The Religious Affiliation of Comic Book Character
Victor Stone
Cyborg
of the Teen Titans

Victor Stone is better known as "Cyborg," a long-time member of Teen Titans.

Cyborg is one of the most famous and most important African-American superheroes in the DC Universe.

Cyborg is a Protestant, although his religiosity is not typically a central aspect of his character. Cyborg is probably one of the more "secular" of the major Teen Titans. He is portrayed as overtly religious less frequently than many of his teamates, including Raven, Starfire, Lilith, Donna Troy ("Wonder Girl") and even Dick Grayson ("Robin" and later "Nightwing").

Perhaps because Victor Stone's parents were both scientists, some readers have mistakenly surmised that Victor Stone or his parents are "atheists." There is no textual support for such a conclusion, however. According to surveys published in scientific publications, such as Scientific American, most American scientists, in fact, claim to believe in God and have a stated religious preference. The overwhelming majority of African-Americans identify themselves as Protestant Christians. So, statistically speaking, Victor Stone's most likely religious background would be Protestant, judging strictly from his background.

Moreover, Victor Stone has expressed religious beliefs in published comics and TV appearances, although we are unaware if he has overtly identified his religious preference or denomination by name.

Cyborg clearly exhibits strong moral values and religious ethics. There appears to be no evidence, however, that Cyborg is a regular churchgoer or somebody who would be considered "actively" religious. He appears to be a person with a general Christian background but may be largely nominal in his affiliation. It is entirely possible that even as a child his parents did not take him to church regularly.

Cyborg demonstrates Protestant Christian beliefs in Smallville episode

Smallville, Season 5, Episode 15: "Cyborg"
Written By: Caroline Dries
Directed By: Glen Winter
Air Date: February 16, 2006

This episode, aptly titled "Cyborg," begins with a scene showing Victor Stone unconscious, hooked up to machines. He is part of some kind of high-tech bionics experiment. The lab, in a building owned by CynTechnics is filled with various bionic parts. An Asian scientist named Dr.Hong sneaks into the lab, wakes Victor, and frees him. We next see Victor running through the building, chased by other technicians and security guards. Victor finally bashes through metal doors and escapes to outside of the building. While running away, Victor was crossing a street when he was hit by Lana Lang. Lana is slightly injured in the accident (which largely destroys the Suburban she was driving), so Victor takes her to a hospital. Victor leaves immediately after dropping Lana off in a hospital room, intent on putting distance between himself and people from the company that had held him captive.

Victor Stone (Cyborg) is first seen in CynTechnics lab

Lana calls Clark, who uses his super speed to rush to the hospital. When Lana asks how he got there so fast, Clark says that he was nearby - at the Daily Planet building visiting their friend Chloe. Clark doesn't want Lana to know that he used super speed to run all the way from Smallville. Lana does not know about Clark's super powers and alien origin.

Lana describes the young man who she hit, and Clark soon finds Victor outside the hospital. Clark and Victor recognize each other, as they played football for rival teams during high school. Clark uses his X-ray vision to look at Victor's interior physiology, and sees that Victor has bionic implants throughout his body. Victor tries to leave but Clark grabs his arm to stop him. Reflexively, Victor uses his enhanced strength to throw Clark against a wall. The tile-covered cement wall is damaged, but Clark is unhurt. Clark and Victor both realize that the other has superhuman strength and invulnerability.

Clark Kent uses X-ray vision to view interior bionics systems of Victor Stone (Cyborg)


[Timecode: 10 minutes, 6 seconds. Scene: In Clark Kent's loft, the upper space of the barn next to his house, a place where spends much of his time. After talking to Lana Lang on his cell phone, Clark Kent walks up the stairs to his loft. Victor Stone (who is also known as "Cyborg" in the comics) is there. Vic Stone sits at a desk, looking at a news article on Clark Kent's laptop computer. The newspaper article is about the death of Victor Stone and his entire family in an automobile accident.]

Clark Kent: Newspapers got it wrong, huh?

Victor Stone (Cyborg): No. They didn't

[Close-up on the newspaper article displayed on the computer screen. The headline reads, "MET HIGH RECEIVER DIES IN CAR CRASH."]

