Firstly, Did anyone else hear that Disney is buying Marvel for $4 billion??? What a way to start the day! I don't know how to feel about this. I just hope Disney doesn't try to anesthetize my comics!
On to Vibrania. The more involved a character history, the more invested in that character I become - which explains my interest in Vibrania (who first appears in 1990 alongside Marvel's Speedball in ). Vibrania's entire history is invented: she comes from the fictional African nation Kwarrai and was paralyzed, but also ultimately granted her powers (and name) by the alloy Vibranium, a metal which only exists in the Marvel Universe (the same Vibranium of which Captain America's shield is comprised).
