what she says: i’m fine
what she means: victor stone aka cyborg, portrayed by ray fisher in justice league (2017) dir. zack snyder, is a very compelling character, and his backstory that was addressed in the film is very emotionally driven. as a black man, before his death and transition to his superhero form, victor stone already had to face some form of oppression due to the color of his skin. the car crash he and his family were in resulted in his death, but his father didn’t want to lose him the same way he lost his wife/victor’s mother, which motivated victor’s transition from human to cyborg. however, this is a change that victor isn’t used to, and ever since the post-accident transformation, he’s seen himself as anything less than human based off his physical appearance and foreign abilities. it is also indicated in the beginning of the film that no one knows that victor is alive and that he is yet to introduce himself as cyborg to the world. victor stone’s greatest fear is other people seeing him as a monster because of how he looks and how he behaves - a similar mentality expressed in anti-black racism.