Victor Stone: We were all in the car, laughing, carrying on. Then it started to snow. My little sister always loved the snow. My mom, my pops . . . my little sister . . . I should've died with them. I passed out. Expected to see some angels next time I woke up. Instead, I got a bunch of CynTechnics scientists playing Frankenstein.
Victor Stone (Cyborg) says he should have died in car crash
Victor Stone (Cyborg) says he expected to wake up seeing angels after car crash


Clark Kent: CynTechnics, they did this to you?

Victor Stone: I wasn't the only dead guy they pulled from an accident. Just the first to survive their experiments. If it wasn't for this one doctor that helped me escape, I'd be more machine than man right now.

Clark Kent: Machine? You mean bionics. That's what all the metal is, in your body.

Victor Stone: How do you know what's in me? What about that wall I tossed you into? How come you're not even hurt?

Clark Kent: You're not the only one who drinks a lot of milk.

Victor Stone: So . . . You're bionic, like me?

Clark Kent: No. I'm just different.

Victor Stone: What about your girlfriend, Lana? She's okay with you being . . . whatever you are?

Clark Kent: Lana doesn't know.

Victor Stone: Neither will Katherine.

Clark Kent: Who's Katherine?

Victor Stone: She's my girl.

[Victor shows Clark a photo of Katherine, which he had in his pocket..]

Clark Kent: She's beautiful.

Victor Stone: We were planning on getting married after school. Some wedding that would be now.

Clark Kent: Does she even know you're alive?

Victor Stone: No. I don't want to see her. If she knew what I am now . . . What they did to me . . . How could she ever love a thing like me?

Clark Kent: I'm really not the best person to be asking about that.

Victor Stone: Won't even matter if CynTechnics catches up with me first.

Clark Kent: I've got a friend who works at the Daily Planet. She might be able to help me find out more about these guys. Maybe get 'em off your back.

Victor Stone: You'd do that for me?

Clark Kent: I've kinda got this thing about being experimented on in labs. Sit tight. You should be safe here. Be back as soon as I can.

[Victor Stone smiles. Clark Kent leaves. End of scene. Timecode: 13 minutes, 51 seconds.]

[Two people working for CynTechnics track Victor to Clark Kent's barn. While Lana Lang is visiting with Victor so that she can suggest he be honest with his girlfriend about his condition, an armed man in combat hear uses a laser scope to target Victor's shoulder and shoot him. This shot takes Victor down. Apparently he has a vulnerability in the exact spot where the CynTechnics employee shot him. Clark Kent arrives on the scene and knocks the CynTechnics employees out. Victor explains to Lana and Clark that his power cell has been ruptured and he is leaking some kind of vital fluid. His bionics and biology are tied together, Victor explains, and if he can't stop the leak, he'll die.

Clark enlists the help of Chloe to help them find Dr. Hong, the scientist who helped Victor escape. But when Clark goes to Dr. Hong's house, Dr. Hong is already dead, having been killed by automobile fumes in a staged suicide. Clark calls Lana, who is staying with Victor in her apartment, to tell her the bad news.]

[Timecode: 22 minutes, 6 seconds. Scene: The Talon, the coffee shop which has an upstairs apartment which is where Lana Lang lives. Victor is in her apartment, trying to hold a cloth to his leaking shoulder. Dark fluid has leaked out and is all over Lana's couch. Other cloths are scattered around Victor, each stained with the dark fluid. Victor looks like he is in severe pain and distress.]


Victor Stone: What happened? Did Clark find him?

Lana Lang: [Snaps her cell phone shut.] I'm so sorry, Victor. Dr. Hong's dead.

[A very sad look comes to Victor's face. Tears come to his eyes. He feels terrible guilt over his unintentional role in the death of a good man.]

Victor Stone: Because of me. If he hadn't-- If he hadn't helped me escape, he'd still be alive right now.

Lana Lang: It's not your fault, Victor. You didn't choose for any of this to happen to you.

Victor Stone: I always said I should've died with my family. Guess I'll be joining them soon enough.
Victor Stone (Cyborg) tells Lana Lang he will soon be in Heaven with his deceased family members


Lana Lang: You can't say that. You can't give up hope, okay?

Victor Stone: I need to see Katherine.

[Victor Stone stands up to leave. He stumbles against a counter, unsteady.]

Lana Lang: Victor, they're still searching for you. You can hardly walk.

