Titans Tower File Photos:

Cyborg was mysteriously thrown into the distant past and landed in the middle of a barbarian village that needed his help. With his power supply dwindling, Cyborg had to rely on more primitive battle maneuvers. Quickly proving himself in battle, Cyborg garnered the respect of the brave warrior queen known as Sarasim – and also earned disdain from the warrior known as Krall.

Krall had made a dangerous bargain with an evil witch, who sent mystical wormlike beings to invade the village. Krall’s quest for power led to his transformation into a similar wormlike creature at the hands of the evil witch. As Cyborg and Sarasim bonded in battle, their relationship began to deepen. Just as the battle with Krall reached its peak, Cyborg was rescued back to the present by Raven.

Concerned about Sarasim’s fate, Cyborg was comforted by evidence in one of Raven’s books. Raven’s book told of Krall’s defeat at the hands of Sarasim – and a brave warrior who fought without armor; That warrior… was Cyborg himself.

The name Sarasim is a reference to Cyborg’s love interest in the comic book series, Sarah Simms. But the similarities end there. A far cry from a barbarian queen, Sarah Simms was a teacher at West Side School for the Handicapped – where the students coped with prosthetic limbs. The children looked up to Vic, who had his own ‘metal prosthetics,’ of a sort. Vic and Sarah Simms remained close friends. Although each of them danced around the idea of a romantic relationship, this would never come to pass. Sarah first appeared in NEW TEEN TITANS #8 [1981] and remained a supporting player in the Titans book until the late 1980s.
