I think the government actually captures Bee, and takes him to a "cloning" or "manufacturing" plant where they will create Stinger. Then, they begin to study Bee and get his weaknesses and put everything good about Bee into Stinger, making Stinger Bee's ultimate arch enemy. Now, something to back myself up here: You all remember when that rally vehicle was chasing '67 Bee somewhere in Texas? (I forgot where this was) Yeah, maybe that's when he gets captured. I couldn't find the picture of him being chased by the Rally Car, so if someone has it, feel free to post if for me!
