Probably Spoilers, NSFW: Violence against women
Last time in Blue Beetle! Jaime continued to get dicked around by his DCnU scarab, which stabbed his friend Paco to death to hide his secret identity! To save his friend, Reyes forces the reluctant KhajiDa to heal Pacco with a technobug thing from the suit! Unfortunately although this cures Paco of his violent impalement, it also turned him into a red/black version of Jaime's suit! Also, he's evil now!

Now we're back with Jaime and Pacco meet with the third member of the BFF trio, Brenda, comes into the fray!


...God I hate the reboot of this series.

I think you're underestimating the reader's ability to take things in context. What Jaime did to Brenda was probably not the optimum solution, but it was the only one a inexperienced teenager desperate to save his friend's life could come up with at the moment. It, in no way or form, condones abuse.

Jaime hitting her is shown to be a heroic act to protect her from something else. Bedard chose to write that scene and to frame it in those terms. You can try to justify it how you like, but the scene is explicit: back handing Brenda is a heroic act and Bedard wrote it.

It's more of lesser of two evils in an awful decision Jaime's thrust in. It's not "heroic" even Jaime doesn't want to do it.

It's not shown to be "heroic", it's shown to be "pragmatic", a very different thing, and the story makes that clear.
