@Rixec: I've read every issue of the New 52 up until #12, including Blue Beetle (I don't have anything against Zero Month, it's just that I have some catching up to do with some other series I follow). All I'm saying is this: even if I put myself into the teenage mindset, the current Blue Beetle volume is very lacking on many departments that would make it an immersive read. I like Reyes as a character and there is nothing wrong with him here, but damn, the supporting cast just sucks... Both Paco and Brenda are like cardboard cut-outs from a high school sitcom. The plotting is fine, but the overall story and the motives/conflicts are quite shallow, and not only that, the plotline regarding the origin of the Scarab has basically landed at DC's cosmic line, because, let's be honest, they introduced it too early. What am I getting at is, the book had and still has potential, but somehow it cannot rise above the nuances that makes it generic. The main problem probably is that we are 12 issues in, and Reyes still wants to get rid off the scarab instead of embrace it and being a hero. It's like reading twelve issues of Spider-Man whose main goal is to revert the emblemic spider-bite.
Dick - the embodiment of the idea of a 'sidekick', Killing Dick would be like ripping up the United States Constitution, it'd destroy the entire foundation of sidekicks in general, he was not only the first Superhero sidekick in comics, but he was one of the first to claim his own persona.
He's the only untouchable Robin. If the DCnU is anything like the previous universe, Dick Grayson has connections with every hero, and if he were to die, it would impact every character possibly greater than Superman's death affected anyone.
