: (Fantastic Force#14 (fb)) - N'Kano was the son of a talented technologist, A'Kane, in the nation of Wakanda. N'Kano's godfather, N'Kano, for whom he was named and whose niece, R'Shumba, was his dearest friend, supported A'Kane in designing the Vibrasurge project in an attempt to perpetuate Wakanda's economy. When the project exploded, A'Kane and many others were killed, but N'Kano's body became a template for the vibrations released by the unstable vibranium, granting him super-powers and control of vibrations. He was buried in a blast, where he briefly witnessed an other-dimensional monster he could not explain, then blasted outward, clearing the rubble over him and shattering his skeletal structure. After months of healing, the Black Panther, T'Challa, Wakanda's leader, gave Vibraxas a regulator harness which allowed him to control his new abilities.

(Fantastic Four I#390) - T'Challa called the Fantastic Four for aid, wondering if they would be willing to help train Vibraxas in the use of his powers and hoping that Vibraxas becoming a hero would be good for Wakanda's reputation. The Human Torch, however, was wrapped up in his concerns and hung up on T'Challa.

(Fantastic Four I#391) - T'Challa took Vibraxas to the United States to see the Fantastic Four directly, and stopped in New Jersey to visit the Inhumans, who were temporarily living on Earth. When the Inhumans heard of T'Challa's plans for Vibraxas, they asked T'Challa to take Devlor, an Inhuman who also needed help with his powers, with them to the Fantastic Four. Vibraxas was ill-mannered and slightly racist toward the Inhumans.

(Fantastic Four I#392) - T'Challa, Vibraxas, and Devlor arrived at the Fantastic Four headquarters at the same time as Psi-Lord and Huntara, two Fantastic Four allies from the other-dimensional Elsewhen, and the five of them discovered that the Fantastic Four were under attack by the Dark Raider, an alternate Mister Fantastic. They aided the team in battle with the villain until Aron, the rogue Watcher, posing as Uatu, defeated Dark Raider for them.

(Fantastic Force#1) - Since the Fantastic Four temporarily disbanded, T'Challa took Vibraxas and Devlor to other accommodations, and invited Psi-Lord and Huntara to stay with them. Vibraxas trained against robots set to test his powers, and felt he was gaining better control, but Huntara had to save him when he grew overconfident. Angered, Vibraxas tried to show T'Challa respect, but was blatantly rude to Psi-Lord, Huntara, and Devlor. T'Challa's old enemy and the man who murdered T'Challa's father, T'Chaka, Klaw, attacked, seeking revenge on T'Challa, and Vibraxas briefly held his own against the villain. Klaw successfully held off Vibraxas, Devlor, Psi-Lord, and Huntara, until Vibraxas used his powers to disrupt Klaw's internal harmonics, and T'Challa arrived to finish Klaw off. Psi-Lord proposed that the four unlikely allies join together as a heroic team, but Vibraxas refused until T'Challa ordered him to train with the team, which T'Challa named Fantastic Force.

(Fantastic Force#2) - T'Challa funded the building of a headquarters for Fantastic Force, but when Vibraxas saw it, he reacted with animosity, stating he would stay in a hotel. Despite his teammates' objections, Vibraxas left for a walk and shook apart a car that almost hit him. Hearing the sounds of battle, Vibraxas intervened in a battle between Huntara and the warrior woman, Zarathrusta. Zarathrusta held off all of Fantastic Force before escaping. Huntara decked Vibraxas for interrupting her battle.

(Fantastic Force I#3) – Vibraxas trained against Huntara, who proved superior to his skills. When Vibraxas asked Psi-Lord what a ‘buck’ was, he learned that in America others can be judged according to skin color, a concept that disgusted Vibraxas. Vibraxas and Huntara resumed their training, but were attacked by the Inhuman Seeker, who was seeking Devlor. The Seeker left them both unconscious and, when they awoke, they pursued him only to find that Devlor had let him escape. Vibraxas chided Devlor once again.

