Will Conrad’s art is downright beautiful in this issue and it fits the series well…but can’t we have him on a higher profile book? In this issue, Exxy does a rap about Cyborg and it is very cute. In fact, I love the idea of Cyborg has the hero of Detroit. Semper Jr is doing a good job of building Cyborg’s hero dynasty with a city and a great supporting cast. This was a good issue. I wonder how Cyborg’s six month time jump works in the context of him being in he Justice League. I mean he wasn’t missing for six months on the team?

This was another good issue of this series as Cyborg teams up with Black Narcissus to take down a new villain called Fyrewyre and eventually gets captured by Anomaly. There was a few times in this issue where the characters basically talked to themselves. I don’t see why those could not have been thought balloons. It would have made way more sense.

I am not excited to read this series mainly because I hate that Cyborg has replaced Martian Manhunter’s role in the Justice League. I do not dislike Cyborg, but he belongs with the Titans. So here we dive into the first issue and Cyborg is now apparently the defender of Detroit. Fine that is not the worst change in the world. But I have to say I liked this debut, Semper Jr. managed to catch us up on everything about Cyborg and tell a very human story about a machine-man who is afraid he has lost his soul. I am impressed.

Cyborg fights Kilg%re who explains to him his history and that he is just one of the machines being gathered by a mysterious villain who wants Cyborg to join them. In the end, Kilg%re puts him through a test on whether he is human or machine and it involved saving his father’s life. Semper is a good writer as I already feel I care about the Stone Family on issue 2. I am confused as to why Cyborg is working with T.O. Morrow. Is he good now? I did not see the final page coming at all.
