Victor Stone is Cyborg, a superhero who's half-machine, all man.

Before Metropolis

Formerly a football star, after a science experiment gone wrong caused him to be in a horrible accident, Victor Stone was saved by his scientist father, who reconstructed his son's lost body parts using cybernetic prosthetics, turning him into a cyborg. After recovering, Stone decided he would use his new robot parts to fight crime and became the creatively-named superhero "Cyborg".

Cyborg soon became a member of the teenage hero group known as the Titans and eventually graduated to becoming a full member of the Justice League.

Year One

 Main article: Injustice: Gods Among Us Vol 1 Cyborg was one of many superheroes who had joined Superman's regime, and is shown to be one of the more dedicated members. When Wonder Woman reveals that Superman's parents have been kidnapped, Victor stands up for him and vows to fight for Superman.

When Superman goes to vacate Arkham Asylum, Cyborg gains access to the security systems in order to open all the prisoners' cells so that the Flash can take them to a secure facility. Batman activates a virus within Victor's system that shocks and arrests movement. Harley Quinn then releases all inmates onto the Justice League and Insurgency. In the ensuing chaos, Nightwing is killed by Robin.

Later, in Kahndaq, Cyborg's arm is ripped off by Black Adam and sent flying back. Victor discovers the radio signal being broadcast by Lex Luthor from Metropolis. He is among those on the stage for Superman's public address to the world and the ensuing battle with countless Parademons from Apokolips.

It is discovered that Hawkgirl was actually the Martian Manhunter in disguise, and that he had been feeding information to Batman and the Insurgency. Superman asks Cyborg to activate the Emergency Broadcast System in order to reveal Batman's identity to the world. In retaliation, Bruce activates "Protocol Icarus", completely disabling the Justice League Watchtower.

Year Two

 Main article: Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year Two Vol 1 Cyborg continued to aid the Regime as the Green Lantern Corps declared war on them. Nine months after the death of Green Arrow, the Corps launched a full-scale attack on the Earth, and the Insurgency launched a simultaneous attack on the ground.

Cyborg traced the signal of Oracle, the Insurgency's lead operator, and almost managed to hack into her location. However, Commissioner Jim Gordon, Oracle's father, managed to perform a suicide mission, taking a teleporter to the Justice League Watchtower and, having taken a super pill, used his super strength to rip the cybernetics off of Cyborg's face, disabling him. Gordon had Cyborg beamed back down to Earth, where he was collected by the Insurgency for capture, before collapsing from his cancer on the Watchtower.

Year Three

 Main article: Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year Three Vol 1 For almost the entirety of the third year of the Regime, Cyborg was held in Insurgency captivity within the Tower of Fate.

Eventually, when the Regime came to rescue the captives, the Insurgents moved Victor and the other captives to their new base in the House of Mystery.

The Insurgency debated holding onto the prisoners, some seeing them as a liability, but the Regime continued to hunt for their team members back. Though Hal Jordan almost successfully rescued Cyborg, the fight was ended when the dimension of Hell began to interfere with the hero's dimension, cutting off Hal's connection to his power ring. The Flash hurriedly brought all the heroes he could inside either the House of Secrets or the House of Mystery for protection, finally freeing Cyborg and returning him to the Regime. [1]

Year Four

 Main article: Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year Four Vol 1 During the fourth year of the Regime, Cyborg was knocked out by Renee Montoya when she challenged Superman to a fight at the Washington Monument. However, Montoya succumbed to overdosing on super pills. Afterwards, the Flash and Cyborg tried to talk to Robin about the incident, the boy having been used as bait by Montoya, but Damian refused their friendship, seeing them both as broken as he was. [2]

Afterwards, Cyborg watched as the Insurgency, having teamed up with the Gods of Olympus and the Amazons of Paradise Island, tricked Wonder Woman into evoking one-on-one combat between herself and Superman. When this combat failed due to interference from Sinestro, Cyborg participated in the war against the Amazons. [3] The gods relented and gave Superman 24 hours to regroup.

Cyborg and the Regime against the gods of Olympus

However, before departing, the gods demanded Wonder Woman join their side on Zeus' orders. Refusing to give up their teammate, the Flash struck back the gods, initiating another conflict. Cyborg remained on the sidelines, focusing on healing Superman's broken arm to get him back in the fight. [4] The fighting escalated to the point that Zeus came down from Olympus and threatened to kill Billy Batson if Superman didn't disband his Regime. Superman complied for the sake of Billy's life and told his team members to go back to their original cities until further notice. [5]

After Themyscira was almost drowned by Poseidon, Cyborg reconvened with members of the Regime in Atlantis to formulate their plan [6] before returning to Themyscira to depose the old gods. Cyborg detected that the United Nations had launched nukes on their location in an effort to end the conflict, but Wonder Woman and Superman successfully negated them in time. [7] Highfather arrived, thanks to a conversation with Batman, and deescalated the conflict with the old gods peacefully.[8]

Later, at the end of the year, Luke McDunnagh, the son of Plastic Man was thrown into the Regime's maximum security prison at the bottom of a trench for protesting against Superman. Plastic Man contacted the Regime to get his son back, but negotiations fell through. O'Brien decided he needed to break his son out of prison instead and used his powers to secretly impersonate the Flash for information about the prison. Cyborg, not knowing any better, accidentally divulged all the schematics of the prison to Plastic Man, thinking he was Barry. By the time Cyborg realized his mistake, Plastic Man had freed all the prisoners. [9]

