I've nothing against Ted or his fans, but I much prefer Jaime's Beetle.

I prefer Ted over Jaime, but they have invested way to much in Jaime to bring back Ted at this point. Alas.

It's the new 52.

Jamies story seemed to be "mostly" unaffected.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

It would be way outside Arrows comfort range to introduce an alien armor. A guy with a flying beetle ship on the other hand would fit right in.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

How is the ship explained mostly?

It's not a dirigible (I think the Owl ship in Watchmen was.), and the original at least was built with human technology, so no nth metal.

Oh I don't have any expectation that they'll actually use Jaime's armor and they've already alluded to Ted.

Just one of the many reasons to watch Young Justice then.

Actually, I saw Dig's quip about aliens in the last episode as foreshadowing that the writers do intended to open the gates to DC's celestial pedigree at some points.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

On Lost Girl recently Rachel Skarsten has been wearing some pretty sweet wings.

Again lets mock Smallville.

Daniel Jackson seemed to capture the character fine, but his wings were piss poor.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Beetles ship would be some unused urban pacification(no I never heard that before)ship that Kord industries didnt release. He just added the bug shape.

I missed that comment from Diggle about aliens.

By "mostly," do you mean that what was one of the best comics of the past 20 years was replaced by a much, much lamer version.

If so, I agree.

That being said, while I love Jamie, I am not fully comfortable with Arrow going "Full DCU." I like that it's less about powers and more about street level. I could see a Flash like the early 90's one working, but I'm not eager to see Jamie with his alien scarab. I think Ted Kord would fit much better. It would also add some lightheartedness to the show. I also think Ted and Felicity would make a much better couple than her and Barry.

Of course, I'm still hoping that Felicity meets the father of one half of a certain flame headed DCU hero, since that's how she was introduced in the comics.

That's actually a quick edit on what I originally said which was: "Has either beetle turned up in the DCU yet?"

The thing that pissed me off was getting rid of one year later. I loved it how those stuiupid kids, were suddenly his peers and a love interest because he lost a year form a time jump/stasis whatever...

Of course then he's dating... No? It was Firestorm who was dating the 6 year old.

Yeah, Ghenna was one of those technically six, but mentally older. Not creepy at all.

Then again, this is from the same company that gave you Arisia the couple centuries old under-ager who Hals was dating.
