Storyline

After being released from a prison in a laboratory of Luthorcorp's Cyntechnics by sympathetic scientist Dr. Hong, former Metropolis High football player Victor Stone is chased by armed security guards and hit by Lana's truck, without any harm. The car is totally destroyed, Lana wounds her forehead and Victor takes her to a hospital. Lana calls Clark, and he meets Victor, who played football against him in high school and died a year ago in a car crash. Victor explained that he became a living machine as part of the machine project researched by the evil Dr. Allister Krieg sponsored by Luthorcorp. Further, he misses his girlfriend Katherine. Clark promises to help him and visits Lex, who lies and tells Clark that he was not aware of the project. Meanwhile, Martha is blackmailed with a DVD showing Clark on a security camera rescuing the unconscious Lana from the warehouse explosion (from episode 'Lockdown') and Lionel offers to help her find the blackmailer.

The third fantastic episode of a DC Comics hero
21 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Much like the introduction of the character The Flash from the Season 4 episode 'Run,' or Arthur Curry earlier this season, Smallville introduces another superhero from DC Comics lore in Victor Stone, later known as Cyborg.

Clark encounters a lab escapee named Victor, who played against Clark in the football state championship the year before in their senior years of high school. Victor explains that he was part of a fatal crash, and nearly all of his body was destroyed. However, he woke up to a body made up of cybernetic parts, mostly a machine. Victor is retrieved back to the lab despite the intentions of a sympathetic surgeon/scientist, as Lex Luthor intends to do additional studies on the scientific breakthrough. Victor also is concerned about how his former girlfriend will accept his new cybernetic state.

The greatest appeal of this episode was the black-and-white clarity of Clark's willingness to ally with others with unique powers, while Lex, in his continuous turn towards evil, has no problem doing ethically questionable research on such people. Additionally, Victor Stone is a cool character from DC Comics, normally part of some incarnation of the Teen Titans.