Year Five

 Main article: Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year Five Vol 1 In the beginning of the fifth year of the Regime, Cyborg had his hands full picking up the pieces of Plastic Man's massive prison break; Cyborg organized the recapturing of criminals all across the world. Cyborg also provided support when Doomsday returned to Earth and ambushed Superman. [10]

Later, Cyborg fought Hawkman when the Thanagarian arrived on Earth to forcibly collect his wife. Hawkman knocked Cyborg out, leading to other heroes needing to get involved. [11]

After that, Cyborg organized the Regime to mobilize on the multiple recruitment centers attacked by the Rogues. Cyborg unfortunately had to break the news to Superman that Lex Luthor had stopped production on super pills due to dwindling resources. [12] As the case developed, Cyborg also tracked the Superman impostor. [13]

Batgirl and the Insurgency target Cyborg for evidence against Superman

Cyborg continued with spearheading the operation to recapture all the prisoners that had broken out of the Regime's prison. He also was put in charge of the "reconditioning" campaign to deliver supervillains to Lex Luthor for brainwashing. [14] In addition to these missions, Cyborg also tracked the growing Joker Clan movement in Gotham City until Superman went there and vaporized them all.

Batman, Batgirl, and Batwoman broke into the Hall of Justice with an EMP and attempted to kidnap Cyborg for information about the massacre of the Joker Clan. Though Superman arrived to capture them, they were saved just in time when Hawkman arrived with a Kryptonite mace. Hawkman was murdered by Superman, but the Insurgency escaped with Cyborg as their prisoner. [15]

Fall of the Regime

 Main article: Injustice: Gods Among Us (Video Game) Regime Cyborg first appears alongside fellow Titan Raven torturing a captured Deathstroke. Cyborg mentions that Deathstroke has been offered "amnesty" by Superman and that he would be wise to take it, also noting that if Cyborg were in charge he would not show the same leniency. Cyborg also reveals that most of the Titans died when Metropolis was nuked, and though Deathstroke was uninvolved, Cyborg is content to punish him anyway due to his being "on the wrong side of the law". The Green Lantern from an alternate Earth steps in and, after beating Raven, demands answers from Cyborg, who refuses to give them to him. Cyborg attacks Green Lantern and is defeated as well.

Regime Cyborg reappears in the alternate Cyborg's chapter, hacking into his neural network to make him freeze. Regular Cyborg is able to turn the tables though and break free. He then defeats Regime Cyborg in a fight. Regime Cyborg is later among the Regime forces fighting in Gotham City and is later shown to be among those imprisoned, following Superman's incarceration.

Brainiac's Attack

After the Regime's fall, Cyborg remains on Stryker's Island as a prisoner. When Braniac attacks Earth seeking Superman, Wonder Woman and Black Adam attack the island's prison to try and break the others out. Cyborg is successfully broken out and attempts to hack into Superman's cell but is stopped and defeated by Blue Beetle and Firestorm.

After their fight, Batman chooses to release Superman himself for the fight against Braniac. Cyborg is then first ordered to release Brother Eye from Braniac's grasp with Catwoman and Harley joining him as he cannot simply open a portal straight to the Batcave. The trio are intercepted by Poison Ivy, who poisons Harley and gets her to fight her allies. After Harley is cured, she is left to guard the Batcave's entrance from Arkham, while Cyborg and Catwoman continue on to the cave. They are attacked by Deadshot and Bane, predicting that Batman wouldn't simply give up his hideout.

After the defeat of the duo, Cyborg's attempt to hack into Brother Eye is caught by Braniac, who is impressed by Stone's enhancements. Braniac then shocks Cyborg and creates the being, Grid, Cyborg's personified program without the limitations of his humanity. Nonetheless, Grid is destroyed, and Cyborg is able to get bring Brother Eye back online, allowing the others to begin fighting the Betas of Braniac.

Their efforts are for naught as Braniac's shield generators prove impregnable, and multiple cities, including Atlantis and Metropolis are added into his collection. While Black Adam and Aquaman attempt to blast a high amount of magical energy against Braniac, Cyborg creates a signal disruptor that breaks Braniac's links from his units, but only if the target is within close proximity. After this, Cyborg leaves to fight the Betas in case Batman and Superman fail in stopping Braniac inside his ship.

Possible Post-Brainiac Epilogue

This section of history takes place in a timeline outside that of normal Injustice canon.
Upon beating "Classic" mode in Injustice: Gods Among Us or "Multiverse" mode in Injustice 2 with any playable fighter, the player would receive a possible alternate ending to the game's story featuring their fighter. These alternate histories should not be seen as relevant to future sequels or comic adaptations.

Cyborg Injustice 2 Epilogue.JPG

"Brainiac thought he had me all figured out. Said my humanity made me weak. But fighting for humanity gave me the strength to body that punk-ass Coluan. And before he dropped, I took a few things - his twelfth-level intellect and his ship's data core. I thought the internet was gigantic. But now? I've got the whole wide universe at my fingertips.

First up, I put back every Earth city Brainiac stole, starting with my home town - the Motor City. Then I keep going. Superman wants to secure one world, but I can reboot tens of thousands! Every last one in Brainiac's collection. Gonna be a long trip. But another benefit of my new twelfth-level intellect is I can reunite with some old friends. Titans together. Booyah."