(Fantastic Force I#4) – Vibraxas stopped two thieves from robbing a Korean man’s shop, causing extensive damage to the shop due to his powers. The Korean shop owner was furious, asking who would pay for the damage, shocking Vibraxas, but he had to rush off to aid the Fantastic Force and Captain America in battling the Adaptoid Batch-13, after Professor Isaac Sandor called for help. Vibraxas relished in the new fame their victory brought the team. Meanwhile, in Wakanda, T’Challa received news that the Vibrasurge project had reopened.

(Avengers I#383 - BTS) – Vibraxas and Huntara visited Wakanda.

(Fantastic Force I#5) – Vibraxas and Devlor’s sleep was interrupted by a psychic call from Psi-Lord, who’d been possessed by Dreadface. Huntara drove Dreadface out after Vibraxas and Devlor had been subdued. Meanwhile, in Wakanda, N’Kano convinced T’Challa of the value of keeping the Vibrasurge project, ensuring there would be no more lives lost.

(Fantastic Force#6) – Fantastic Force defeated Grey Gargoyle, which furthered their local fame. When Vibraxas heard that the Korean shopkeeper he had aided was shot, he went to investigate and knocked down an attacking racist at the man’s closed shop. He visited the Korean man at the hospital and learned the attack had been due to a racial conflict between two gangs, the Korean Sons of Sinanju and the African American Wakandan Lords. Feeling he needed aid in handling the gang situation, Vibraxas humbled himself and asked Psi-Lord and Fantastic Force for aid. They broke up a gang fight, and briefly battled the psycho-savant Go-Devil. Vibraxas took the opportunity to lecture the subdued gangs on the ridiculousness of racism. Vibraxas's vibranium regulators were shattered during the brief fight. As he turned away, one of the Sons of Sinanju moved to shoot him and Vibraxas reacted instinctively, accidentally killing the gang member.

(Fantastic Force I#7) – Vibraxas spent the night in jail and was released pending his trial. He was told by Sergeant Enriquez that the case was clearly self-defense. Vibraxas, despite his teammates disagreements over his actions, was ready to accept whatever consequences came from the act, but was wary of using his powers again. The Fantastic Force soon joined Fantastic Four ally Lyja the Lazerfist in tracking down a mysterious vision of the Invisible Woman, and the trek led them to Latveria, where they battled robotic Doombots and discovered Psi-Lord’s grandfather, Nathaniel Richards, was ruling the country. After Huntara rescued the Invisible Woman from the Negative Zone, the entire group, with Doctor Doom (Kristoff Vernard) followed the Invisible Woman to deep space, where her team was caught in a conflict with the alien Watchers and the massive Celestials.

(Fantastic Four I#400) – Vibraxas, Fantastic Force, the Fantastic Four, and their allies helped find a resolution to the conflict, and Vibraxas joined some of his allies in defeating the rogue Watcher, Aron, who summoned simulacrums of the Fantastic Four’s enemies to repel their attacks.

(Fantastic Force#8) – Vibraxas introduced himself to the parents of the slain youth, and learned that his older brother had also been killed in a gang attack. Later, he returned to the team and let Paul Alvarez, who had business with Huntara, into the building.

(Fantastic Force#9) – Fantastic Force confronted Nathaniel Richards in Latveria for possibly manipulating them, and were forced to subdue a mind-controlled Human Torch first. Nathaniel caused Psi-Lord to lose control of his powers and then retreated.

(Fantastic Four: Atlantis Rising#2) – Fantastic Force moved on to the raised island of Atlantis where they found the Fantastic Four and their allies Lyja, Sub-Mariner, and Thor captured by Morgan le Fay. The Inhumans Genetics Council attacked the Force until Vibraxas brought the roof down on them. Though they were captured for a short time, Morgan le Fay was soon defeated and the FF and their allies escaped.

(Fantastic Force#10) – T’Challa arrived and angrily confronted Vibraxas over the murder just before the Human Torch stormed in announcing he would be acting as the new leader of Fantastic Force. The situation was only exacerbated when Psi-Lord, struggling with his powers, stepped down as leader.

