In the Separated at Birth category, we cannot fail but to mention this colorful pair of bugs.
Silver Scarab was a clear homage to Blue Beetle, specifically the early 1960's Dan Garrett version. The parallels are quite clear for both characters:
- An Egyptian connection in their past
- Super strong physique
- Defy gravity flying at great speed
- Projecting energy blasts
In addition, there were clear indications to the former and subsequent Blue Beetles resonating in Hector Hall's silver alias:
- Metallic armor protecting the wearer
- Masterful inventors create their equipments.
