Blue Beetle #12 (Bearded Human Spoilers)

It’s time for Blue Beetle Vs Blood Beetle round two! It’s a classic showdown between Red and Blue, between former friends, and it was a fight that ended in a way that actually surprised me. I wasn’t surprised that Jaime won and that Paco was cured, no no, I was surprised by how the fight was resolved by Jaime changing the way the bugsuit thinks, and how he is having the reverse effect on it. A scarab is supposed to take a host and make it evil, part of the reach, but Jaime is teaching the Scarab to be good, to be human. I’m sure it’s going to be slow progress, but it was interesting stuff, and I’m excited to see it play out. It may be a little on the nose and bible-bashy for the Scarab to learn it’s lessons from Jesus, but I guess Blue Beetle is one of comics’ most prominent Hispanic and catholic heroes, so it makes sense. The artwork from Ig Guara continues to be very strong, and I’m looking forward to Jaime’s New York excursion to come to an end so that the book can get back to being more like what we expect from a Jaime Reyes title. I wonder if we’ll see that Peacemaker dude show up? Maybe he’s been replaced by Jaime’s Grandma! She’s the sensational character find of 2012, she should be the new Red Tornado.
