Isn't the new Blue Beetle just a kid? Unless he is substantially more powerful than Marvel's heavier hitters, I highly doubt he'll be able to beat an opponent as powerful, intelligent and experienced as Iron Man.

The Beetle is supposedly very powerful and also very violent. Jamie has to hold it back from doing things that will kill people or destroy the country when fighting enemies that don't need that level of force. Keep in mind, the Beetle was designed to subjugate planets (which would include defeating its champions) for its creators all by itself.

I think it's more a question of if Iron Man can take over the Beetle or not. He's taken over alien robots before (WWH) but it was hard, it took time, and they could resist subsequent attempts, (and they weren't even as sentient or advanced as the Beetle appears to be) so that leads me to believe that he couldn't (or that it would be easier/faster) for him to fight it physically.

The limits and capabilities of the Beetle are unknown so determining the outcome of a physical battle is difficult.

So, there's a large possibility that Jamie could win? Nice.

Hmmm. What degree of control does Jamie have over his powers? I'm still inclined toward Iron Man; the only way I see him losing this is in an upset victory where he doesn't take Jamie seriously and gets taken by surprise. If he starts the fight treating Jamie as a serious threat, I think his greater intelligence and experience will prevail.

The armor does what Jamie says in most circumstances. Exceptions: When GLs are present the armor will attack (Jamie can calm it down though) and also causes GLs to attack full on (I think it says something that the Beetle can fight against GLs), when other Reach technology is present, the armor won't attack it (Jamie can override this), and the armor won't hurt plant life (Jamie can override this as well). The armor is more like a partner than armor, so it's not much like Iron Man's suit, but for the most part the armor does what Jamie says. The positive side of the armor having a mind of its own is that its smarter than Jamie and has all the knowledge its creators have of space, alien races, sciences, technology, magic, etc. Jamie may not be smart but the armor can tell him whatever he needs to know. If Jamie doesn't know how to deal with a threat, the armor can tell him or just act, but Jamie's a clever kid so he does ok on his own. Also, Jamie is the only thing holding the armor back from just going crazy and killing everything around him with planet scarring weaponry. That technology is accessible to him (the armor wants him to use it) but Jamie won't unless it's necessary, and it hasn't been yet. That enough info on the kind of control Jamie has?

Yeah, that seems pretty comprehensive. :) This would be an interesting fight, Jamie could pull off a nice underdog victory (and it would so satisfying to see Iron Man get stomped by a youngster).

If Jamie were to win, I wouldn't consider it an underdog victory. Without knowing enough of his ability level to determine who would win, it would seem that the chances of the Beetle outstripping the capabilities of Iron Man's armor seems very high. A weapon that was made to take over planets on its own would seem to be a little bit out of Iron Man's league.

#11 Posted by Alexander Anderson (4030 posts) - - Show Bio

By underdog I meant that Jamie's just a kid who's new to being a superhero, so he wouldn't be expected to win against a veteran like Iron Man.

Jaime has proven himself, his tecnology is in my opinion way ahead of Ironman's

He may be a kid, but the scarab is very inteligent and guides him perfectly

It also has a lot of power that he has showed. Recently he beated future Bart Allen without any problem.

BB wins

That wasn't a real fight, though.

Didn't he trick Bart into touching an electric field or something?

he just did a energy cacoon, the fact that bart tried to enter it by vibrating is his fault.

his armor are way ahead than ironman, and his scarab gives him info and things needed to defeat enemies

What kind of an energy cocoon hurts phased people?

Would it have hurt him if he wasn't phasing?

Why can't an energy cocoon hurt him? It wasn't in a solid state, so maybe it scrambled his molecules or something when he tried. If he wasn't phasing, he would probably get the same result.

Oh and I got this from wiki. Its totally makes me think beetle now lol

In Blue Beetle #21, Jaime alludes to weapons powerful enough to harm even the Spectre, one of DC's more powerful characters. Jaime says that the scarab "offered him option after option after option each more jacked up then the last, real W.M.D. type stuff". Jaime's refusal to use lethal force seems to be the only thing keeping these weapons from coming into play.

#24 Posted by Zoom (14668 posts) - - Show Bio

There you go.

Something tells me that wasn't an energy cocoon, though.

I mean, Bart seemed to think that if it was an energy cocoon that he'd be able to just phase through it.

Either TT Bart is an incredible idiot or there's more to that cocoon.

The only stuff with the new Blue Beetle I've read are the last few issues of Titans, so I didn't know what the heck it was.

If Blue Beetle can hurt the Spectre (and I'm not sure I believe he can considering how powerful the Spectre is) then he'll beat Iron Man for sure.

Maybe he'll replace Supergirl. The Titans don't need 3 super fast super strong flying chicks.

Keep in mind, it gave him options, but there's no clue how successful they'd be. He asked the armor to give him something nonlethal that would stop the Spectre and it shot an anti-magic bubble meant to contain him but it that didn't do much. There's no telling how effective anything else might be even if it were meant to be lethal. I have no doubt that it would be amazingly destructive, but there's nothing to say that it could stop the Spectre. On top of that, the Spectre paralyzed him just by touching him and the armor couldn't do anything about it.

I remember that the original idea was that Supergirl joined and BB only made appearances

but obviosuly BB will stay since he is still a member in feb of 08

and on teen titans #55, the summary says that one titan leaves forever, and there are mentioned as members: Robin, Wonder Girl, Blue Beetle, Kid Devil and Ravager

maybe the decision was reversed, and supergirl leaves instead of BB
