"Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" - 'Cyborg'

Take another look @ the origins of DC Comics' superhero 'Cyborg', aka 'Victor Stone' played by actor Ray Fisher in director Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel" sequel, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", two upcoming "Justice League" features and a standalone "Cyborg" film:

'Cyborg' was created by writer Marv Wolfman and illustrator George PĂ©rez, debuting as a 'special insert' in "DC Comics Presents" #26 (October 1980). In 2011, Cyborg was established as a founding member of the "Justice League".

In the comic book origin story, Victor is the son of scientists 'Silas' and 'Elinore Stone', who use the young man as a test subject for 'intelligence enhancement' projects.

As the treatments begin to take effect, Victor's IQ grows to genius-levels, but he resents further treatment, striking up a friendship with 'Ron Evers', a young rebel who leads him into trouble with the law.

When Victor visits his parents @ 'S.T.A.R. Labs', an experiment in dimensional travel goes awry when a gelatinous monster crosses through a portal, killing his mother Elinore. The creature then turns on Victor and severely mutilates him before Silas forces the creature back to its dimension.

To save his son, Silas outfits him with experimental prosthetics.
But Victor is horrified seeing much of his body and part of his face replaced with metallic implants. 

Mechanical parts grant Victor superhuman strength, speed, stamina, and flight, with an internal computer system able to interface with external CPUs. 

His other features include an electronic 'eye' which replicates vision at a superhuman level, built-in tools and weapons, including a grappling hook/line and finger-mounted laser. Perhaps his most frequently-used weapon is a 'sonic cannon' employed at various settings to either stun or shatter.
