Dan Garrett was the first Blue Beetle.

Dan Garrett was an archaeologist who discovered a mysterious azure scarab while working on a dig in Egypt. The scarab bequeathed to him fantastic abilities and he assumed the costumed guise of the crime fighter known as the Blue Beetle. Garrett was eventually killed in action and succeeded by Ted Kord, the second Blue Beetle.



  • This version of Dan Garrett, including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
  • Not to be confused with the Golden Age Blue Beetle, Dan Garret.
  • The original Dan Garrett Blue Beetle, as published by Charlton Comics, was considerably more powerful than the modern/New Earth version of Dan Garrett.
