The Latino Blue Beetle was a blatant DC rip-off of Spider-Man mixed with aliens.

Latino Blue Beetle.. first appearance 2006
Latino Spider-man... first appearance 2011

Who is ripping whom off again?

But yeah, I can see some making that claim of DC ripping Marvel off....

Re: DC's Blue Beetle Feature Film

Hasn't Umberto Gonzalez written the same rumor for the past several years?

Jamie Reyes ripped off Peter Parker's personality, who first premiered in 1962. He was a blatant clone of Spider-Man and his early high school years. Then Marvel decided they needed their own Latino/Black Spider-Man after Disney bought the company.

Re: DC's Blue Beetle Feature Film

I'd rather see Ted Kord's BB, but I'd be more interested in a Booster Gold film.

Re: DC's Blue Beetle Feature Film

Arguing over who stole/ripped-off is silly between Marvel and DC Comics. It's obvious that through the years both have ripped off or taken inspiration from the other. Almost every character has a similar alternative in the other.

Who's arguing? It's a discussion.

Brian Michael Bendis specifically created Miles so Marvel could have a non-white Spider-Man character for future adaptations in other mediums. The writing was on the wall after Disney bought the company. He was supposedly based off Donald Glover playing him, much like Samuel Jackson "inspired" the black Nick Fury. Whenever Bendis creates a new character for Marvel or DC, it's in the hopes that the character gets picked up by Hollywood. It's why his new Superman villain Rogol Zaar looks an awful lot like a Predator rip-off.

DC and Marvel almost instantly copy each other's popular new characters. DC's new character Sideways is a shameless Marvel rip-off.

I hear the new animated movie with Miles is very good.

Sooo...it's opinion based. No one involved with the creation of Latino Blue Beetle has actually said Latino BB is a riff on Latino Spider-man or 60's Peter Parker.

Re: DC's Blue Beetle Feature Film

All teenaged Latino characters are ripped off from Marvel from 2006 on. Got it

Re: DC's Blue Beetle Feature Film

Spider-man 2099 debuted in 1998 so I'm not sure what you guys are talking about in regards to the first Latino Spider-man.

Re: DC's Blue Beetle Feature Film

Man I'm old.

It still weirds me out when I see something like Transformers the Movie (the good one) take place in like 2005. At least 2099 is far out enough that I won't be around to see it be outdated.
