Oh god oh god! Peer pressure! a;ldjflakdhb;aowwovnq~!
Anyway, it's odd that Beast Boy would blame getting the disease instead of him not being able to save his parents as a child. It always seemed like that was a big part of why he was a hero- a sort of guilt complex, if you will.
Also, this is all very manzai. I take it you read a lot of manga or watch a lot of anime?
Well, in Beast Boys and Girls, when the villainous Zookeeper (real name: Sam Register [the SAME name as the writer of the TT show, heh]) acted as a carrier for sakutia (he was after Beast Boy, since Gar was the only one known to survive sakutia without disasterous side-effects and he wanted the same, since he himself experimented on a young Gar when the boy still lived in Africa, much to his parents' disagreement--since this was their son, not a "pet project", if you will--and wound up infected by sakutia himself), Beast Boy reverted back to blue-eyed blond Gar Logan, whilst all the neighborhood children wound up with the strain of sakutia that turned him green and gave him his ability to shapeshift. Even when Sam admitted that he, and not Gar, was the one who spread the disease--since Sam posed as a fake doctor and took a sample of Gar's DNA to administer sakutia to the children, which thereby turned Gar back into the powerless state he was before contracting the disease--Gar blamed himself, since it was his strain affecting the children instead of Sam's purple strain. To stop Sam from infecting more innocent people with his strain of sakutia, Gar re-infected himself, making the disease a permenant part of him (that is, until the DC Universe reset/retconned itself, erasing all previous history from the existing continuity).
Yes it does. It was a prime example of Beast Boy's blaming himself for the sakutia disease that made him into Beast Boy. He also blames his lack of ability to fully master his newfound parents as the result of his not being able to save his parents from that ill-fated boating accident, for after all, he did somehow turn into a mongoose to protect mom Marie from a deadly snake, but that was pure coincidence, because Beast Boy didn't know what he was doing, since he was, after all, only four or so years old when he was bitten and contracted the sakutia disease. Beast Boy being immune to the disease as the first person to not die from it is the result of the cure merging with the sakutia when he transfomed from blue-eyed blond Gar Logan into green-skinnned shapeshifter Beast Boy. Having his child (albeit an OC) swipe the cure before it could merge with his strain of sakutia would make Beast Boy as good as dead and therefore, any potential future children would cease to exist.
If that's what you were going for, it wasn't quite clear. Anyhow, I'm looking at the comic now and the line that would imply any guilt is as follows: "There are thousands of sick kids out there, Vic. And they're all going to die because of me...?" It doesn't indicate whether he blames himself in respect to his parents or to acquiring the disease or even if he's ultimately settled into blaming himself at all. Anyhow, it's tangentially related at best.
His parents really have nothing to do with his getting the disease. Sure, he was in the African jungles with them while they did their studies, but that's not neccessarily relevant. The disease itself is responsible for what happened to him, because sakutia's nickname was "the green monkey virus", seeing as the sole creature that bore the disease was a green monkey and a young Gar was bitten by one and thereby, infected with the fatal-to-humans disease. Yes, his parents administered tests to bond his human DNA with that of animals--because only animals can survive sakutia--but it was the disease itself merging with their tests that gave him his green skin (disease) and shapeshifting powers (tests). In other words, had he not gotten the disease, he wouldn't have become Beast Boy and wouldn't have joined the Titans, and therefore, wouldn't have met Raven, let alone marry her and sire her offspring. That line does indicate that he, at least, does blame himself (and by extension, his getting the disease, for had he not gotten it, the events that occurred in his life following getting the disease wouldn't have happened) for what's happened to the kids, since it was his strain that infected them and he felt responsible for it, hence why he re-infected himself once again, thereby making sure the cure to sakutia was lost forever (because once you re-infect yourself with sakutia, you can never be cured of it again, a fact that The Zookeeper angrily points out when he discovers that Beast Boy had ruined not only Beast Boy's own chances of being permenantly cured, but also ruined The Zookeeper own chances of being cured, which was why he was after Beast Boy in the first place).
His parents really have nothing to do with his getting the disease
Yeah, that's pretty much what I've been saying. Tangentially related.
As for the example itself, that question mark is very important. He doesn't necessarily blame himself. He's literally asking himself if he should feel guilty. There was never a follow up to indicate what he decided, either.
Regardless, if he did feel guilty, there are a myriad of things that he could actually feel guilty about that aren't his acquisition of the disease. For instance, not having regular tests done or, again, not saving his parents. That line is highly unclear.