(Fantastic Force#10/2) – Vibraxas confided briefly in Devlor about his struggle to control his powers and his shame at T’Challa’s reaction.

(Fantastic Force#10) - Before they could do more than react, the Force with their two allies, though leaving Psi-Lord behind, tracked down Zarathrusta and her minions and ended up battling Lord Moses.

(Fantastic Force#11) – Lord Moses captured all of the Force and their allies and negated their powers, keeping Vibraxas in magneto-metric suspension. They listened to Lord Moses’ origins before escaping and battling he and Zarathrusta, who was soon captured though Lord Moses escaped. Soon, the Force pursued Psi-Lord to Elsewhen and were quickly attacked by the armored Vangaard.

(Fantastic Force#12) – Vangaard successfully repelled every attack that the Force threw at him and seemed undefeatable until the Human Torch taught him about humanity and Vangaard relented in his attack.

(Fantastic Force#13) – Fantastic Force were hailed as heroes in Elsewhen. When the returned to Earth, Wyatt Wingfoot asked their aid in finding a mind-controlled She-Hulk. They subdued her then tracked down the Puppet Master, whose innocence was confirmed by Alicia Masters. They did not learn that Diablo was the manipulator.

(Fantastic Force#14) - Vibraxas, after being cleared of his crime in America after the courts ruled self-defense, returned to Wakanda to be tried for his crime. His godfather, N'Kano, represented Wakanda's interests, asking for Vibraxas to be held accountable, but She-Hulk, acting as Vibraxas's lawyer, represented that Vibraxas deserved a self-defense ruling, with Fantastic Force and Wyatt Wingfoot watching. The court convened for a time, and R'Shumba burst into the room and punched Vibraxas in the jaw before running out. Vibraxas confronted R'Shumba outside, and she let him know that the Vibrasurge project had been restarted. He rushed off to destroy the project, attacking its guards, but briefly stopped to explain his origins to Fantastic Force. He turned his powers on the project, unintentionally creating a sympathetic resonance that allowed the energies from the previous catastrophe, which had absorbed the bodies of its victims and been misplaced outside of reality, to resurface.

(Fantastic Force#15) - Calling the monstrosity Vibravore, Vibraxas, the other heroes, and Wakandan artillery were repelled by the creature. After T'Challa and N'Kano authorized the use of lethal force against Vibravore, Fantastic Force quickly delved out a way to render the creature's unstable vibranium inert instead, releasing its still living human victims. Vibraxas was saddened to learn that his mother was not among the survivors. Having returned to court, the Wakandans judged Vibraxas not guilty, but suspended all Wakandan involvement in Fantastic Force activities. This act disgusted Vibraxas and he chose to defect from Wakanda to America.

(Fantastic Force#16) - While Devlor was ill, Vibraxas went to visit the Korean man in the hospital and ran into Go-Devil, but the man stopped them from fighting. He finally introduced himself as Kim Po and invited Vibraxas to become an assistant at his shop, an act which Vibraxas appreciated and accepted. Vibraxas mourned Devlor when the Inhuman seemed to die, but Devlor was quickly reborn.

(Fantastic Force#17) - The team met She-Hulk at their new headquarters just before Diablo assaulted them mentally with their greatest fears, for Vibraxas, it was unintentionally harming his teammates with his powers. They were soon captured.

(Fantastic Force#18) - The group freed themselves and defeated Diablo. They then met Mister Fantastic who had returned to the Fantastic Four.

(Fantastic Four I#416) - The Fantastic Four called their allies, including Fantastic Force and T'Challa, to defend their headquarters from the attacking Onslaught. They battled a psionic manifestation created by Franklin Richards of Red Ghost and his Super-Apes.

(Black Panther III#31 (fb) - BTS) - Fantastic Force disbanded and Vibraxas wandered through America without purpose.

(Black Panther III#26 (fb) - BTS) - Vibraxas realized that he was losing control of his powers and that he needed help so that he didn't harm anyone else.

(Black Panther III#25) - Driving in Texas in a stolen truck, Vibraxas tried calling the Fantastic Four for help, but a bullet  fired by the police shattered his regulator headband and he was disconnected.

