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.

Matrix is too confusing on one aspect.. As you know Enzo..His old copy was made during the reboot of mainframe which begs the question that I just had to wonder.. if grownup Matrix has the hot girlfriend... Does that mean that Enzo the copy will get the same old girlfriend in the future or will he be enough a rewrite to get his own girlfriend?.. Makes one think yes?.. That is why maybe a reboot of the series is needed more than continuing it..  Having Two Matrix around would be confusing enough but having two of the same girl around would get too

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

Great to finally see pics from a series that is still one of my favorite shows ever

Hehe, I kind of agree with your comments there a bit.... :XD: He did seem quite broody, didn't he? :D

Omigosh, still....

Love the lighting in this picture too. Your choice of background colors is always awesome! :la:

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.

[i] He's really just a big, angry kid. [/i]

Basically. Remember that time runs faster in the Games. For all the travelling he did, he aged far faster than he should have.
EmpressHelenia Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2012
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:
Bloodly Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2012
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.
EmpressHelenia Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2012
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:
Makosharkman Featured By Owner May 6, 2015
I take it you like him better as the little boy am I right.

Also how did that cute little boy end up like this.

Believe it or not, but I think adult Enzo is pretty much inspired from Kano of Mortal Kombat.
SailorOdango Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2012
Awesome job again. Yeah, he really does complain a lot but in some ways it is understandable and at least he has AndrAIa to pull him out of his funk.

Love the whole ReBoot portraits that you've done, they're wicked.
NIELSPETERDEJONG Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2012
Great pic right here! :D

I found that he complained a lot too, though then again it did somehow make him a non-mary sueish kind of guy in a different way. If you know what I mean :)

OMG!! I haven't hear about this series in ages! Enzo is so hardcore!!!

Matrix ftw

Matrix. He needs to take anger management courses with Kevin Levin.
jen-kollic Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
You're right, he is just a big angry kid. Obviously he needs to get laid more.
EmpressHelenia Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2012
Ummmm... somehow I think that already happens. Doesn't make enough of a difference, though. Still angry. :saddummy:
shinyhappygoth Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2012
Yeah, I rather suspect that accounts for most of their Copious Free Time. Hey, they've got a lot of stress to relieve.
jen-kollic Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Oh, I have no doubt that it happens, I just think it needs to happen a bit more. Though if it was happening often enough for Matrix to not be angsty, I don't think he'd have time for anything else. And it wouldn't be a kid's show any more.
