Justice League’s premiere is fast approaching, and we are getting more details of how the film will make these classic superheroes help underrepresented groups.

In Geek Magazine’s interview with Ray Fisher, Screenrant reports that Fisher’s Cyborg was meant to be a character to represent folks for disabilities.

Fisher had this to say about the importance of this group being represented.

“I’ve had lots of fans who come out and say ‘Listen, I can relate to Cyborg because I lost a limb,’ or ‘I have this cochlear implant.’ It’s one of those things when you actually start seeing it, when you actually start hearing about it, that made Cyborg more relevant to me than I think he ever had been up until that point.”

Fisher also mentioned that “both screenwriter Chris Terrio and former director Zack Snyder made very conscious decisions in their construction of Cyborg”.
