Throughout the title's history, there have been numerous Blue Beetles, including Dan Garrett, Ted Kord and Jaime Reyes.

Been a fan of Blue Beetles when i first saw them in Batman The Brave and The Bold. I've found the legacy elements to be the most interesting part and i'm glad see they include it.
