Fictional character history

Paco Ramone

Paco Ramone’s career as a Justice Leaguer was as short as they come. His career as Vibe began shortly after Aquaman disbanded the original Justice League. When young Paco heard that a new Justice League was forming in his own backyard of Detroit, he decided to give up his position as the leader of a local street gang, El Lobos, to join up. [1] What made Ramone a candidate was metahuman ability to emit powerful vibratory shockwaves.

Vibe’s presence on the team caused Aquaman and the Martian Manhunter to harbor some strong doubts about the new JLA, particularly after he got the League involved in a rumble with a rival gang. [2] However, Vibe soon proved his mettle during the League’s battles against Cadre, [3] Anton Allegro, [4] and Amazo. [5] He stayed with the League through the first great Crisis, when his powers played a vital role in defeating Despero. [6]

During Darkseid’s assault on Earth’s “legends”, the Justice League of America was disbanded[7] and Paco left his JLA comrades to seek the familiar solace of the streets.[8] Vibe was attacked by one of Professor Ivo’s androids, and despite a valiant effort, became the first Justice League member to be killed in the line of duty.[9] The Martian Manhunter brought Vibe’s body back to the League’s mountain sanctuary, where Vibe was laid to rest in a cryogenic chamber. However, Paco’s dead form has twice been resurrected by evil-doers. [10]

Armando Ramone

One of Vibe’s younger brothers, Armando, recently developed a similar set of vibratory powers and joined Booster Gold’s team of heroes, the Conglomerate, using the code names Reverb and later Hardline. [11]

Other Media

Vibe has made several appearances in the show Justice League Unlimited. He was often seen next to other members of the Detroit League but he did not get a major role in any episode. He did have a major role in an issue of the Justice League Unlimited comic book series where he stopped Doctor Sivana’s plan to rebuild Mister Atom.