Victor Stone: I don't care. I'm gonna see her before I die.

Lana Lang: Okay, let's just wait for Clark.

Victor Stone: I'm not waiting for anybody. If you had one last chance to see the person you love, what would you do?

[Victor Stone opens the door and leaves Lana's apartment. End of scene.]

[New scene. Cut to interior of Katherine's home. In a hutch in the living room we see a framed photo of Victor Stone wearing his football jersey, #82. Another framed photo shows Victor and Katherine sharing a happy moment at Christmas time, with a bit of a Christmas tree seen in the background and Katherine wearing a Santa Claus hat. Victor has his arms around Katherine in the photo. Victor opens the front door of this home and stumbles in, knocking over a small table by the door.]

Victor Stone: Katherine! Katherine! Katherine!

[Victor looks across the room and sees Dr. Alistair Kreig sitting at a desk. This is the chief scientist over the project that turned Victor into a cyborg against his will.]

Dr. Kreig: Hello, Victor.

Victor Stone: Where's Katherine?

Dr. Kreig: She's save. And she'll stay that way as long as you cooporate.

Victor Stone: If you so much as touch her, I swear to God . . .

Dr. Kreig: I'm a doctor, Victor. My goal is to help people, not to hurt them.

Victor Stone: Don't play with me, Doctor. I want to see her.

Dr. Kreig: You will. But first you'll return to the lab . . . with these gentlemen.

Victor Stone: Hope you win your Nobel Prize.

[Two CynTechnics employees take Victor away. Later Victor is strapped down to a high-tech chair in the same lab that we first saw him in, the lab at CynTechnics. Timecode: 26 minutes, 11 seconds. Two people in sterile gowns like doctors wear while performing surgery enter the room and walk up to Victor, who is unconscious due to anesthesia administered through an apparatus over his mouth. One doctor removes the mask from Victor's mouth. Victor's eyes open.]

Victor Stone: Where's Katherine?

Dr. Kreig: Back at home. But don't worry. We've called off the dogs. You'll be happy to know that we've replaced the tubing. We calibrated some of the servo-mechanisms. Your arm is even better than before.

Victor Stone: Can't wait to use it to smash your skull in.

[Dr. Kreig smiles and says nothing in response to Victor's threat. He steps away, revealing a man standing behind him: Lex Luthor. (Luthorcorp owns CynTechnics. In the previous scene, it was Lex Luthor who helped Dr. Kreig re-capture Victor.]

Lex Luthor: How're you feeling?

[Victor looks at Lex Luthor coldly, but syas nothing.]

Lex Luthor: Victor, I'm glad we managed to get to you in time to save you.

Victor Stone: You got some kind of God complex, or something? I didn't ask to be saved!
Victor Stone (Cyborg) asks Lex Luthor if he has a God complex


Lex Luthor: Look, all I'm doing is giving you a future. A chance for a normal life.

Victor Stone: Normal? Half my body is straight out of the Sharper Image catalog.

Lex Luthor: At a price a lot steeper than six million dollars. Last thing I want to do is cause you more pain.

Victor Stone: Then why not just take back all your fancy gadgetry? You can roll my sorry stump out of here in a wheelbarrow, for all I care.

Lex Luthor: You'd die without this gadgetry. But I'm as eager for your freedom as you are. You just need to be patient.

What religions do you think the Titans are?

Here's mine:
Robin: shinto or some other Japanese discipline based one
Starfire: whatever Tamaranians believe in
Beast Boy: pagan
Raven: possibly pagan, maybe a darker form
Cyborg: atheist
Terra: ??? Help with that one.

What do you think?

Oh mein gaut. Are you serious, or was it a joke?

Here's my take:
robin sez: "Christian."
cyborg sez: "Catholic"
raven sez: "There is no god"
star [Starfire] sez: "Glorp!"
terra sez: "Muslim."
bb [Beast Boy] sez: "What's religion?"

As you can probably tell, I'm just screwing around.

Ah ha! I've got some:

Robin: Unorthodox Ashism, the religion that involves working at a supermarket and spouting one-liners ad nauseum (Robin is unorthodox because all of his are lame)

Starfire: Some freaky-deaky Tamaranian religion that involves dancing around naked with a chicken

Cyborg: Alvis-time, the holiday of drinking and vengeance

Beastboy: Doesn't know, but can't even spell religion.

