VIBE Gets A New Role In The DC Universe

VIBE Gets A New Role In The DC Universe

Vibe takes on his new task guarding the gateway to the DC multiverse



Source: Newsarama

 

Beginning in February, Vibe will be tasked with guarding the gateway to the DC multiverse, and stopping invasions from other dimensions. Also look for him to interact with new and familiar faces from DC's other "Earths."

 
Writers Andrew Kreisberg and Geoff Johns will tie this title into Johns' other high-profile comics, Justice League and Justice League of America
 
Drawn by Pete Woods, Vibe will focus on a young hero named Cisco Ramone (although his brothers have nick-named him "Paco.") The New 52 has given Cisco unique powers that can detect invasions from other dimensions, making him a key figure in this year's most anticipated events in the DCU.
 
In the first arc of Justice League, Darkseid invaded the DC Universe, starting his invasion in Detroit. The Ramone brothers were caught in the crossfire, and Armando, the oldest, sacrificed himself to save the youngest, Cisco. This encounter gave Cisco superpowers. And Detroit is now the location of a "weakened membrane" between dimensions.

After getting the attention of A.R.G.U.S. Agent Dale Gunn, Cisco finds out that his powers allow him to sense incursions from other dimensions into Detroit. Thus, Vibe ends up guarding the gateway to the multiverse.
 
According to Kreisberg, “I think that gives a strong franchise to the book. He's here to clean up Detroit from these incursions, but the people he's working for — Amanda Waller and A.R.G.U.S. — don't always, necessarily, have his best interest at heart, or the best interest of some of the innocent people who come through. And it's going to lead to a lot of interesting conflicts.”
 
A lot of this book is tying into both the Justice League book and the Justice League of America book. There's going to be a lot of inter-dimensional conflict in the DC Universe coming up. And because Vibe's powers are derived directly from it, the book is going to take this very unknown or unappreciated character and thrust him into the center of all of it.
 
 
It's really a coming-of-age tale, and there's a feeling of, "what would you do if you were in that situation?" And I think he reacts with realistic reactions to these impossible situations, and he's asking questions that most superheroes don't ask. And those questions are going to get him in trouble. And most of the time he's asking, "Am I going to get killed if I do this?" That doesn't make him a coward, but I think instead it makes him, sort of, "us."

Extraordinary things that are being planned with the Justice League and the Justice League of America, so to have that gateway character is something that's fresh and new for DC.
 
Vibe’s main relationship is with his brother Dante, and he's going to be the voice of reason. Dante's going to be the one who's saying, "They want you to join the Justice League? They need someone to get killed to the other ones can go fight harder?" 
And then he's also working along with Dale Gunn, who's a member of A.R.G.U.S. and his sort of mentor. There's a little bit of a Men in Black feel, where Cisco is the Will Smith, young, hot-shot and Dale Gunn is sort of the older, Tommy Lee Jones, crusty, seen-it-all kind of guy, but still has a soft spot in his heart for his young protégé.
And everybody's working for Amanda Waller.

Later one, watch for the Suicide Squad to show up.
 
Although it ties into the Justice League of America book and also what's going on in the Justice League book Vibe will stand as its own book. You won’t need to also buy the other two Justice League titles to understand and enjoy this one.
 
Kreisberg adds: If you don't know who Vibe is, or if you do remember him and don't remember him fondly, I would just ask that you really give this book a shot. In the same way that Geoff really revived Booster Gold, I think there's a lot of similarities to this character and with how Geoff really turned Booster into somebody that you can't imagine the DC Universe without anymore.

You know who would be great at guarding the gateway to the DC multiverse? Booster Gold.

That's a series that I would actually read.

It's interesting you would say that, Grayson, since (in the original Newsarama article) both Kreisberg and I compared the VIBE comic to what Geoff did with BOOSTER GOLD. I think it's going to have a lot of similarities to that series - the humor, the borderline bumbling but heroic acts - just without the time travel.

I'm going to give this a look. Would never have thought a Booster Gold series would have been one of my top reads but it was.
Besides, I liked the Detroit League - they were the first League comics I ever read.

I saw that but all things considered I will still pass on this series. I don't want to read a story that's like a Booster Gold story and doesn't feature Booster Gold, when DC had a Booster Gold they could use. With DC's books being as hit-and-miss as they are, I just can't justify buying a new book featuring a character that I didn't like and had no interest in prior to the relaunch. Don't get me wrong, I read these articles to see if there is anything that may be of any interest to me but I can safely say this has been one of those titles that just makes me laugh.
