Victor Stone is the son of Dr. Silas Stone and was born in 2000. In his teenage years, Stone because a star student athelete at Henry Heywood High School in Detroit. He had a 4.0 GPA and was a wide receiver for the football team, the Steelworkers. He wore the number 16. On September 8th, 11:04 EDT, Team Year Eight, Steve Lombard mentioned Stone as a promising up-and-comer for the upcoming season. On October 12th, 07:55 EDT, Stone called up Dr. Stone and reminded him to come to his game that night. He was not enthused about Ron Evers and Sebastian Cardona's locker room antics. Dr. Stone did not attend the game nor left a voicemail. On October 12th, 23:18 EDT, the Steelworkers celebrated their win at Pingree's Ice Cream Shop. Stone was approached by Bash Bashford who was scouting for Metropolis University. On October 15th, 07:16 EDIT, Stone forced his way into S.T.A.R. Labs Detroit to confront Dr. Stone. He berated Dr. Stone for always working.

Stone eventually gave up and stormed out but accidentally caused the Reach device in Dr. Stone's lab to blow up. Stone was buried under rubble horribly ravaged and with mortal wounds. Dr. Stone, against protest, used the Father Box on him. It encased Stone in a pod, collected material in the room, and replaced most of Stone's body with cybernetic prosthetics. Stone's vitals were restored and he regained consciousness. Stone was horrified and infuriated at the sight of his new body parts. He fixated on Dr. Stone but was disrupted by the sudden arrival of Violet Harper. He was temporarily knocked out by a blast that got deflected then was cleansed by Harper. Stone regained control of himself and asked Harper to remove the cybernetics. Dr. Stone informed him he was living because of them and they could work together to figure out what Father Box did. Stone refused to be his lab experiment and accused him of destroying his future. He ultimately went with Harper and boomed to Happy Harbor. He stood in Happy Harbor High School's football field and remarked he had become a freak.

Stone went to Lucas Carr's house with Harper, Megan Morse, and Fred Bugg. He was surprised no one was scared of his appearance. He was turn shocked by Forager. While everyone debated Harper's true origin, Stone stated he just wanted to go back to a normal life. The Super-Cycle became hostile towards him and aimed. Father Box took over again but Harper cleansed him again. Jefferson Pierce suggested going back to Dr. Stone but he strongly refused. Conner Kent took in another stray. With some reluctance, Stone agreed to go with Bugg, Harper, and Brion Markov to Happy Harbor High's Halloween dance. The plans were canceled when Dick Grayson came forth with a new mission. Harper was told to stay with Stone in case he required another cleanse. He became uneasy when Dr. Jace talked to Harper about hormones and feelings. Father Box took over and he stalked Harper through out the house after knocking Wolf and Jace out. Stone tried to fight back and told Harper to run but she figured out how to cleanse him again.

On November 1st, 03:16 EDT, Stone told everyone that Harper permanently cleansed him of Father Box. On November 4th, 10:21 EST, Stone was present at the meeting of Nightwing's covert squad at Mount Justice. Grayson told Stone he had to make a choice about what to do. Stone looked at his phone and saw Aquaman's press conference about the Goode Goggles being linked to meta-trafficking. On November 6th, 20:20 EST, Brion Markov tried to tell him about the Watchtower but Stone was not interested and seemed to be annoyed with Markov and Harper's constant texting. Markov was surprised he knew about it. Stone only said he made an educated guess. On November 22nd, 16:00 EST, Stone brooded in the Bio-RV and was uninterested in Thanksgiving. Forager tried to invite him to dinner but Stone claimed he could not be helped. Forager went into a metaphor about caterpillars and butterflies. Eventually, Stone joined the dinner. On December 4th, 17:48 PST, Stone was among those who moved into the Premiere Building penthouse after the formation of the Outsiders.

Stone mostly kept to himself for the next month. On January 1st, 00:01 PST, Team Year Nine, Stone got a call from Dr. Stone. He just wanted to be left alone and hung up. He suddenly felt extreme pain and went into an alley. On January 2nd, 04:16 PST, Fred Bugg found him but was shocked to see Father Box had spread further across Stone. He got him back to the Premiere. Dr. Jace examined him in the medical bay. Superboy brought in Dreamer from New Genesis to help. It was concluded Metron and his Mobius Chair could help him. Superboy, Forager, and Jefferson Pierce boomed away to find Metron. Stone became stressed over the arrival of Dr. Stone and Father Box spread further. Dr. Stone convinced his son he could help and put him into a medically induced coma in order to stall Father Box. Metron was found but he only came to watch Stone be completely overcome. The others decided to remove Metron and put Stone on the Mobius Chair. Stone was totally cleansed of Father Box's soul and upgraded with Mobius technology.

Stone and Dr. Stone reconciled before the latter left. By January 21st, Stone started to explore his new abilities and discovered he could turn his hand into a cannon like Blue Beetle. M'gann M'orzz helped him reach the acceptance phase. Garfield Logan and Victor Stone tested the latter's strength in the gymnasium. To their amazement, he sent 225 pounds worth of weights through the ceiling. Later that night, both Harper and Stone could sense a Mother Box was in trouble. Stone opened a Boom Tube. Logan and Markov went through first and arrived in Gretchen Goode's house. Stone crushed a laser shooting at the Mother Box. Harper healed the Mother Box then cleansed Dick Grayson and Jefferson Pierce. Stone opened another Boom Tube so everyone could retreat back to the Premiere. On January 22nd, 02:21 PST, Stone joined others for pancakes at a cafe. When they returned, they witnessed Pierce's outburst about the Anti-Light manipulating the various hero teams to battle the Light. Stone ate popcorn with Forager. He was present when Brion and Tara Markov returned with the revelation Dr. Jace betrayed them and gave Harper over to Goode.

