Synopsis
Archaeologist Dan Garrett enters the Egyptian tomb of Kha-Ef-Re and finds a sarcophagus with a blue scarab on it. When he touches it, the spirit of the pharaoh tells him he will have the power of the Blue Beetle when he says the words: Kaji Dha. Several years later, Garrett's former student, Ted Kord, asks for help in stopping his uncle Jarvis who is building an army of destructive robots. After Garrett apparently dies during the fight, Kord vows to carry on as the next Blue Beetle.
