Vibe vs. Geo-Force

Today, number of fans of Vibe on Facebook?

50.

Number of people in the Geo-Force fan group?

2

Really. And yet Geo-Force continues to get things like Final Crisis tie-in one-shots, while Vibe lies, waiting, in that glass container at the Secret Sanctuary...

Ollie. Hal. Barry. Arthur. And, now it's time to bring back the final missing member of the Iconic Justice League: Paco.

I think of Geo-Force as more of a myspace guy compared to vibe's facebook-ness. Or maybe he's more usenet...

Four-word pitch: The vibration is man-made.

C'mon, Didio, you know you want it.

Haven't you cracked the code yet? How can Libra know how to get at the JLA so well?

It's Vibe under that mask....and he wants payback!

That's why J'onn was first....

Was that "iconic" or "ironic"?

SallyP said...

Wait...Geoforce actually has TWO fans? I didn't realize the number was that high!

Paco? Blue Beetle Paco? Be still my heart.

Didn't Vibe have a brother with the same powers in the Conglomerate, the corporate super-heroes who showed up in Justice League Quarterly? Why not Geoff-isize him and have him become the new Vibe?

Scipio said...

Yes, he did: "Reverb".

And that is EXACTLY what needs to happen to him. Reverb needs to join the JSA.

Yeah, you read that right: the JSA.

Anthony Strand said...

Yes. His name was Reverb.

Vixen, by the way, doesn't even HAVE a page, because NO ONE cares about Vixen. And yet VIXEN gets to be in the JLA and have a miniseries...

Jason said...

Yeah, because she's pretty much the only black superheroine in the entire DCU aside from Bumblebee - and who would read a miniseries about Bumblebee?

Baal said...

There's actually a better chance I'd buy it than any mess with Vixen. Getting your first issue cancelled pre-publication should have been a warning...

Michael said...

I have a plan to bring back Vibe, a plan that's pure genius in its simplicity.

All I need to do first is find an artist, get my creator owned book published, sell tons of copies, make a name for myself, maybe get a movie or TV deal, and push Didio out of the path of a runaway truck.

Jason said...

I volunteer to drive the truck.

Vixen is great-- my favorite Detroit Leaguer (not counting Manhunter or Aquaman, but including Zatanna.) I'm buying her mini-series, and will continue to feature her on my JLD blog. She has 94 friends on her MySpace page.

Watch what you say about Vixen. She was in the Suicide Squad, which means a) by definition there've been more great stories with her in it than is true for Geo-Force, Vibe, Gypsy, Steel, and Looker combined (but not Katana, who also appeared in SS), and b) that she has some scary friends she can call on when she needs to.
