    ORIGINAL THREAD

    So after nearly 5 years with the original thread, it was finally closed, possibly starting a tradition of annual appreciation threads. Oh well, it had a great run, and since I'm still here 5 years later, time to start another one! So without further ado, here is the 2019 version celebrating the legacy of Blue Beetle!

    What's going on with Blue Beetle in 2019? So far we know:

    -Jaime Reyes will return as a main character for Young Justice: Outsiders.

    -Ted Kord is appearing in the Heroes in Crisis comic.

    -There is a Blue Beetle movie in development, so we'll likely get some updates about it's status this year.

    Jamie is a great character who I hope will get more exposure in the comics for 2019.
    We are the Dora Milaje. We are the daughters of the 18 tribes of Wakanda. We are the teeth of the Panther God. Out of 10,000 years of sweat and bloodshed and battle are we born. We are the women of this ancient land. Deadliest of the species. And our time has come!

    I definitely see Jaime getting a push this year to prep for his movie appearance. I'm a casual fan of the character but I haven't read much of his own stuff. Any suggestions?

    Without a doubt start with his original series in 2006. That one is a cult classic. From there I'd read the back up features he had in Booster Gold vol 2, those were pretty good.

    If you're looking for a team setting, he joins the Teen Titans in volume 3 issue #50 and I'd also recommend Justice League: Generation Lost.

    If you're looking for more recent stuff, then he had a very solid showing in Injustice 2 and the last 5 issues of his Rebirth run were excellent!

    I hate how DC will shelve indefinitely a character whose solo gets cancelled. If they have any hope of building their mid tier characters up they need to keep them prominent in the DCU. Jaime really should be a regular member of the Teen Titans of the new Young Justice book. Iíve always wanted to see him become the junior member of the Justice League. He could definitely play the Spider-Man role from the Avengers films.

    Tedís fan base was mostly created due to his time in JLI. Adding a character to a team book allows them to form friendships and remain in the public eye.

    That's very true, unfortunately DC has moved from the business of building their characters to focusing on maintaining their "big names". Team books, like the Outsiders, have always been good for giving smaller characters places to grow but iunno why DC doesn't wanna do that anymore.

    If you were putting together a team with Jaime, which team would you pick (or make up) and what would that roster look like?

    For those who want a retrospective history of Blue Beetle check out of Linkara's Blue Skying if you haven't. It's three parts if you have the time.

    For me, I've been pushing to see him with a revamped Young Justice, featuring Tim, Cassie, Bart, Conner plus Virgil and Traci. But that's just me.

    Now I want to see him with the Justice League proper, interacting with the big dogs (ala Spider-Man over at Marvel). I'd make him and Firestorm join the JL as the youngsters learning the ropes.

    Sad they did another Thread closing purge, especially so soon after the last one. This time, it seems just the Appreciation Threads got locked.

    Anyway, here's hoping Jaime will be back on the Comics radar, especially in anticipation for his movie.

    I first know of Blue Beetle from Infinite Crisis. Young Jamie just became Blue Beetle and he immediately has to fly into a Crisis with Batman. Roughest Tutorial.

    Yes, I actually only found out about Ted after that. I kinda just jumped in because it's in a bargain bin. I was buying it for the art.

    I just start Jaime's 2006 series and I'm starting to see the cult appeal. I'm on issue #8 and I'm really digging it so far!

    What story arc (particular issues/series if they come to you) would you guys think DC could adapted for or influence the movie?
