The title or other information in this article is taken from the Super Powers franchise that spun off from the Super Friends franchise, beginning with the Super Powers Collection, and continuing in a variety of books, comics, toys and games, particularly the DC Heroes RPG.
Some of the material here may be conjectural or not even canon at all, although the last two seasons of the Super Friends series that were labeled Super Powers (Season 9 and 10), are both considered canon. Likewise the Super Powers comics are also canon, with the possible exception of volume three.

Cyclotron was an android built by Superman. He was then programmed with all the powers and weaknesses of every superhero and supervillain in order to be the Justice League's tactician. Interestingly, Cyclotron was capable of little independent thought.

  • Coming soon!


Notes

  • There have been two different Cyclotrons since the character's premiere:
  • In his first incarnation, he was created as Terry Curtis by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, as an obscure one-shot Superman character. He first appeared in Action Comics, Vol. 1 #21 (February, 1940)[1] where he was a scientist.
  • In his second incarnation, Roy Thomas reinvented Terry Curtis as Cyclotron, a reluctant supervillain, in All-Star Squadron, Vol. 1 #21 (May, 1983)[2] from DC Comics. He was one of the few original villains retroactively added to DC's Golden Age era in the series.
  • Aside from being a superhero, it would appear that the Super Powers version is loosely on the original incarnation.
