ReBoot - Death Blossom Mode by EmpressHelenia ReBoot - Death Blossom Mode by EmpressHelenia
Day Four

If you tied me to a chair and forced me to confess who my least favorite ReBoot character is, I would have to say Matrix. Do you know how much it hurts me so much to say that? I still like him a lot, butů he's just such a whiner!

For a guy with an awesome robotic eye, a killer bod, a hot girlfriend, a cool pet dog, and a gun named GUN, he does an awful lot of complaining. But I guess being separated from his friends and family gives him a lot of emotional baggage. He's really just a big, angry kid.

Still, he was able to put a dent in Megabyte's chest with his bare fists. That's worth a lot of respect.

Yeah, I love 'im, but Matrix has the unfortunate combination of being angsty and short-tempered.

Matrix is my favourite character as well. I wouldn't really call him a whiner. He's technically a teenager stuffed into a grown man's body and a lot of alpha males tend to whine a little. This guy has changed from a child to a Warrior with two people (I consider Frisket a person, just as I do Scuzzy. I love Cats! :heart:). In a sense, now that they're back to Main-Frame Matrix essentially has a case of PTSD and his sense of "fight or flight" is always on. I know that because I have the same.
That heightened sense of defense wears on a person. Matrix has gotten used to firing first and asking questions later whereas his now"civilized" Family is looking at him as a man with a huge attitude. Had Matrix killed Megabyte at the end of Season 3 Season 4 would have to have had a much different ending.....I want MORE Please!!!!

I hope I have not bored nor preached at you. It was never my intent! Your drawings are beautiful and I remember Reboot from when they first aired in the early 90's. I am so happy to have my DVDs.

Basically. Remember that time runs faster in the Games. For all the travelling he did, he aged far faster than he should have.

Exactly. Turbo said he was still "11" but looked much older because of game time. Body of an adult, brain of an angsty kid. :hmm:

The word angst has bad connotations(thanks internet). He is justified in being the way he is. That doesn't mean he can't or shouldn't change.

Um... sure? But angst has always had at least a negative connotation, with or without the internet. I'm just not a fan of characters like that. My personal preference. :shrug:
