The NEW Blue Beetle?

#1 Posted by Jaqueline (6 posts) - - Show Bio

Well, to me I think that he's better than the other two.

I mean - come on - he has the coolest powers, and who doesn't want a sccarab merged to your spinal cord?

But I've heard a lot of complaints 'bout this new Jaime character...What's so bad about him?

He is like Iron Man - Douche + Texas - Redneck + a shot of pure awesome juice

I haven't heard any complaints. What kind of complaints? And he is awesome.

What does that equal?

Blue Beetle of course. Drinking a glass of orange soda and watching his armor kick everyone's a$$.

It's not all about powers. There are fans of Ted Kord that want him back. Don't think it's problems with Jamie (I love him), it's just that they miss Ted.

I miss Ted (who had no powers), but I like the new Blue Beetle too.

Yes, I also saw the cover to the next issue with Booster shot and Blue Beetle about to take out Max Lord.

I wonder...why is Ted such a need?

They could use another guy smarter than him to what they want

It's not because he's a smart guy, DC has plenty of those (Atom, Mr. T, Batman, John Henry etc.). It's because of his character, especially when paired with Booster Gold. There is more to a good character than who's behind they can kick.

I agree with the fact that everyone likes Ted more - because he's been around so much longer...

And... Are you refering to Jaime being the smarter one? Because he actually isn't too bright, he has no idea how to work his suit that well yet. The only difference between him and Ted is that the Beetle likes Jaime more, it gave him an exoskeleton.

No, Ted was a smart guy. He was an inventor and the one who tracked down what Lord and Checkmate were up to. No one took him seriously, so he faced him alone.

No way, I can totally see the zipper on that costume. XP (j/k)

I like Jaime, he's a great character, and I love the depth they've seem to given him. I read issue one and was hooked. Ted, I became a fan of his in prelude to infinite crisis, unknowing that it ended with his death. I would love for him to be back in the comics. I think he could be brought back as the q to Jamies 007.

Jaime IS awesome and he's learning a lot already.But whenever he talkes to the scarab out loud,people think he's talking to himself(like Supergirl and Wonder girl-Blue Beetle #18)

I miss Ted. Nothing against the new guy, but he'll never replace Ted to me.

I'm going to be pissed if Booster dies.

1 - I like Ted, but I like Booster more.

2 - It'd make this one of the shortest ongoing titles in the history of comics.
