Look at Booster Gold and Blue Beetle in Smallville!

They're looking mighty accurate.

 The suit's flashy, yet practical. 

A live action Booster Gold.  There’s something truly remarkable about a show like SMALLVILLE getting successful enough that its crew can basically do whatever they want for this tenth and final season. In this case (reported via TV Guide) you’ve got a living, breathing vision of Booster Gold played by Eric Martsolf that looks spot-on accurate to the character as he was introduced in the comics. And let’s emphasize his introduction, since the Booster appearing in the April 22 episode of SMALLVILLE will be the glory hog jock we knew first before he went through all his character growth and maturation.

Seeing as how BG’s coming from the future, it’s worth noting how the continuity of the DCU will take some twists in turns to fit him into SMALLVILLE’s “verse.” For one, Booster’s actually going to be partially inspiring Clark to finally become Superman. While his showboating ways will certainly put off the “do good deeds in secret” philosophy, the positive way that the masses respond to him will show Clark how said masses need an indentifiable hero. And better Supes than Booster Gold, right? == TEASER ==

The temporal-reordering doesn't stop there, of course. BG will also be sheppharding the origin of Blue Beetle, with Jaime Reyes getting the scabbard and beginning his own transformation in this episode, as well. Anybody hoping for the old Blue and Gold magic will have to wait, though. Reyes will (naturally) be put off by Booster's ostentatious airs, so the dream team will be at odds in this one.

Blue Beetle looks weird, never liked those big pincher things on his back. But I love Booster's suit, I especially love the addition of the sponsor patches.

Skeets in Smallville does seem funny. I don't think that will even happen.

@The Sadhu: now that would be the icing on the cake!
 
This photo may not be a good angle on Blue Beetle's costume and we may find it more interesting in the episode (let's hope!)

Agreed on all counts.

I like Booster's suit, but Jaime's looks like a big robot.

woah when did the white ranger dump the Power Rangers for these guys?

I love Booster Gold! And he looks great here! 
 
Blue Beetle looks ok. I'm ok with it be Jamie but i'd prefer Ted.

Posted by KZR

Look out Booster. There's an evil robot behind you.

Posted by Rixec

O...  M...  G. This picture is freaking awesome! I can't wait to see them in the episode once they get through the final editing and all.  Booster Gold looks like an official commander of a future SWAT team and Blue Beetle III has a real alien appearance. Sweet!

Posted by Duo_forbidden

Nice. Can't wait to see this episode.

Hate to be the Continuity Creep, but that is definitely NOT Ted Kord and Booster Gold? His script I can hear all ready. "Hey, I saved the Blur! Now Clark, would you like to buy some sunglasses?" Booster Gold = Biggest NASCAR hero ever.

Posted by Bearded Justice

this will be the second episode of smallville that i watch 
 
JUST to see Ted Kord
Posted by CrimsonAvenger

Smallville just keeps getting better and better (I'm not joking, I actually love this Show). Booster Gold's costume looks good but Jamie Reyes' costume looks awful.

Posted by haydenclaireheroes

Blue Beetle looks like a Power Rangers villian. Not even a villian from the later series but from the Mighty Morphin series. That is sad

Posted by Croi

You can just tell that when Blue Beetle looks at someone, his whole body is going to turn with his head.

Ted will be in that very same episode, and he'll have his own episode the week before.

beetleborgs XD
Posted by chalkshark

At this point, if the CW can't come up with a plausible spin-off series, featuring one of the number of DC Universe characters running around Smallville, than they're just not trying very hard.

Posted by Kastiel

Blue Beetle is a mess.

Posted by shawn87

Im not feeling Blue Beetle at all...Booster Gold isn't that bad...but it could have been better

Posted by Mercy_

BOOSTER! YES! 
 
Not feeling the Blue Beetle costume.

@The Poet: It is slated to air April 22 according to IMDB
I really liked the way they handled the Justice Society (at least Hawkman) so I think this should turn out to be good.
Posted by Video_Martian

Gotta agree with some of u guys, I'm gettin sick & tired of Smallville as well. 
 
and WHY is DC always trying to make Jaime Reyes seem like a cool guy?!?  That little snot annoys me like you wouldn't imagine.  I thought that Smallville was supposed to be about the early origins of Superman & other related DC characters, so WHY are they using Reyes instead of Ted Kord?!?  Ted Kord was and IS a better Blue Beetle than that brat Reyes would EVER be.  Plus, his power ranger rip-off costume isn't doing much to help out his case either... 
 
Dammit, sometimes DC/WB can really get on my freakin nerves.  First DC's ending & RESTARTING Flash's series again for no reason, and now this... 
 
Oh, well, I guess Booster doesn't look too bad here...

Posted by jazzblade

Booster Gold's patches kinda remind me of Greg Kinnear's Captain Amazing from Mystery Men

Posted by Rixec

@CrimsonAvenger: According to Geoff Johns, "This is the first time the scarab comes onto Jaime, so it creates a bulkier, more dangerous armor. Ultimately he'll gain more control over the scarab and it will become more friendly looking." So it bound to get better. Which is sweet. :)

Posted by Rixec
@haydenclaireheroes: That's how the armor looks the first time it comes into being. As Jaime ganis more control it will become closer to the one we normally see, so it might become less MMPR monster like.

That's the problem with the scarab suit without a large budget  and CGI, it's my childhood all over again.
