The Scarab is an alien object of unknown origin and purpose that fused to teenager Jaime Reyes' spine and generated an advanced suit of armor capable of forming essentially anything Reyes commands. He took on the code name Blue Beetle. Reyes doesn't control the Scarab fully and maintains something of a partnership with it, often speaking in private conversations with each other. He joined the Teen Titans to learn how to use it effectively. During a training session, the Scarab pulsated after Raven insulted Beast Boy. Blue Beetle informed them Scarab was laughing. Beast Boy told Scarab to butt out and poked it. The Scarab lashed out at Beast Boy with tentacles. Blue Beetle reminded Beast Boy he warned him not to annoy it. The next day, Robin picked a fight with Beetle. Blue Beetle was unable to hold Scarab back and it angrily blasted Robin point blank with a chest cannon. Raven was able to heal him. During a night of mandatory fun at a carnival, Beast Boy discovered Reyes and the Scarab were unable to keep up with him in dance off video game.
