Firestorm (Jason Rusch) and Blue Beetle (Jaime Reyes)...

Are starting to become very popular on this site, based on the battle threads they have been mentioned in. And, they haven't even been around that long. Anyone else agree?

They've both been around a long time but their current incarnations haven't been. Truth though, I like the characters they are now more than the old stuff, granted, I haven't had as much exposure to their older stuff as I do the current stuff. Both of them are just good characters with great personalities that get shown both in and out of costume, that's why I like them.

i didnt like the old jokey blue beetle or the old firestorm. blue beetle got fat at one point and couldnt fit into his costume... and firestorm just didnt do it for me. they're both cool now.

Blue Beetles definitely getting a lot more attention now, and i get the feeling he's going to get a lot more attention next year when he's brought more into mainstream adventures...

Firestorms always been a favorite of mine, ever since he teamed up with Kyle Rayner to take care of the professor when he was a Firegod living in the sun of a distant planet :D

I hear that he is going to take super girl place on the teen titans.

I know Firestorm is joining the JLA (he lost his book and then Batman drafted him in the latest JLA) and that could be cool, but I like BB on his own more than I do when he's with the Teen Titans. Guest appearances are cool, but I like the characters in his book.

Yeah, Blue Beetle on the Teen Titans seems like a great choice. He has awesome chemistry with every member, especially Ravager. I hope something brews there. ;)

I think that both of them have raised hero names that weren't respected

altough I have a feeling that old BB will come back

You really think so? I like his interactions in his own book so much more than the stuff with the Titans.
