DCAU: Animated Blue Beetle

A series highly acclaimed in the transition of comics to other media is undoubtedly the Justice League Unlimited franchise. While the series never found room to spotlight Ted Cord aka the Blue Beetle, the cartoon-to-comic transition did afford an appearance by this classic character alongside his latter-day partner, Booster Gold.

Truly, Beetle was the most successful of all the assimilated properties from Charlton, until DC tragically used him as fodder for a mega-event a few years ago. Here's hoping that the revolving door of "comic book deaths" applies with this classic character. To bad the Mighty MLJ creations haven't had a spin in this wonderful televised tapestry.
