  • Notes

    • Silver Age Blue Beetle
      The Silver Age/Charlton Blue Beetle first appeared in Captain Atom #63 (Nov. 1966) under Charlton Comics, and was created by Steve Ditko. A student of the Golden Age Blue Beetle (Dan Garrett, who gets a namecheck here), Ted Kord had no superhuman powers but was a skilled inventor, martial artist, and acrobat. He created the Beetle, a state-of-the-art airship, and a BB gun capable of firing concussive air blasts and a blind light. DC Comics eventually purchased the Charlton line and introduced Blue Beetle and others in Crisis on Infinite Earths. He subsequently had his own short-lived series and was a member of Justice League International. He apparently met his death in Countdown to Final Crisis (March 2005). However, as of the time this episode premiered, subsequent alterations to the time stream may have resulted in an alternate timeline where he still lives.
