|~ Blue Beetle on his responsibility with power|
Blue Beetle is a playable character in Injustice 2.
Jaime Reyes sought Batman’s help in learning to use the Scarab, an alien weapon of mass destruction bonded to his spine. Although the Scarab could pose a deadly threat to the entire planet, kindhearted Jaime is determined to protect people, wary of the corruptive influence of great power he witnessed under the Regime.
Being a teenager, Blue Beetle acts much like a TV show and/or comic book fanboy. He geeks out whenever he sees a lot of his opponents (a lot of them being his favorite heroes), but will show no hesitation in fighting them if they don't reciprocate his love for his heroes.
