Well it was fun while it lasted Has it really been three years?Â Three years since Infinite Crisis introduced readers to Jaime Reyes, a teenager who picked up a scarab and became the new Blue Beetle?Â In three years weâ€™ve seen Jaime learn to use his powers to fight crime, defeat an alien invasion, land a super hot girlfriend, and build an extended family of those willing to go the distance to help him in his battle against those that would do evil.Â Itâ€™s too bad everything comes crashing down on Jaimeâ€™s head in this final issue. Well, Ted Kord
Sometimes Actions Have Repercussions One of the best stories to come out of the most recent Blue Beetle series featured Jaime Reyes and friends kicking the butts of the alien Reach who were invading the Earth.Â That battle ended when Jaime and his scarab (the Khaji-Da) severed the connection between the Blue Beetle alien technology and the invaders.Â With one issue to go after this one, one might think the tale being told would settle down a bit.
Wham! Bam! A Dead Blue Beetle? This title canâ€™t come out often enough, but sadly, the faster the issues come, the sooner the series ends (thanks DC). With two issues to go, the big showdown between the new Doctor Polaris and Blue Beetle comes to a head. Only… Blue Beetle died last issue.
DONâ€™T LOOK AT THE COVER! Issue #25 concludes a huge story arc that begin two years ago when Jamie Reyes became the latest in a growing list of heroes who would be the Blue Beetle. And oh, what an adventure it has been! From the opening page of issue #1 to the closing page of issue #25, Blue Beetle has proven itself to be one of the best titles coming out of DC. But damn it if the story isnâ€™t potentially ruined by the cover.
Rot in Hell, Reach! Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god! If you thought the last issue of DCâ€™s Blue Beetle rocked your socks off, then you are going to love how everything falls into place in the latest battle with those bastards from the Reach.
