Kord Industries is a company with an office in El Paso.
One night in July 2015, Jaime Reyes took a shortcut through Kord Industries' parking lot on his way home. As he passed by there was an explosion in the building, killing Ted Kord, the original "Blue Beetle". Jaime found the Scarab that was thrown out by the explosion, which bonded to his spine.
