What is the one super power that is more than a match for Vibe and how can it tear the universe apart?

    So not a bad beginning for a title I am surprised to be buying. The friction between Vibe and ARGUS's goals is going to be the big draw for me. The possibility of classic inter-dimensional characters showing up is some nice spice. And Gates' sensibilities on a young hero along with Woods' slick art. Read Full Review

    There have been those that have questioned the nature of this book due to Vibe's previous portrayal and the title but the series continues to be interesting. With Sterling Gates on board, you know he will give the character the enthusiasm he usually pumps into his writing. Vibe is meant to be a threat against Flash and seeing him 'practice' against Kid Flash is a great angle and also serves to give us some answers as to Kid Flash's origin. With so much deception in the book, you get the sense that things could explode at any moment. That's part of the charm of this book. You don't necessarily know what's coming up next.

    A great-looking title which now has a solid writer on board bodes well for the future. Read Full Review

    Overall Gates does a splendidly entertaining job keeping the various characters of the book and the tone of the book itself consistent with what was already shown. Its still one of the lightest books that DC Comics has out right now and that is definitely not a bad thing. Its fun, peppy, and much like a Saturday morning cartoon in the way its set up and there is a sore lack of that. The art, courtesy of Pete Woods and Fabiano Neves, also help to evoke a very fun atmosphere. Heres to whatever amount this titles has left before it surely reaches the chopping block.

    There's nothing particularly earth-shattering or original about the concept and execution of Vibe. But the series serves its purpose as far as fleshing out one of the more recent additions to the New 52 and complementing the events of JLA. Read Full Review

    Obviously, this book is building up to Vibe breaking away from A.R.G.U.S. and someone (Booster Gold, maybe???) shows up to point him in that direction. What role Vibe will play in the larger scheme of things remains to be seen, but from the looks of things, it will be huge! Who knew a character from such a humble origin could prove so vital? And likeable and entertaining? Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Zach Wilkerson Apr 18, 2013

    "Justice League of America's Vibe" is a book with a lot of potential. Though officially a “Justice League” group book, “Vibe” fills the gaping hole in DC's “Young Justice” line, a sub-group plagued by early cancellations. Offering solid art, a promising supporting cast, and a unique view of the inner workings of A.R.G.U.S. and the mysteries of the New 52, this is a book all DC fans should be looking at. However, perhaps due to the Vibe's unenviable reputation, the creative team seems to lack the confidence needed to make this a true must-read. It almost seems as if DC hopes to cover this insecurity by packing the book with high concepts and fan service. In order for this book to thrive, Gates needs to capitalize on the cast by fleshing out Cisco's relationship with his brother and Agent Gunn. As fun as good mystery is, it's hard to care for all the twists and turns without strong characterization to back it up. Read Full Review

    A Comic Book Blog - Daniel Cole Apr 18, 2013

    So, Gate's comes on board and it seems that he isn't too enthusiastic with the character. He pushes forward the plot that started in issue one and there is a sense that Gate's is perhaps rushing past this plot to get to his own story. The issue itself is fine, it has a lot of problems but it isn't offensive. The art is solid and continues to give the book a suitable tone. One can only hope that this is just the shaky first issue that comes from a change in writer and not the quality of the title moving forward. Read Full Review

    "Justice League of America's Vibe" #3 is a showcase of super-powered characters fighting simply because two of them are in the same place at the same time. There are glimpses of Kid Flash's story and a little more characterization given to Vibe, but the issue as a whole falls considerably short. There are plenty of fragments of this title for readers to latch on to, but it hasn't all started to gel together yet. With this issue complete, Gates should be settled in and I'm hopeful this issue shook out any adjustments the creative team needed to identify to move forward so the titular character can live to see the promising future Amanda Waller believes awaits him.
