“I got magic armor… dunno how it works. Got a magic rock inside my body… can’t get it out… Went into outer space n’ helped them… but now the superheroes hate me, gonna kill me… I’m the Blue Beetle.

Jaime Reyes was a relatively normal high school student. His father ran a garage, his mother was a paramedic, and his little sister was a brat. Jaime hung out with his two best friends, the mediator between the group. He was a good friend, the kind of person who could let them be themselves, and who could always make things better.

#Jaime’s original run is so damn good #near perfect #remember when they had an entire issue in Spanish and it ended with Jaime flying into the sunset with his abuelita

I feel like we should do a fandom list to remind people of why this book was so good:

  • his immediate family and best friends knew his secret identity and were cool with it
  • his parents weren’t just cool with him being a superhero, they actively supported his superheroics, so long as they didn’t interfere with his schooling
  • the Spanish issue
  • “You learned how to say ‘spawn camper’ in Swedish.”
  • Bianca Reyes: coolest hero mom on the planet
  • Berto is physically disabled, but that doesn’t stop him from grabbing a weapon and joining the fight during the Reach invasion
  • the JLI happen so much
  • “Is. That. A. Giant. Green. Fist.”
  • Milagro and Jaime have believable sibling interactions
  • Traci 13 happens so much
  • “I love you, sweetie. Are you okay?” “Secret identity, mom.”
  • What Would Ted Kord Do?
  • the issue where Brenda ended up on Salvation before it was Salvation

Join in and sing along.
