There are a few key moments in "Blue Beetle" that see DC's latest big-screen hero creep into familiar "Spider-Man" territory,
And it's not the only big franchise it's taking notes from.
For the Force-sensitive among us, you may notice some strong similarities between the big bad of "Blue Beetle" and another from a galaxy far, far away.
Jaime (Xolo Maridueña) may not be at the forefront of a massive rebellion,
But she's certainly got the same struggles as Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), in the form of the evil and corrupt Victoria Kord (Susan Sarandon).
as well as his nearly silent but violent henchman, Conrad Carapax (Raúl Trujillo).
These two feel a lot like "Blue Beetle" versions of Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader,
albeit with a very brief partnership that quickly went south.
Blue Beetle is DC's answer to villainous Darth Vader (sort of)
