Justice League: How Cyborg and Aquaman Are the 'Most Similar' Characters

While all of the heroes of Justice League share things in common, Ray Fisher thinks his character - Cyborg - and Aquaman have a unique bond. This Sunday, a brand-new trailer for DC's upcoming epic will drop and offer us the final look at the film before it arrives next month. While many are still hoping to see an appearance by Superman or Green Lantern, it's likely we'll see more of the same 5 heroes. Not that that's a bad thing.

While Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman all teamed-up last year, we've yet to really see them all mesh. As for Cyborg, The Flash, and Aquaman, they've had nothing more than cameos in the DC film universe so far. When Justice League arrives, however, it will serve as an opportunity to pair of various heroes and see how they work together. Of course, there will be plenty of conflicts as well.

Geek Magazine recently interviewed the cast, and Fisher, in particular, had a lot to say about the character. He broke down why he thinks Cyborg and Aquaman share such a connection.

"I feel that Victor and Aquaman are probably the most similar in that they're two individuals struggling with living basically half in one world, half in another. We could say the same thing about all of the characters, but specifically Aquaman being half-human and half-Atlantean, and Cyborg being half-human and half-robot. I think there is a recognition between them where they may not necessarily get along, and they may not necessarily trust one another at first, but it's that thing when you see someone who's like you, and when you resent yourself to begin with, it could create that sort of conflict between them. There is also a very deep level of respect at the same time."

We've heard already that Cyborg and The Flash will have a bond, and that makes sense because they have a shared traumatic experience, but Cyborg's connection to Aquaman is something else entirely, and it's not necessarily a similarity that will help them form a close bond.

Sure, Cyborg hasn't really spent time in a society full of machines as Aquaman has the Atlanteans, but he's still only half in the human world, with the other half in whatever the digital realm of the Mother Box is. It's important to note that Diana also belongs to two different worlds; however, she has been exiled from her people and living on earth for long enough that maybe that duality is less prevalent than it was in the events of Wonder Woman.

Regardless, it will be interesting to see the swashbuckling Aquaman and the monotone Cyborg pair off - or not. There's also the diversity the two characters share, as the only people of color in the League. While that will likely mean more to fans in the real world, it could also bond the characters in Justice League.