Raven: Whatever it is that half-demons must worship while wearing a spandex leotard, and having a shard of glass forcibly shoved into your forehead upon birth.

Robin I'd say Christian or agnostic.

Cyborg, despite it being slightly stereotypical, many black families are deeply religious. Catholic is right here too.

Raven doesn't have the same Gods so I'd say Pagan/Atheist.

BB [Beast Boy] is an atheist.

Starfire would either have a Tamaranian God/dess or agnostic.

Clearly out of all of them, I wouldn't expect anyone to say that Cyborg was the atheist. He should clearly be the Baptist (hopefully before he got his armor) Wear rubber gloves, preacher.

As for Terra: what the Russians believe in. (My theory still)

Robin: Jewish
Beast Boy: Jewish
Raven: Azarathian... or a Buddha lover.
Starfire: A space version of people who respect mother nature.
Cyborg: Jewish... or atheist
Terra: Muslim... or catholic.
Dr. Light: Total whatever Arabics believe in...

Mad Mod worships Monty Python. And the Beatles. There's enough evidence in the chase scenes alone and crashing feet to prove that.

So far as the other Titans go, considering that Robin grew up around Batman, who doesn't believe in God, and also considering that Robin thinks a lot, he's probably agnostic. I can see Cyborg being of some Christian sect. He's a little too perky to a Jehovah's Witness or Southern Baptist and eats too much to be Mormon (no offense to any Mormons or Jehovah's Witnesses out there...), I'd say he's just good old Baptist or Catholic or something. Raven is probably something along the lines of a Azarathian equivalent of Wicca (and real Wicca....not just someone who walks around saying they are so because it's cool and trendy these days.), Beast Boy being an earth-y boy might be Buddhist (He's vegetarian too so that fits as well...), and Starfire is something weird and weirder. I'm out of ideas. Those last few were kinda half-efforted heh.

Actually, I don't think the Titans have any time to even bother with a religion, with the exception of Raven since her powers seem to be based upon whatever it is she practices, but it's a fun thought...

...my religion pics (don't worry, they're real)

Robin: WASP (White Anglo-Saxxon Protestant)
Raven: WICCA (all that pagan stuff)
Cyborg: Black Muslim (Boo-yah, muhulla hulla allaaaa... eya!)
Beast Boy: Jewish (Because he's an annoying comedian, like Woody Allen)
Starfire: Religious Scientist (because they're into that huggy lovey "lets be friends" crap)
Terra: Doesn't have time for religion because she's always on the move, but I'd say she was baptized under the Markovian Orthodox church.

Okay, this is stupid, but... (and, cough/uncough, Robin isn't Japanese...)

Robin = something Christian MAYBE... Most likely agnostic or whatever that one person said.

Starfire = Tamaranian religion. You notice all the holidays and festivals she celebrates?

BB [Beast Boy] = VEGANISM! Shocked (except for pie. he loves pie. especially the greatest pie in the history of pie. Razz ) Maybe Buddhism.

Raven = "What is 'god'? I only know of demons and creepy evil things." (jk [just kidding]) Maybe the Azarathian religion.

Cy [Cyborg] = Uh... idk [I don't know]. maybe none.
Terra= some religion where they worship "mother Earth" Razz Maybe Taoism.
Jinx= Pagan. She's a witch.
Mammoth= Animal Worship (lol)
Ginx= "Church? Ha! I haven't been in one of those in six years! I only worship the almighty Glowing Box. And the god of computers."
Brother Blood= "I VANT TO DRINK YOUR BLOOOOD!!"
Slade= Sadism. (Maybe also sadomasochism...ew. Shocked)
Hive Head Mistress= Britishism. Razz
Bumble Bee= Feminism. Shocked
Aqualad= Atlantean religion. Probably has something to do with the sea or animals or something..
Blackfire= "Reli...gion? Oh yeah! I think they had that at this one big place with pointy towers that I stole stuff from!"
Red X (new)= "Looking out for number 1." (maybe slight narcissism?)
Mad Mod= Britishism, with slight "hatred towards goody-goodys and teenagers"-ism.

Terra - Doesn't know religion no influence

BB [Beast Boy] - Christian (He seems to know the story of Jonah and the Whale LOL)
Cyborg - Dunno
Starfire - Tamaranian
Rae [Raven] - Demons???

