You know what the funny thing is? Initially, I wasn't really interested in the new series, because from what I was seeing it looked like a retread of the old series.

Looking at it now, I think it is possible to make this a good story--the idea of this teenager trying to stop this killing machine living inside him--but what I'm seeing in the scans just isn't being presented as that interesting.

I liked that story better when it was called "Guyver".

Jaime's Blue Beetle has always been a Guyver story.

Oh, I know, but now the tone and style largely match (or are even more screwed up).

Also, I wanted an excuse to use my Guyver icon :)

Guyver at least has the Catharsis of said teenager getting really pissed off and ripping the limbs off monsters.

Agreed, if you weren't aiming for the fun side of it, this would be a perfectly decent "Powers he neither wants nor can contorl properly" scenario, but that's been done before, and it was the overall ensemble which sold the concept last time.

It may possibly be a good story, but it's not really a Blue Beetle story.

I wouldn't even say that--there was definitely a component of the original comic, it just wasn't as explicitly the main plot point as it is now.