(Black Panther III#26) - Briefly losing control of his powers, Vibraxas phased the policeman who fired the shot so that the wreckage of their cars wouldn't harm them. He reached the Fantastic Four, and they encouraged him to call T'Challa. Vibraxas agreed to swallow his pride and do so. He borrowed a ship from the Fantastic Four and flew to Wakanda, but was shot down by the White Wolf, T'Challa's rival, who used Vibraxas's powers to restore Klaw's corporeal form.

(Black Panther III#27) - Vibraxas awoke in the jungle to a naked girl, Queen Divine Justice (QDJ) (who'd been out for a nature walk in the buff) calling him 'Nappy Fro Lad.' He tried grabbing her arm and she slugged him. She left him behind.

(Black Panther III#28) - Vibraxas finally made it to the palace, where he was greeted by QDJ, and admitted he was ashamed to see T'Challa. They bonded in the kitchen.

(Black Panther III#29) - Vibraxas accompanied QDJ when they were asked to vacate the palace. He revealed that his powers were now gone, and asked to see the king. Vibraxas and QDJ ended up in an air pocket, protecting a Deviant child over whom a small war was being fought, when the roof collapsed on their heads. Vibraxas was shocked when QDJ kissed him, and they were soon rescued by the Sub-Mariner.

(Black Panther III#31) - Vibraxas went to stay with N'Kano, and QDJ surprised him with a picnic which she brought through the window. Thinking her a cook, Vibraxas kissed her and was slightly chided when he took things too far. They fell asleep on his bed, clothed, and N'Kano entered, shaming Vibraxas for his actions and QDJ quickly left. Vibraxas was very shocked when N'Kano revealed QDJ was one of the Dora Milaje, the ceremonial brides-in-training for the king.

(Black Panther III#32) - Vibraxas rushed to confront QDJ and was stalled by Zuri and W'Kabi, T'Challa's aides, who shamed him. Vibraxas demanded to see QDJ, and W'Kabi stated that Vibraxas would never see her again, and, in fact, he had destroyed her.

(Black Panther III#33) - Having learned that QDJ and Ramonda, the king's mother, had been shot down in Q'Noma valley, home of T'Challa's enemy, the Man-Ape, he phased through a wall to confront W'Kabi and Zuri, and vowed to go after QDJ.

(Black Panther III#34) - Vibraxas commandeered a sky-sled and rode it to the Gorilla Palace in Q'Noma valley. He phased through the wall and, after hugging QDJ, confronted her on her being Dora Milaje, but was quickly knocked unconscious by Man-Ape. When QDJ showed concern, Man-Ape let Vibraxas live, but had him wrapped in a burial shroud covered in Kurieto mud that would block his powers.

(Black Panther III#35) - T'Challa and his temporary ally, Henry Peter Gyrich, arrived to rescue Vibraxas. While Gyrich held off Man-Ape, T'Challa and QDJ, who had learned that she was the princess of the Man-Ape's tribe, freed Vibraxas. T'Challa battled Man-Ape and QDJ, feeling more connected to Vibraxas than ever, kissed Vibraxas, causing him to wake and briefly lose control of his powers as Man-Ape had taken away his control bands, and the Gorilla Palace fell down around them.

(Black Panther III#48) - QDJ found Vibraxas in the woods and confessed that she loved him, kissing him again, despite Vibraxas pushing her away. She explained that Man-Ape was being held prisoner and her people in internment camps. She also explained that T'Challa's future self, who'd journeyed to the past, was dying and that Man-Ape may be able to help find a cure. Despite his reservations, Vibraxas phased them through the walls and freed Man-Ape. Their involvement proved tragic, though, when Man-Ape murdered the future T'Challa.

