Did George Perez refused to draw Vibe?

COMICS JOURNAL #100 (Jul 1985)
Fantagraphics
Comic Book Legends Revealed #516
by Brian Cronin | March 27, 2015 @ 9:45 AM

COMIC LEGEND: George Perez refused to ever draw Vibe because he felt he was an offensive stereotype.

STATUS: False (but with a lot of truth to it)

In a 1985 Comics Journal interview with Heidi MacDonald, the topic of Vibe came up…

Perez: I would love to do a Legion graphic novel, if I can sit down with Paul and just work something up. Or maybe if we could think of a good story-line, actually sit down and discuss what Paul and Marv discussed without my knowledge: A Legion-Titans crossover. Of course, I’m doing that on Crisis-Earths. I’d like the JLA, I haven’t drawn Vibe yet, I have a certain bigotry towards Vibe, but eventually I’ll have to draw him.

MacDonald: (giggles) Not exactly your favorite character, eh?

Pérez: Oh, I sincerely say he’s the one character who turned me off the JLA. If nothing else, every character that was introduced was an ethnic stereotype. I couldn’t believe it. I said, “Come on now!” These characters required no thinking at all to write. And being Puerto Rican myself, I found the fact that they could use a Puerto Rican character quite obviously favorable since the one Puerto Rican characters in comic that existed, the White Tiger, is no longer a viable character. But having him be a break dancer! I mean, come on now. It’s like if there were only one black character in all of comics, are you going to make him…

MacDonald: A tap dancer.

Pérez: A tap dancer, a shoeshine boy? Particularly when you’re picking a stereotype that’s also a fad. You’re taking a chance that this guy is going to become very passe, his costume becomes passe because it’s a breakdance costume, the minute the fad fades.

MacDonald: I’m astonished that breakdancing still is popular when there’s a character based on it in comics.

Pérez: Yeah, isn’t it amazing? We usually wait until three years after the fad has died. Look at the Dazzler. Disco Dazzler.

So that is likely the origin of the story, but Perez drew Vibe in Crisis on Infinite Earths, and not just in a tiny shot in a big group scene…

HULK: FUTURE IMPERFECT TPB (22 Apr 2015)
Marvel Comics
 
Publisher: MARVEL COMICS
(W) Peter David (A) George Perez, Dale Keown (CA) Dale Keown
The Hulk has seen the future...and it is murder. Beloved Hulk writer Peter David brings readers two classic dystopian tales of earth-shaking impact. Both stories find the Hulk at the end of the Earth - and at the end of his rope! In "Future Imperfect," the Hulk is the last super power in a post-apocalyptic Earth, ruling with an iron fist as the wicked Maestro. But summoned from the past by a small band of rebels is perhaps the only being who can stand against him! And in "The End," the green-skinned titan walks alone through a wasted and barren land - and must confront the one who is easily his ultimate nemesis! These two tales of the end times surely rank among the classics in Marvel history! Collecting HULK: FUTURE IMPERFECT #1-2 and INCREDIBLE HULK: THE END.
Rated T+
