This didn't suck as hard as I originally thought it would.


So Vibe is really this kid named Cisco, whose brother was Darkseid's first victim when he attacked Earth. Armando saved Cisco when a Boom Tube opened, then (apparently) got torn apart by it.
Fast forward several years...
Cisco has started manifesting powers connected to the frequency of other dimensions.
Hello, Amanda Waller!
Waller sends in an agent to recruit Cisco, giving his a costume, the code-name Vibe, and a spot on the Justice Le

Cisco Ramon also known as Vibe gained amazing abilities and this is his origin story.

I literally only read this because of Cisco's portrayal in The Flash.
If not for this portrayal, I imagine I would have never even known about Vibe. Cisco despite being different than his TV counterpart is still a really likeable character. Incredibly kind hearted, but not nearly as goofy. His origin story is the basic one for superheroes. An accident happened that gifted a teen with powers to help him protect t

I'll admit, I bought this mainly because Cisco's one of my favourite characters on the Flash, and I'd already heard that this wasn't that great a series. However, I actually really enjoyed it.

Collecting all 10 issues of Vibe's shortlived series, this volume takes Vibe on a jaunt through the DC Universe as he attempts to stop interdimensional intruders from across the multiverse. This leads him into conflict and cooperation with the JLA, Amanda Waller, and even more obscure DC properties like Ame

Interesting. Not sure how this fits into the whole crossover from the "pre-52" to "New 52" but Vibe has some "cosmic" level abilities in a people's-level hero, and makes for a fun, if predictable, hero. ...more

I'll be honest I read this book because of the Flash TV show and although the two Cisco's between the show and comic are different I enjoy them both. I just hope the TV show will be able to show this backstory still somehow because I this it shows depth to the character of Cisco Ramon. ...more

Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths.

My favorite t.v. show right now is “The Flash.” My favorite character (other than Barry Allen aka The Flash) is this guy named Cisco Ramon, who later becomes Vibe. So I when I wanted to know more about him and his whole story, I went to my local library, found this New 52 book, and started reading all about Cisco. I know it isn’t just like the t.v. show, but it’s close enough for me.

Actual Rating: 3.5 stars

I have a newfound love and appreciation for Cisco Ramon.
This was a mixed bag, but overall I enjoyed it. And at 232 pages, it has about 50% more to enjoy than most other first volumes in the New 52 product line.

On the positive side, the backstory and relationships between the three brothers at the center of this tale created emotional resonance, and the powers and universes involved made for some exciting effects and surprises. There are some challenging decision points and tensions going on between the characters, which made for an engaging story. Al

The origin of Vibe, and what kind of superhero he really is. I was familiar with the idea of Vibe from the Flash tv show. However, this Vibe has slightly different powers and a different way of looking at things. I love the way he always talks to his brother about everything, and that he could be the most powerful person on Earth once he knows how to use his powers. A good introduction to a new hero.

The "adventures in alternate realities" gag never gets old to me. I love it when this happens in comic books and Vibe gives us some dimension hopping that's pretty fun. He also gets mixed up in some black-ops alien task force shit with his pothead brother which is a pretty hair-raising affair. Sometimes Vibe is a bit of a lolly-gagging goodie-goodie and it's very trying for the reader (me), but I think this series is decent. ...more

Clearly someone at DC wants a character who can conveniently travel the multiverse. The New 52's update of Vibe was one version. Later there was Sideways. I'm sure there'll be another attempt, and another, and...

The biggest mistake this book committed was calling itself Vibe. Yes I understand why; I remember the original Vibe and Gypsy, and see how this is supposed to be a reinvention of the characters. The problem is that the original Vibe (and to a lesser extent Gypsy) is practically toxic, and people wouldn't give this series a chance based solely on the name.
And that's unfortunate, because this series actually does some interesting thing. Cisco is a decent character who is driven by his own moral c

I first started reading the Justice League of America some 35 years ago during the Detroit era - when the team was comprised of Vibe, Gypsy, Steel, Vixen and I seem to recall Batman was occasionally around looking things over. Okay, I just went and looked it up - how could I forget Zatanna and Martian Manhunter? Two of my all-time favorite characters, and this was likely where I was first exposed to them. Also, there's Elongated Man and Aquaman instead of Batman, and some guy named Dale...

