I much prefer his look with the helmet and goggles to this '80s headband deal.
Me too, Matt! The other look was more mysterious, this is very 80's.
The other look was pretty classy. Like your new masthead, by the way, with the four Blue Beetles thus far. Although to me the Ditko Charlton BB and the DC version seem like very different heroes despite both being Ted Kord in name, given his location changed, his supporting cast changed, his Objectivist philosophy was dropped entirely, and so on.
