|“||Cyborgs life has not been easy. This medical journal tells his story. He was once Victor Stone, a promising decathlon athlete until; a terrible accident damaged most of his body. Fortunately, Vic's father was a cybernetics genius. He saved his son's life by replacing Vic's injuries with robotic components. Since then, Vics been known as Cyborg!||”|
— Professor Martin Stein to Ronald Raymond
Unfortunately, he despised his new cybernetic appearance and aside from a brief stay with the Teen Titans in 1983, he mostly kept out of the public eye, and soon began working at a special school for disabled children.
Superman had asked him on a number of occasions, to join the Super Powers Team. On one occasion, after capturing Lex Luthor, Superman stated that anyone who could single handedly capture Luthor would be a very welcome addition to the team. Still Cyborg had no desire to join and remained insistent that he wanted to fly solo.
Eventually though, Cyborg started to develop a real friendship with Firestorm, and finally, after helping the team stop Darkseid's plot to take over Earth, and being formally asked by Batman, Cyborg finally decides that he was meant to join the team all along.
Even though Cyborg hated Apokolips, he went back multiple times to help the team fight Darkseid and his forces.
His ability to interface with a computer has been very helpful to the team on a number of occasions.
Victor Stone is the son of Silas and Elinore Stone, a pair of scientists who work at S.T.A.R. Labs. One day while visiting his parents at the lab, an experiment in dimensional travel went horribly awry when a massive gelatinous monster crossed over an experimental portal and killed Elinore. The creature then turned on Victor and severely mutilated him before Silas managed to force the creature back through the portal. Not long after the attack, Silas was able to outfit his son with experimental prosthetic's of his own design. However, the equipment could not be worn inconspicuously, and thus Victor was horrified to see much of his body, including part of his face, replaced with sheer metallic limbs and implants.
