Queen Vexus disguised as "Vee"

Vexus (formerly Queen Vexus) is the main antagonist in My Life as a Teenage Robot. She was the reigning monarch of Cluster Prime and leader of the Cluster, and is still one of XJ-9's most recurring foes. She was voiced by the late Eartha Kitt in all of her appearances except in Around the World in Eighty Pieces and as Violet and Vicky in Queen Bee where she is voiced by Cree Summer.

Background

Vexus and Dr. Wakeman have been opponents for what must have been quite some time, and Vexus was likely the inspiration for Jenny's creation. XJ-9 typically can outwit and outperform Vexus, but regardless, Vexus has the resources of an entire planet to call upon. Occasionally she does gain the upper hand, typically through trickery and sabotage.

She possesses the ability to transform, but typically for means of disguise, compared to the multitude of battle forms that Jenny typically uses. Her known forms are as the photographer, a robotic nurse, another robot girl named "QT-2", a girl named "Violet", and as "Vicky".

Queen Vexus disguised as "Vicky"

In Escape from Cluster Prime, it's revealed that Queen Vexus has a daughter named Vega. During the course of the movie, Queen Vexus is dethroned by Jenny and Nora Wakeman (with Sheldon's help) and Vega takes the leadership of Cluster Prime for her own. It's assumed that Krakus, Smytus, and herself got destroyed in the destruction of a dump asteroid. However, she was shown to be alive in "Queen Bee" and donned a new look (which means that she survived).

Being 2,000 years old, Vexus' skill with slang and relating to teenagers is a bit rusty. In an attempt to infiltrate Tremorton High, she dressed like a Flapper and spouted all the hottest 1920s lingo like "bee's knees" and "23 skiddoo".

A cunning and cruel robot queen, Vexus (voiced by Eartha Kitt) is bent on the enslavement of the human race. She is the main antagonist of the series. A sneaky android, photographer in "Hostile Makeover", the robot nurse Vee in "Tradeshow Showdown", the flirtatious teenage robot QT-2 (pronounced "Cutie 2") in "Designing Women", and even the transfer student Vicky in "Queen Bee". Vexus was enemies with Dr. Wakeman. First appearing in "Hostile Makeover", Vexus infected Jenny with a nanobot, "slowly changing her from within, into a... monster "A HIDEOUS MONSTER!" Her plan is foiled when Wakeman manages to short-circuit her creation and remove the nanobot. She later showed up in "Tradeshow Showdown" where she assimilated all the robots in the convention, only for Jenny to deactivate her whole new army. Eventually, in "Designing Women", Vexus grew tired of Jenny always defeating her drones with the seemingly endless gadgets she can pull out at will. In disguise as "QT-2" (as mentioned before), Vexus coaxed Sheldon out of Jenny's master blueprints (which he originally stole to find the way to her heart). Vexus nearly had Jenny beat, now able to calculate her every move, but some quick thinking outside the box left Jenny the victor in the end.

Finally, in the TV movie "Escape from Cluster Prime", Vexus attempts to bring Jenny into the Cluster on the tricentennial of Tremorton. When the fight is over, Vexus escaped via teleporter on her hovercraft. After the townsfolk shun Jenny for the damage to the town and the ruined festivities, Jenny is left to clean up the mess, and she accidentally stumbles through the Cluster portal, landing in her enemies' home planet. Completely unaware of this turn of events, Vexus finally loses patience and pulls a full-scale invasion of Earth. During Jenny's time on Cluster Prime, she realizes that Vexus has been lying to her people. There, the robot XJ-9 has been painted as the barbaric android who stole the planet's supply of golden computer chips (the part that functions their weapons systems,by whom the creator tend to created back then), when it was really Vexus who was guilty of the crime (however, comically because of the barbaric overtones in her poster, no one on Cluster Prime even realized she was XJ-9). In the end, Vexus was overthrown, and it is assumed her benevolent daughter, Princess Vega, took the throne.

However, Vexus appears again in "Trash Talk" and "Queen Bee", repeatedly attempting to exact her revenge of Jenny for her loss of power. However, Vexus was clearly starting to lose control of her mind; as she had created a spaceship for escape that could only contain a hamster. Later, Vexus returns to Tremorton and pretends to be "Violet" at Tremorton High, but Jenny was able to recognize her without having to remove her disguise. The Crust Cousins run into Vexus, and take her with them so that she could learn slang. On the next day, Brit and Tiff introduce Vexus as "Vicky", and she was able to beat Jenny in "fitting in and being popular". However, Vexus (disguised as "Vicky") was becoming even more popular than the Crust Cousins themselves. She had nearly defeated Jenny by using disruptors placed around the school by Brit and Tiff. The Crusts had no other choice but to remove the devices they had planted earlier, so they wouldn't "remain as social outcasts". Vexus is left buried in a pile of ice cubes, but she was no longer popular when Jenny told the students that their "queen was two thousand years old". Despite being unpopular, Vexus is still alive, which means that she is not officially defeated in the series.

