Blue Beetle is the legacy name of several super-heroes with different abilities. Dan Garrett is the original version, an archaeologist who discovers and uses the Blue Beetle Scarab to fight crime. His successor was Ted Kord, taking up his mentor's mantle using martial arts and gadgetry when he couldn't unlock the scarab's power, eventually becoming a member of Justice League International, Living Assault Weapons and Super Buddies. Jaime Reyes is the current Beetle, a teenager who uses the scarab to construct an exo-skeleton and joins the Teen Titans. Dan Garret (later revamped as Dan Garrett by Charlton Comics) was created by Charles Nicholas, first appearing in Mystery Men Comics #1. (1939) Ted Kord was created by Steve Ditko, first appearing in Captain Atom #83. (1966) Jaime Reyes was created by Keith Giffen, John Rogers and Cully Hamner, first appearing in Infinite Crisis #3.
