Vibe to Make Waves on The CW’s ‘Flash’?

vibeThe CW’s Arrow has been building an impressive universe of DC Comics characters translated for the small screen. The tradition sounds like it will continue with the spinoff The Flash.

According to Moviehole, The Flash’s alter ego Barry Allen will be joined by mechanical engineer Cisco Ramon, better known to DC fans as Vibe. A metahuman in the comics, Vibe has the ability to generate shock waves. Vibe put in stints with the Justice League in the old DC continuity as well as the New 52 one.

Arrow viewers saw Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) gain his powers after the Central City particle accelerator malfunctioned, creating a freak lightning storm that hit the forensic scientist, sending him into a shelf of chemicals.

The Flash begins shooting in March in Vancouver.

    This might actually be a good thing. Aside from the fact that New 52 already set up ARGUS and that Vibe’s powers can interact with Flash’s, he’s a hispanic character and that’s a demographic superhero shows have a hard time filling.

    i totally wasnt expecting the vibe of all characters to be one they pick. But i didnt know arrow producer also write vibe before. But best of luck for the character on the show and curious to see where this leads in the show.

    Because everyone’s clamoring for more Cisco Ramon…? *eyeroll*

    I guess it’s better than them butchering a more well known character.

    The rebooted version of Vibe has been a great character with lots of positive criticism. I think you need to catch up, it’s not 1985 anymore.

    If only I were as hip and modern as you… *sigh*

    I’m well aware of what year it is, and wasn’t around for Vibe’ s original, crappier incarnation.

    Why not?

    Arrow added Felicity Smoak to the Green Arrow mythology and made it work. No reason why adding Vibe can’t work for The Flash.

    Don’t waste any more of your time responding to this person. He or she is obviously being a snarky jackass for the sake of being a snarky jackass.