Personality

Vexus is sneaky, conniving, and overall evil in nature. However, she is also shown to have clear love and worry for her daughter and even her husband, whose very angry and happen to be xenophobic against human in nature, will do everything to protect her until she betrayed Vega of giving out the chips especially in "Escape From Cluster Prime" she called Vega to check up on her while Vexus was commencing her plan to take over Earth.

Relationships

Jenny Wakeman

Jenny is Vexus' greatest enemy, and possibly equal. Vexus will go to great lengths to bring Jenny over to the side of the Cluster, and enslave humanity, but to no avail, since Jenny is a firm Earth defender through and through.

Brad Carbunkle

In "Queen Bee!" she was disguised as "Vicky". Like most of the boys in school Brad was attracted to the disguise. She regards him as a pathetic flesh-wearer, as she hates the entire human race.

Tuck Carbunkle

On her first appearance "Hostile Makeover" Vexus made Jenny into a monster with her nano bot and when Tuck and Mrs. Wakeman were trying to save her and when Tuck ran and ran, Vexus got him and when Brad turned Jenny back to normal... Jenny realized Vexus had Tuck and thanks to XJ-1 Vexus' nano bot got out and Jenny said if Vexus hurt Tuck she would destroy her nano bot.

Sheldon Lee

In "Designing Women!" Vexus disguised herself as QT-2 so she can fool Sheldon into making him love her and Vexus got Jenny's blueprint (the way to Jenny's heart).

Nora Wakeman

It's mentioned a few times throughout the show that Nora and Vexus had met/fought before. When XJ-9 was in Vexus' total control by her nano bot in "Hostile Makeover!", Mrs. Wakeman and Tuck came to save her and get her back to normal. In the movie "Escape From Cluster Prime!", Mrs. Wakeman fought Vexus to save XJ-9, and mentioning how "it must bring back the painful memories of how I brought you down!"This refers of how she's going to recite of how she and her husband/creator promised of finishing what they've started with her for so long.

The XJ-Sisters

The Cluster

An alternate planet which one of Vexus's creator once going to make a world a much safer place, when her creator gone completely mad due to an emotionally backstories of his own assaults that ones he'd once care is gone into the program and were never compensated.

Powers and abilities

Vexus is a very powerful opponent that is not to be underestimated. She is intelligent, ruthless, and will use any means to get what she wants.

Superhuman Strength: Not much is know about Vexus' strength, it is shown during her fights she possesses strength that allows her physically harm Jenny, hinting that she might as strong if not stronger than her. Also when Vexus was furious at the trouble Jenny caused (she turned all her people against Vexus) she furiously beat Jenny before Wakeman came to her side

Shapeshifting: Vexus also possesses the ability to shape and morph her body in multiple disguises as shown when she posed as a human photographer, QT2, and Vicky.

Flight: Much like Jenny, Vexus is capable of flight. Although she uses her wings instead of rocket boosters.

Teleportation/Portal Creation: Vexus is able to create portal that allow her to travel on and off Cluster Prime or away from her foes in the blink of an eye.

Energy Beams: She can emit powerful beams of green energy from her eyes and her hands.

Trivia

  • While Eartha Kitt voiced Queen Vexus for the whole show, Cree Summer took over for her in one episode (Around the World in Eighty Pieces) and her disguises Violet and Vicky in Queen Bee.
    • There was another cartoon character who had to go through a similar change; Eartha Kitt was also the voice of Yzma in the Disney film The Emporer's New Groove, but due to Kitt's death, she was replaced by Candi Milo (who, ironically, also worked on My Life as a Teenage Robot). 
  • He is similar Sharko Voice from "Zig and Sharko"
  • The whole diva-like way of speaking and personality of Vexus (and also Yzma's in The Empore's New Groove) is inspired by her voice actress Eartha Kitt
  • In the episode Queen Bee Vexus was different than in the other episodes. 
  • It should be noticed that her overall appearance is reminiscent of both a bee and an Egyptian pharaoh, symbolizing her rank as queen and ruler of the hive-like Cluster.
