perletwo: blue beetle (blue beetle - fly)
[personal profile] perletwo posting in [community profile] scans_daily
So, over in the Flashpoint #5 final pages post a mini-discussion of comicbook moms broke out in the comments. Talk naturally turned to the awesomeness of the Reyes clan and Jaime's mom Bianca Reyes in particular. Oh, the usual suspects were trotted out - "Is. That. A giant. Green. FIST?", "*sniffle* Kick their asses." - and I mentioned that time Bianca took down superpowered thugs with an MRI machine. Response? SCANS OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN.

Three pages from Blue Beetle #31. A gang of superpowered teens upset about recent immigration crackdowns fought Blue in #30, and some of the thugs were injured, maybe killed, leaving Blue asking what to do now? Answer: Take them to the hospital. We open on a triage team including Bianca meeting the dropped off thugs at the ER door; their superpowers make getting accurate readings impossible, and from off-side, DR. MID-NITE!!!! of the JSA commands, "Bring them to ME," because as the issue's guest-star he needs a defined role.

But it's not Blue who's going to blow up the hospital...


Beetle and Mid-Nite join the fray and there's a couple pages of fighting, with a side order of innocent bystander injuries.

Sorry Pieter, she's taken. ;-P

Hope you survive the reboot, Bianca! Stay awesome!

True it is a little sad. But it does provide an interesting alternative since Jaime's series kinda had his secret identity be a rather easy thing in his series since his family friends and even some villains like La Dama and the Reach knew Jaime was Beetle. So we can see what his world would've been like if things were a little less goofy and a much more serious thing like an alien invasion would be. Admittedly I'd still like the goofy better but it makes for an interesting look into how it would've been.

it's less the "can't tell too many people his secret ID" that bothers me than the whole "dogpile on the wabbit" feeling I get from "can't catch a break" But time will tell ^.^;;
