"Reaping down upon the underworld to smash ganglands comes a friend of the unfortunate an enemy of criminals, the mysterious all powerful character who is a problem to the police. A crusader for law, in reality Dan Garrett a rookie patrolman loved by everyone but suspected by none of being the Blue Beetle. As the Blue beetle he hides behind a strange mask and a suit of impenetrable blue chain armour flexible as silk but stronger than steel."
In all our cities and even in smaller communities there are unfortunates who are trying to live down a single miss theft. Having served time in jail for some crime generally a first offence they have been paroled released from jail with part of their sentence un-served, given a chance to try again to make useful citizens of themselves. Parolees they are called and one misstep while on parole and they may be returned to jail to serve out the whole of their sentence. Clever but heartless underworlds characters have found the parolee a source of elicit income and as a result a wide system of blackmail has sprung up.
