It sounds like the new Vibe will be a coward

Speaking of the Justice League, MTV's Geek section spoke with writer Andrew Kreisberg about his and Geoff Johns' plans for reintroducing the short-lived hero named Vibe who appeared towards the end of Justice League of America's 1960-87 run, and was killed off at the end. The personality he's given now is described like this:
Although he looks up to the other Leaguers, Kreisberg says Vibe is definitely a realist, often questioning the wisdom of running headlong into battle. Kreisberg says that unlike Superman or Batman, the first question that comes to mind when he's standing toe-to-toe with a Parademon will be "Is this thing going to kill me?"
Gee, isn't it obvious that an alien like that, if its mindset is demented enough, is willing to do just that? Sure it pays to figure out the strengths and weaknesses of a villain, but that doesn't mean the heroes should be afraid to confront and battle the enemy. But that's what this new rendition sounds like. And I don't think making Vibe out to act like a coward is the most inspiring way to recreate him. A realist takes into account that if nothing is done to fight off a menacing villain, even from outer space, there could come disaster, as will sooner or later for this series' sales.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