(Black Panther III#49) - Man-Ape prepared his tribe for war, and T'Challa, with his army, prepared to move against them. Vibraxas and QDJ attempted to quell the war by explaining their motives in freeing Man-Ape, but T'Challa reacted harshly, stating that Man-Ape and QDJ must be put to death for their crimes and Vibraxas must be sentenced to several years in prison. Vibraxas, furious, denounced the king and was attacked, not knowing that T'Challa was hallucinating Vibraxas to be Magneto due to T'Challa's brain injury. Vibraxas held his own against T'Challa, but T'Challa, unintentionally, wounded QDJ, causing Vibraxas to cry out his love for her. The two tribes went to war until QDJ awoke and begged T'Challa to let her people go free.

(Black Panther VI#16 (fb) - BTS) - Vibraxas and Asha were assigned, with some Hatut Zeraze, to guard Asira in New York City. While Vibraxas was absent one day, Asira was kidnapped by the Fenris twins.

(Black Panther VI#16) - Vibraxas apologized to Black Panther for not protecting Asira more effectively. Black Panther took Vibraxas and Asha with him to Club Fenris to confront the villains. Vibraxas used a vibratory field to hold off super-villains, then Fenris was defeated.

(Black Panther I#170) - When the Originators attacked Wakanda, Vibraxas joined Manifold, Asha, Storm, Black Panther, the Hatut Zeraze, White Tiger, Shuri, and others in fighting back.

(Black Panther I#172) - Vibraxas helped Black Panther and his allies fight the Adversary. When they were nearly crushed, Vibraxas kept he and Asha safe with a vibrational field.

(Black Panther VII#18) - Black Panther and Storm summoned allies, including Vibraxas, to be ready for war with the Wakandan forces from space.

(Black Panther VII#23) - Vibraxas heard Black Panther give an inspiring speech about their coming war.

(Black Panther VII#24) - Vibraxas fought alongside the Black Panther and his allies against the forces of the Wakandans from space.

(Black Panther VII#25) - During the final battle, Vibraxas was briefly possessed by Bast, who turned him against his allies before the enemy was finally defeated.

(Last Annihilation: Wakanda#1) - Vibraxas was sent with Shuri, Manifold, and the Askari warriors, led by M'Baku, to help defend the planet Aerie from the invading Mindless Ones, controlled by Dormammu. They fought alongside the Imperial Guard against overwhelming odds until they used Mysterium to turn the tides.

(Wakanda I#2/1 (fb) - BTS) - Vibraxas relocated to the planet Bast in the Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda, where he worked with M'Baku, Taku, and others to prepare for the intergalactic emancipation celebration.

(Wakanda I#2/1) - Vibraxas greeted Photon and Asira Davin (the given name for Queen Divine Justice), then showed them how his powers helped phase then entire platform into the celebration. After Vibraxas and Asira reminisced about their past, they were attacked by armored warriors, terrorists called the Pride of Ghekre, and they battled the White Wolves. Vibraxas regrouped with Riitho and others as they understood the complexities of the societal change they were seeking.

Vibraxas has an entry in OHotMU 2006 A-Z#12.

Profile by Chadman.

Vibraxas has no known connections to:


(Fantastic Force#14 (fb)) - N'Kano and his friend, A'Kane, watched R'Shumba, N'Kano's niece, and N'Kano, A'Kane's son who was named after N'Kano, and discussed Wakanda's future. N'Kano supported A'Kane in starting the Vibrasurge project, which would combine Wakanda's vibranium with an unstable isotope that would hopefully recharge Wakanda's economy. When the project exploded and killed many, A'Kane was killed and N'Kano was granted superpowers, becoming the hero, Vibraxas, and moving to the United States.

(Fantastic Force I#5) – N’Kano convinced the Black Panther of the value of the Vibrasurge Project, citing that Wakanda’s vibranium resources were not unlimited. N’Kano insured that no more lives would be lost.

(Fantastic Force#14) - N'Kano represented Wakanda's interests in a trial against Vibraxas for an accidental manslaughter on American soil, while She-Hulk represented Vibraxas. They broke court briefly, and Vibraxas used the recess to use his powers on the Vibrasurge facility in an attempt to destroy it, an act which caused Vibrasurge's victims, fused into a single being, to attack.

