TPToA Podcast 329 – Blue Beetle

Blue Beetle will either be squashed by the weight of it's Universe, or slide underneath it and into our hearts.
Is this the DC universe's thrashing death throes, or the birth of something new and better? nobody is really sure and where it fits into new or old continuity is anyone's guess. But it's fun enough and specifically aimed at a niche audience who will likely really love it.

OK folks, get ready for the movie discussion that has been on the tips of the lips of all concerned for some time now. How deep a cut is too deep and what do we do when Superhero Fatigue has finally hit us like a wrecking ball? with DC’s Blue Beetle, we find ourselves in an uncertain universe, with possibly no history and probably no future. It was elevated from a TV movie to a cinema release almost at the exact same time Batgirl went the other way. The character is lesser known and the focus is niche. So, sadly no matter how entertaining the film is, its up against it from the start!

Dion, Peta and Jill are flying the murderous bug ship for this episode as Quinny is off hanging out with molluscs.

Jaime Reyes suddenly finds himself in possession of an ancient relic of alien biotechnology called the Scarab. When the Scarab chooses Jaime to be its symbiotic host, he’s bestowed with an incredible suit of armor that’s capable of extraordinary and unpredictable powers, forever changing his destiny as he becomes the superhero Blue Beetle.

As always, a massive thanks goes to la familia, our community, who join in with the conversation on the Twitch stream, live and loud each Tuesday (or wednesday) night at 7:30pm AEST. And an especially huge thanks to any of you kind enough to support us by chucking a tip in our jar via Ko-Fi, or subscribing on twitch… every bit helps us deliver the low down on the alien scarab infected warriors we are getting to know.

If you feel so inclined, ask your family for a few dollars and drop us a sub? The more subs we get the more Emotes You get! Every bit of your support helps us to keep the new shitty emotes coming thick and fast.

Don’t fret if you can’t be there for the recording though as you can catch them on Youtube usually later that very night. Make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss them!
