|~ The Exo-Skin talking to Jenny|
The Exo-Skin was an invention and recurring antagonist in Nickelodeon tv show My Life as a Teenage Robot. It made its first appearance in the episode "Raggedy Android" as a prototype. It later returned in "The Return of Raggedy Android" as the main antagonist.
Dr. Nora Wakeman made the exo-skin for her Jenny/XJ-9 in the episode "Raggedy Android" to make her look more human to the people of Tremorton. Even though the prototype was used rarely, Jenny wanted to use it again. Unfortunately, the prototype wasn't as successful as Jenny expected as it scared people. As a result, Mrs. Wakeman made some modifications to the suit later on.
Jenny uses the skin again in "The Return of Raggedy Android" now with new modifications to hit on Don Prima at Mezmer's. It completely transformed her into a beautiful human girl. Unfortunately, the exo-skin reveals itself to have a mind on its own and becomes very vicious as it attaches to Jenny, almost leaving her without any chance of escaping from it's grasp. Thankfully, Jenny is able to free herself from it's control by pouring a milkshake on her. After a short fight, she supposedly kills the exo-skin. Although, after Jenny and the other teenagers leave, the exo-skin latches onto Mezmer.
The exo-skin did not appear for the rest of the series as Mezmer briefly returns in "Labor Day". It is unknown what happen to the exo-skin and how Mezmer managed to free himself from it.
- It's most likely that the Exo-Skin was inspired by Venom from Spider-Man.
- It is also similar to the Mask of the Beast from The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mindy as both are possessors and are voiced by Grey DeLisle.
