Vibe (real name: Paco Ramone) was spawned at time when the world was going crazy for everything Spanish American – in an attempt to be “hip” and “cool”, DC comics brought in Vibe, a former gang member who joined the Justice League and – instead of fighting crime – just spent most of the time hitting on chicks and, um, dancing. As a former gang member turned good, you’ll admit that Vibe was just livin’ it up ’80s style, and yet the character was considered a true abomination within the prestigious Justice League, so much so that he was eventually killed off and never heard of ever again. In the aftermath of his death, nothing of interest occurred. Vibe was that much of an intolerable douchebag.