I got this Volume because of my interest in the Flash TV series as it features Cisco Ramon as Vibe. This book collects the ten issue series as it follows young Cisco as he acquired latent powers in his incident that apparently killed his brother. After a few years, he's recruited for ARGUS for Amanda Waller's new Justice League of America and to keep the world safe from interdimensional beings which Cisco can detect.

This is a pretty decent story. It follows the standard superhero formula of char

This was a fun enough volume, I guess. It isn’t a bad title, but I struggle to really recommend it (and I admit that I’m more a Marvel than DC person, so that may have something to do with it). The story and art were generally fine, and I think I get where it generally fits into the timeline, so if you want to give it a go, I suppose there’s no harm in it. I just don’t think it is good enough to justify deliberately seeking it out.

All I knew of Cisco/Vibe was from the DC Nation shorts and the Flash TV series. In both he is presented as fun and loose. If you are expecting that, you're not going to have a great time here. While there are some good character moments, this just wasn't fun.

It is pretty difficult giving this book a rating, almost as hard as it is to write the review.

One of the things that comic book fans laud about constantly is the fact that there are no more contained stories, everything is tied into some major event that effects the entire company.

This book is a good example of that kind of situation. Vibe has been around for a long time, and has always been associated with the clueless nature of comic book creators who are attempting to be hip. Vibe is always o

Collects Justice League of America's Vibe issues #1-10

This volume (which is the complete collection of all of the New 52 issues of "Vibe") started out really strong. I was drawn into Cisco Ramon's origin story, and loved the "early days of Peter Parker" feel that I was getting from the book. A few issues in, though, things started to lose traction. Vibe is working with A.R.G.U.S. and the JLA, but the reader is constantly being show that we can't trust A.R.G.U.S. (an organization that takes "doin

Not a bad book, not great by any means though. A good read when there's not much else to grab in the comics section of the library. I remember Vibe and Gypsy from the old Justice League Detroit days along with Martian Manhunter and a few others. Vibe and Gypsy never made much of an impact and both were killed off relatively early on.
Vibe returned as a Black Lantern briefly during that whole story arc but I guess since the New 52 none of that stuff matters anymore!

Another OK book from the nuDC. It's got some fun callbacks to the Detroit JLA and the main character and his origin are interesting. But, as with most of the New 52, it's hurt by the obsessive use of the DC Nu house style, which results in the book constantly tumbling from one disaster to another, with cliffhangers every issue and no opportunity to catch your breath and look deeper into the storyline. Also, this story about the multiverse felt strangely small, with the only real waypoints being ...more

In this book Cisco and his brother are attacked by Darkseid, whose minions have invaded Earth. When Cisco was older he finds out that he possesses a super power, which allows him to defeat Darkseid's minions. He then is instructed to join the Justice League's new group. I would rate this book 3 out of 5 stars. Although the art was fantastic, the dialogue was lackluster and left several plot points unexplained. I would recommend this book to any super hero fans who are interested in more obscure ...more

I really enjoyed this one! Although I like The Flash Volume 1 of New 52, I thought this one was much better. I'm surprised that others felt the other way round about it. The characters here were interesting and the story was engaging. Loved the Ramon brothers.

The only part I thought was iffy was the "Gypsy" character. The "romance" (if you can even call it that) was very... not fleshed out/necessary. I don't think they did a very good job of making her a real person.

I liked this little 'detour' to explore a B list member of the Justice League...not enough for a full series but a nice little miniseries for him to shine in. Though this crosses over with some other characters like Suicide Squad and Kid Flash, it doesn't get confusing...even when the Multiverse gets brought into play. Thumbs up! ...more

Overall fine comic book story. I want to like Vibe in an early Peter Parker way, but I'm just not there yet.

The book handles diversity well.

The biggest issue is did the writers get confused on their origin of Gypsy because who her dad is changes in the storyline...and it's pretty drastic.

Not my favorite New 52 series, but not my least favorite either. Issue #5 includes Suicide Squad, which is always a delight. Some issues were better than others, it was sort of a mixed bag. I really liked Cisco’s relationship with his brother, but not so much his relationship with Gypsy.
