hold him back from pushing his limits.
Another change in Cyborg came when he was asked to oversee the development of Titans East, a branch of the Teen Titans that was in works in Steel City. After assisting the group with a few villians, he expressed an interest of being the team leader. He showed potential for being a leader of a group but felt that he would be better suited in Jump City and left the management of Titans East to Bumble Bee.
Since each season ot the television series is mixed in with filler amongst the key elements of the overlying plot, unrelated filler episodes will be skipped over in this article to focus on the important events of each season that Cyborg was involved in.
