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!

this post has been up for an hour and no responses?

Bianca Reyes is awesome and I really hope they don't decide on rebooting Jaime with a secret identity.

To be honest, I don't know much about Blue Beetle (everything I've read and heard suggests I should rectify that, like, yesterday but I just can't find the time) but man, I seriously hope that blonde douchebag gets what's coming to him.

And oh yes, if this is anything to go by, Mama Blue Beetle is made of seven shades of win.

Not only Mrs. Reyes, but the rest of the clan are all made of solid awesome. Seriously, they're one of my favorite superhero family & friends in all of comics, which is why it's a shame that apparently, Jaime's keeping his identity a secret from his family & friends. (If a recent interview with Tony Bedard, the guy who's writing the DCnU Beetle, is to be believed.)

I can learn to accept Barbara Gordon as Batgirl. I can bend my brain around an assembly line of (male) Robins. I can even handle Wonder Woman going back to her old status quo bathing suit from the FORTIES outfit. These are things I can live with. I might not be fully on board with them, but they're not the end of the world.

But I will say this:


That's all.

Has Blue Beetle's mom always been that young and hot looking?

Love Jaime's whole family so so much!

So hoping that the new writer won't screw them up and turn them into more clueless parents who bitch at their super-hero son because they don't realize he just saved the world instead of mowing the lawn. One sad-sack hero with a secret identity that makes everyone think he's a terminally late loser is enough. *cough peter parker cough*

The article comments do not make me optimistic in that regard. :(

The entire Reyes family is made of awesome. There better be more of this in the dcnu, or I will be very pissed. That is all. Except for this: that whispering panel, second last on the first page, is pure adorableness.
