The Blue Beetle

Dan Garret
The first Blue Beetle was Fox Feature Syndicate's Dan Garret (created by Jack Kirby and Joe Simmons). He was a rookie police officer in a blue tuxedo (later he got a bullet proof beetle suit). He was very popular in his time. Later, Charlton Comics revamp him as Dan Garrett. He now had several power (like super strength and vision , flight and the power to make lightning) from a scarab.
Ted Kord
The next Blue Beetle was DC Comics' Ted Kord . Garrett and Kord tried to stop Kord's evil uncle from taking over the world, they stopped him, but Garrett ending dead. So Ted took the name "The Blue Beetle" and Dan's scarab, but had no idea how to use it. So he used Batman like weapons. He eventually died during the "Infinite Crisis".
Jamie Reyes
A year after Kord's death, a boy named Jamie Reyes in El Paso, Texas discover the scarab. During his sleep, the scarab fuse to his spine. When he was in danger the scarab would turn into a super suit with the powers to create weapons (ex: an energy blasters, a sword and shield and a grappling hook),can adapt (ex: make energy discharges from the hands that can stop magic and discharging kryptonite radiation) and talk to Jamie. The suit seems to dislike harming nature.
