DC Comics Rebirth Spoilers & Review: Cyborg #14 Teases Fan Fave Returns & The End Of The World With Dark Nights Of Metal?

DC Comics Rebirth Spoilers and Review for Cyborg #14 follows.

It has been a while since I read DC Comics Rebirth’s Cyborg series. I read the first few months of the series. I was engaged by the opening arcs, but decided that the book did not hold any long-term interest for me. The book then moved from twice monthly to monthly, but I figured since I only had 4 books on my pull list this week that I’d Cyborg #14 into the mix to see what I’d been missing.

Cyborg #14 ends with Cyborg with a female Cyborg (Anomaly) and a kid Cyborg (Variant) being subdued by…

…Cyborg’s mom from an alternate reality?! Cyborg’s dad, a cyborg himself now, who has been the book’s villain. I’m having difficulty following his journey by only picking up this issue, but it seems that he is this Earth’s Silas Stone.

We learn from alternate reality Cyborg’s mom what their Silas Stone did to start an unintended all-out end-of-the-world war of cybernetic creatures that decimated humanity caused by a virus; dark nights of metal (not the upcoming event per se) is ahead for DC Comics Rebirth if this Earth’s Silas Stone’s ambitions are not stymied.

There is a cure for that virus though to prevent this Earth from sharing the alternate Earth’s fate, but that path goes through…

…the Metal Men.

Will this series become a rumored Cyborg and the Metal Men series…

…a la Deathstroke and his Dark Teen Titans aka Defiance? Deathstroke #21 is out this week too.

So…

A fun, but convoluted story with solid art. 6.5 out of 10.
