Brave and the Bold. January 23 2009.

Speaking of Batman: The Brave and The Bold...

Here's a sneak-peak at the upcoming eighth episode. Check out that guest-star!!!

"Fall of the Blue Beetle!" guest stars Star Trek: The Next Generation's Wil Wheaton as "Ted Kord / Silver Age Blue Beetle" and airs this Friday, January 23 on Cartoon Network at 8:00 PM.

Blue Beetle traces his legacy back to the original Blue Beetle, to learn why the Scarab has chosen him to share in it's powers and become a super hero. The journey leads him to the dangerous Science Island where he battles legions of robots alongside Batman and learns the truth behind Ted Kord's disappearance.
It starts out "Two Years Ago," and we find out how the Blue Beetle mantle passed from Ted Kord to Jaime Reyes.

Playing Devil's Advocate: I'm wondering if there's going to be continuity within this series. It doesn't really matter, but I have to be difficult.

In the first episode, "Rise of the Blue Beetle," Kanjar Ro is surprised to see Blue Beetle, thinking that he had killed him the last time they met. When he realizes it's someone different in the suit, he feels triumphant that he obviously had killed the previous Beetle.

Now we see that prior to Jaime, as in the comics, Ted Kord was Blue Beetle. Ted's BB doesn't really look much like Jaime's...so why did Kanjar Ro think he was fighting the same person? And since KR doesn't seem to be a part of this episode, which reveals "the truth behind Ted Kord's disappearance..." Are the two stories connected at all? Just makes me wonder.

I don't really care. I just like to stir up trouble. I love this series and they can do anything they want. I just wish they'd throw Wonder Woman fans a bone. I want a B:TBATB Wonder Woman figure!!!


  1. Looks like the best episode yet.

  2. I'll race you to walmart for that Wonder Woman! ;) Thanks for the heads up on the next Batman B&B :)

  3. Get in my way, and I'll knock ya down! ;)

  4. I love this series, too. I think my favorite thing about it so far is the running gag involving Batman's rivalry with Green Arrow. TOO FUNNY.

    The last episide was kind of confusing at first. When Deadman first showed up, why the heck was he wearing that cloak? It made him look like Ryan Sook's drawings of Hal Jordan as the Spectre. Didn't seem necessary.
