Blue Beetle #3 (Worst day ever Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sat Nov 19, 2011 7:36 am

A satisfying origin for Jaime Reyes, and one that for me, works a lot better than his old one, because it wasn’t reliant on a shitty event like Infinite Crisis. I liked the interaction between Jaime and the ‘Scarab’, that was one of the few things I liked about the character before Generation Lost, and it’s cool to see it continue. It’s also interesting just how many threats Bedard is lining up for Blue Beetle to fight, you’ve got La Dama and her gang, the other Beetles and now Silverback, for a fledgling superhero, that’s going to be a major challenge. I’m also starting to become quite a fan of Ig Guara, especially the way he draws Jaime in his ‘costume’ (Is it a costume? What else can you call it?), that smile on his face on the credits page was great

I agree that Jaime's origin works better post-Flashpoint than it did pre-Flashpoint. Having said that, while I'm still enjoying this and have no intention of dropping it, this volume has a bit of a darker tone that the last volume did. I don't think I'm enjoying this series as much as a result.

No it doesnt. At least not to me anyway. They dumbed down the supporting cast and made Paco a stereotype. The La Dama story has been done. This also is NO where near as fun as the other one was either.

Thanks for ruining another of my favorites DC. :smt011

I'm talking about the bear bones origin of Jaime getting the scarab and not having to worry about continuity coming out of one of DC's Crisis messes. When it comes to what has been done to Jaime's supporting cast in general and Paco specifically -- I agree with you. I'm not all that happy about it either.

I read the first 3 issues of the series today and I am gonna stick with it for now, but I gotta say I enjoyed Jamies original Blue Beetle book a lot more.

So what's the status of the previous Blue Beetles in DCnU?

Don't exist anymore (probably on Earth-2 with Wally).

Agreed. I'm starting to think of the rebooted DCnU as Earth 53 just so I dont snap and kill Didio.

I thought the reason given for rebooting the DCU was to make it less confusing and thereby more approachable to new readers? How are multiple Earths less confusing? It was confusing enough that they got rid of it once already 30 years ago.

And it was supposed to be more reader friendly and not as dark, yet most of these books are incredibly dark. I dont like it one bit.
