You know Abe Jenkins really needs to find a place to lock these armors up properly. Introduced in Thunderbolts #103 (2006) by Fabian Nicieza and Tom Grummett, Gary Quinn was a student that acquired one of three versions of the Beetle armor. For him it was the MKIII that Leila Davis wore. Alongside Elizabeth Vaughn and Joaquim Robichaux, they formed the Beetles, a short-lived team that was apprehended by the Thunderbolts. They would be taught how to use the three armors by Abner Jenkins, the original Beetle now Mach. They were last seen helping the Thunderbolts to win their contest against the Grandmaster.

This version of Beetle was released as part of Toybiz’s Spider-man line as the “Buzzing Beetle”.

  • Background:
    • After Davis was killed by Graviton, this Beetle armor somehow made it way to the three students at Rutgers University. They would use these to break into a warehouse. Because of this, they gained the attention of the Thunderbolts who apprehended them. Gary Quinn would wear the MKIII armor.
  • Why do you need it for your collection?
    • If you want to build your Beetle team as well as your Thunderbolts team, you may want to get this.
  • Does it need a remake?
    • Maybe. Might work as a BAF,


Below you will find a gallery of suits that still need to be made. I have included what I think are the possibilities of them being made. Note that these are my personal opinions and not facts. Please let me know if I have missed anything.
