Happy Mother's Day!

I don't usually post on Sunday's, but what the heck, this is a special occasion. I've got MY kids all trying to buy my love, which is sweet indeed.

But I would like to make mention of one of my favorite super hero Mothers. And no, it's not Peggy Louise Gardner.

It's Bianca Reyes.

Jaime Reyes is one of the best new characters to come out of comics in a very long time. Yes, he's a legacy hero, filling the VERY large shoes of Ted Kord as the new Blue Beetle, but dagnabit, I love him. But his family is yet another wonderful creation. They are supportive, they are feisty and they actually know his secret identity.

Bianca is an amazing character. Yes, she worries about him going out and fighting bad guys, but she still backs him up 100%. And woe to any Do-Badder who crosses her awesome path! She even teamed up with Doctor Mid-nite at the hospital where she works, and gave Jaime a hand! And she was able to keep both Guy Gardner AND Peacemaker under control...and that's no small feat.

Their family isn't rich, they don't have access to Beetle caves, or engineering, or weaponry. They do have a computer and the internet, and some of Jaime's friends are...connnected. But they work, they take care of their house, they pay taxes and they raise their kids.

And that's just nice.

Hell to the nth YES. Best superhero family & circle of friends ever? I think so!


Even Guy Gardner knows when he's out-awesomed!

Happy Mother's Day! :-D Mighty Mite isn't yet old enough to try buying my affections, but she is awfully darned cute when she runs up to me asking for a diaper change: "Mommy! Butt stinky!" ;-)

LOVE the Reyes family. I was one of the Kord fans that was just ready to hate the new Blue Beetle, but Jaime and his supporting cast won me over with his first issue. His relationship with his parents is no small part of that.

And just think... you'll be able to make an almost identical post on Father's Day since Jaime's dad is filled with awesome too!

And Happy Mother's Day to you, Sea! Ah, those halcyon days of yore, when I had THREE in diapers at the same time.

It's a darned good thing that Mighty Mite is so cute.

Mac, Bianca Reyes is indeed, quite quite awesome.

Moriarty, Jaime's Dad is equally awesome. So is Milagro. Heck, I even like his Abuela. The whole FAMILY is mindboggling.

There are some rumors about Milagro becoming a green lantern when she grows up.
But, for now, I'll consider myself happy if she doesn't die some horrible death.(Seriously, DC, What The Fridges?!)
