Blue Beetle has a black head with some blue detailing on it and a confident expression. He uses the Alien Mosquitoid wings in clear, and has a new armor piece that fits over it and includes the secondary wings on the back. His torso and legs continue the blue-on-black patterning of his armor, and his legs are dual-molded to include his blue boots.
Jaime Reyes is a teenager with Mexican background. One day he found a robot blue scarab and took it home. That night, the scarab awoke and fused itself to Jaime's spine. Jaime soon discovered that the scarab could transform into a robotic armour with a jet pack, laser cannons, maces, shields, swords, hammers, a wormhole generator and other gadgets. Now he uses the armour to fight evil as a member of the Teen Titans.
