The Ted Kord version of Blue Beetle returns to the DC Universe in Blue Beetle, a new series from writer Keith Giffen and artist Scott Kolins.
"This is Jaime Reyes, with his mentor Ted Kord," Johns told the audience at WonderCon today when the series was announced.
No other details were revealed. One of the key refrains of the Rebirth announcements thus far has been that DC wanted to restore the idea of "legacy" to the DC Universe.
The monthly series, launching in September, will be part of DC's wide-reaching Rebirth initiative.
