While I miss Ted Kord (he didn't need to die!), I really like Jaime Reyes as Blue Beetle. He's got a cool costume, but it's a challenge to draw!
I've been a Blue Beetle fan for a long time! In the late 1970's, I got some Blue Beetle reprints from Charlton, and was able to buy back issues of the 60's comic at that time. I loved those stories, and loved his costume! I was thrilled when AC Comics featured Blue Beetle in an issue of Americomics, and had hoped they would continue those characters.... But, DC got 'em, and I feel that DC has done right by the Charlton heroes. Blue Beetle at Charlton was a legacy hero, and DC has continued that legacy!
