Meanwhile, Kord tries to run away with the scarab’s code, but her niece Jenny steps in to stop her. Using a bubble gum prototype from her dad’s hideout, Jenny crashes the helicopter and destroys the scarab’s code. Just as Carapax gains full power, Jaime’s abilities return. They have a fierce fight, and eventually, Jaime wins. He wants to avenge his father by defeating Carapax for good, but the scarab, Khaji-Da, resists. It shows Jaime that Carapax was tricked by Kord, and his family was killed in a war. Understanding the truth, Jaime chooses not to kill Carapax.

Carapax makes a big decision. He sacrifices himself and also stops Kord. This causes a big explosion that destroys the dangerous scarabs and they both die. Jaime escapes with Jenny and his family’s help. Later, we find out that Jenny is becoming the new boss of Kord. She changes things, deciding to make helpful technology instead of weapons. After Jaime’s dad’s funeral, everyone comes together at their house to remember him. Jenny says she will rebuild their home. Before leaving, Jenny and Jaime kiss and fly to her dad’s secret place.

Blue Beetle treats its audience to a double delight with not one, but two post-credit scenes that add an extra layer of intrigue to the cinematic experience. The first of these scenes unfolds shortly after the main credits have concluded, pulling us back into the enigmatic world of Ted Kord’s subterranean lair. The scene comes alive as a symphony of computer monitors suddenly flickers to life within the deserted base. A compelling male voice resonates through the airwaves, a voice that proclaims itself as Ted Kord. The shock of his existence reverberates, challenging the assumption of his demise.

With a cryptic message that ignites curiosity, Ted instructs any who hears his transmission to contact his daughter, Victoria. The camera refrains from revealing Ted’s visage or whereabouts, casting a shadow of mystery that hints at his potential entanglement within another dimension. In the second scene after the credits, something fun happens. The screen changes to show a short part from an old Mexican TV show called El Chapulin Colorado. This show was mentioned before in the movie. It’s like a little surprise hidden in the movie.
