I love how Ted Kord’s notes on the villains really reads like he wrote it. His comments were hilarious. And Jaime’s comment on how not useful they are is great. The message of freedom sent out from Jaime’s scarab apparently inspired other scarabs to turn against authority – and all authority not just the reach. They even want to take down the governments of Earth. So it’s up to Jaime to stop them. Damn I am going to miss this series and I didn’t even realize I would.

So I guess Hector is the Black Beetle – Jaime’s future arch-enemy? What a nice twist. I like that use of continuity. It was really sad to see Nadia die, I really liked her. But I think this was a pretty slam dunk finale for Blue Beetle. Probably the best out of all of the series’s that ended in the last month or so. This series went from being decent to really great and truly created a character that I imagine will be a part of the DC Universe for years to come. Kudos to all of the creators. I am sad to see it go.
