As one of the remaining guys who watches ‘Agents of SHIELD’, I was happily surprised to have their version of Deathlok pop up for a guest-shot in a recent episode.  The Demolisher was a fave-rave of mine when I was younger, thanks to a cameo in a run of Captain America that sent me running to my bookstore location for comics featuring the cyborg from the future.  Of course, he’s been revamped and relaunched a BUNCH of times since 1974, but he’s still a contender for my favorite cyborg, right up there with Victor Stone and Big One from J.A.K.Q., leading to today’s cybernetically-enhanced query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) would put the Teen Titans animated Cyborg up against most any machine/man hybrid (Booyah), asking: Which cyborg is the number one cyborg?

Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    I’m gonna stretch it a little and say Fortress Maximus from Transformers. Headmaster version of Fortress had both Spike and Buster Witwicky control him with scifi armor integrated in their bodies at one point and they shared a mental bond with the robot, so I guess it counts. He also had a human, or humanoid pilot in anime versions.
