    Just threw out the same premise in the Warner Animation answer to the Spider-Verse thread.

    They just need to add to that charming sketch, a pulp-noir era Dan Garret in a fedora and Beetle Goggles, holding his retired police revolver in one hand, and archaeology digs and scarab in the other.



    As is, those three together should be the foundation of a Warner Animation Legacy-Beetle-Verse, CG Cartoon movie:

    Also instead of pulling them from other dimensions, you actually have the alt Beetles in universe, as mentors and allies.
    Obviously the Pupl era Dan Garret who first uncovered the scarab in the Golden Age, has been keeping it out of enemy hands since. And the classic silver-agey Ted Kord, self made hero (has the classic lair, vehicles, gadgets, of his own design, (today a bit out of shape), but in mentoring the new kid rediscovers his own purpose, etc.
    And of course the new kid, whose ultimately got to find his own way into the power and hero-identity, to make it his own.
    As to a distaff female Blue Beetle, i'm surprised DC never churned one up, I'd actually rather they don't, and use someone with their own identity, like one of La Damma's "agents" friend to Jaime, who is unknowingly serving her interest, then discovers her own role (and Identity) as an ally to Blue Beetle.

    AFAIK, they've never done a female Blue Beetle, but the Red Beetle (Sara Butters) that appeared with the JSA for about half-a-dozen issues shortly before Flashpoint was clearly a homage to Kord.

    And Dan's granddaughter Danielle worked with Jaime for a while during the same period.

    Finally teamed again with the classic Charlton Sentinels.
    This panel made me so damn happy. Took me back to first meeting the full Charlton line-up in Crisis on Infinite Earths.

    Looks like they're (finally!) reprinting some of the Charlton Ted Kord/Vic Sage comics under the banner "The Road to Watchmen"...

    I would like to see Jamie join the Young Justice team. I would certainly prefer him to Amethyst or Jenny Hex.

    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!

    You and me both! Hopefully it happens sooner rather than later or Jaime gets another book for wave 2 of Wonder Comics.
    Done with DC. Can't handle the constant whiplash! Time to go on a hiatus!

    sooo.....

    - batgirl one punches beetle. thugs and goons can take hits better than beetle i guess. (now i know how guy feels). a punch that knocks out a person may lead to a concussion, it's a good thing that doesn't happen in comic books.

    - the bugs operating system is tied to beetles consciousness??? why?

    - without the shield, booster is no match for harley? and booster couldn't hit harley back?

    - and let's assume harley was just joking, it's ok for batgirl to risk harley being actually able to kill booster? or batgirl is fine with hurting beetle and booster?

    Man, Batgirl doesn't come off well in this book.

    (I guess we're to assume her relationship with Ted never happened here?).

    well, the issue was.... i'm not sure what exactly happened. my consolation was i got to see ted and booster appear in a book together.
    spoilers:


    just got to say that in spite of the threats, broken nose, and almost getting stabbed to death, beetle and booster were awfully forgiving here.
    end of spoilers
