@moywar700: And I would disagree with that. I thought the character has a lot more to offer than simply being the token black guy on the team. As it's been said, he's the weatherman. He's a strategic control centre for the team, and he's an interesting commentary on heroism vs. humanity. How much can an effective hero be human? How much of that flesh can he retain and still get the job done? He's got a huge challenge ahead of him in matching up with heroes who are Aliens and Amazons and Intergalactic Police. He's a dude with a lot of metal grafted into him; so, where does that leave him?
And as for being DC's most successful black character, I would take into account John Stewart before you go making assumptions. John's been through a lot with the Corps in the past 40 years, and deserves a little credit for it.
You reminded me of how boring Cyborg in TAS Teen Titans.Whenever he was a central character,most of the time,his theme was that he's more man than machine.
How can anybody support this?Cyborg was never a Teen Titans member,that **** up his characterization.Not only this,he does absolutely nothing.What I mean is he doesn't have a life and stay inside the watchtower.Everybody in the JL has a life outside of crime fighting but not Cyborg.
Let's face it,the only reason why he's in there it's because he's black.He's the most successful black character in DC but he got screwed over by losing his Teen Titan history.
I've gotta go with the sword. Throwing knives just are not practical in a combat situation. Considering the small starting distance the knife guy has 1 throw, if he's really quick, before the swordsman cuts him down.