(Fantastic Force#15) - The being, called Vibravore, attacked, leaving N'Kano and the Black Panther no choice but to authorize the use of lethal force against it. Fantastic Force found another way, though, and released the creatures still living victims. After the court ruled against supporting further Fantastic Force activities, even though they ruled Vibraxas innocent, Vibraxas rejected his country and defected.

(Black Panther III#31) - Vibraxas returned to Wakanda to get help with his failing powers, and went to stay with N'Kano. When N'Kano entered Vibraxas's room, he discovered Queen Divine Justice, one of the Dora Milaje, in his bed. He told Vibraxas that shame would be brought to them all.

(Black Panther III#32 - BTS) - N'Kano revealed this shame to Zuri and others.

--Fantastic Force#5 (Fantastic Force#14 (fb), 5. 14, 15, Black Panther III#31, 32 – BTS


(Fantastic Force#14 (fb)) - R'Shumba's uncle, N'Kano, supported A'Kane, whose son, N'Kano was R'Shumba's dear friend, in attempting to recharge Wakanda's economy with the Vibrasurge project, which led to a catastrophic accident leaving A'Kane dead and her son powered as Vibraxas. Vibraxas moved to America and joined a superhuman team, angering R'Shumba.

(Fantastic Force#14) - After Vibraxas finished his Wakandan trial for an accidental murder on American soil, R'Shumba burst in the room and punched him in the jaw. Vibraxas confronted her outside and explained why he'd stayed in America all this time. He was angered when R'Shumba revealed that the Vibrasurge project had been restarted. He rushed to the project and began shaking it to the ground until his allies, Fantastic Force, stopped him. Vibraxas's powers awakened the creature, Vibravore, who attacked the country.

(Fantastic Force#15) - Vibravore was destroyed and Vibraxas ruled not guilty, though he left his country in disgust.

--Fantastic Force#14 (Fantastic Force#14 (fb), 14-15


(Fantastic Force#14 (fb)) - As a talented technologist, A'Kane planned ways to extend Wakanda's wealth and prosperity beyond the depletion of their limited Vibranium supply. Under the Vibrasurge project, she created an energy source that remained steady through controlled interaction of vibranium isotopes, interjecting a foreign isotope of Antarctic vibranium from the Savage Land. The process initially appeared self-perpetuating and stable, and she was awarded the prestigious Order of T'Chaka. A'Kane's son, N'Kano, and his god-father for whom he was named, were very proud of A'Kane. Soon, the unstable isotope began to consume the inert vibranium, causing a chain reaction that was catastrophic. An explosion ripped through the complex, killing many.

(Fantastic Force#14 (fb) - BTS) - A'Kane was killed in the initial blast.

(Black Panther III#48 (fb) - BTS) - A'Kane's husband, and Vibraxas's father, was revealed to have been a scientist at Vibrasurge that was also killed.

Sergeant Enriquez

(Fantastic Force I#7 – BTS) – Sgt. Enriquez became involved in a case involving the accidental slaying of a gang member of the Sons of Sinanju by fledgling hero Vibraxas. Vibraxas was arrested overnight then released, pending his trial. Enriquez told Vibraxas that the killing was a clear act of self-defense.

--Fantastic Force#7 (Fantastic Force#7 – BTS

Kim Po

(Fantastic Force#4) - Kim Po was a Korean shop owner in a gang neighborhood. When two thieves attempted to rob his store, a patron who happened to be the superhero Vibraxas, stopped them, but destroyed much of Po's store. Po was furious and demanded to know who would pay for the damage.

(Fantastic Force#6 (fb) - BTS) - Members of the Wakandan Lords, the black gang in the neighborhood, returned and shot Po. He was hospitalized.

(Fantastic Force#6) - Vibraxas went to visit Po, who let him know that the Korean gang, the Sons of Sinanju, with their leader Go-Devil, would retaliate against the Wakandan Lords.

(Fantastic Force#16) - Vibraxas visited the hospital again and Po stopped him from fighting with the visiting Go-Devil. Po offered Vibraxas a position in his shop.
