After becoming quite aquainted with the young Jaime Reyes, i would be saddened if he would die.
At the start of Brightest Day Ryan Choi (The Atom), another young hero died a tragic death.
Would DC kill two young prospects in one event? If anyone's read Infinite Crisis youd know the answer.
We know DC isnt afraid to kill just about anyone. The question is, if he dies, will he come back?
Over the past year DC has been pushing Blue Beetle in to the general media.
Hes been a prime character in Batman the Brave and the Bold and is also soon be be in an episode of smallville.
Is this all part of DC's master plan? To get an audience so attached to a character, that when that character dies, we beg them to bring that character back?
Who knows. If he dies, many people will be upset because DC has branched out to more minorities and after killing Ryan Choi, this would take another step back.
What we do know is that DC has solicited their comics for March 2011 and on that solicitation list, is Justice League: Generation Lost with a picture of Jaime Reyes dead.
It’s the calm before the storm in issue #21. Beetle is dead, Max Lord has Checkmate and the hunt for Wonder Woman has begun. But Booster Gold has given up after losing another friend to Max Lord, and the JLI is left without a leader!
