Abstract
Current comic book cyborgs reveal much about how these characters are perceived. In addition to movies, comic books represent the most prevalent medium in which many children and adults are forming their impressions of cyborgian culture. One of the more interesting characteristics of this culture is the divisions that comic book cyborgs can be sifted into. These categories are, in order of increasing complexity, simple controller, bio-tech integrator and genetic cyborgs. Comic book cyborgs also expose some the psychological reactions that these characters evoke in us, ranging from a deep ambivalence towards violence and killing to issues of lost humanity and, finally, to new conceptions of the nature of evil.
