183. Blue Beetle
Here we have fan favorite Blue Beetle. The last of the Ditko creations this week that were carried over from his days at the now defunct Charlton Comics.
The brilliance of Steve Ditko knows no bounds!
You need proof? Let's take a look at the most acclaimed work of Alan Moore & Dave Gibbons: the Watchmen. Most of the main characters were based (at least partially) on Ditko's Charlton Comics creations.
Rorschach= a mix of the Question and Mr. A.
Doctor Manhattan= Captain Atom.
Silk Spectre= Nightshade.
Nite Owl= our very own Blue Beetle.
Steve Ditko= Creative Genius!
