Bumblebee (G2) Gallery Relationships Costumes

[[File:"Mayhem in the Multiverse"|64px]] I know we have different ideas of what being a superhero means, and honestly, that's what makes us... made us, such a good team. But what made us a great team is that we always agreed on the one thing a superhero isn't. Selfish. We've been putting our own issues ahead of the greater good. Whether it's a big shadow only you can see, or questioning the virtue of someone you love, or questioning the virtue in yourself. Or maybe you're just afraid to tell your friends to be quiet and listen when they're making a huge mistake. Well, it's time to get over ourselves.

Relationships

Main Article: Bumblebee (G2)/Relationships

Personality

Karen can be very shy and nervous. She is also awkward and clumsy as shown in her first scene in Sweet Justice where she tripped when walking off the bus. Not to mention the fact she often stumbles and mess up her words around. When she has to she is brave, heroic, and will never try, but will to save the day. Even though she is shy, that doesn't mean she doesn't know how to put bad guys in their place. Despite her shyness, she can be a little aggressive when she's pushed too far. She is also a fan of romance, showing excitement should someone be.

The role that she has in the team of heroines is to be the voice of reason. This has been shown on more than one occasion by motivating her friends; like when she taught Supergirl how to be a hero, Wonder Woman that it's okay not to be perfect, and when she gave her teammates the motivation to come together again with a speech.

As Bumblebee, she wears a custom-made armor to resemble a bumblebee, complete with sky-blue wings attached to it, allowing her to have the ability to fly. She also wears a matching helmet with black antennas attached to it, as well a green visor.

Depiction in the series

Season 1

Karen Beecher is an A+ student at Metropolis High School. In "Sweet Justice", when she was about to walk off the school bus, she tripped and dropped all her equipment which led to her meeting Barbara Gordon, who helped her gather all her equipment. She was very skeptical of being a superhero at first, but after Barbra's incredible speech, she along with her friends were willing to give it another shot. Near the end of part 4 in Sweet Justice, she saved the day by connecting arm to the wire and shutting Lena Luthor's suit down.
