Behind the scenes

  • In the DC comics Blue Beetle is a legacy name of several superheroes. The version depicted in the game is Jaime Reyes.
  • This is not the first time Arrow is adapting several aspects of Blue Beetle as Ray Palmer was originally written to be Ted Kord, the second Blue Beetle from the comics. While idea was scrapped and Kord was replaced with Palmer, Kord Industries and Kord Enterprises are still frequently seen in the series.
    • The fact that Felicity Smoak is playing as Blue Beetle might be a reference to the fact that she dated Ray Palmer, who was originally supposed to be Ted Kord, the Blue Beetle. However, this specific Blue Beetle depicted in the game is Jaime Reyes rather than Kord.
