I thought 52 pick-up was only a five part arc?

Oh well. At least they're addressing the Blue Beetle thing earlier than expected.

Some fun speculation...

I'm worried for Booster's mental health. I can't bring myself to believe this will end well.

Being worried about Booster's mental health is like being worried about Hal Jordan's ability to commit to a long term relationship.

I am surprised this will be addressed so soon as well. But I am very glad it is! Its nice to see some payoff quickly in comics.

I just realised, the common theme is Booster interfering, but not changing anything. If this theme holds up for the next few issues and during the whole 52 pickup story arc, then one would assume things happen the way they originally happened. But I don't want to see Ted dead, and I feel without some sort of twist at least by this issue, I'd be severely disappointed. Here's my theory.

Most of us think Max Lord was somewhat out of character. What if Boosters (and maybe whoever is in the Supernova costume and whoever he is working for) actions show us more of whats going on?

If I were Booster, I'd go back in time to when Everyman was impersonating Beetle, and swap him with Ted, so that Max Lord kills Everyman, but first, swap Everyman with Max Lord, so that you have Everyman as Max Lord killing Everyman as Blue Beetle, so you have a paradox of total suck.

Seriously though, it makes it tough with Brother Eye being able to use anything he learns against them. Unless Skeets takes out Brother Eye. Still, to save Ted, things have to play out exactly as they did already, but somehow convince everyone that Blue Beetle did die there.

Guess Ted won't be coming back. Damn it.

I think it's not going to work here and then he'll come back a second time with Dan and Jaime.

I can't wait for this issue.

I think Rip is really Booster and that's why he discouraged Booster so much about trying to save Ted, because he already knows it won't work and he doesn't want to relive that pain again.

That's not a bad theory, actually.

I don't think he can ever make Ted not get killed. He will probably have some time to talk to his friend before then head shot but he won't be able to save Ted.

Ted was murdered and his body incinerated. Batman found his goggles with fluids from his pituitary gland. I think his death could have been faked by someone as clever as Rip Hunter.
