All right first on my to-do list: And opinion post of every Beetle.
First up: Dan Garrett, the original Blue Beetle, aaaanddddd.......he's alright. I mean, OK its not like you can hate him, without Dan we wouldn't have had a legacy to begin with. But his comics are just.....fucking insane. Like really weird. First he's a Green Hornet ripoff, then he took steroids with a bulletproof suit, and had a boring sidekick, then his powers changed every 4 minutes, with X-ray vision and flight and other weirdness. And finally, with Charlton comics, he got the iconic Scarab, after they changed his character to an archeologist, and he finally became the Blue Beetle we all known for. Then he died like 10 minutes later. Shit. Overall, Dan Garrett's character is alright, but for me at least, he was mostly there to pave the way for the REAL iconic Blue Beetle.
