The Premise: Okay, so with Blue Beetle a lot of what could be covered with his family, his powers and his scarab has already been covered, he's out of the teen titans, and is basically an ancillary character at present. This would normally be something crippling to a script, but in actuality an interesting situation is created, where that can all be left behind, or stay as it is, and we can take Blue Beetle on adventures far removed from his comfort zone.
And so here we are, with a character that can be sent anywhere now for all new adventures. So my premise here is to send Jaime to as many unusual locations in a series of done-in-one stories, starting with one of the most unusual environs to throw him into: The bottom of the sea. This page joins the story in progress, with our protagonist in a deep, dark part of the ocean, scanning for the anomaly that had originally set him on his new quest.
Nothing ground-breaking, just unusual and, hopefully, fun.
Blue Beetle is standing on the ocean floor, in a vast empty circle of jagged, tooth-like rocks (which also just happen to be the teeth of a giant fish-robot, hidden under the ground). There are a few exotic fish darting about in the background, all outside of the 'mysterious' circle.
Khaji Da(caption): We are here.
Jaime Reyes: Are you sure? Because if I'm honest here I'm getting a little sick of this wild goose chase!
Blue Beetle is gesturing wildly with his arms and pacing inside the circle as he talks to Khaji Da.
Khaji Da(caption): There are no geese here. This is the correct location, Jaime.
Jaime Reyes: Then show me where!
Close-up on Beetle's face as he looks disgruntled.
Khaji Da(caption): You are standing in the precise co-ordinates.
Jaime Reyes: Well I don't see any--
A very crooked close-up of Jaime looking as everything around him (including the panel?) shakes.
Jaime Reyes: WHA?!
A shakier version of Panel 1, except now the teeth are coming together, revealing the gaping maw of the fish-robot, rising out of the ground to swallow Jaime whole. Jaime is looking around in the centre of this giant mouth, shocked by the sudden reveal.
Jaime Reyes: OH, COME ON! NOT COOL!
