YOU WANTED HIM -- YOU GOT HIM! Blue Beetle House Ad From 1986

Just because it's what I'm re-reading now and I miss Ted Kord/the fun/the costume/the creative team of this book.

*Sigh* anyone got a TARDIS handy? Or a giant beetle shaped aircraft?


  1. Ah, the good ol' days huh?

    Other than trying to show the world that DC's really trying to be more diverse, there's really no good reason Ted Kord shouldn't be the Blue Beetle. And now that Infinite Crisis might not be in continuity again, Didio/DC dropped the ball on bringing him back. At least let him mentor the new BB, if he's not going to be the BB. Idiots.

  2. Then was mind bending, now is mind blowing. Times are more dangerous :)

  3. You know, I was having a Marvel vs. DCU conversation with someone the other day, and they told me to come up with one awesome DC character who doesn't have a better counterpart in Marvel, and I said...Blue Beetle. And that shut them up. And yes, Dan, I have a TARDIS, but I lost the key and it's stuck on Chevy Impala.

  4. Thanks for the comments guys!!

    Dale I think there could easily be two Blue Beetles too. It would be quite cool to have them have an inner rivalry over what's more useful, technology and science or mystical doohickies. Actually I think that would be pretty cool.

    Random mine is stuck to but in the shape of a Holden - do you guys even have Holden's up north? It makes the same sound, but without the light effects :D

    I love conversations like that. Especially when you create a third universe from all the indie stars and other publishers like Judge Dredd, Vampirella, and XO Manowar and see how that affects the outcome.
