WRITER JOHN SEMPER - "Yeah, there's a futurist by the name of Ray Kurzweil, and has a theory called the Singularity. And the Singularity is the moment when man is so completely merged with machine that the two are indistinguishable from one another. And this is something, because we do have a computer in our pocket, or some of us have it in our eyeglasses, or some of us are wearing virtual reality head-mounted displays and we're immersed in virtual worlds, this is actually very timely right now. This is something that we're dealing with right at the moment. Cyborg is just one step ahead of us. He is the man who has merge with a machine, and the two have become so intertwined that they don't know where one begins and the other one ends. And that's definitely an issue that I'm going to explore. But it can only be best explored through the human side, because that's the side that we as humans are interested in. So the technology is a huge part of this, but the only reason I don't make a big deal out of talking about it is, A) It's obvious, and B) It's not the thing that's been given the least amount of attention. The technology part has been given attention already, but the personality side of Vic is the side I think needs a little more investigating. Vic is the Singularity, right in front of us. And exploring that is going to be a lot of fun. Yes, Detroit is going to end up having a starring role in the comic book. Vic is a black guy living in Detroit, and we're going to really explore that. We're not going to shy away from it. It's going to be real as far as that's concerned."
