Blue Beetle #11 (Booster-Blast Energy Drink Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Mon Jul 23, 2012 1:37 pm

This ain’t your daddy’s Blue & Gold! Whereas the old Booster and Beetle were the best of buds (and even the Pre-Reboot Jaime got along with Booster), this issue features the two of them going at it, and I really think that Bedard nailed the character of Booster Gold here. Underneath all of the bluster and corporate shilling, he’s a very competent hero, and we saw that here as he pretended to want to help Blue Beetle in order to lure him into a trap because he knows all about The Reach because of that whole being-from-the-future thing he has. The Booster in JLI has kind of remained in idiot-mode, so it was good to see the more nuanced character we all came to love. I also liked seeing Jaime finally snap and stop taking all of the crap that the adult heroes have been shoving his way, I’m guessing it will be a little while before the Blue & Gold team is back together, but when it does, it will be more meaningful for these opening battles. Elsewhere, Jaime’s grandma shows up, and she’s a feisty latin stereotype, but more interestingly, she seems to know he’s Blue Beetle, how the heck? Was it that psychic who told her? And then at the end, Director Bones fucks up and turns Paco back into Blood Beetle. I was very surprised by that, I expected that Blood Beetle would be back eventually, but so soon? Hmmm…
