As a kid, most of what I knew about superheroes I learned from watching cartoons, and as such most of the superheroes I knew were those that appeared on those shows. “Who’s Who” and “Secret Origins” opened up whole new worlds to me! It was actually “Secret Origins” where I first saw the character that inspired me to write this blog, Ted Kord, the Blue Beetle!** I’ve often heard that the first “James Bond” you experience tends to be your favorite. The first actor you see on “Doctor Who” is “your Doctor”. Well, for me, Roger Moore is “Bond”, Peter Davison is the “Doctor”, and from the moment Ted Kord swears to carry on Dan Garrett’s legacy as the Blue Beetle in “Secret Origins” #2…Ted became my “Blue Beetle”.
For the foreseeable future, I plan to update this blog once a week (Saturdays or Sundays) and explore all things Blue Beetle. I’ll be touching on the comics, TV and animation, toys, even the old time radio show, and that means I’ll be discussing Dan Garrett and Jamie Reyes occasionally, but my primary focus will always slant a little more toward good old Ted…MY Blue Beetle! I'm pretty new at this, so bear with me while I learn the ropes and find my grove.

*Let me say, I love comics and characters from all different publishers, but from the start I have always found myself drawn toward DC more than any other.
**OK, in fairness Rob Kelly and his amazing Aquaman Shrine had something to do with it too