On January 25th, 17:16 PST, Stone accompanied the Outsiders to Burbank. He noticed Building 16 had no network connectivity and realized he could project holograms as he explained himself. He then detected an Apokoliptian signature inside and generated a Boom Tube. Stone felt he owed Harper and went with the Outsiders. Stone found and turned a giant hologram off, revealing a large Apokoliptian machine. They were all suddenly boomed into Goode's X-Pit. Stone managed to enter Overlord's cyberspace realm and defeated it using his willpower. He got everyone back to Building 16 then destroyed the machine with Blue Beetle. Suddenly, Goode and Overloard vanished. Stone quickly traced their destination and generated a Boom Tube then went through alone. On January 26th, 02:48 UTC, he found himself in the Orphanage and witnessed Gretchen Goode and Granny Goodness merge into one being. Stone took the Cerebral Leash off Violet Harper then she liberated the Justice League, Team, and Outsiders from the Anti-Life Equation. Stone, Harper, and the League turned to the Ghost Dimension machine and blew it up. Stone opened a Boom Tube back to Earth.

On January 26th, 06:54 PST, Stone downplayed his role and credited Harper but she insisted he was the real hero. Garfield Logan opened the floor to vote on Stone joining the Outsiders. It was unanimous but Conner Kent told Stone it was his choice. Stone accepted and took the codename Cyborg. On February 14th, 18:03 PST, Harper babysat Lian Nguyen-Harper in the Premiere while Stone and Logan watched a news report about a video recording the former provided of Goode and Goodness merging and about Cyborg joining the Outsiders. Some time later, they watched Geo-Force's interview. Metron suddenly boomed Stone, Harper, and Nguyen-Harper to the Mobius Dimension. Stone and Harper were startled to learn they could only speak in pings like Mother and Father Boxes. Metron declared he viewed them as his grand-children and admitted he looked forward to watching their continued development under the assumption Darkseid did not kill them as they were a potential obstacle to his grand plans. Metron promptly returned them to the Premiere.

On February 16th, Cyborg took part in the joint mission to end Baron Bedlam's coup in Markovia. Cyborg was placed on Alpha Squad. He generated a Boom Tube for Alpha to go directly inside the Markovian Royal Palace. Cyborg was hailed by Jefferson Pierce with a new objective. He picked up Terra's discarded comm and traced its signal back to the source, Lexcorp. Pierce scolded Deathstroke and Lex Luthor while Cyborg appropriated files. Cyborg and the others were horrified as Geo-Force executed Baron Bedlam and pronounced himself the new king. Pierce and Cyborg later presented evidence to the United Nations General Assembly that incriminated Luthor of continuing to run Lexcorp despite UN regulations and of his involvement in meta-human trafficking. On February 24th, 19:00 EST, Cyborg attended the meeting on the Watchtower in which Black Lightning ended up elected as the Justice League's new leader. On February 26th, 15:15 EST, Stone gently stopped Ron Evers from bullying Cisco Ramon in the Henry Heywood High locker room.

At some point, Cyborg joined the Justice League and moved out of the Premiere Building. He was assigned the designation "39." On March 23rd, 01:28 EDT, Cyborg was present on the Watchtower to monitor the test of the M'arzz Zeta-Tube. They lost contact as soon as Martian Manhunter stepped out into the Watchtower. Superman suggested a Boom Tube but since Cyborg never went to M'arzz, it was too dangerous. They later re-established contact with Em'ree J'onzz but Lor-Zod destroyed the M'arzz-Earth Communications Satellite and the call was lost before Cyborg could lock onto the coordinates. On March 24th, Superman became alarmed with his son's emerging powers and quickly had Cyborg generate a Boom Tube. On September 9th, 19:08 MDT, Stone attended Dinah Lance's monthly group therapy session in Taos. Violet Harper brought up her new romance and unresolved issues with Brion Markov. Stone suggested she contact him for closure but Lance reminded him to offer his own experience instead of advice. Stone apologized and talked about Dr. Stone. He was happy for Logan and his journey of getting better again.

Cyborg was present at the dedication ceremony on Justice Island for the new Hall of Justice. On September 16th, he attended the wedding of Conner Kent and M'gann M'orzz in Happy Harbor. On November 9th, 21:07 EST, Cyborg was present during a conference call between Artemis Crock, Black Lightning, Wonder Girl, Oracle, and King Brion Markov. Markov shared his concern about Queen Perdita Vladek's kidnapping and Count Vertigo's prison escape but no one from the League, Team, or Outsiders were allowed in Markovian soverign territory. Instead, the Infinitors would rescue her. After the meeting, Cyborg expressed his desire to help rescue Vladek but Lightning reminded him he was a Leaguer now and any photo of him in Markovia could spark an international incident so it was best to leave it to the Team.

On November 11th, 12:06 PST, a conference call was held between Wonder Girl, Beast Boy, Nightwing, Oracle, Robin, and Cyborg to discuss the motive behind Queen Vladek's kidnapping: the Vlatavan National Mining Company in Krastmala discovered something, kept it secret, took the discovery directly to Queen Vladek, and she contacted Green Arrow and Black Canary seeking help with setting up transfer of it to Dr. Serling Roquette in S.T.A.R. Labs in Star City. Cyborg agreed Lex Luthor was the prime suspect. He revealed he detected Boom Tube activity between the Lexcorp Robotics factory in Greater Bialya, a country the Justice League could not legally operate in, and Star City, Markovburg, and Krastmala. Cyborg went to the Hub and opened a Boom Tube directly to the factory for the Outsiders. On November 12th, 12:00 EST, Cyborg was among the small team of Leaguers who informed Lex Luthor that Queen Perdita Vladek was part of their family and was now off-limits to the machinations of the Light and its members.
