I haven't read anything with Jaime, i only know him from the cartoons.
I voted Ted because i loved the Countdown to Infinite Crisis and Blue and Gold.

I prefer Jaime, but I still really like Ted.

I find it's Ted Kord that makes that character interesting and not his version of Blue Beetle. I could be wrong but I think most of his fans if they were honest would agree. Jaime Reyes on the other hand is Blue Beetle through and through.

I haven't read much of Kord, admittedly. But I love everything I've seen of Jaime.

Ted Kord :3

Sorry to the Kord fans but I really like Jamie as the Blue Beetle. His inexperience, confusion and comical handling of a powerful alien scarab has appealed to me more than Kord has as a character I'm afraid.

Jaime.I was never really interested into Ted Kord and I never found him as an interesting character while Jaime is amazing.

Well after 26 votes it is very close... But at this stage it looks like Ted is ahead.

Jaime is just a generic spiderman type with a diversity shtick. Ted is funny

TED!

Close call but Jaime.

I can't answer honestly because I can't really recall reading much with Kord. No love for Dan Garret?

#21 Posted by MajorJay (230 posts) - - Show Bio

@doomdoomdoom: i am afraid... i have never read a Dan Garret comic.. sorry

#22 Edited by Liberty (9192 posts) - - Show Bio

You still should have had Dan on the list even if you haven't read him.

I have been told off!, next time

#24 Posted by sagejonathan (2027 posts) - - Show Bio

I haven't read much Ted Kord, but I love almost everything Jaime is in.

Here ya go. Dan had a radio show in 1940. That is before most superheroes even existed. It lasted two seasons and is a real worthwhile thing to check out if you are into comics and their history.

By the way may I friendly suggest you repost this question and delete this one. Here is who i suggest you have

  1. Dan Garret (Garret with one "t"s is the original patrolman wearing a chain mail suit)
  2. Dan Garrett (Garrett with two "t"s is the completely reimagined Charton Blue Beetle that DC uses today. He is the one with superpowers due to the scarab and worked as an archeologist instead of a patrolman.
  3. Ted Kord
  4. Jamie Reyes
