"Who was Bloodshot? Red eyes. White skin. Guns...lots of guns."
Stripping a character down to its core character tells you everything about them. Batman is a justice seeking detective, Superman is a being using his power for bettering mankind and Wonder Woman is a fierce warrior defending her people. If you take away their abilities, their core personalities still persist. Bloodshot is another character like that--take away the nanites and you've likely still got a man willing to be a hero. In Bloodshot Reborn #1 from Valiant Entertainment, he demonstrates a desire to return to form. The issue is written by Jeff Lemire, illustrated by Mico Suayan, colored by David Baron and lettered by David Lanphear.
