The Cyborg was created by Dan Jurgens as a way to use the Superman's Death story-line as an arc to the Four Supermen Story. It is written about Hank Henshaw, the leader of a Fantastic Four-like Dc Superhero group from the pages of Adventures of Superman. Henshaw was transmitted into pure energy in space after Lexcorp was involved with killing his fellow team members. Following Superman's death Henshaw transmitted himself into Superman's dead body and became the Cyborg. Henshaw tried to destroy Superman only to have Erradicator, the rogue Superman, destroyed. He continued his activities with Mongul by destroying Green LanternHal Jordan's home, Coast City. Later it was revealed that the Cyborg was resentful of the real Superman returning.

With Superman dead after his battle with Doomsday, the Cyborg claimed to be Superman reborn; DNA tests matched Superman's, and his technology was identifed as Kryptonian.
The Cyborg was imprisoned in the godwave by the souls and memories of all his victims.
However, unknown to Superman, the Cyborg had stored his own consciousness in Superman's suit and upon returning to Earth, the Cyborg split Superman into two beings before his next defeat, also setting off the events that led to Superman's rebirth as one being with his traditional powers and costume.
Within the original Superman mold (wave 1), 3 additional figures were created in their respective order, Bizarro (wave 1), CyborgSuperman (wave 2), and JLA Superman (although wave 1 for JLA, but in reality it was wave 3).
Unlike Superman and Bizarro who "seemed to have" one of its leg shorter than the other, the CyborgSuperman leg seemed to be fixed.
CyborgSuperman cape is actually made of a soft flexible plastic, so keep those scissor and sharp object away from the cape.
