Cyborg

Easily one of my favorite former Teen Titans, Cyborg seems to embody the motto: "Suck it Up and Get to Work". Victor Stone, was an athlete but he was also a test subject for his parents. I'm sure they wanted the best for him as they sought to increase his intelligence. It was one of his father's other experiments gone wrong that allowed an extra-dimensional creature to cross through a portal and mutilate Victor. In order to save him, his father made him a cyborg using even more experimental technology. Poor Victor woke up to find most of his body gone. He wanted to die but ultimately went through therapy, worked hard and learned to control his new body. People looked at him as if he was some kind of monster which was an additional challenge for him to deal with. He ultimately found friends and companionship in the Teen Titans. His first comic book appearance was in 1980 in DC Comics Presents #26.

I like The Famous Jett Jackson's portrayal on Smallville...

Well, unfortunately, I do not think that Jett Jackson's portrayal was anything but crap-mostly like Smallville is crap. A black Six Million Dollar Man? If I wanted to see that, I'll wait for the possible remake from Universal Pictures starring Will Smith.
