I've always read about how Vibe is being groomed to beat the Flash. I get he has vibration powers but what makes him able to beat the Flash

@pfcoolio14: Apparently he can now severe another's ties to different dimensions, and since Flash gets his Speed from the Speed Force, Vibe can cut him off from that force, he did it to Kid Flash in the latest Vibe issue..only for like 2 milliseconds or something.

PIS and PIS only. Since Flash bloodlusted could snap Vibe's head off and stick it through his chest then pull his ears out his elbows before Vibe even has a chemical reaction in his brain enabling his ability to cut off Flash from the speed force which itself is sentient and wants Flash to use it and so can latch on.

Deus ex machina - that's how.

Proper power application

The Flash could react faster than Vibe could even think about neutralizing his powers, right?

Somewhat OT, but Vibe is such a goofy superhero name. Sounds like a character whose superpower is getting his enemies stoned and playing music with them.

Basically he can influence the powers of people who derive them from extradimensional sources like the Speed Force --- cut them off from it. He tried it on Kid Flash and it worked for something like 2 milliseconds.

Whoa, it is possible to cut Flash speed Force from him now. I see all the potential characters who can own Flash now. What a door opener.

Another example of DC trumping up another characters powers.

I dunno...Flash has been through hell and back. It doesn't matter what powers a hero has, just as long as they know how to use it.

Superman regularly has come up against opponents far more powerful than he is, but he is able to come out on top due to his experience.

Well doesn't PIS explain how Flash could survive an IMP? The convenient explanation is the Speed Force.

Everyone saying that Flash could murder Vibe before Vibe could even think about cutting him off from the Speed Force is acting under the assumption that Flash also thinks at super speeds. As far as I know, he doesn't. Which means that Vibe would win on an even footing. Of course, if Flash had any kind of drop on him he'd be done, but yeah.

Flash does think at Super Speeds. I believe it was the very first issue of the Flash in the New 52 that showed him considering every possibility while time was basically stopped (he was thinking that fast). Thats how it was pre-52 as well.

Every single Flash thinks at super-speed. They've been doing it since they were created. There have been stories where the Flash out-thinks the fastest supercomputers in the universe. And I don't know how you think Vibe would win when he managed to depower Kid Flash for two milliseconds ---- not really any kind of interval that gives him an advantage.