Robin: Doesn't have a religion
BB [Beast Boy]: Doesn't have a religion
Cyborg: Maybe some sort of Christianity
Starfire: Vegan (have no idea what that is but I think I remember reading it somewhere)
Raven: Pagan

Yeah, Ok, I know, this sounds boring, but to me it only makes sense. Well except for the fact that I think I believe that Cyborg doesn't have a religion either, But I think Starfire has one, and by the way it looks I think Raven has one too, anyway, this pretty much sums up my ideas.

-Robin: I'd say Lutheran.
-Starfire: In the comics, she always says "Thank Xhal". So, I'd say she is Xhalian. XD
-Raven: I'd say she's part of the blood clan. Considering, they worshiped her father, and brought her back from the dead, bald. If she isn't, she's probably Pagan.
-Cyborg: It's obvious he's Catholic. :3
-Beast Boy: Probably Jewish, or atheist. He just looks like he'd look good in a yalmulka.
-Terra: She's probably Baptist.
-Slade: Muslim! XD
-Brother Blood: He's part of the blood clan, but if he wasn't, then he's probably be Jewish.
-Mumbo: Um... Agnostic?
-Mad Mod: I'm guessing Catholic?
-Dr. Light: Amish! XD
-Gizmo: Buddhist? Maybe?
-Jinx: She looks Christian...
-Mammoth: Yeah, I'd say he's Amish.
-Bumblebee: She's probably that African one that I don't know the name of. You know, the one that celebrates Quwanzuh[sp?]?
-Aqualad: Jewish.
-Speedy: Christian probably.
-Hotspot: Atheist.
-Mas y Menos: Catholic?
-Wildebeest: AMISH! Very Happy

Starfire: whatever is on her homeplanet.
BB [Beast Boy]: hmm... Christian of some sorts? I really dont know.
Cyborg: I dont know. he is pretty hardy.

Raven: this one is odd. alot think Atheist, but she knows of the supernatural and she knows of demons. and she hates the demons. so I'd think she would be clouded from the truth reguardless of what it is. somehow I doubt that Trigon wants her to know what can banish him. Christian belief is that you cant be possesed if your a believer. so I doubt that she is a Christian. though I cant see her being involved in anything dark either. and magic dosnt = Christian. so I'll say Agnostic. she does seem very confused abou this sorta issue.

Robin = Christian.
Star [Starfire]= Orthodox Tamaranian religion.
BB [Beast Boy]= Buddhism
Raven= Probably nothing. Definitely not an Earth religion.
Cy [Cyborg]= Christian
Terra= Atheist or agnostic (not like she had time to go to church if she was homeless and on the run)
Jinx= Jewish (because she's cool)
Aqualad= Atlantean religion. Possibly a very old Pagan religion that died out shortly after Atlanti sank into the ground.
Blackfire= Same as Starfire, but only if it doesn't interfere with her fun.

Robin: He seems like one of those people whp put out a good guy personality to hide the fact that they are a Mason or a member of the Illuminati. I think he's Masonic.

Beast Boy: He looks like he'd wear a yamulka (spelling?). He seems Jewish to me.

Raven: Wants to pass as a witch, but in reality she's a Catholic, but since she went to a Catholic school she doesn't want to be one. Very Happy

Starfire: I'm not touching that one...
Cyborg: I'd say a Christian because a lot of Africans in the urban areas tend to be that.
Bumblebee: Same as Cy [Cyborg].
Brother Blood: Satanic cult, most definitely.
Slade: Some assassin's belief system that could have some connection to Bushido.
Speedy: Probably goes to wherever Robin goes.
Johnny Rancid: Same as Brother Blood.
Aqualad: Some Atlantian religion.
Jinx: Most likely Wiccan, although in the comic she was an Indian Sorceress, so probably a middle East religion.
Gizmo: Scientology duh...
Mammoth: Most likely Muslim.

Cinderblock, Overload, and Plasmus: I think they may be stupid enough to think that Alex Trebeck from Jeopardy is some sort of Messiah that they worship the show like some ceremony.

Dr. Light: Arabic religion maybe.

