Once, he was the hired killer known as Angelo Mortalli.
Now, there is only Bloodshot. Brought back from the grave by the government scientists of Project Rising Spirit, Bloodshot is powered by microscopic nano-machines that can repair all injuries and maximize his physical potential. But the nanites can’t replace his lost memories – or help him shake the feeling that he was once anything but a hero.
