So...new folder for post-boot Jaime? The two Dan Garret(t)s have different folders, and according to the writer they'll be mixing things up a bit. The upfront reveal of the Reach and Jaime's parents knowing who Tia Dama is are among them.

I think they deserve their own separate folders/notations. They've turned into quite different beasts.

One's a jovial book with a strong supporting cast. The other is a poor man's Guyver clone without the catharsis of tearing up monsters.

Speak for yourself. I love the New 52's Blue Beetle. In fact the New 52 is what got me into comics. That and Young Justice. I love that show too.

Every comic is someone's first comic. As an avid Godzilla fan, and fan of B-Movies in general, I have no place calling out someone for liking something I think is, or is objectively bad. That said, I hope you read the original Jaime Reyes run to learn why fans are so upset.

Just because I'm new to comics doesn't make my opinion less valid than yours. I just enjoy something you don't like. You probably enjoy something I don't like, but I won't look down you because of that. It's only a piece of fiction. I guess We'll just have to agree to disagree.

Sorry if that's the conclusion you had to draw from my comment, that was not my intent, agree to disagree however, was. 6 of 10, half a dozen of the other.

Though, to be perfectly honest, I must be blunt and correct you on a point: not all opinions are equal. One supported by evidence more thoroughly is the stronger of any two opinions. Objectively. Subjectively, we can like whatever we want. It's when people tell others whether or not something is good that they must back it up.

Edit: I could go on, but I don't want to. I'd rather hear what you have to say about the prior run after you read it, if you get the chance.

Does whatever an Expy can?

Dangermike: There seems to be some question as to whether Silver Age BB is an Expy of Spider-Man, but aside from the bug theme, they really are very different characters. One's a teenager with superpowers who swings on webs, the other's an adult Badass Normal self-made gadgeteer with a hovercraft and zap gun— not very similar at all.
