I have a friend who is arguably Vibe's biggest fan. He'll be happy to hear this.

Considering it's not the real Vibe, he might not.
I can contest that claim of being Vibe's biggest fan, and I am Not Impressed by this.

Yes, he has, in the DCnU Justice League of America picture and that one-shot back in May. Typical needless DCnU redesign, just because they've GOTTA reinvent the wheel. I've seen enough, thank you.

Dan and the Gang Are Not Ready for the real Vibe.
Tell them to come back when/if they ever are.


That's just a costume, we haven't seen him do anything.

To be honest, he can't be any worse than the original vibe.

That's like saying that Geoff's nU Justice League can't be worse than the original Justice League, when it IS. :roll:

Never mistake "New!" for "Improved!"

We can say that now that we've read it, but if you had said that just based on the new look costumes... that would be crazy.

I'm not a fan of Iron Man's new armour, but I'm not going around saying the whole comic will be shit because of it.

I'm just looking forward to the inevitable outrage at ComicsAlliance when the book is cancelled.

DC hates Latinos!

Marvel isn't changing Tony Stark's personality and history just because they decided to do some idiotic continuity reboot.

DC, on the other hand, has changed ALMOST EVERY character's personality and history just because they decided to do some idiotic continuity reboot.

You really think Vibe is going to be treated any differently than any of the other characters that have had a characterization transplant?? ESPECIALLY when they've previously established that, like many of you, they didn't like the original Vibe??

In this case, they are right to change the character.

The original Justice League was good, so clearly things can be worse than it. Punchy statement is like saying that the NU Justice League can't be worse than Meltzer's run- which would be true as both are shit. The rationale behind your response is flawed (a tv trope link would go here if I gave a shit).

I hardly feel that Vibe's number one fan would have a different character as an avatar...

Same for the original Vibe. :-D

I consider them to be equally craptacular.

I can be Vibe's number one fan while making another character my avatar.
Besides, she's nicer to look at. :wink:

To coin a phrase: The rationale behind your response is flawed (and here's a TV Trope link, because I do give a sh*t). :P

Not at all. The original Vibe already had enough character development to become even better than before. All a writer really has to do is continue along that line. Again, it's foolish to reinvent the wheel when the one you already have can roll just fine.
