An encouraging aspect of DC Rebirth is that the company seems to once again realizing that they don't have to jettison existing characters to introduce legacy heroes. Indeed it seems like we will be seeing some of them working side by side. Ted Kord is back and looks to be sharing adventures with Jaime Reyes, the new Blue Beetle. Ryan Choi is back as well, summoned by none other than Ray Palmer. I wouldn't mind slight name changes on the newer versions though, if both heroes are going to be in operation. Let Ted Be Blue Beetle and maybe Jaime could be renamed Scarab or something? Likewise, Ryan Choi could call himself Micron to avoid confusion in their shared tales. Thant's a minor nitpick though, I am just glad all of these guys are back in action.
