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!
With DC and Warner Brothers pushing to develop their cinematic universe in a similar, but totally unique way from Marvel Studios, a lot of titles have been scheduled to take to the silver screen in upcoming years. However, taking a step away from Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, DC Comics has several astounding properties that absolutely deserve to make it to the screen in their own right. I now humbly present you with my Top Five Comic Properties Warner Bros. Needs to Develop for Movies: 5. Jeff Lemire’s Earth One Teen Titans Teen Titans just had a pilot ordered
When something catches on, even for a while, it’s not unusual to see that come back in one form or another. That’s often referred to as a “revival.” Star Trek is a good example of this. It did well on television and movies, so now there’s a new series of films … oh, and comics, too! There have been a few examples of this in comics recently, so I thought I’d discuss them! GOODBYE AGAIN, ‘BATMAN BEYOND’ As a long-time fan of Batman: The Animated Series and its several follow-ups, I was thrilled when DC Comics revived Batman Beyond, a
Remember Blue Beetle? Man, I miss Ted Kord. Fortunately, I found Jerome K. Moore, who has a version of Ted looking his best.
Another week, another set of zero issues from DC Comics. Blue Beetle, a somewhat underappreciated and lesser known DC title, tries its hand at what has been an underwhelming attempt to get more people on board with the New 52. Here is your Major Spoilers review!
Or – “Intergalactic! Planetary! Planetary, Intergalactic!” I’m fascinated by how DC has handled their relaunched properties. Now that the heroes have half a year’s issues or so under their belt, we’re starting to see crossovers occurring between titles that actually MAKE SENSE crossing over.

As DC continues its New 52 reboot, and Earth-2 is coming on line, there is the potential to have multiple characters running around with the same name. Blue Beetle is one of those characters that has fractured fans across the ages – some prefer the Golden Age, others Ted Kord, while still others prefer Jamie Reyes. VOTE!
Or – “Relaunching A Character From The Long-Ago Year 2006…” When DC first announced that they were going to relaunch all their titles with a new #1, I worried that all the same characters were going to come back. Thankfully, the lineup is a bit more diverse (in more ways that one) than the post-Brightest Day offerings, and more importantly, characters like Blue Beetle would get another shot in the limelight. But will it take this time?
