The Thing and Blue Beetle

Here's another guy who would fit right in at Ben's poker table. Ted is still deceased in the comics but is one of the harder working dead guys in the business what with flashbacks, time travel stories and his appearance on Batman: The Brave and the Bold. It's nice to see him getting some post-death visibility, but hopefully DC will bring him back for real one of these days.

Apparently, the new Blue Beetle (Jaime Reyes) will be making an upcoming appearance on Smallville this season. That will be interesting to see, I hope it is handled well. I did see some supposed test footage that was floating around, but that may be from a separately proposed project.

Can not believe it's been a quarter century since Ted Kord was in Crisis on Infinite Earths...good times, good times...

It's a shame that he seemed to get the short straw at every turn...Aside from teaming up with Booster Gold.

His title was decent, the L.A.W. mini-series was gawdawful.

Hrmmm...would the Multiverse implode if Blue Beetle met Nite Owl? Would they cancel each other out? Screw Rorshach - give me Nite Owl!
