Born of Meng


Ten Reasons Vibe is Like Jesus:

  1. Born on the wrong side of town.
  2. Sported skeevy facial hair.
  3. Never got married or seen dating a girl.
  4. Had at least one brother who followed in his footsteps, but is forgotten by almost everyone.
  5. Led a gang and got in trouble with the law.
  6. Had powers; occasionally used them for good; mostly used them to show off.
  7. Hung out with losers (Ralph Dibney and Hank Heywood) and whores (Vixen and Zatanna).
  8. Died young, and from asphyxiation. And for your sins, I might add.
  9. Had a storyline where he is resurrected. Several of them, actually.
  10. Has become more popular since he died.

Hey now, Hank Heywood and Ralph Dibny weren't...

Uh...

Okay, you may have a solid point there.

After seeing this list, I think you'd be better of making lists of the things they *don't* have in common. They'd be shorter.

Like say, the fact that Jesus could fly but Vibe can't.

11. They're both fictional characters ;)

Ok, I know that's obvious, I'm just sayin :p

12. Both were condemned to death by the people they were created to save.

13. Both are talked about a lot on internet blogs.

14. Both came into the public eye when they started hanging out with a guy who dealt in water a lot.

Oh, you're going to Detroit for this!

Diamondrock said...

Sorry, Jon. But you should know that Vibe, like Jesus was and is *real* and even now lives in the hearts of believers the world over.

Jon said...

Wait, Vibe was real? What religion do I have to sign up to?

I'm sitting here looking at my new Vibe action figure, that arrived yesterday. Never thought I'd see the day. Now I guess I have to display him next to my Jesus action figure.

Hey now, Zatanna wasn't a whore. She was just looking for a father figure...with her cooch.

totaltoyz said...

Oh. Kind of like Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Ha, I'm loving Vibe in Trinity.

And we ALL remember Rebirth . . . er, Revibe?

Got it, Reverb, the grammatical crimebuster!

Jesus couldn't pop-n-lock, though!
