Blue Beetle (2023)

In a remote frozen tundra, Kord Industries manages to locate an artifact known as the Scarab. Meanwhile, Jaime Reyes returns to his hometown Palmera City after graduating college and learns that his family will be losing their home due to financial difficulties. Jaime’s sister Milagro manages to get the two of them a job working at the mansion of Kord Industries’ CEO, Victoria Kord. However, both are fired after Jaime steps in to stop a confrontation between Victoria and her niece Jenny. Jenny tells Jaime to meet her at Kord Tower the next day to discuss a job opportunity.

The next day, Jenny finds that Victoria is using the Scarab for her OMAC (One Man Army Corps) projects. She steals the Scarab and avoids security by giving it to Jaime hidden inside a to-go burger box. At home, the Reyes family convinces Jaime to open the box. When Jaime touches the Scarab, it activates and fuses with him, creating an armored suit. Jaime later goes to find Jenny for answers, and rescues her from Victoria’s armed forces. Jenny tells Jaime that the Scarab is an ancient sentient weapon and that it has willingly chosen Jaime as its host. With the help of Jaime’s uncle Rudy, Jaime and Jenny are able to break into Kord Tower and grab a smartwatch that once belonged to Jenny’s father Ted but are attacked by Victoria’s bodyguard, Ignacio Carapax, who has an OMAC prototype infused in his body. The Scarab, revealed to be named Khaji-Da, temporarily takes over Jaime’s body and battles Carapax. Rudy and Jenny help incapacitate Carapax, then escape with Jaime to Jenny’s childhood home.
