Watch: We honor The Matrix's Morpheus for Black History Month's 28 Days of Heroes

Yeah, Keanu Reeves' Neo typically gets top billing, but it's guys like Morpheus who kept the human resistance going long before that heavy-handed Jesus figure escaped The Matrix.

Morpheus serves as a mentor to young Neo throughout the Matrix trilogy, introducing him to the awesomeness of defying physics and kicking butt with kung fu. Not to mention the fact that Morpheus is one smart dude and knows pretty much everything. So you should listen to him. Red pill, blue pill, it's pretty simple.

He's an iconic character from one of the biggest sci-fi franchises in modern history, so we pour one out for Morpheus and his unstoppable spirit.

Join us in our celebration.
