neither personality he has a low selfesteem makes a joke then puts himself down it's uncanny cuz I was liek him in that way. I never relate with ethnicity which is why I am pissed off they killed Peter Parker for a politically correct hispanic dominican black one. Its the same thing with Ben ryley Spidey I mean after they cleared the whole mess , he was a nice guy and a cool character and they kill him... why cant they have him around? I hate Joe QUesada more than Ralph MAcchio previous editor in chief...
yeah. It often seems forced. I will say though that while I didn't like seeing how Ted came to an end in the DCU, the Jaime character was likeable and it was a good Blue Beetle 3.0 overall. Did you know that there was a live action TV show featuring him in the works at one point?
Ben Reilly was really likeable to me once I read the comics, and I like the Scarlet Spider costume. They got rid of him in a stupid way, too.
I'm not too thrilled with how DC has handled the properties they've aqquired over the years like the Fawcett, Charlton and Quality characters. Especially in recent years. They made a mockery out of the legacy of some of them. And it wouldn't be as bad if there were... eh, at least the Jaime character came from having Max turn into a villain and killing Ted. They could have introduced him without ruining the classic JLI era, though.
Ben Reilly had a silly death... he disintegrated, I think, after Osbourne killed him? He's a perfect copy of a human, humans don't poof into dust when they die lol.
