Tony Bedard ties both of his DCU books together as Kyle Rayner, Bleez and Glomulous from Green Lantern: New Guardians pop over for a visit. Well, I say visit, it’s more like a traditional fight/realise they’re both heroes/team-up deal, but it was still good stuff, Kyle is one of my favourite characters so I really enjoyed seeing him show up here and teach Jaime a few hints about how to be a superhero, such as don’t reveal your identity. I also liked that the conflict between the Reach and the Green Lanterns is still here, and as I’ve said before, the subtle change where it’s the Scarab that freaks out rather than the power ring is a good one. It was interesting to see that the ‘Fridging’ is still a part of continuity post-reboot, I wonder if Bedard will get in trouble for that? Even though it was like 15 years ago, it’s still one of the most egregious examples of women being mistreated in comics, hell, it’s given it’s name to it. Marcio Takara’s art was good, he’s come from nowhere to really impress me. The subplots of this title kind of took a back-seat this issue, with both Jaime’s family and Brenda only getting a page, but though they’re moving in subtle increments, I like where they’re going, I reckon Jaime’s family will figure out he’s Blue Beetle on their own.

You should email your pal Gail Simone about that scene ... :twisted:
after all, she coined that term!

So, Nu Beetle is turned on by copious amounts of blood spewing out of a woman's mouth.
That would be an Erection Rejection in most hetero men, despite the straddling.
