Blue Beetle, also known as Jaime Reyes, is a DC Superhero who bonded with Dan Garrett’s Scarab. It is an alien entity that is designed to bond with a living being. There are three Blue Beetles in the DC Comics, Dan Garrett, Ted Kord, and Jamie Reyes. The scarab was passed on to Jamie Reyes, who is the current Blue Beetle. Jamie Reyes’s Blue Beetle also appeared in the animated series “Young Justice” and in the animated movie “Justice League vs Teen Titans”. The scarab provides alien armor and special abilities. However, the scarab is an alien entity, so it can think, talk, and even take over.
