Justice League: A Better World
“I can do this, I can do this, oops, maybe I can’t do this!”
Ted Kord CEO of Kord Enterprises is also the hero known as Blue Beetle. He is helping the Justice Lords and occasionally teaming up with his friend Booster Gold. Blue Beetle’s main vehicle and gadet is The Bug. Now that he has his corporation back he is thinking about retiring from the superhero activity and continue his work on gadgets. He has no direct relation to the third Blue Beetle 3, Jaime Reyes. Ted Kord uses his own inventions of high tech technology instead of the alien artifact Blue Beetle Scarab like Jaime Reyes.
2009: The inspection was made by Ted Kord who has both the Detective, Gadgetry and Scientist knowledge. The review of all the experiments and gadgets created including the Responsometer the report responds with a series of findigs: “liquefied shapeshifter robots could represent a breakthrough in technology with a unfathomable amount of applications from a tank that can be turn into an ambulance at needed. The random factor is the possibility of a losing control of the artificial intelligence that will be ‘created or mixed’ by the responsomenter ability to adapt to the characteristics of the metal, if it works, of course. Magnus idea of ‘thinking metal’ is a little far fetched for my taste.” Will Magnus was very mad at the Justice Lords intrusion, f@ck@ng nose out of my lab!". Ted Kords report ended with a recommendation to place some safeguards on the AI programming of the Responsomenter to control the robot from afar. This also disgusted Will Magnus who throw Kords from his lab.
