Vibe's Rogues Gallery

The fight does not end when we die.

No, the fight goes on. We do not lie about the afterlife strumming zithers and drinking wine coolers. The afterlife is a brighter better version of here, without stopping to go to the bathroom.

And, so, Vibe fights on in the celestial realms, unimpeded by Ivoids (soulless things that they are).

But ... whom does Vibe fight? Who constitutes Vibe's personal Rogue's Gallery in the afterlife?

Doctor Polaris, for sure. Any other suggestions?

Plasmus.

Those two have a history...

Brian Hughes said...

How about Quakemaster? He's not dead, AFAIK, but I'm sure it could be arranged...

Scipio said...

The Ventroliquist, for sure.

And Shakedown.

The original Icicle. "Tha's chill, man!"

Every time Ostrander (or, for that matter, anyone else) killed a Firestorm villian, he made a Vibe-afterlife villian. Black Bison, Mindboggler, Killer Frost(I), Tokamak, "Shoe" Shine, Goldenrod, the Weasel...all fighting Vibe these days.

Psycho Pirate 2. He could literally turn Vibe's catchphrase "Chu not bad, chu sad" against him.

Steven said...

Heck, Psycho Pirate 1 and his FABULOUS mustache.

And the crappier incarnations of the Royal Flush Gang.

Bully said...

I actually like the idea of Vibe not going to heaven but some Ragnorak-like limbo where every day, when a villain dies, he has to fight Vibe.

Vibe is having the time of his life. Er, death.

George Perez.

Who has printed/written/said that Vibe is the worst stereotype of Costa Ricans he'd seen. I read that he wasn't sad to see him go and glad that Vibe had been killed off....

Scipio said...

Vibe was Puerto Rican, not Costa Rican.

Sh'yeah, George Perez, one of the people who gave us Dick Grayson sleeping with "Omaha the Cat Dancer".

Son of Blog-El said...

"Omaha the Cat Dancer"?

Scipio said...

Starfire.

Andrew Ironwood said...

Starfire = Omaha the Cat Dancer, eh?

Well, now that it's been pointed out, I must retire anon to ponder why I had not made that particular connection before (seems so obvious now -- and explains so much...)

Anonymous said...

Well, my mistake. But George Perez is PUERTO RICAN not Costa Rican. The break dancing Puerto Rican was an offensive stereotype.

And so what if he did? you're against interspecies romance now? Sheesh!

Doctor Polaris said...

So it's come to this, then? The once mighty Doctor Polaris is reduced to fighting Vibe? Well, I'll take it -- as long as it means a spot in "JLA: Classified."

Crae said...

Sonik, Superhero of Sound could be a good adversary of Vibe. If he were dead, and if he were a villain.

Maybe he is dead?

Scipio said...

"The break dancing Puerto Rican was an offensive stereotype. "

To George. I knew breakdancing Puerto Ricans, and they weren't offended.

I have found that those most offended by stereotypes are those people who look down on others of their own ethnicity who aren't as mainstream as they are.

Well Andrew, Omaha or not, there's something about Starfire that always seems to give me an Ironwood ;)

David said...

I hadn't ever made the Starfire <=> Omaha connection either - and yet, now it seems so obvious! Like Morrissey and Marvin the Martian, those two are but bizarro-images of each other...

Scipio said...

I believe (Titans fans, keep me honest here) Wolfman even revealed at one point that Starfire's people (the Tamaranians) are evolved from felines.

Yep, they wanted a little pussycat sex kitten to throw Dick at.

Anonymous said...

You are correct, sir! When the Brain devolved the Teen Titans, Starry turned into a big kitty person.

Now I have to download the Omaha story, so I can read Alternate Universe Starfire...

David Cutler said...

Not that they don't look similar, but wasn't Omaha created like... 5 or 6 years after Starfire?
