History: (Fantastic Force I#14 (fb)) - Wakandan technologist A'Kane sought to boost Wakanda's economy and so began the Vibrasurge project, through which she hoped to create an energy source that would remain steady through controlled interaction of vibranium isotopes by interjecting a foreign isotope of Antarctic vibranium from the Savage Land into Wakanda's natural vibranium. The process initially appeared self-perpetuating and stable, but quickly became unstable and started consuming the inert vibranium, causing a chain reaction that was catastrophic. A huge explosion ensued, seemingly killing all those around it. One youth, N'Kano, survived, and the accident granted him super-powers; he christened himself Vibraxas.

(Fantastic Force I#15 (fb) - BTS) - Those caught at the epicenter of the blast were somehow hurled out of phase with reality and fused together in a single horrific organism.

(Fantastic Force I#14) - When Vibraxas returned to Wakanda, he released a blast of vibrations at the Vibrasurge site that created a sympathetic resonance, allowing the organism to return to reality.

(Fantastic Force I#15) - Vibraxas realized what had happened and christened the organism the Vibravore. Vibravore turned its awesome sound and vibrations on the surrounding countryside, repelling attacking artillery and heroes. The Wakandan leaders, including N'Kano, authorized the use of lethal force against Vibravore, but Fantastic Force found a way to defeat the Vibravore by rendering the unstable vibranium inert. The still living humans were released and Vibravore destroyed.
