Probably won't bring it back since it wasn't that long ago when the cancelled it and now Jaime is in Generation Lost so there's that. Besides I think they killed/are going to kill him.

Nah, they wouldn't DARE with the fallout from the Ryan Choi incident still hanging over their heads. 
Plus, he's appearing in the Supergirl title a week or two after he's supposed to 'die'.

That is true, I almost completely forgot the Ryan Choi thing (I miss him). Yeah, critics already labeled that as "white washing" they wouldn't dare do something like kill Jaime to bring back Ted (at least not this soon)

I wish they'd bring back Ted, and keep Jaime. :( 
No reason not to…aside from Dan Dideo being stubborn for no reason.

I don't like Jaime.  He's annoying on Batman: TB&TB and he would be even MORE annoying if he had his own series again. 
 
and yes, DC killing off Ryan Choi was the DUMBEST DECISION THEY'VE EVER MADE.  And they should also bring back Ted Kord, I miss him.

@Icarusflies: I see Jaime as being a rip-off of Iron Man w/ the personality of Peter Parker, but with NONE of Peter's charm or likability  =P  He's also the only member of the Teen Titans I've always hated, along with Bombshell...

Blue Beetle is comming back in 2011 in his own series, or at least Didio hinted that last year.
 
Score one for Jaime fans ;)

"No one will be able to replace Hal and Barry. They are the TRUE green lantern and flash" they once said

it wasn't a trailer, it was a low budget pilot to show only how the transformation would look like.

lol because I like to talk about it, the main reason of my last question was because I seriously don't know anyone who has actually read the Blue Beetle comic and doesn't like Jaime.
 
Many people that I know that hated Jaime because they loved Ted were convinced by me to try the comic and changed completely their mind. Even Darkchild who is like THE Ted Kord fan
 
so just doing a recomendation, it was a masterpiece and the character was created and written by Giffen who is THE writer that made Ted such a fan favorite in the first place
#36 Posted by Icarusflies (12503 posts) - - Show Bio
@Nighthunter: I saw some of the co-feature. It was terrible. 
I really won't change my mind. It just doesn't happen. I can be completely wrong, but I shall stand firm. I'm pretty sure I'd argue against the laws of physics if it was at all possible. 
 
And so…there is NO WAY I am buying that series. If my terrible little local library gets it in, I MIGHT read it. And then, I will convince myself into hating it. 
 
I'm just that stubborn.

@Nighthunter: Correction, NO ONE will be able to replace Ted Kord, he is the TRUE Blue Beetle, not this annoying-ass, whiny, unbearable teenager Jaime Reyes XP 
@Icarusflies: You see, what Johns should have done during Blackest Night was have the Black Lantern Ted Kord KILL Jaime, turn him into a Black Lantern, KILL HIM AGAIN, and then ressurect Ted as a White Lantern during Brightest Day.  NOW THAT WOULD BE AWESOME =D

@mr.obvious: Nuh-uh, I don't think they should KILL Jaime…just because of 'Ryan Choi' syndrome. I don't care if Jaime is alive as long as Ted is TOO!

#39 Posted by Video_Martian (5645 posts) - - Show Bio
@Icarusflies: I dunno, I could care less if they kill him off or not.  I STILL don't like him... 
 
I also think they should bring back Ted, but I doubt DC's gonna do that, since he's been dead for so long (however, this hasn't affected Barry Allen! ;)  There was also a story arc in the Booster Gold comic recently where Booster saved Ted from Maxwell Lord's attack, but drastically affected the future in the process.  This was pretty much DC's lame attempt to have Ted stay dead, and so they can keep Jaime as their current Blue Beetle -_- 
 
Sometimes I just don't get DC...

Ted is a great character, but I like Jaime too, It would be great if they brought Ted back without killing Jaime.  If barry and wally can co-exist again, then Ted and Jaime can too.

I actually wouldn't mind if DC did this, even though I still prefer Ted over Jaime...

Exactly most people that dislike him haven't read any of Jaime stuff, i know he is wrote as a bit of a douche in Teen Titans but in Rogers and Giffens series he is really quite funny and the books are entertaining as a whole although the art might take some getting used to but it suits the tone of the book. I know Ted was a bit of a ledg and that but i say let him rest i mean his death was pretty iconic and that they should just leave it alone like marvel has done with Captain Mar-vell. with Jaime being young fresh and fun I don't see why he cant take up the mantel.

I love Jaime; he is the reason I started buying comic books so he must come back. Besides, I've read that he'll appear in Batgirl so that means there's hope! When I read JLGL yesterday I stared at those last three pages for several minutes. Never have I been that affected by a comic. Ted was a good hero who died for what he believed in, but the mantle has been passed and, despite how everything's going, Jaime's not done yet!

So I keep reading a lot of comments saying that Jaime won't die because of Ryan Choi's death....does this mean that Ryan is going to stay dead and won't be brought back at some point? BTW, I'm ecstatic to know Jaime is coming back!