Hmm... I think--
Robin: Agnostic
Starfire: The religion on Tameran, however, going with Earth religions I would say Christian
Cyborg: Christian, maybe Catholic, but leaning toward Christian [i.e., "leaning to being Protestant]

Beastboy: Jewish, he converted solely for the jokes, insulting many comedians. (heh, brownie points to whoever gets the reference Very Happy) However, I can see him celebrating Christmas too...

Raven: Eh, I dunno...

What's wrong with Wicca? Suits me just fine.

Robin: Agnostic
Cyborg: Protestant (not sure which one) Christian
Beast Boy: Probably Christian maybe Catholic
Starfire: Whatever religion exists on Tameran

Raven: We've had the most hints as to what religion she may be. Right now, no religion, but definitely interested in Wicca. In "Prophecy" I'm told she creates a circle, also using four white candles with it, which would definitely be Wicca. She uses white candles for meditation in "Episode *insert random numbers here*" which is another sign. And she believes in the things that go along with the religion. And meditation is also a part of Wicca in order to help you control your energies. However, the chakra are of yoga philosophy.

Robin: Agnostic
Starfire: Tamaranian based religion.
Cyborg: Probably some denomination of Christianity

Beast Boy: Agnostic but possibly a bit Christian as well - I don't think he's disciplined enough to follow with the daily prayers of Hinduism or Buddism. I don't know about Buddism but if memory serves Hindus must pray to their God of choice every morning at least.

Raven: Well, I don't know if she has so much a religion than a 'way of life'. Perhaps this is just the culture of Azarath?

Starfire - Those crazy Tamaranians worship X'hal, so....yeah. I guess that could be considered Pagan on Earth.
Raven - Wicca or some old Pagan religion with some eastern religion in the mix.
Terra - Agnostic

Beast Boy - Hmm, a toughie. Maybe Agnostic with a hint of Buddism and Christian thrown in? Or maybe some New Age as well. That's it, he follows BEAST BOY-ISM!

- Starfire: Some wierd Tamarainian religion that requires her to marry a large green blob at the tender age of 16.
- Raven: I see her as... an atheist. Or a Budhist because of all the meditation she does.
- Cyborg: Catholic.
- Beast Boy: Jewish.
- Terra: See seems like she's Wiccan to me...
- Slade: I just don't think he's religious; at all.
- Brother Blood: He's probably part of a cult. Check out the robes, man!
- Gizmo: Either a Scientologist, an atheist, or a Buddhist. I think it'd be so funny to see him meditate! Ommmm... Ommmm... Ommmm...
- Jinx: Wiccan.
- Mammoth: Jewish.
- Mas y Menos: Catholic. No question about it.

It can be easy in some ways to know which religions Robin, Cyborg and Beastboy may believe in, but as for Starfire and Raven, they are alot harder. I guess the prehaps follow the Gods of their own homeworlds.

Cyborg: Christian, or Ethiopian Jew...
Beast Boy: Not the foggiest idea. I'd say Agnostic.
Starfire: Whatever religion there is on Tamaran. We know that all of the people there worship X'Hal, though.
Raven: Occult, or whatever is on Azarath. They seem very spiritual and worship Azar, if I remember.
Terra: Whatever they go for on Markovia. But, I will say that Terra believes in Sladeism Wink

Raven: Also atheist. I doubt after everything she's been through or the way she was raised would give her any options to begin with. If she does practice some form of spiritual guidance or code, it would probably be what she was taught in Azarath.

Beast Boy: Seems like another atheist to me.
Starfire: Whatever the Tamaranian religion is, I think she's referred to some sort of deity during the show, something about 'Soandso the all seeing'.
Terra: Agnostic, maybe? She doesn't seem like the type of person who can really stick with something, especially after betraying the Titans.
Jinx: The religion from her Eastern Indian temple. I have no idea what it is.
Gizmo: He probably doesn't care about religion at all.
Mammoth: Atheist. He was picked on as a child, and he's a villain.

Brother Blood: Well, his ancestor Brother Sebastian was a Christian who obtained the 'prayer shawl of Christ' which slows down the aging process and whatnot. After generations of leading a radical cult, the Christian faith was probably forgotten the day Brother Sebastian started the whole thing. Thus, the present Brother Blood is probably an atheist.

Slade: Religion . . . ha.

Where is it written that one cannot be both religious and a scientist? I'm a tad offended by that but I'll get over it.
