No one likes to see their two favorite people in the whole world fight, but just like peanut butter and chocolate, heroes fighting heroes seems to be the name of the game these days. Which brings us to today’s fateful fisticuffs fretting – Blue Beetle or Booster Gold?
Of all the characters in the DC Universe I’ve said, time and time again, DC need to do a buddy cop movie featuring Booster Gold and Blue Beetle. And, if the Internet rumor is to be believed, it’s happening. Or not…
With Convergence bringing back the Multiverse, I’m looking forward to seeing the adventures of Jaime Reyes again, if only for a brief moment before he’s erased from DC history once again. That sent me on a search for Blue Beetle art, which revealed this wonderful piece by Mehmet Ozen.
Though the Blue Beetle (or, more to the point, one of the Blue Beetles) has been part of the DC Universe since 1986 or so, his storied career dates back to the very beginning of the Golden Age. With everyone’s favorite Beetle, Ted Kord, back in the spotlight in Convergence, it seems like the perfect time to delve into his history and see a little of what makes him so beloved… Strap in, Faithful Spoilerites, it’s time for the origins of the Blue Beetle! Your Major Spoilers (Retro) Review of Blue Beetle #2 awaits!
