    Powerful guest stars come to play in ‘Cyborg’ #5 as the threat of Markus and Solace becomes much clearer. A big character-rich superhero romp gives the title character and his allies the spotlight they deserve.

    This series has been doing some very interesting things with the concepts of transhumanism and AI, as Cyborg finds himself up against a villain who comes from the brain patterns of his father’s rival Markus—all the while Markus is still alive and being hunted by himself. While the new entity Solace makes a powerful villain, it’s also hard to disagree with him—the concept of a being being created as a mental double, but confined to a robot body and forced to serve the “real” person is rather horrifying and just asking for a robot rebellion. And that’s exactly what Markus gets—causing Cyborg to call in backup from the Titans. The Fearsome Five, now with some reinforcements, provide the main threat this issue, but the larger plot involving Markus and Solace are in full swing by the end of the issue—leading to what’s sure to be a tense finale.

    Lyles Movie Files

    Cyborg has made for a solid mini-series with a writer who truly gets the complexities and opportunities of the character. With more consistent art, this would be a viable candidate for an extended run.

    The Titans guest-star alongside Cyborg in this one, and they do a good job playing supporting roles and allowing Cyborg to shine in his own comic book. We get some extra art from Travis Mercer in this one, and I enjoyed his style a lot more than Tom Raney’s. It seemed to fit the characters better. Solace is a good adversary for Cyborg, and hopefully he sticks around when the series finishes up.
