Bloodshot is a fictional superhero, a character in the Valiant Universe, a violent but heroic super-soldier with nanites in his blood that give him special powers. These powers included the ability to regenerate from any wound if he consumes enough matter, the ability to alter his body shape, and the ability to communicate with machines making him to be considered a soldier with superhuman physicality. His body was engineered by secret government organization Project Rising Spirit to turn him into a living weapon. The alteration of his and made him lose his memories, Rising Spirit implanted false memories for each mission to manipulate and motivate him. Bloodshot would eventually break free of their control and begin living his own life, attempting to atone for his sins and figure out who he truly is.

Bloodshot looks very similar to Ray, a character of Valiant’s future timeline who, in valiant comic’s universe, was designed to look like legendary Bloodshot in the comic books origin.

Bloodshot was created by writers Kevin Vanhook. Artis Don Perlin, and editor/writer, Bob Layton in 1992. Below please find a video explaining his transition from comic book to movie.
