Translating the Scarab

From issue #5 on, the Scarab's language can be translated using a substitution cipher. Each symbol in the Scarab's language represents a different letter in the English alphabet. The Scarab uses no capital letters or punctuation marks, so these have been put in where applicable. The Scarab does, however, use abbreviations.

There are 22 pages of comic, ignoring the adverts and DC Nation. Panels are counted from the top down, left to right.

  • Page 5, panel 14 - "Wavelength perception."
  • Page 12, panel 1, first part - "Why didn't you know that?"
  • Page 12, panel 1, second part - "That's why we disappeared."
  • Page 13, panel 1, first part - "Warning!"
  • Page 13, panel 1, second part - "Alert! OMAC!"
  • Page 13, panel 2 - "OMAC!"
  • Page 13, panel 4 - "We fight."
  • Page 14, panel 1 - "Damage?"
  • Page 15, panel 3 - "Generates paradox."
  • Page 17, panel 3 - "Alert! OMAC!"
  • Page 18, panel 2 - "Evacuate!"
  • Page 18, panels 3-4 - "No detect.", abbreviation for "They can't detect us."
  • Page 18, panel 4 - "B. Eye trick.", abbreviation for "Brother Eye's trick."
  • Page 18, panels 5-6 - "GLC R enemy. We hide.", abbreviation for "Green Lantern Corps are the enemy. We hide."
  • Page 18, panel 6 - "We hide."
  • Page 19, panel 2 - "We hide. No detect.". See above.


  • Jaime mentions it felt as if it took three months to get to the Batcave, an allusion to All-Star Batman, where the Batmobile takes three issues to get to the Batcave.
  • Booster Gold is off-screen in the flashback, although Jaime mentions his presence.
