COMIC BOOK BIO by Image WikiEdit
The comic-book focused upon a team of mutants who had all at one point been captured by Cyberdata, an enormous corporation with ambitions of world-takeover. Cyberdata was run by brilliant scientists who had created advanced cybernetics technology and had employed this technology to create "Special Hazardous Operations Cyborg" or S.H.O.C.s. The captured mutants were all used in the experiments that had lead to the creation of the S.H.O.C.s, and had had their mutant abilities enhanced with cybernetic implants. The mutants escaped and banded together as Cyberforce to put an end to Cyberdata's plans. One of the lesser successes of the first wave of Image Comics, Cyberforce received the same heavy criticism that most of the other titles did. Many pointed out that the characters from Cyberforce bore strong resemblances to Marvel characters, with Cyblade being very similar to the X-Men character Psylocke. Additionally, there were many complaints of the large amount of violence in Cyberforce, as well as the highly sexualized female characters. Cyberforce gradually faded away, with Ripclaw (arguably the most popular and recognizable character from the series) making occasional guest appearances elsewhere, most notably in Silvestri's series The Darkness.
