A few weeks ago, Cyborg’s latest self-titled series at DC Comics came to an end with Cyborg #20. But apparently, it was only a temporary respite for the cybernetic superhero. Not only is the series making a return, it’s doing so under the auspices of the legendary Marv Wolfman, who helped create Cyborg alongside George Perez in the ‘80s.


Newsarama has confirmed that the series will get a 21st issue this April, penned by Wolfman—who’s been on a roll revisiting the New Teen Titans team he formed alongside Perez nearly four decades ago, with both the Raven: Daughter of Darkness miniseries’ debut and a guest appearance writing Teen Titans #16 due out this week—with art from Sam Lotfi.

io9 reached out to DC Comics and confirmed further that Cyborg will indeed continue on as an ongoing monthly series, with Wolfman writing, kicking off with a new arc in Cyborg #21. Here’s the solicit detail for the issue:

In the DC Universe, Cyborg is the most technical advanced being on the planet—or so we thought. Introducing Mother Box 2.0: Robo-Dojo! Unlike Cyborg, these robots are piloted by the government’s best, brightest, and most loyal soldiers. Super Heroes just got a major upgrade produced, developed and financed by S.T.A.R. Labs.

It’s a bit weird for DC to resurrect the series’ ongoing numbering after it came to an end rather than start a new title, but there you have it: Cyborg will return for a good while yet, starting with Cyborg #21 on April 4.

This is great and all, but can we also talk about Marvel artist Jon Malin’s tweet in which he compared SJWs to Nazis?

Let’s leave off the fact that the X-Men are literally fighting for social justice and just read the words “SJW Hitler.” Just...just look at those words and try to make sense of them.

(Jon Malin is the artist for Cable, although his run is ending soon. I hope Marvel never hires him again and blacklists his ass.)
