Victor Stone is a main character who first appeared in RWBY/Justice League.
He is based on his DC Comics counterpart Cyborg.
He is a young man with black shaved hair and brown eyes. He wears no shirt, one black arm band with a few cyan cross designs on his right arm, black bagged pants and boots. He has several prosthesis on left side of his head with red metallic left eye, left arm and right leg.
He seems to be wise, good with tech, and a smart guy. Victor has a deep grudge towards the Schnee Family. After Weiss saves his life with her Glyphs, Victor becomes kinder and respects Weiss. This changes his view of the Schnee Family.
Powers and Abilities
Before he became a cyborg, Victor was an intelligent individual who claimed he had been Atlas's best person. Being the strongest, fastest, fittest, and smartest person around, Victor was chosen to be the first person to go into space. After his accident, Victor replaced parts of his body with advanced prosthetics.
Victor is advanced enough as he made his own cyborg body by himself. With Weiss admitting that he could save many with his intelligence.
When fighting Diana Prince, Victor claimed his Semblance is "Technology" before channeling an electric current from his bionic arm to attack her, implying his Semblance gives him control over technology or electricity and was used to construct his cybernetic body parts.
He is able to render an entire fleet of Atlesian Airships with this power.
After the accident that destroyed most of his body, Victor had to replace parts of himself while adding unique weapons to them. He became much stronger and faster, capable of electrifying people, controlling drones, shooting lasers, and flying.
While Victor's body was very advanced, the power source had been a problem. Using Dust Batteries helped him, but he admitted they burned too quickly and would leave him weak. He also revealed he needed this technology to live otherwise he'd die without it. The power problem was solved by Weiss who managed to give him a Glyph from her Semblance as an engine, thus allowing him to move without problem.
Victor was once an astronaut who was part of a secret program in Atlas in an attempt to explore beyond Remnant and into space. Stating he was physically the best to go, and used a special ship to go past Remnant's atmosphere, only to learn that Dust didn't work in space. The ship exploded with Victor admitting to not actually knowing how he survived, just recalling a green blur. Those involved were ashamed of the failure and denied involvement. Later on, Victor would fend off what he believed were two assassins that were after him and escaped them, where he then went to the Schnee Dust Company to gather experimental tech to repair himself.
During the process, Victor would meet Diana Prince and Weiss Schnee as he nearly finished. While he talked to them amicably at first, with the two believing he had been one of the kidnapped, he learned Weiss's family name. Victor became hostile, believing her and Diana to be another group of assassins sent by Jacques Schnee to silence him. After briefly fighting him, Weiss convinced him to reveal his past and later went to aid him as the Dust Batteries he used to keep himself alive were burning out to quickly. Weiss instead replacing them with a Glyphs to sustain him, making Victor realize they weren't after him.
The three would then start getting along with Victor believing maybe he and Diana could learn from each other with Weiss suggesting his technology could save many. As they then began leaving, Weiss began telling him of the kidnappers who've been grabbing individuals all across the Academies, unaware of many of the mind-controlled students being near them.
The group would reconvene with Team RWBY and the rest of the Justice League in Vale, where they were attacked by mind-controlled enemies: Team JNPR, a Tentacle Grimm, and several Faunus who all wore distinct masks. They are rescued by the Green Lantern, Jessica Cruz. After making an escape, Jessica explains her origin and reveals the existence of the alien conqueror, Starro, and his plans of world domination to the group as she shows a hologram of the universe, Remnant included. There, she enlists their help in stopping Starro, explaining Starro's intent to conquer the world through the use of powerful Semblances and the might of the Atlas Military.
Shortly after, Arthur Curry takes the group to Atlantis, a city lost to time which is his home. There, they have a moment to rest while Arthur gathers intel from spies in Atlantis, discovering that Starro has aligned with Mr. Lloyd, and the two plan on taking the Dust weaponry to a hanger on the coast of Atlas. The group spends on last night in Atlantis to prepare and enjoy themselves, and in the next morning, set off for Atlas to face Starro.
Given how none of Team RWBY or most of the Justice League can fight in deep waters, the team hatches a plan to defeat Starro. Diana, being one of the few who can survive underwater, attacks Starro without being alerted due to being an Automaton, who does not register as human. With that, Arthur and Blake Belladonna draw Starro's forces to battle, where Victor disables them with his technomancy Semblance. As the fight between Starro's forces and the Justice League wages, Starro calls on Team JNPR to provide himself aid.
As the Justice League’s battle against Starro continues, a mind-controlled Team JNPR joins the fray and does battle with their friends, Team RWBY. During the fight, Jessica Cruz’s mind is taken hold by Starro as she tries to help RWBY, and she begins to attack them. As the strongest member of the Justice League, Jessica uses her powers of creation to create images of Raven Branwen, Summer Rose, Adam Taurus, and Jacques Schnee to distract Team RWBY, and the various origins of the members of the Justice League. The Trinity of the Justice League escape the fight, and lure Starro into a Dust hanger off the coast of Atlas, exploding it with Starro inside, freeing the mind controlled victims.
