The Blue Beetle's Enemies, Part the Tri: The Calculator (a henchman's story) and Chronos V1
after going up against the arson-fueled vengeance of Firefist, dealing with the return of the Madmen and watching Doctor Alchemy destroy himself, Ted next found both himself and the Question tangling with the Muse, a gun-having crazypants with a plan to unite the city's warriors-esque gangs under his command to take on the current criminal syndicate in charge.

... however, as most of the good stuff from that's already been covered, I'll skip him. If you want a full account of how it all goes down, a quick google'll avail you.

But on to the next... villain, so to speak.  )

The Blue Beetle's Enemies, Part the Next: Doctor Alchemy and the Madmen!
(yeah, Doctor Alchemy's a Flash villain. Not all of his villains are original to the series, but they fight Beetle nonetheless.)

so, after the Incendiary Man's vanishing (complete with a "We found no body in the fire", leaving him open to a return, which he apparently pulls off as a kill-people-with-fire-for-hire guy at a time down the road), it's time for one of the several foreshadowings laid out over the past two issues to pay off.

Foreshadowings like this one, from Blue Beetle #2...  )

The Blue Beetle's Enemies, Part the First: Firefist, the Incendiary Man!
Ted fought more than the comic results of his own actions and the Madmen. Who knew, eh?

And he fought some rather interesting enemies too.

But heck, so did Dan Garrett...  )

It's Not About The Answers: Behind The Mask Of Vic Sage, pt 4

Intermission: Hangin' with Beetle (pt 2)
With special bonus: Vic's Cool Quota Runs A Surplus

Tonight we're looking at Blue Beetle v6 #'s 5-7, by Len Wein and Paris Cullins. There's a lot of crazy meta stuff surrounding this arc. It ends two months before Ted plays his part in the Legends cross-over, which lead to JLI, so he hasn't really fostered any relationships with DC natives yet, so they apparently decided to reinforce his friendship with a fellow Charlton immigrant first. Also, and really, really interestingly, Vic's guest spot in BB #'s 4-7 (#4, if you'll remember, we glanced at in our last post) were released concurrently with the first four issues of Watchmen. It's makes me curious as to whether this arc happened to further establish Vic and Ted's partnership in order to legitimatize the homage of Rorschach and Nite Owl. It's a lot to think about.

It's Not About The Answers: Behind The Mask Of Vic Sage, pt 3

Intermission: Hangin' With Beetle (pt 1)
with special bonus: Vic Walks In Two Worlds

In 1981, after thirteen years of surviving on licensed comics, Charlton was falling apart. A new volume of Charlton Bullseye was launched to feature new talent and hopefully strike gold, and the first issue went to writer Benjamin Smith and artist Dan Reed, who decided the thing Charlton needed was something it already had.
