They've made aquaman cool,why can't they make vibe cool.
In fact,Almost everyone thought that aquaman wouldn't last 8 issues.
And now you guys are saying that Vibe is going to suck.....wow
Not the same, at all. Unlike Vibe, Aquaman has always had a loyal and supportive fanbase. I never heard anyone say that Aquaman would only last 8 issues. To say so would be absolutely ridiculous.
His last volume before The New 52 wasn't kickstarted by super-star creators and it lasted 57 issues. In fact, the only reason the series started selling poorly was because it was getting sh!tty.
So, Aquaman can clearly last more than 8 issues by his own. Add to that the fact that the reboot and that Geoff Johns and Ivan Reis are working on it guarantees new readers, and you've got yourself a pretty safe book.
Vibe is a character who is obscure to many and loathed by most who know about him. Aquaman haters may think he's lame, but his fans know the character and can see what's good about him. Vibe was only an annoyance, a walking stereotype. Maybe Johns can do something good with him but, unless he's writing the series, Vibe's series will probably fail to sell.
TL;DR: Vibe isn't unredeemable, but he's not an easy character to sell. And he's not on Aquaman's level. Not even close.
