What Cyborg Fears Most In Justice League

Written by 

For decades, Cyborg was primarily famous for being a Teen Titan, but starting with the New 52 reboot in 2011, he's now known as one of the Justice League's founders. The Justice League movie will keep Ray Fisher's iteration of the hero as one of the team's main members.

But despite having amazing, cybernetic abilities, Cyborg isn't invincible, and one thing will be particularly frightening for him in Justice League is not being able to hide who he is from the public like his teammates can do. As Joe Morton, who plays Victor Stone's father, Silas Stone, explained:

Unlike the other members of the Justice League, Victor has no alias, he has no way of hiding behind another personality or some sort of mask in order to protect themselves. He is very much like Frankenstein [Frankenstein's Creature] again in that there's no disguising who he is. So that what I think ends up happening is that section of the movie and certainly that character, Cyborg, is a metaphor for being The Other.

Joe Morton has a point. The other Justice Leaguers have civilian identities to go back to, but Victor Stone has to be Cyborg 24/7, unable to hide his robotic body unless he lurks in the shadows and covers himself in heavy clothing (Raphael's trench-coat and hat disguise from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comes to mind).
