Default Next Geoff/Ethan project is Vibe: Rebirth?!?

Apparently preliminary buzz is so good on Flash: Rebirth that DC has already announced the next character giving the Rebirth treatment: Vibe from the 1980s “Detroit-era” Justice League.

Geoff Johns and Ethan Van Sciver talk ‘Vibe: Rebirth’
After Flash, It’s Vibe: Rebirth

From the second link, Dan Didio explains:

It was really a melding of events. First of all, with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash and Green Lantern all leaving the Justice League, Dwayne McDuffie wanted to try and bring back some of the feel of the Detroit-era League. And what character is most associated with that League? Vibe! Plus we had some very positive fan response to his appearances in Trinity. And orders for Flash: Rebirth have been phenomenal. We want to strike while the iron is hot, so I asked Ethan if he’d be interested, and he just jumped at the opportunity. Literally, he jumped. I could hear the thump on the other end of the phone.
It kind of makes sense in a twisted sort of way.

The sucky thing is that with Geoff going straight into this after Flash:Rebirth finishes, he won't have time to do the ongoing. Seriously, Judd Winick? Not my first choice for a Flash book.

Sooner or later, you realize that Lucy is never going to let you kick the damn football.

I'm getting the wrong kind of Vibe from this!

Got to return the iconic characters to their most iconic form of course!


There is a downside, though. Just as Ethan Van Sciver had to scale back his involvement with Blackest Night in order to do Flash: Rebirth, Geoff Johns won’t be available immediately for the post-Rebirth relaunch of The Flash. “I’m sure the fans will be happy to know,” Didio said, “that for the first six months of the ongoing, the Flash will be in Judd Winick’s capable hands.
Can't wait for that either!

I actually would like to see Vibe come back. In the right hands it could be really good.

Wait, you may actually be right about that...

As much as I know this is a joke, somehow I get the feeling that a Geoff/Ethan Vibe story could actually be cool.
Superman Returns was a great film. DO NOT REBOOT!
